Did you have any clue there are some monster hot dogs to be had on the Grand Strand?
Nothing about Myrtle Beach should amaze you anymore. We went in search of the top dogs in town and found delicious results. Turns out this is a hot-dog kind of town after all.
But first, did you know this about eating hot dogs?
Hot dog etiquette 101: How to eat a ‘dog
Seems simple, right? But there’s a nuance to it. Observe.
- Top your dog in the right order
Like this: Wet condiments first, chunky ones next (such as onion, and relish.) Finish it with optional cheese, then spices. Celery salt and pepper are great.
- Don’t slice the dog
We asked the chefs, who told us not to. Not while you’re cooking and not when you’re topping it. Doing so lets all the juices out!
- Skip the ketchup
It stifles the hot dog’s taste. Ketchup includes sugar, which negates its acidic tomatoes and anything else.

If you’re in the hot-dog lover’s club, show your loyalty (and class) by turning up at these places.

It’s been a local, family-owned favorite since 1937. Peaches Corner nails it for hamburgers, hot dogs, and ice cream. This crew loves to work together, and it shows in their service and delicious offerings. The original owner was Peace Justice, known as “Momma Peach,” which is where the place gets its name.
Their Footlong is a Grand Strand landmark, but the Corndogs are pretty incredible, too. They have honey in the batter. Yum.
