Any Roadfood-type restaurants in Myrtle Beach and southeastern NC?

Next month I'm driving down to Charleston SC for this year's gathering of the Roadfood Presidents Day Glee Club group. I'll be taking a rather unorthodox route from the Chicago area to the Palmetto State, passing through Kansas City, Oklahoma City, Dallas/Ft. Worth, Houston, New Orleans, Birmingham and Atlanta ( I just might find two or three Roadfood restaurants on this route, huh?  ) After the festivities in Charleston are over, I'll be heading north through Myrtle Beach SC and Wilmington NC before turning westward towards home. I've checked the restaurant reviews on this website as well as all of the Stern-authored books that I own, and, other than Big Nell's in Ocean Beach NC ( still in business? ), I can't find any Roadfood-reviewed eateries along this stretch of US 17. Does anyone have any suggestions for food on this oceanfront route? I'm not a seafood fan, nor am I wild about ethnic cuisines, so what I'm looking for would be worthy stops for fried chicken, 'que, burgers, and traditional comfort food like meatloaf, pot roast and such. Any suggestions would be much appreciated.

    nc-
    If it isn't too far out of your way, check out The Todd House in Tabor City, NC, which is right on the state line.  It has been about seven years since I was here, but they had good Southern food in an extremely casual atmosphere.

    So glad to find this thread started.  More tips from others, please!  I too will be in this area (Calabash, NC and vicinity), after the New Orleans festival, and being a pretty unpicky eater, will take any and all Roadfooder recommendations--seafood, ethnic, BBQ, bakeries, etc., etc.!!

    Not sure how close you will be to WILSON NC but there is a place there called PARKER's that would be worth the stop.

    AYCE!

    in myrtle beach, go to 'the food depot' 1101 mr. joe white avenue (previously called tenth ave north).  phone is 843-448-9775. 

    VERY good food.  VERY busy so go EARLY for lunch!
     

    i was there 4 or 5 years ago (not back since, due to not being down there again for my work) and thoroughly enjoyed the meal.  the place is a converted gas station - don't let that fool ya.  excellent food - obviously evident by the fact that you need to go early because they're so busy that they tend to run out of food.

    Thanks to all for the suggestions. At first I thought that The Todd House was going to work out for me, but unfortunately they're closed on Sunday evenings, and that's when I'm spending the night in the Myrtle Beach area. Parker's in Wilson is a possibility for Monday's lunch, and I'll have to check out Hog Heaven as a potential Sunday dinner spot.

    We take several trips each year to Myrtle Beach, either for family vacation or golf trips. My recommendations:

    Hamburger Joe's in North Myrtle Beach for burgers, dogs and killer "Gold Wings"-hot and sweet. Cash only, full bar.

    Fine(r) dining: Frank's and Frank's Out Back in Pawley's Island (is it Roadfood-I don't know but it's good!)

    Pawley's Island Tavern (aka the PIT) most known for seafood but it's definitly a local dive bar with decent pub grub.

    And finally (I could go on), we really like King's Pizza on Hwy 17 in NMB. Pizza is good, meatballs are great and their salad with house dressing is awesome. Although, there are those that disagree with me.

    Oh, and if you are looking for a locals breakfast place, try the Golden Griddle on Main St. in NMB

    Just returned from my first trip to Myrtle Beach.  Before we left I searched this forum for recommendations, and here are some of the recommended places that we visited:

    Hamburger Heaven, Cherry Grove, SC.  Best of the best!  Outstanding handmade hamburgers and hand cut fries.  We have decided to make it a family tradition on subsequent trips to Myrtle Beach.

    Hoskins in North Myrtle Beach, SC.  Really good sausage gravy and nice, airy biscuits, a breakfast worth getting up early for.  The coffee was disappointing, however.  Perhaps because it is iced tea territory, I don't know, but everything else was quite good.

    Golden Griddle, also in north Myrtle Beach, SC.  Yum.  Real homefries done on the griddle, the fluffiest of pancakes, excellent sausages.  Another restaurant that will become a family tradition.

    Painter's Ice Cream, Myrtle Beach, SC.  All flavors made on the premises with fresh ingredients.  My family had banana pudding ice cream and loved it.  I had Heath Bar Crunch, and like it too much to share with the others, who all wanted tastes.  Painter's will DEFINITELY get return visits from us.

     Hedgerow : You have duplicated my eateries !! :)
     
     I love all the places you listed. Hit each everytime I'm in NMB. Will be down there Labor day weekend, and intend to visit them all.
     
     Play27 : IMO Hamburger Joe's was better in the old building. Don't think it's as good as it use to be. However, I do agree with you about King's. Love their pizza !!

    I liked the feel of the old building (Hamburger Joes) better but I think the food tastes the same, plus it's bigger. I wonder if the moved the old grill when the went to their neew digs?
     
    Hedgerow- I to really liked the burger at Hamburger Heaven though parking is a nightmare! But worth it.

    CAROLINA ROADHOUSE RIGHT IN THE CENTER OF MYRTLE BEACH IS GREAT, ESPECIALLY THE KILLER DOG (HOT DOG).

    I was in Myrtle Beach a few weeks ago and discovered the Liberty Tap Room (www.libertytaproom.com)  on 7651 N. Kings Hwy.  I thought the varieties of beers as well as the food were good, and reasonably priced.  You might want to check them out if you have time.
