Best burger place in Myrtle Beach

My wife had a turkey burger and I went with the veggie burger, They were both delicious and very fresh. Great stress free atmosphere and fun place to eat in. We did not get anything beyond the burger and it was plenty to fill us up. I would definitely go back

View from the outside looks shady, but really good burger joint! I would go again next time I'm in Myrtle Beach for sure.

If you are in the area this is one of the places you have to visit. It offers a very relaxed casual dining experience and all of the peanuts you can eat and the shells you can step on like fresh rushes from the yester centuries. Their burgers are fantastic although I can only eat the child size. The fries... More

OK, this is a burger persons stop. The onion rings are huge and so you should not miss them. Peanuts are offered free as a starter so you are entertained until your food arrives. Don't worry, you won't have much time to wait. This is on business 17 in Murrells Inlet but away from most restaurants. A family place that... More

The food here is awesome...they have such a great assortment of sandwiches hot off the grill, always fresh never frozen!! They have great service and are always friendly. It has a warm nostalgia feel to the place with the old license plates and heck you never know come find your state!! I found mine!!

River City is a rustic place with walls filled with license plates from around the country. While you are waiting, there are plenty of peanuts in the shell to eat. This is essentially a burger place with great burgers, fries and onion rings. The "kitchen sink" burger is a masterpiece that is big enough for 2. The service is good... More

The restaurant wasn't that busy so I don't know why it took so long to get our food. The Mahi sandwich was good, the fries too salty, the cole slaw not good. My husband had the grilled ham and cheese which was too salty as were his fries. The bread seemed to be more toasted than grilled. Wish we had... More
