We can’t possibly be the only ones who love digging into to some serious grub when we’re on vacation. That’s a part of the fun! Enjoying sun and sand, maybe a few drinks, working up a big appetite, and eating at your favorite Myrtle Beach restaurants.

We took a non-scientific poll of visitors to Myrtle Beach and locals, and came up with this list of the top five places to get a delicious burger in all of Myrtle Beach. Take a look at the list, and get ready to chow down!

River City Café
This is, hands-down, the most popular and most beloved burger joint on the Grand Strand. Fortunately, we also have a River City located right next door to Ocean Reef, so it also happens to be the most convenient of all the burger hotspots at the beach! Whether you like a plain old burger and bun or a crazy kitchen sink platter, with a burger stacked high as a tower with an improbable array of tastiness, from onion rings to grilled cheese sandwiches, Rive City is a Myrtle Beach institution sure to please.

Burky’s Grill
Looking for something simpler, the kind of place that harkens back to the good ole days? Give Burky’s a try. It’s fast food like they did it in the 50s – great prices, quick service with a smile, and dang delicious burgers, as well as some other specialties like Cincinnati-style chili (and the 3-way with spaghetti, chili and cheese for only $3.60), BBQ sandwiches, fried bologna sandwiches and fantastic shakes and ice cream.

Five Guys Burgers and Fries
It’s not unique to Myrtle Beach, but it is pretty tasty, and pretty popular. You’ve got your choice of burgers as-you-like-em, dogs, and sandwiches, as well as fries (regular or Cajun) and bulk peanuts.

This is another option that’s not exactly local to Myrtle Beach—it’s in the Carolinas, as well as in Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia—but it is a favorite, in part for its great prices and vast menu—including a long list of “fancy milkshakes.” It’s located in Conway on 501, so it’s a great stop on your way to the beach if you just can’t hold out long enough to hit River City Café.
