Finger Licking BBQ at Damon’s Grill
This regional chain does many things well but hangs its hat one thing - ribs (in fact, its web address is ribsribsribs.com). Throw in an oceanfront view at the Myrtle Beach store and a Barefoot Landing location close to all the action and you've got a winning recipe. Both locations are busiest in the summer months but the ribs are popular enough to draw a regular local crowd.
Damon's specializes in wet and dry-rub baby back ribs, slow smoked with a char-grilled finish that fall off the bone if you blink too hard. Order a half-rack or full rack with a wide selection of sides - fries, corn on the cob, slaw and more. Load them up with Damon's award-winning sauces or eat them au natural, but be sure to ask for extra napkins and a bone bucket.
Damon's also serves a well-rounded menu of hearty entrees like the prime rib, char-grilled steaks, and barbecued chicken. Also open for lunch, Damon's makes thick, juicy burgers, and tasty salads. A full bar is available and the desserts are delicious if you have room.
The traditional rib-shack decor combines with a beach motif to create a comfortable family friendly setting. The Myrtle Beach locale has large pane-glass windows overlooking the Atlantic Ocean, while the Barefoot Landing store overlooks Lake Barefoot. Outdoor seating is available to enjoy the views, and the crowd is mostly families and golfers who get real quiet when the ribs arrive at their tables.
