High On The Hog: Prosser’s B-B-Q

When we vacationed in the Myrtle Beach area, we always ate "high on the hog". We would save all year so we could eat anywhere we wanted and order whatever our heart desired, guilt free. Vacation meant freedom to be extravagant. One of the first lessons you learn when you move to a tourist town, is that you can not live as if you are on vacation. Well, you can but you would go broke before long. So you can imagine my excitement when I found out that one of the most talked about restaurants in Murrell's Inlet is inexpensive and delicious.

Prosser's Bar-B-Que sits on the corner of Hwy. 707 and Hwy. 17 Business in Murrell's Inlet. From the outside, it looks unassuming and the inside looks like a place you would expect to see Guy Fieri roll up in his convertible and shoot an episode of Diners, Drive-ins, and Dives. The restaurant is very clean and neat, but it is a dive none the less. Alas, I was not here for the décor, I was here for the twenty four foot all you can eat buffet. If I had to pick only one reason to love Prosser's, it would have to be the fried chicken. Delicate, yet crisp, it taste as if your grandmother is in the back frying it just for you. Of course I can't neglect the deep fried pork chops that are so tender you can cut them with a fork. The buffet also has an array of fried seafood, including oysters, shrimp, deviled crab, clams, and flounder. There is also barbeque pork and chicken with Carolina vinegar sauce readily available. Oh my, did I forget to mention the chicken and dumplings? They are heavenly.

The bar is also packed with southern home-style sides. My favorites include sweet potato casserole with just the right amount of sweetness, butter beans, collard greens, or maybe the macaroni and cheese. As you can see there is plenty of great food to choose to from. There is also a salad bar with homemade croutons and salad dressings. My son's favorite is the biscuits; they are flatter than those that I make, but very tasty. I can't resist the lighter than air hush puppies while the husband can't stay away from the homemade pies and cakes. I adore the hummingbird cake. To wash this entire feast down, you must have some of the best sweet tea the beach has to offer.
Although Prosser's is considered a local's favorite on the Grand Strand, with the amount of food at such affordable prices it can definitely help you stretch your vacation dollars, and still eat "high on the hog"!
Prices: Lunch $7.50, Dinner $12.95, and children are priced according to their age.

Prosser's is open seven days a week for breakfast and lunch, and open for breakfast lunch and dinner Thursday through Saturday
