River City Cafe Food

River City Cafe is exactly where you find huge, fresh, never frozen, burgers made from a secret recipe stacked on heavenly soft and buttery buns and piled high with all the freshest, highest quality toppings available. Every item in this cafe is prepared by hand from chopping and battering onions for our giant onion rings, using fresh white meat chicken breast for our crispy panko breaded tenders, to tossing french fries in salt and cooking up fresh bacon for your favorite burger. If you want to know what makes this burger joint so famous, look no further than the selection of over 25 signature burgers! In the mood for just a cheese burger, or a turkey burger? We’ve got it! Along with creations like the Nacho Crunch burger that’s loaded down with Doritos, jalapeños, guacamole, pepper jack cheese, the R.C. Burger loaded with homemade Texas chili, jalapeños, bacon, sautéed mushrooms, plenty of cheese and all the other good fixin’s, or even the Peanut Butter Banana burger that’s slathered with irresistible creamy peanut butter and piled with bananas! The feast doesn’t stop there though with plenty more to choose from like a juicy chicken breast sandwich or veggie burger, a helping of hand cut style fries dowsed in cheese, chili, or gravy, a fried catfish platter, or a tasty BBQ sandwich or patty melt. There’s just too many great choices to name, so be sure to check out the menu for the full selection. Want a drink to wash all of this down with? Grab a great RCC cocktail or frosty beer from the bar and kick back enjoying your new favorite burger joint.

  • Best burgers in Myrtle Beach

    My favorite location is by the swing bridge in Socastee. The people are always friendly and helpful but the main thing is the burgers. I don't know what it is, but the burgers are incredible and still affordable. Thank you for making the best burgers on the beach year after year
