5 Best Food Trucks to Grab a Bite in Myrtle Beach

Myrtle Beach, South Carolina, offers much more than just postcard perfect beaches and world class golf courses (though we’d find who would complain!). It’s also a haven for foodies, particularly those who prefer street food to fine dining.

Some of the area’s best eats come in a much simpler form: the mighty food truck. The burgeoning food truck scene in MB offers a variety of cuisines, flavors, and gastronomic styles. In this guide, we’ve hand-picked some of our favorites to make your decision that much easier.

We've highlighted the best food trucks that have captured our hearts (and stomachs).

  • Where’s the Truck?: Various Locations

  • Price Point: $$

  • What to Order: Philly Cheesesteak

Make sure you work up an appetite before visiting Kurbside Katering - or have a friend willing to share! The portions are huge, the staff friendly, and the food delicious. For some stick-to-your-ribs, hearty goodness, Kurbside Katering is a must-visit.

We are obsessed with the Philly Cheesesteak, a sandwich fit for a king. Heaps of shaved steak, melted white American cheese and grilled onions on a toasted Amoroso roll. They also make a tasty shrimp version with sweet peppers and onions. You can’t go wrong.


The Fish Shak

  • Where’s the Truck? Old Hwy 17 Business in Historic Murrells Inlet

  • Price Point: $$$

  • What to Order: Triple Play Combo

To take advantage of the bounty of fresh seafood available on the shores of Myrtle Beach, head over to The Fish Shak. This food truck is the real deal, serving up baskets of fresh fish such as flounder, grouper, shrimp, and mahi mahi in addition to fish sandwiches and tacos.

For a little taste of everything, try the Triple Play Combo. Fried shrimp, grouper, and flounder served with hand-cut fries, house made dill ranch, tartar sauce, cocktail sauce, and remoulade. The grouper sliders on Hawaiian rolls are also worth a try!

It’s worth noting that there are no land-dwelling or vegetarian options, so be sure everyone in your group is in the mood for seafood!


Charleston Flats

  • Where’s the Truck? Myrtle Beach, SC; check the website for the current location.

  • Price Point: $$

  • What to Order: The Charleston

Charleston Flats is a gourmet flatbread food truck showcasing high quality ingredients like San Marzano tomatoes and creative flavor combinations. In all honesty, choosing just one flatbread to order is a difficult decision.

Try their signature flatbread, The Charleston, featuring pulled pork, roasted pineapple, cheddar, pickled jalapenos, and BBQ sauce. Or opt for a sweet and savory combo with The Apricot Antebellum, which combines apricot preserves with bacon, brie, and thyme.

If you’re not feeling too adventurous, don’t worry - they have a selection of classic flatbreads as well, ranging from basic mozzarella and tomato to cheesy pepperoni.


The Gnosh Pit

  • What to Order: Buffalo Shrimp Mac and Cheese

Chef and owner Meredith describes The Gnosh Pit as “a unique eats truck” with a menu that changes according to seasonality and availability. A popular option among locals and tourists alike, this food truck favorite offers a little bit of everything. You can find things like po boys, pita sandwiches, mac and cheese variations, endless French fry options, and more.

For a food truck experience that is centered on customer satisfaction and exemplary service, head to The Gnosh Pit. It’s also our top pick for guests with dietary restrictions, as they are able to accommodate vegetarian and vegans, gluten-free, and healthy eaters alike.

Benito’s Rolling Oven combines simple ingredients to create delicious, wood-fired pizzas. This mobile pizzeria is famous in the area for being one of Myrtle Beach’s best food trucks.

Benito’s has been serving up classics, such as a hand-tossed Margherita pizza as well as more innovative creations, like their signature Jerk Pizza, for years. The Jerk Pizza is made with pizza sauce, ham, bacon, pineapple, banana peppers, jerk seasoning, and loads of gooey mozzarella. Yum!
