Pops, Arcadia, OK

Pops opened in the summer of 2007 but despite it’s relatively new status struck a chord with many new and old fans of Route 66 alike.

It may be more glossy than the usual Route 66 restaurant or soda bar but the 66-foot illuminated soda bottle out front (the worlds largest soda bottle) certainly gives the place that familiar touch of kitsch! The roadside soda bottle weighs 4 tons and although appears to be made from neon tubes, is actually lit by LEDs, providing a spectacular light show each night.

Pops boasts a strong selection of burgers, hot dogs, sandwiches, salads and home-style dinners including a mouth watering chicken quesadilla and beautifully prepared chicken fried steak.

Boasting over 500 kinds of soda, including their very own Round Barn Root Beer, and a restaurant serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner, Pops makes for a unique rest stop and a welcome addition to the Route 66 experience. Visitors recommend Pops for it's generous portions and friendly waiting staff, as well as it's great atmosphere. Pops will certainly be a hit with the kids and is a welcoming stop for families. The gift shop sells a very good variety of Route 66 memorabilia as well as your personally-selected six-packs of bottled soda.

“A new icon on the old road, but very cool especially after dark. It’s in Arcadia, OK, close to the round barn”.

About Driving Route 66

What started as a record of my personal Route 66 experience has grown into an active community of Route 66 veterans and newcomers alike. This website relies entirely on the experiences of its users so please feel free to recommend your own personal favourites.

Every Route 66 road trip is unique, and this site is in no way intended to be a definitive guide to the old road. However, I sincerely hope it offers a starting point to anyone planning their own Route 66 vacation.
