Remember how mom's home cooking made everything all right? Nothing else seemed to matter when there was something good cooking on the stove. That's the magical power of good home-cooking, but you don't have to go home to get it.
Myrtle Beach and the surrounding Grand Strand area are lined with restaurants serving some of the same sweet meals your momma made. Country-fried steak with mashed potatoes and gravy, creamy mac and cheese and crispy fried okra are just a few of the tasty morsels on the menu at some of the Strand's coziest comfort-food eateries.
Hungry enough to eat a horse but prefer some more traditional cuisine? Load up at one of the many country buffets that put out a massive spread like a big family meal. Mammy's Kitchen, Magnolia's at 26th and Prosser's BBQ are among the many all-you-can-eat buffets in the area, but three of the few that offer authentic home cooking.
For slightly smaller portions but an equal amount of love in each dish, check out Big Mike's for some soulful soul food or The Shack for some real country cooking. From old-school cafes like Hoskins to the more polished themed restaurants like the House of Blues, the Strand has you covered when it comes to home cooking. Grab a fork and see for yourself.
