Quick Lunch Spots in Myrtle Beach

  By  Ashlee Carson

Sometimes when you’re visiting the beach all you need is a quick lunch either inside to cool off or to grab something on the go. With so many fantastic restaurants in Myrtle Beach, it’s easy to get lost in the big names and fast-food chains. Instead, try out one of these local spots when you want a great lunch on the go!

1. Andy’s Snak Shak

This small restaurant is located in the heart of Myrtle Beach along Kings Highway serving up daily specials like fried pork chops, chicken bog, squash casserole, chili dogs, mac and cheese, and plenty of other delicious southern options. Andy’s also has plenty of fried seafood platters each week. Check in daily to see what’s cooking!

2. Bay Naturals Healthy Market & Kitchen

If you’re looking for a healthy option for lunch on the go place an order with Bay Naturals Kitchen in Myrtle Beach. They offer plenty of vegetarian, vegan, dairy-free, and gluten-free options as well as fresh salads, sandwiches, daily soups, and even desserts. They also offer fresh smoothies, juices, and healthy shots.

Beer Belly Deli is a small family-owned business that offers specialty sandwiches, wraps, cold craft brews, and fresh sides. My personal favorite sandwich is the Maui Wowie which features cracked pepper turkey, ham, Muenster cheese, red onion, pineapple cilantro spread, and honey mustard served on multigrain bread.

Sandwiches are all served with your choice of chips, homemade pasta salad, potato salad, or coleslaw.

Order your healthy lunch to-go from Kindbelly Café in Myrtle Beach. My favorite menu item is the Good Goddess wrap stuffed with organic super chop mix, house-made hummus, tomatoes, cucumbers, carrots, and avocado served with their homemade Goddess dressing. They also have great salads, grain bowls, acai bowls, and smoothies.

Manny’s has been serving hungry visitors and locals for years with their hot or cold subs like The Godfather made with Cappicola, Genoa Salami, Pepperoni, Provolone, lettuce, tomatoes, onions, oil and vinegar and Italian dressing. Pro tip: Everyone raves about their potato salad!
