“Best BBQ I've ever eaten!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 19, 2013 via mobile

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 just right. The service was fast and always attentive. Good times and good music! Will definitely make a trip back for some amazing BBQ at Big KT's!

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

“GREAT SERVICE OK FOOD”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 26, 2013

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 as it's too close to the street. Hard surfaces thru-out so if the TV bothers you can pretty much hear everyones conversation instead.

Service
Stopped in early evening and only one couple at the tables and 2 guys at the bar. You sit anywhere. Warm, quick greeting by the one waitress/bar tender. When I let my first full bottle of beer slip (it stuck to the table) and it spilled few oz's, she was quick like a rabbit to replace it even though I told it wasn't necessary. No hassles - no hovering over the eventually lone diner.

Food
Average BBQ; Had a brisket (large) sandwich with a side of cole slaw; It appears they don't use much if any rub so the flavor was all from what sauce one puts on it. A little skimpy on the meat -- the bun was the "large" part of the sandwich. Good flavor anyway -- tender and freshly cut -- moist and not dry. The slaw was just food processor cabbaged -- a little too minched for my taste which was very dry -- no dressing?
The beer was ice cold -- the way to serve it.
$9.00 total -- about average for average food.
Quick check and a loud thank you from a big guy behind the bar as I left.

“BBQ at the beach”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed May 20, 2013

I shared the big combo platter with a friend on 5/16/13. The ribs & sliced beef were great, but the pulled pork and chicken were just ok. Service was good, but their draft beer would have been better served in a real glass instead of a plastic cup. I will most likely give K.T. 's another chance as it is near to my friend's beach home, but I try something else from the menu instead of the combo plate.
