Do you ever feel like you were born in the wrong era? I know I’m not alone here because I know a lot of people feel as though they can relate to different time periods. If I had to choose a time to live in, it would be the 50s! I just love the way everything looked from the clothing to the kitchen appliances.
So I may be a little biased when I tell you The Pop Shop, located in Collingswood, NJ is one of the most fun places to dine!
I will forewarn you that it is a very busy place. Especially on the weekends! So expect to wait a little bit before being seated. And there are tons of kids because it is a family friendly restaurant, so if you don’t like kids then don’t even bother. But, Collingswood is a really cute town with a bunch of shops to check out so if you don’t mind waiting there is entertainment nearby.
The menus are newspapers so not only is it fun to read but also looks really funny when you glance around the room and everyone is reading a newspaper.
Jay and I visited with his sister Tory and her friend Hunter while they were on spring break.
I started off with an unsweetened iced tea.
Tory and Hunter had milkshakes!
As if I didn’t love The Pop Shop enough, Bobby Flay also did a Throwdown there! They are known for their grilled cheese sandwiches, which is what the Throwdown was all about and Bobby won. His sandwich was 5 B’s which included brie, goat cheese, bacon and tomato! You can still order the sandwich anytime you please :)
I had a small caesar side salad. It was pretty basic but tasty.
I had the Newtown, which is cheddar cheese, grainy mustard and caramelized onions.
Jay had Maryland fries: french fries with Old Bay seasoning.
And a create your own chicken sandwich. He chose chicken, cheddar cheese and bacon.
Tory had some sliders.
And mozzarella fries.
Hunter had the Eldridge which was mozzarella, sundried tomatoes, pesto, and house dressing.
As always we had a great experience at The Pop Shop and my craving for a great grilled cheese was satisfied. While my love for the 50s may never fully be filled, next time I need my fix I know exactly where I’ll go ;)
