This is our go to restaurant in MB. Best variety of burgers. Turkey burger is my favorite. My husband loves their chilli. Fabulous fried zucchini, the best I have ever had. Free peanuts in the shell. Big burgers, we often split one between the two of us. Highly recommend.

We ate at this location because it was easy walking distance from our hotel, just 2 blocks away. There was no wait on a Thursday in August. The older kids thought all the graffiti and license plates were awesome. I told husband he should have brought one of his old vanity plates to be immortalized. I had a black sharpie,... More

I ordered a bowl of chili and a grilled ham and cheese sandwich. The chili still had cold spots in it and the rest was luke warm at the most...could not eat it. This was unusual as the burgers are normally the best. I should have stuck with what I knew best and had a burger.

How can you not love a place that has peanut shells all over the floor! Great off beach location. Great after a round of golf. We never miss this location when in Myrtle Beach.

This is pretty much a burger joint but a fun burger joint. Staff are great. Food is great and the portions are generous. Great family place but does sell beer.

We had been driving around Myrtle Beach looking for a good outside seafood "dive" on the beach and found River City cafe. Knew nothing about it but decided to take a chance. We were lucky enough to be able to sit outside. Our waitress was great, considering they were slammed with patrons, but she got our food out to us... More

You can't go wrong with the River City Cafe on N. 21st. The Rueben burger is awesome! I have ordered it the last three visits. You don't even need a side because the burger is huge and you have to munch on pre meal peanuts. Prices are so reasonable. Great family place!

As a lunch choice, thanks to Trip Advisor, we found the best burger joint we have ever been to! With a large selection to satisfy any taste, this place makes it great! To put it over the top, our server made perfect recommendations based on the little bit of information we gave and the questions we had. Thank you Tammy... More
