Best BBQ Restaurants in Myrtle Beach

BBQ lovers are in for a treat at these delicious eateries in the Myrtle Beach area.
BBQ lovers are in for a treat at these delicious eateries in the Myrtle Beach area.

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.)

However, when we asked for our fans’ favorite BBQ restaurants in our inaugural Beachie awards, we found that “barbecue” means different things to different folks. Many voted for eateries who serve delicious ribs and other grilled specialties.

The result is a tasty list with plenty to choose from no matter where you call home or what you call barbecue.

Carolina Roadhouse

Carolina Roadhouse 4617 N Kings Hwy, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

This popular eatery serves up a variety of steaks and seafood, and it was also our fans’ top pick for barbecue. The famous Roadhouse ribs are prepared with a charred exterior and fall right off the bone.  Choose from a single or double rack of Danish Baby Back ribs; a slow roasted BBQ reef; or the house special prime rib. BBQ beef and chicken sandwiches are also available.

Sticky Fingers Smokehouse

Sticky Fingers Smokehouse 2461 Coastal Grand Circle, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

In the world of barbecue, Sticky Fingers has a little something for everyone. Sticky Fingers offers ribs, wings and BBQ in a variety of delicious combinations. Choose from pulled pork or ribs — or a combo of the two — and top it with your choice of five sauces. Lunch specials, burgers and salads are also available as are several Southern-style desserts.

Damon’s Grill

Damon’s Grill 2985 S. Ocean Blvd. , Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

With the URL, Damon’s gives visitors a pretty good idea of what they’re all about. Ribs come in original BBQ and spicy BBQ and are served in half or full racks. You can also pair ribs with Damon’s BBQ chicken breast. Steaks, sandwiches, salads and burgers are also options.

Little Pigs BBQ

Little Pigs BBQ 6102 Frontage Road, Myrtle Beach, SC 29577

Locals rave that Little Pigs has the best BBQ in town — and they are talking about the pulled-pork variety. Served with or without a bun, Little Pigs’ BBQ comes with a choice of two sides and either a mustard, vinegar or tomato-based sauce. For a hungry crowd, Little Pigs offers bulk takeout and family packs. Other menu items include burgers, grilled cheese and chicken fingers.
