Best BBQ Restaurants in Myrtle Beach

November 8, 2016

From ribs and steak to barbecued chicken, pork, beef, and more, everyone has their favorite BBQ dish that is finger lickin’ good.

We asked for our fans’ favorite BBQ restaurants in our inaugural Beachie awards, and we found that “barbecue” means different things to different folks. We decided to break up the BBQ category into BBQ (such as ribs) and Carolina BBQ (like pulled pork topped with your BBQ sauce of choice).
