Amazing Burgers

We always visit this location when vacationing in Myrtle Beach. Food is always excellent and really a good value. Most of the time, the service is very good as well. Will continue returning to this establishment every chance we get!

Looks like a beach shack....but the food is amazing!!!! There is always a wait...however, they give you peanuts to snack on and you can order drinks while you wait. You won't be disappointed!!!!

We ate at the North Myrtle Beach location...near Sand/Ocean Dunes Resort because the other location near the main MB area had a long wait. The décor is unique ...we got the Texas style burger and a typical... More

With all of the locations you are just a few minutes from one of the restaurants. Peanuts on the floor along with great burgers will make your day.

Plenty types of burgers to choose from. Small capacity indoor with outside seating. Would be nice if the stayed open later. We've Tried Twice now at 10PM on a Friday. We were told they were closed. FRIDAY NIGHT AT MYRTLE BEACH. CLOSED. MOST PEOPLE GET IN LATE TO CHECK IN NEED A PLACE CLOSE TO THE HOTEL TO EAT.
