This is a job for Captain Morgan!
Any suggestions for a good late breakfast or early lunch stop along the way from Richmond, Va. to Myrtle Beach. Nothing fancy.. just tasty and good value.
I’m also looking for some tips on places to eat in Myrtle Beach while I’m there. ( a couple of weeks in November )
BBq is always a plus, Mexican or whatever else. Not really looking for any fine dinning or anything.. again good eats for good value.
Is there particular food items or meals that South Carolina is known for..?
Richmond, Va to Myrtle Beach + Myrtle Beach
