Taste Tour: POPS

Taste-Tour-POPS-1-Design-Crush

It’s been a few months since our last Taste Tour and I’m happy to break the silence with POPS, a place that you have to make a stop at if you’re ever in or driving through Oklahoma City.

POPS is on Route 66 just off of I-35, and you’ll know you’re there when you spot this gigantic 66′ tall pop bottle and straw sculpture. When the sun sets its LED lights kick on and the ensuing light show is something to behold.

The sculpture is a hint at what lies inside, and the lined glass walls of POPS is the big reveal – over 600 varieties of pop! Over 1,000 bottles line the shelves on two of the building’s four walls.

POPS also has a great 50s style diner menu, including a Shake Shop that features ten hand-dipped flavors and endless float options.

The walls of POPS are cantilevered, and several of the dining tables sit directly under them giving a great overhead view. (If you look closely you can see the glue that holds the display bottles in place and keeping them safe from grabby hands!)

The entire site of POPS is really something to experience. So if you ever find yourself nearby take the time to stop in.

    I love Pops! I showed my husband Pops and the Round Barn (also on Route 66) on our last visit to OKC. It is definitely a must see even if it is a little bit of a drive.
