“Above average burger joint”
Reviewed April 11, 2014

We stopped by Pawley's after a trip to Myrtle Beach with the recommendation of two local college kids. We placed a to go order so we could hit the road quickly. The service was a little slow but not too bad. This is not your average low cost college burger place since the average hamburger was in the $9 to $11 range. I will say the burgers, fries, and rings were tasty, but not at the expense of driving a round trip hour to try their food. The medium burgers were a little over cooked but still pretty good. The special beer battered onion rings with mild spicy sauce were worth their $6 price tag.

“fun and kinda famous”
Reviewed March 29, 2014

co workers went their after training session because it was featured on the show diners drive through and dives. It was half price burger nights and the college students flooded the place . so we had to wait for our group to be seated and it was very busy .Summary great burgers, fried pickles and tacos. great place to hang out.

“Awesome Burgers”
Reviewed March 22, 2014 via mobile

Stop here after going on a tour of USC. Got the Hot and Spicy hamburger. Burger was good and the Onion rings , and sweet potato fries are also very good. If you are looking for a good Burger spot. I would stop by here. Crawfish appetizers are also good.

“Mediocre food, slow service”
Reviewed March 16, 2014 via mobile

Overall I am giving them three stars simply because they comped the entire meal for four people. That's the good part.

The bade part is that every dish we ordered was either burned, cold, or soggy. The service was very slow even though they were not full. It took 45 minutes after we ordered to get our food. The onion rings were cold and soggy. The fish tacos were cold and the fish was hard and dry. The fries looked like they were the burned bits and pieces scraped from the bottom of the warming bin.

Very disappointed, won't give them a second chance even though they comped us.
