This place has burgers combinations you've never heard of. Picture this: the bun is a grilled cheese & fried egg sandwich. Layers inside: 2 burgers, cheese, bacon, fried onion strings, tomato, lettuce,mayo. PLUS a pile of fries, 2 gigantic onion rings, and a side of slaw. Ridiculously good!!! Make this a must-stop when yr in Myrtle Beach SC...
