Best Carolina-Style BBQ Restaurants in Myrtle Beach

 
On a plate or on a bun- Carolina-style BBQ is delicious any way!
On a plate or on a bun- Carolina-style BBQ is delicious any way!
 

When we Carolinians say “BBQ,” we’re usually talking about slow-cooked pork, shredded or sliced, and topped with one of a few sauces. (Vinegar sauce is an Eastern North Carolina tradition with fans throughout the Carolinas, and South Carolina is famous for its mustard-based Carolina Gold Sauce.)

In last year’s Beachie awards there was some confusion as to what BBQ meant to our fans, so this year we decided to break the BBQ category down to Carolina-style BBQ and BBQ such as ribs and barbecue chicken.

Check out this list of what our fans voted as the best Carolina-style BBQ restaurants in Myrtle Beach. Also, be sure to check out the list of best BBQ restaurants, here.
