The 5 Best Post-Round Burger Joints in Myrtle Beach Golf

Story by Ian Guerin

You've already fulfilled your baser instincts with a day of competition on the course against your fellow man.

Now, you want to take that next carnal step - rewarding yourself with a belly full of red meat.

Via a post-round burger, you're adding a protein boost that will help you make a quick turnaround. Don't argue; this is science (OK, maybe we can't really back that up).

With that in mind, we present five of your best options for taking care of beef business. You won't go wrong with any of these, and more than likely you'll find time to stop in again.

Burky’s Grill, Myrtle Beach

The low-key venue on North Kings Highway may not look like much, but that just means these burgers sneak up on first-timers. Not all that long ago, locals wondered if this option was going to disappear for good. The owner had another establishment, but gave it up in lieu of retirement. He quickly changed course, re-opened under the new moniker and gave residents, beach-goers and golfers reason to celebrate.

Pro Tip: These are diner burgers, meaning they are flattened somewhat, so for the average dude, a double is a good idea. For the powerfully sized man, make it a triple.

Hamburger Joe’s, Surfside Beach

This joint wasn’t messing around when it put the main attraction right into the name. Hamburger Joe’s is a throwback or sorts, the smell of the wood walls covered up by years of donated dollar bills still permeating the air as much as the grill located just some behind bar-style seating. There are a boatload of other menu choices, including a well-known bologna sandwich, but the burger is priority No. 1.

Pro Tip: Fries are an easy complement to the burger, but Joe’s onion rings come with the perfect ratio of grease, breading and onion.

Crafty Rooster Bar & Grill, Conway

Located right in the county seat’s downtown, Crafty has been, well, crafted in the image of nearby Coastal Carolina University and its Chanticleer mascot. By day, it’s a hot-button lunch spot attracting judges and lawyers from the nearby courthouse; at night, it transforms, with patrons taking advantage of the massive craft beer selection. Regardless of the clock, the burgers are lush and customizable to your soon-to-be-slowing heartbeat’s desire.

Pro Tip: Should you be in the area on a Wednesday, Crafty runs a $5 burger special. Offer to pick up your playing partner’s lunch, steer him toward the burger and act like a baller.

Art Burger Sushi Bar, Myrtle Beach

Just because nobody will describe your golf game as fancy doesn’t mean your burger can’t be.

At Art, the menu is adorned with names like “Rembrandt,” “Picasso” and “Rockwell,” a bevy of beef options that suit various palates with a style no one else can touch. From duck fat to fried pickles, chorizo to blue cheese, Art Bar will test what you thought you knew about your burger limits.

Pro Tip: Try the “Munch”, a pork belly-and-egg-topped behemoth. With this burger, you can go big AND go home - to nap.

Nearby Courses: World Tour Golf Links, River Oaks Golf Plantation

River City Café, Murrells Inlet

While River City lovers have several options, we prefer the one just down the street from the Murrells Inlet Marshwalk and the lively options in and around it. But regardless of which one you choose, 22 burgers (of the beef variety) line the menu. There’s the old standby house cheeseburger, as well as others topped with everything from peanut butter to shrimp to Doritos.

Pro Tip: Unless you are looking to take half your burger (or more) home with you, slow your roll with those refillable peanut buckets. But throw a few shells on the floor, you know, just because.
