Pulled pork sandwich with cole slaw on it with ribs, corn and beans

While Barbeque (as a whole) is an American tradition, The Palmetto State is known for it’s very own, unique take on this low and slow method of cooking. According to Wikipedia, South Carolina has three regional styles. In western parts of the state (along the Savannah River) a peppery, tomato-based sauce is used. The middle of the state (the Midlands) is known for their Carolina Gold sauce, made from a mixture of yellow mustard, vinegar, and brown sugar. Of course pork is always the meat of choice wherever you go. But in the coastal (Pee Dee) region, we use the whole hog! We also use smoke from hardwood trees like oak or hickory, and a spicy vinegar and pepper based sauce. Want to know more? Come visit us in the Pee Dee and let your tastes buds tell y’all about it! While there are a ton of great places to grab a rack of ribs or a plate of pulled pork during your stay, here are some of the best local BBQ restaurants in the Myrtle Beach area:

Little Pigs BBQ

At Little Pigs BBQ, the meat is slow-cooked to perfection, and the sauce choices are virtually endless. Start with ribs, pulled pork, or pulled chicken, and add on your sides. There are plenty to choose from, but local favorites include macaroni and cheese, sweet potato casserole, and homemade banana pudding. And don’t forget a tall, cold glass of sweet tea to go along with your meal! Little Pigs is locally owned and family-friendly. Locations include Surfside Beach on Dick Pond Road, and on Frontage Road in Myrtle Beach, just blocks from the ocean.

Smokin’ Hot Grill and BBQ

Smokin’ Hot Grill and BBQ is relaxed waterfront dining with southern flair. Located at Barefoot Landing, their authentic South Carolina barbeque is prepared with a signature dry rub and slow smoked for hours. Enjoy tender pulled pork, juicy chicken, mouth-watering ribs, and a slew of other options. Everything is served dry so you can sample sauces right at your table. All their BBQ sauces are made in-house or locally! Or start your meal with a bowl of their award-winning Brunswick stew and some Moonshine. They have the largest selection of Moonshine in the state, with over 50 varieties distilled in the Carolinas.

Bar-B-Que House

Bar-B-Que House slow smokes their pork over hickory logs, and offers a variety of regional, Carolina style sauces. They have chicken, ribs, pulled pork, and some of the best hushpuppies, fried okra, collards, and corn nuggets around. They also have a drive-thru, and a kids’ menu for guests 12 and under. Bar-B-Que House is what we call a local chain – there are three locations along the Grand Strand, including one in North Myrtle Beach.

Pop Pop’s Pit BBQ

This little BBQ joint opened not that long ago, and has fast established itself as one of the best in the area. Ranked the #2 BBQ Restaurant and 12th out of 800 restaurants in Myrtle Beach, Pops Pop’s Pit BBQ is family owned and operated. They also just won the title of “Best Chicken Bog in the World” (If you don’t know what chicken bog is, you need to try this regional specialty)! Pop Pop’s takes pride in using only the freshest cuts of meat, in recipes they painstakingly cook from scratch, and everything is made to order. Pulled pork, wings, and fried chicken are on the menu, along with an amazing sliced brisket sandwich. Or try a basket of fresh-fried pork skins ­ – you won’t be disappointed! Pop Pops is located on Highway 707 in Myrtle Beach and is worth the trip.
