After a day on the course, sometimes the best dinner is a simple one, and a good ol’ fashioned hamburger is a dietary staple for many golfers.
If you want something more than two all beef patties on a sesame seed bun (remember that one?), we’ve put together our list of the best places in Myrtle Beach to eat a burger. If your group likes Five Guys or Red Robin, we have both, but our list contains only local restaurants.
With that in mind, here is our list of the five best local burger joints in Myrtle Beach.
There are a string of River City Cafes along the Grand Strand and you won’t go wrong at any of them. River City has 30 burgers on the menu that feature toppings ranging from ketchup and mustard to peanut butter and macaroni and cheese. You can thank me later.
Hamburgers have been on the menu for decades, but Art Burger Sushi Bar, located in downtown Myrtle Beach, provides a decidedly modern twist on a classic dish. If you are looking for a recommendation, try the Gordo, which features a local beef patty, pico de gallo, guacamole, roasted garlic siracha ranch and cheddar cheese served inside two crispy tortillas. It’s even better than it sounds.
If you are playing at Myrtle Beach National, Wild Wing, the Hackler Course or Burning Ridge, make a stop at Tongy’s Shmack House. It’s located beside Coastal Carolina University and the clientele is decidedly young – but with a regular mix of older locals who can’t get enough of some of the best burgers around. A bite of the Buster Douglas – ground beef, bacon strips, grilled red onion, BBQ and cheese – will make you feel as if your best days are still ahead of you, too.
There are Hamburger Joe’s locations in Surfside Beach and North Myrtle Beach, and both are worth a stop. Burgers are made fresh and to-order, always winning combination.
Last, but certainly not least, is Burky’s Grill in Myrtle Beach, a 50s era throwback with cheap prices, good food and fast service. If someone in your group doesn’t want a burger, the fried bologna is a winner.
