Where to Find the Best Burgers in Myrtle Beach
While spending a day at the beach, shopping around downtown, or exploring some of the great attractions around the area, you are sure work up an appetite. There is no better way to take a break and refuel than to sit down and enjoy a good old fashion burger. Or, better yet, a decked out, piled-high take on the classic. No matter what kind of burger you’re in the mood for, Myrtle Beach has got a burger place for you. Here are just a few of the top places to grab a delicious, juicy burger during your trip to the beach:
River City Café
There is a reason River City Café has seven locations in the short stretch from North Myrtle Beach down to Murrells Inlet. This local restaurant has a huge menu of great, fresh burgers. Looking for an original burger? Order up the Nacho Crunch burger topped with guacamole, Doritos, jalapenos, pepper jack cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and a spicy chipotle mayo. Seafood lover? There is a burger for you too - the Surf-N-Turf burger has fried popcorn shrimp tossed in a spicy chili glaze, topped with pepper jack cheese, lettuce, and tomato. With a dozen more burgers to choose from like the Grilled Onion cheeseburger, California Pizza burger, and the “Original” and “House” burgers, River City is sure to impress the burger connoisseur in your life.
Cheeseburger in Paradise
When it comes to finding the best burger at the beach, Jimmy Buffett’s Cheeseburger in Paradise on 72nd Ave. N. Kings Hwy is well worth the five mile drive from Coral Beach Resort. This place has some of the most delicious specialty burgers along the Grand Strand and maybe even the entire east coast. Their menu is packed with great choices, including the Three Little Piggies burger prepared with a bacon infused patty, cheddar cheese, BBQ pulled pork, and sliced bacon. The Moonshiner burger is slathered with a bourbon glazed patty topped with bourbon onion, bacon, and blue cheese crumbles; or, it you’re looking for just a classic cheeseburger, the All-American burger with American cheese, lettuce, tomatoes, sliced red onion and pickles is the way to go. No matter what burger you pick, you’re sure to leave here satisfied.
Located on the corner of 9th Ave. and Ocean Blvd. in downtown Myrtle Beach, Peaches Corner has been serving locals and visitors for over 75 years. Originally opened in 1937, you can bet that Peaches has had a long time to perfect the menu to please the variety of guests that walk through their doors. While they do have specialty burgers like the Frank-N-Burger topped with mustard, chili, onions, cheddar cheese, and a split hot dog, perhaps the best burger on the menu is their good old-fashion Peaches burger, a double cheeseburger with lettuce, tomatoes, onions, and pickles. Stop in while walking around downtown and taste why Peaches has stood the test of time.
Home of the “World’s Greatest Hamburger,” Fuddruckers definitely makes this list for best burgers at the beach. With a number of specialty burgers like the Inferno burger with spicy jalapenos, grilled onions, and pepper jack cheese, and a full toppings and sauce bar for custom burger creations, Fuddruckers is a burger lovers paradise. Choose from a 1/3 lb., 1/2 lb., or 2/3 lb. burger patty and deck it out with all the trimmings of your choosing. With juicy burgers and all the fixings, it’s no wonder Fuddruckers is the world’s greatest.

Burger Paradise on North Ocean Blvd. offers their guests the basics: the Paradise cheeseburger, the Double cheeseburger, or the 1/3 lb. Angus cheeseburger. No bells. No whistles, just a great burger that is fresh and cooked to order. What really sets Burger Paradise above the all the rest is that it’s open late until 2am to satisfy your late night burger cravings.
