At just one month old, BEACHED, a restaurant located on North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach, is ready to start attracting more locals with its affordable “quick and casual” dining and dining experience, according to owner and operator Dylan Ferguson.
“The food here is absolutely delicious,” said Ferguson, 25. “We add some nice flair to it, as with one of our burgers, Traffic Jam Burger, we have the bacon jam which is on the sweeter side and really adds an extra boost when you eat this burger. We also have our signature and spicy banger sauce which is kind of It’s a tomato based hot sauce and everyone loves the fried shrimp.”
BEACHED is located at 6108 North Kings Highway in Myrtle Beach, adjacent to 62nd Avenue which will take customers directly to the beach and is convenient for golf carts.
“A lot of people came by car with golf carts,” Ferguson said. “This is a very convenient location and with the lifeguard base (close) we get a lot of lifeguards all the time. Every Monday, they come here in their uniform and we give them a 20% off just because we want to give back to the community.”
This local eatery ensures that its bread is “always fresh, delicious, nice and tender,” says Ferguson. “We get it daily through Benjamin’s Bakery. This really makes or breaks a burger, right?”
Ferguson said portion sizes often result in leftovers.
“I’m from New York and I moved here during the pandemic,” Ferguson said. “My grandmother and my grandfather put us two places in a hat and Myrtle Beach was one of my brother’s favorite places and unfortunately he passed away in 2019 and it so happened that we chose Myrtle Beach and it was his way of telling us to go to the beach.”
Ferguson said he worked at The Dirty Armadillo, Crown Reef and Loco Gecko before opening BEACHED.
“My favorite thing to eat here is The Weekender,” he said.
According to BEACHED’s menu, The Weekender contains “Korean BBQ-marinated steak, caramelized onions and melted provolone cheese,” and is served “on a homemade Cuban roll.”
Ferguson said he will likely do the hiring as the school returns.
BEACHED, according to its website, is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. and is available for delivery through some food delivery apps like DoorDash.
