Nothing says “vacation time” quite like indulging in a decadent burger, grilled to juicy perfection (especially after a day on the beach). Though many resorts in the area do not offer on-site grill facilities, there are still plenty of ways to get your fix of this summer classic. Skip the usual fast food joints, you can get that anywhere! Instead, try out one of the signature Myrtle Beach spots that are a favorite among visitors and locals alike. Check out our roundup of the best burgers in Myrtle Beach:

Burkey’s Grill

So yes, we did tell you to skip the fast food joints…but Burkey’s is an exception. There’s nothing usual about this burger joint that has been a Myrtle Beach staple for years. Locals will tell you; you aren’t a true Myrtle Beach resident until you’ve dined at Burkey’s. You’ll feel like you’re going back in time to a 1950’s diner. Their burgers are great and you can’t leave without getting some ice cream for dessert! Burkey’s Grill is open Monday through Satuday from 10:30am – 9pm and Sunday from 10:30am – 8:00pm. Check out their menu here!

Carolina Roadhouse

Located a few miles north of us, Carolina Roadhouse might be known for their delicious bread…but have you tried their burgers? These 10oz burgers will definitely leave you anything but hungry, and if you’re up for trying something new The Monster Burger is on another level (think chili hot dog and back yard burger combined). The great thing about this restaurant is that if anyone in your party is not in the mood for a burger, there are plenty of other delicious options to try! Carolina Roadhouse is open Sunday through Thursday from 11am-10pm and Friday and Saturday from 11am – 11pm. Call 843-497-9911 for more information or visit their website to view the menu.

Wicked Tuna

Wicked Tuna’s new 2nd Avenue Pier location recently opened and it has not disappointed! This Grill and Sushi Bar might be known for its fresh catch and extravagant rolls, but their Prime Ground Burger is a showstopper as well. It is 8oz. of USDA prime ground filet and ribeye and while everyone is different, we highly recommend adding bacon. Wicked Tuna is open 7 days a week from 11am-10pm. Visit their website to make reservations!

Art Burger Sushi Bar

A more recent addition to the downtown Myrtle Beach restaurant lineup, ART Burger Sushi Bar has quickly become a favorite among visitors and locals alike.

To stick with the theme, each burger is named after a famous artist, like the “Rockwell All-American”, which is a traditional cheeseburger with toppings, or the “Remington”, which offers house BBQ sauce, crispy fried onions, and smoked cheddar.

Holiday Inn Oceanfront offers several room types that include a full in-room kitchen that makes meal time a breeze! Kitchens include a full refrigerator, making it easy to store food for a long trip, an oven / stove, microwave, coffeemaker, and all of the plates, dishes, and utensils you could need. You can still eat out a few times during the trip, but greatly reducing the amount of times you eat out will make a huge impact on the budget.

 

Travel With Family or Friends

If you are a couple or small family and don’t mind traveling with a crowd, consider cutting even more costs by taking a vacation with another group of family or friends! Holiday Inn offers several rooms that are large enough for 6 – 8 guests, family playing on the beachmaking it easy to split a room. Even if you don’t want to share a room, traveling with others does reduce the costs in other areas and is definitely something to consider if you have close family or friends who also love the beach.

 

Skip The Oceanfront View

Sure, an oceanfront room provides fantastic view of the beach – no one is going to dispute that. However, opting for an oceanview room as opposed to an oceanfront room could save you big in the long run. Though prices vary, the difference could be $20 – $30 a night. That might not sound like a lot at first, but when you multiple that by several nights it could be the difference in several hundred dollars. And, oceanview rooms still provide scenic views and a private balcony, so you will still get Atlantic views and outdoor space.
