Often times, the best beach grub can be found not by what places are advertised but by simply asking a local resident where to go. Have you ever been curious about the places Myrtle Beach residents just can’t get enough of? These Myrtle Beach restaurants might be off the beaten path but are definitely worth a trip if you want the best homemade eats.

Check out our rundown of Myrtle Beach local’s favorite restaurants:

 

Best Myrtle Beach Burger

Winner: River City Café Best Burger in Myrtle Beach
With several Grand Strand locations, you won’t have to venture far to get your hands on a juicy, hand-pressed patty from this local favorite. Known for fresh ingredients and creative concoctions, River City Café offers more than 25 signature burgers to choose from including the “Nacho Crunch Burger”, “Fried Mac and Cheese Burger”, and “Peanut Butter Burger”. If you prefer something a little tamer, try classics like the “Bacon Cheeseburger” or “Black-N-Bleu Burger” or just make your own one-of-a-kind creation.

Honorable Mention: Burkey’s; Art Burger Sushi Bar; Hamburger Joe’s

 

Best Myrtle Beach BBQ

Winner: Little Pigs BBQ
Little Pigs fits the bill when you think of a true “hole in the wall” local dive. Don’t let that keep you away, though, as this family run restaurant serves up the most succulent, fall-off-the-bone tender barbecue along the strand. Both locations (one in Socastee and another in Myrtle Beach) house smoke and roast all the meats and offer an impressive slew of hearty sides to match. The menu is simple but jam packed with a flavor punch and includes options like pulled pork or chicken, whole or half rack of ribs, and chili as entrees with sides like mac and cheese, sweet potato casserole, baked beans, slaw, green beans, and potato salad – to name a few.

Honorable Mention: Simply Southern Smokehouse; Prosser’s BBQ; Hog Heaven

 

Best Myrtle Beach Seafood

Winner: Wahoo’s Fish House
Located on the south end of the strand in the Seafood Capital of the state (Murrells Inlet), Wahoo’s Fish House offers fresh, local seafood – plain and simple. Selections range from local oysters, fried calamari, she crab soup, lump crab cakes, and lobster fritters to seared tuna, salmon, mahi mahi, scallops, and succulent fried seafood baskets. Enjoy tantalizing bites as you gaze over the very spot that your seafood came from as Wahoo’s sits inlet-front and offers spectacular views of the marsh. This local favorite is well worth the short drive south!
