Top 10 Best Burgers in Myrtle Beach
Whether you’ve had a long day on the beach or a late night of fun, a delicious burger can hit the spot like nothing else. Everyone has their idea of the perfect burger: big and juicy, flat-top grilled, smothered in toppings or just the patty.
Below we've listed 10 of the best burger spots in Myrtle Beach based on the thousands of votes from visitors and locals in the inaugural Myrtle Beach awards (AKA The Beachies) in 2016.
Consistently voted a locals favorite for burgers, River City Cafe serves up a variety of options from the traditional cheeseburger to the adventurous to the outrageous. The house cheeseburger is a thick patty served with your choice of cheese, lettuce, onions, tomato, pickles, mustard and mayo. You can also try the Peanut Butter Burger, topped with creamy peanut butter; the Nacho Crunch Burger, topped with guacamole, Doritos and jalapeños; the Fried Mac & Cheese burger topped with a loaf of fried mac and cheese; or the Surf-N-Turf topped with fried popcorn shrimp in a spicy chili glaze. If you want outrageous, check out the “Kitchen Sink” and “OMG” burgers. You can substitute a veggie patty, turkey patty or chicken breast for the beef on any burger.
The Five Guys menu is simple: Burgers, dogs, fries and a few sandwiches. And it is delicious. Choose from a little burger (single patty), burger (double patty) or bacon burger, and then add all the toppings your heart desires at no extra charge. Choices include mayo, lettuce, pickles, tomatoes, grilled onions, grilled mushrooms, relish, onions, peppers, steak sauce, BBQ sauce and more. The buns are grilled on the flat-top alongside the burgers and toppings. Vegetarians won’t find a veggie patty at Five Guys, but they do make a veggie sandwich with or without cheese — basically all the burgers toppings you want without the burger. (It’s tastier than it sounds.) The fries are the perfect complement to the burgers, and they are served in generous portions. A board in the restaurant will tell you where that day’s potatoes were grown, which is a nice touch. Allergen warning: Five Guys serves bulk peanuts.
Jimmy Buffett’s song is the inspiration for the burger-focused Cheeseburger in Paradise in Myrtle Beach. There are plenty of non-burger options on the menu, but meat lovers can jump right to the main attraction. All burgers are cooked to order and made with never-frozen beef. (You can also choose a chicken breast, turkey patty or veggie patty instead of beef for any burger). The house special is the Cheeseburger in Paradise with pulled pork, cheddar, fried onion straws, fried pickles and horseradish sauce. For a more traditional burger, go for the All-American with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, red onion and pickles. Other options include the Aloha with teriyaki sauce, cheddar, grilled onions and pineapple salsa; The Good Egg with bacon and a fried egg; and The Moonshiner, which includes a bourbon glazed patty, bourbon onions, bacon and bleu cheese.
Offering a nice mix of taste and value, Hamburger Joe’s is a favorite among burger fanatics at the beach. The thin patties are fresh — never frozen — and cooked on a flat-top grill. Cheeseburgers include a choice of mayo, pickles, lettuce, onions and tomato. Other menu options include hot dogs, corn dogs, grilled cheese and BBQ.
Take in some of the best views in Myrtle Beach while feasting on a fresh burger at Oceanfront Bar & Grill on the Myrtle Beach Boardwalk. In addition to a menu that is full of items like appetizers, salads, seafood, and more, Oceanfront Bar & Grill boasts classic burgers that will make your mouth water. Listen to the waves while trying the Cheeseburger (all the way with lettuce, tomato, and mayo), the Bacon Cheeseburger, or the Double Deluxe with two hamburger patties and two slices of cheese topped with lettuce, tomato, and mayo.
Beach House Bar & Grill
Located in downtown Myrtle Beach, Beach House Bar and Grill is a great hangout for locals as well as those vacationing in Myrtle beach. Walk over to the Beach House after spending a day at the beach, or venture here after exploring the area for some delicious burgers. Sit inside and watch whatever game is on TV, or enjoy the sights and sounds of Ocean Boulevard by sitting out on the deck while sinking your teeth into one of the Beach House’s signature burgers. Burgers in the menu here include classics like the Hamburger or the Big Cheese (hamburger covered in American cheese), as well as the Chili Cheeseburger, the Philly Cheese Steak burger, the Mushroom Swiss Burger, and the Southwest Burger (smothered with jalapenos, mushrooms, sautéed onions, and American Cheese).
If you’re looking for a unique burger experience, head on over to ART Burger Sushi Bar in downtown Myrtle Beach. Works by local artists adorn the walls of this modern restaurant, and the food here is considered art as well. The menu here focuses on burgers and sushi, as the name suggests, and each delicious burger is named after something artsy like The Dali (ground beef patty, fried pickles, avocado ranch, lettuce, and tomato), the Da Vinci (falafel veggie burger with hummus, tabbouleh, and goddess dressing), the Carvaggio (ground lamb, cucumber tzatziki, lettuce and tomato on pita bread), and many other unique options.
The name says it all: BurgerFi is all about the burgers, and this eatery means business. BugerFi is a national chain that is widely recognized for their freshly made, succulent burgers that the whole family can enjoy. While visiting the Surfside Beach area, burger fans can indulge in tasty dishes at BurgerFi. The menu features some no-frills, classic burgers like the BurgerFi Burger, BurgerFi Cheeseburger and the BurgerFi Bacon Cheeseburger, as well as more unique options like the Conflicted Burger (natural Angus burger, veggie burger, American & white cheddar cheeses, lettuce, tomato, and BurgerFi sauce), the Breakfast All Day Burger (natural Angus burger, American cheese, bacon, maple syrup, fried egg, hash brown, grilled onions, and ketchup), and the ever-so-fancy The CEO (double Wagyu & brisket blend burger, homemade candied bacon-tomato jam, trufle aioli, and aged Swiss cheese).
Duffy’s Tavern (located at the Bowery in downtown Myrtle Beach) is a favorite spot for locals and visitors alike. For over 50 years, this casual bar and eatery has been serving up hot and tasty food, seven days a week, and is known as the place with the “best burgers in town.” Duffy’s burgers include options like the Big Daddy Burger, the Ultimate Big Daddy Cheeseburger (1/2 lb fresh Angus burger topped with American or Swiss cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mayo, mustard, and ketcup), Randy’s Bacon Cheeseburger, Teddy’s Mushroom Swiss Burger, Mark’s Blue Cheese Burger, and more. Brave patrons will try The Eighth Wonder, which is a full pound of fresh Angus burger topped with double bacon, American cheese, lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mayo, mustard, and ketchup on a grilled bun, served with fries and onion rings.
Peaches Corner is a Myrtle Beach staple that has been around since 1937 and has even appeared on television shows like Flip My Food. This casual little diner is known for their boardwalk cuisine that is wonderful after a long day at the beach, or whenever you’re hungry! Some of the most popular items at Peaches Corner include their “famous burgers,” which include the Peaches Burger (double cheeseburger), the Bacon Cheeseburger (with lettuce, tomato, and mayo), and the Burger Basket (two beef patties with cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, and mayo, served with fries).
