THE LOCALE | text here
THE LOWDOWN | Burgers meet rock ‘n’ roll at Rock Burger, the latest incarnation of an old legendary haunt and burger joint in Myrtle Beach. That’s where we went for happy hour this week.
You’ll find Rock Burger on North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach where Burger Bar used to be located - and also where the mid-2000s version of Rock Burger was. The Blues Brothers greet you outside the front door (Blues Brothers statues, that is) and you’ll find the King of Rock ’n’ Roll (an Elvis statue) in the back of the establishment.
The rock ’n’ roll theme carries throughout the locale. The decor showcases several guitars signed by band members. Numerous posters cover the walls featuring music greats such as Bob Marley, Led Zeppelin, Lynyrd Skynyrd, Pink Floyd and The Rolling Stones.
The bar, plastered with old 45 records, seats ten red barstools. The rest of the establishment has red booths and low-top tables. There’s also an outdoor patio with seating.
Music videos play on the flat panel TVs that line the walls, and sports show on the TVs that hang above the bar. You can play bar games such as darts or Guitar Hero.
The menu includes burgers, sandwiches, Nathan’s hot dogs, salads and milkshakes, and there’s a build-your-own burger and build-your-own dog menu. Chicken and waffles are also on the menu.
Happy hour runs from 4 to 8 p.m. daily. Drink deals include $2 draft beers and half-price well drinks (making them $2.) You can also snag appetizers for half-price, such as wings, fried zucchini, sliders, nachos and jalapeño poppers.
TIPS | There’s a burger challenge. If you eat a 3-pound Angus burger with all the fixings in 35 minutes or less you get your meal free plus a T-shirt and your name on a leader board.
