A tip from a relative turned us on to this hidden gem, which is tucked away in a small, historic building on Myrtle Beach's old Main Street. The eclectic decor manages to be both elegant and warm at the same time. The hostess is polished, professional and welcoming, and we found all the staff to be friendly.
The food is standout - simply some of the best Mexican we've had! The menu is very small, but changes daily to take advantage of fresh seafood and produce as it is seasonally available. Dishes are the perfect blend of familiar and exotic. The fish tacos were excellent and the signature chicken and spinach quesadilla was out of this world!
The prices, while on the high side, are certainly competitive for this tourist town. You could easily spend as much eating at a restaurant of much lesser quality. We felt the food, service and ambiance made it well worth spending a few extra dollars here.
One caveat - it doesn't seem to be a family place. Although the restaurant was thoroughly accommodating and friendly to our small children (the waitress even brought crayons and coloring books to our squirmy 4-year-old) the atmosphere is probably more appealing for older children, teens and adults. Fortunately, Myrtle Beach has plenty of other tot-friendly locations, and Sun City Cafe doesn't have to try to be something it's not. It's perfect the way it is!
Overall, an excellent experience and we will definitely go back!
