A new burger spot is opening this week in North Myrtle Beach.
BurgerFi will open its first South Carolina location at 801 Main St. at 11 a.m. Wednesday.
BurgerFi aims to evoke the feel of the hamburger stands of the 1950s and 1960s, and is known for its all natural Angus burger, hand-cut fries and frozen custards. The average burger costs about $6 or $7. BurgerFi also has a veggie burger, as well as burger toppings that include premium options such as grilled mushrooms and a fried egg.
The franchisee picked North Myrtle Beach as the spot for its first location in South Carolina because of the millions of tourists who visit each year, including those playing at the nearby North Myrtle Beach Park & Sports Complex, which opened earlier this year, officials have said.
BurgerFi’s hours will be 11 a.m. to 11 p.m. Sunday through Thursday and 11 a.m. to midnight Friday and Saturday.
In addition to BurgerFi, the Grand Strand has attracted several burger chains in recent years, including Highway 55 Burgers (formerly known as Andy’s) and Cook-Out, which recently opened its second area location on Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach.
