On our way out of town we hit up the Omega Pancake & Omelet House. There wasn’t anything amazing about the food but it was cheap and hit the spot. The pancakes were fluffy… the bacon was thin but tasty… the eggs were cooked to perfection and the hash browns were edible. Nothing was memorable but everything was good!
I finally got around to trying Dick’s Last Resort. I have a bit of a twisted sense of humor so this restaurant is right up myDick’s Last Resort alley. I cant imagine anybody goes to Dicks for the amazing food… if they do they would be disappointed.
We had a great time with our waitress and thought the food was good but just about average. We got a burger with fries and an order of wings. The wings only came in two flavors and I got the buffalo which taste just like any other buffalo flavored wing. The burger was just another bacon cheese burger… but the fries turned out to be the best thing at the table. Crispy and dipped in ranch dressing… we could have eaten just a plate of fries and would have had a blast.
Dicks isn’t the place to go to get memorable food, but it is definitely the place to be if you want a memorable trip. The waiters will yell at you… throw things at you… and make you smile :)
Fiesta Mexicana is one of the highest rated Mexican restaurants in Myrtle Beach. Unfortunately… we found it to just be average. If there was an in-between button for rating restaurants I would have given it to Fiesta Mexicana but there’s not so I ended up giving it a “Like it” vote.
The carne asada was too thick and lacked any flavor. The chicken was dry and if there wasn’t chorizo over top would have been left untouched. The food for the most part wasn’t horrible nor was the service, its just that non of it was memorable or can be recommended.
Not at all like your average hibachi restaurant, Jimmyz Original Hibachi House scraps the show and delivers big on flavor. I’m a huge fan of teriyaki chicken and Jimmyz made it great, especially after I drowned it all in shrimp sauce and extra teriyaki :) A plate of food for only $6 was plenty big enough to have leftovers… which were equally as delicious for breakfast the next morning.

After a week long vacation in Myrtle Beach we headed to Abuelo’s Mexican Food Embassy to celebrate our last night on vacation. We went on a Saturday night and despite having six people in our group we didn’t have to wait at all. Our waitress was super awesome and really made the whole night just right. To start out the night we decided to celebrate big so we got Abuelo’s dip sampler. It came with Queso Diablo – a rich, spicy combination of traditional Mexican cheese and chili, Chile con Queso and an Avocado Cream that was to die for!
I couldn’t decide what to get so I opted for three enchiladas (shredded beef, carnitas, chicken) so I could sample a variety of their meats and for the sides I went with the cilantro lime rice and papas con chili. The enchiladas were all prepared beautifully and taste great. The best of the three was easily the shredded beef… which isn’t easy for me to admit because I LOVE CARNITAS! The Papas con Chili is considered Abuelo’s signature side dish and it is by far the best! It combines red potatoes, four cheeses, red and green peppers, sour cream, garlic and jalapeño. I could have eaten a whole plate and left with a smile on my face :) The Cilantro Lime Rice is described on the menu as “slightly tangy, light rice with a touch of cilantro” I think they forgot to add just a touch of cilantro because I didn’t like it at all. The flavor was way too over-powering and I would suggest they use the cilantro lime rice recipe from Chipotle Mexican Grill.
Our table also got the Nogales which are large flour tortilla enchiladas, one with shredded beef and ranchera sauce, and one with chicken and sour cream sauce both topped with lettuce and tomatoes. They were just as good as my enchiladas, which is to be expected since they were practically the same thing but with flour tortillas. A couple people in our group went with the rib-eye steak & enchiladas combo plate and they definitely scored. The plate was a 10 oz. hand-cut ribeye steak, wood grilled and then served with two enchiladas and a side. The steak was quite literally one of the best I had ever eaten and left me with plate envy. .
If you’re ever in Myrtle Beach and have a craving for the best Mexican food in the area…. head over to Abuelos and eat a plate of papas con chili with a side of avocado cream, you’ll be in heaven in no time!
After a couple days at the beach we have finally found something good to eat. Hidden in the crowd of common place tourist trap restaurants, you’ll find Sam’s Corner . Cash only, nothing over the top and everything we had was great.
We got a mix of corn dogs, foot long hot dogs and onion rings. The corn dogs were great… the onion rings were thick battered and fried to perfection… the hot dogs were as just right.
If you want to escape the typical tourist restaurants and eat something cheap and delicious, go to Sam’s Corner :)
Cant say anything amazing about Kohr Family Ice Cream… too thick, too expensive.. we wish we had gotten froyo instead.
