8 Best Burger Joints in Myrtle Beach

By Julia Diem

Nothing tops off a Myrtle Beach, South Carolina vacation like that all-American classic, the burger. While Myrtle Beach has a wide variety of delicious restaurants to satisfy all palates, sometimes you just want a big, juicy burger.

The Grand Strand is home to all of the classic hamburger chains you and your family already know and love like Five Guys, CookOut, and Red Robin but we also have plenty of places beyond fast food to sit down and enjoy a meal together.

Check out these restaurants near your Myrtle Beach resort that go a bit beyond the tired old burger and fries for a meal you can really wrap your hands around.



  • Address: 1320 Celebrity Cir Unit 195, Myrtle Beach, SC
  • Price Point: $$

Located at Broadway at the Beach, Wahlburgers is a family favorite. Although Wahlburgers has locations throughout the US, it feels more like a boutique restaurant than anything else. Plus, the location means you’ll easily be able to stretch your legs after your meal and enjoy the shopping and entertainment options in the area.

Not only can you order from an extensive hamburger and cheeseburger menu, they also have salads, chicken sandwiches, BBQ pork, and plenty of appetizers and sides for everyone in your family to find something they’re in the mood for. We just recommend you don’t walk away without trying their sweet potato tots!

Blueberry’s Grill is best known in the Myrtle Beach area as one of the best breakfast and brunch spots in town but most don’t realize they also have an extensive lunch menu that includes a variety of really great burgers.

Promising to use the freshest ingredients, locally sourced when possible, Blueberry’s Grill is a local favorite burger joint. With ample space to dine indoors or out, let one order breakfast, the other order brunch, and you dig into a delicious burger all at the same restaurant.

Another Broadway at the Beach favorite is Wet Willie’s. Wet Willie’s is the place to go if you not only want a good burger but you want a rainbow assortment of frozen cocktails to accompany it.

Unlike Blueberry’s Grill or Wahlburgers that have a wide variety of burger options, Wet Willie’s goes hard on the classics. Here, you want to go for a regular hamburger, cheeseburger, or a bacon cheeseburger for a little crunch.
