Outstanding burritos... with or without the wrap. For those counting carbs you can get the burrito fixin's in a bowl (small or large). Place is a little strange, but friendly. Could use another half dozen tables. Perfect for takeout. Self-serve soda fountain has beverages with real sugar instead of corn syrup (yeah, they also have diet). The review where the people complained about the staff being a bit unfriendly when they arrived between 9:30 - 10:00 pm should note that Poppo's closes at 9:00 pm... I would probably be unfriendly if someone came into my business more than a half hour after closing time!

When I first walked in, I noticed it was "Chipotle-style" but was soon pleasantly surprised at how delicious everything was! My meal was bursting with flavor and plenty to eat. The staff were not overly friendly or helpful, but the food and atmosphere made up for it.

This is a great 'quick serve' restaurant where you can walk up and order your ingredients in your taco/burrito/quesadilla (similar to Chipotle). The food is very tasty. And on this last visit, I saw they were offering a vegetarian burrito with tempeh. Loved it!
Their location is in a quaint building on Pine Ave. They have some indoor seating as well as outdoor seating on their front porch and even provide fans to help handle these hot Florida summers. They offer beer and real sugar sodas.
There aren't too many quick places to grab a bite to eat (where you don't have to have table service) on the tip of the island and we definitely appreciate finding such a great option.

located on Pine Avenue, Anna Maria, this little taco restaurant is great. You choose your own hot and cold fillings and add guacamole or sour cream at a small extra cost. One burrito is enough to fill you up for an evening meal. Craft beers and sodas are available and the server was very helpful and chatty. There is a bar with stools to sit at inside, but some more seating would be good. Will definitely eat there again.

We called into Poppo's after a hectic day and hoped to get a snack and a drink for two adults and two children (12 & 13). We were ignored when we arrived receiving no greeting at all. It seemed as if everyone wanted to go home despite the time being between 9.30-10pm. Food was average and bottled beer was expensive. We sat outside where everything looked a little unkempt and unloved. We wouldn't go back.
