Get the Brisket!!!

Great little BBQ Joint on the Main HWY in NMB. Beer was cold and cheap, Pork Wings were good. Father had pulled pork - said it was very good. My Mother and I had beef brisket sandwiches - DELICIOUS. Two nights prior my Mom had brisket at Sticky Fingers (a chain I do like, but not for brisket... read more

I loved KT's but he went out of business this spring. I only hope he opens elswhere or re-opens in this location. It looks like the building is being renovated.

This was our 2nd trip to Myrtle Beach, and we knew the KT's was definitely on the list for a 2nd time. We missed the boss man this time around but none the less the food was just as great! No trip to Myrtle Beach would be complete without a stop at KT'S!

I'm shocked this place is still open. We had a terrible experience last year but decided to give it one more try, just in case it was a fluke. The fact that we were the only people there (besides two guys at the bar) during peak lunch time should have been our first warning. Between the time we ordered our... More

Having eaten a lot of BBQ (I'm a KCBS BBQ judge and competition BBQ cook) I have to say this ranks as the worst so far. Don't get me wrong, the lady serving was very helpful, friendly and welcoming, the place was nice and clean too, but the food really was just awful. It tasted reheated (probably in a microwave)....

My family and I arrived around 7:30 pm. We were the only customers in the place. That should have told us something. A couple/locals on the beach told us about this place for BBQ. We ordered two combo platters and shared with our two kids and had 3 Iced teas and our bill was 69.00. The food was not bad,... More

I owned a bbq restaruant and there brisket tasted really good. What really topped it off was there coleslaw some of the best ever. We got carryout and was worth the money. Bbq sauce was ok

Their hamburgers are amazing. Tender and juicy. My sister had to beef brisket and it melted in her mouth. She couldn't stop raving about its smokey BBQ flavor. You HAVE to try the fried sweet corn on the cob. TO DIE FOR. There's a full-size bar with a variety of beer and liquors. The atmosphere was perfect. So cute and... More

Pretty small restaurant, but both the service and food were very good. We will return on our next Myrtle Beach vacation.

Looking for a quick place for BBQ in N.Myrtle and found this on line; Facility Small, ranshackled building on the main drag thru old NMB; Some might say quaint, in the light of day -- it's run down, miss-matched everything -- but it looks clean. On first glance it looks more like a local beer bar. Parking in the side/back... More
