Nice area (Murrell's Inlet). Looks like an old place. A lot of car plates everywhere. The service is friendly (you can ask a lot of questions). The menu is complete and varied. The quality is nice. You have difficulty to open your mouth that wide to put the burger in. You can have fries, sweet potatoes fries or huge ion... More

Hopefully once the season is in full swing things will get better. It was a gorgeous day and they would serve outside although they had plenty of help. We, as well as others, did takeout and sat outside and ate. The drinks were okay but the food was horrible. It was all fried, very greasy and tasteless. I would go... More

With the license plates and autographs on the wall, the brown paper "table cloths" and plenty of tee shirts for sale, perhaps the adequate burgers and such can be overlooked. Food is at best okay, there are many other burger joints to try first.

We went here for lunch. The sandwiches are HUGE!!! I always finish my meal and this time I just couldn't. The atmosphere is very casual beach… peanut shells can be thrown on the floor. The staff is very nice and they have outside picnic table for warm weather outside dining. If you want a very relaxed place for lunch this... More

Fun, funky decor! Five Stars from four 15 year old boys!!! They LOVED the burgers & had a blast reading the license plates! Bonus, they all bought t-shirts to remember the trip!

Dark eclectic interior. We watched a group come up on the porch, look inside and then leave. Big mistake! The peanuts are great. Nobody in our group had burgers. The oyster poh boys were good (according to my companions). I am not into :"fried" so I had a chef salad. The meat was dumped on the top, but that was... More

big ole sloppy, juicy, delicious burgers with the works, then don't miss this place. We split the OMG burger with fries and it was all we could do to finish that monstrosity of meat. Fun place to eat and a pretty good value. Sure our burger cost 15 bucks but it was like a foot tall. If I could eat... More
