Affordable Chow in Myrtle Beach

Attending a conference in MB next week and would love a good place for affordable good eats. It doesn't HAVE to be seafood...I live on the Outer Banks, but a regional place would be wonderful!
I was there briefly a couple of weeks ago. I spied a little tacqueria (forgot the name) in a strip mall just about mile north of and on the other side of the road of Barefoot Landing. I didn't eat there but just from appearance it looked like one of the many really good little joints here in Durham. Since you live on the OBX and La Fogata is about the only Mexican place you have there I'd try to get as much good Mexican food as I could whenever I left the area.
Depends how affordable you want. Liberty Steakhouse and Brewery at Broadway at the Beach has great happy hour specials on appetizers and microbrew beer. They have chese fries, nachos, buffalo shrimp, huge warm pretzels, cajun crawfish (yum), chicken fingers, etc all pretty cheap at happy hour. And their beer is my favorite! Yamato's at Broadway has good happy hour on sushi. I also love Sea Captain's House for seafood and Bodo's (near the old Pavillion area) for German and Villa Romano for Italian but those are all a little pricier that my happy hour haunts.
Where in the Myrtle Beach area will you be? I can advise lots more if I knew...On North Ocean Blvd. in the Long Bay Resort is a restaurant called Martins that is tucked away, very reasonable and good..owned by a European chef...very local.
Also, try the Flamingo Grill on North Kings Highway for upscale, but casual food..from a burger to a steak or seafood.
Carrabas..though a chain...is always good..on North Kings Highway.
and The Sea Captains House..on North Ocean Blvd...for good view and great seafood.
I highly recommend Prosser's BBQ for dinner. Buffet is outstanding. They were originally known for their BBQ but their lunch buffet has local (in season) fried oysters, local shrimp, grouper, mac&cheese, fried pork chops, chicken fried steak, creamed potatoes, collards, cornbread, etc. Some of the best soul food/low country you'll ever eat along with oustanding BBQ.
Checked out Prosser's this weekend. Went Sat. for lunch and then back again today (Mon.). The chicken and dumplings (flat) were what got me back so soon. The field peas w/snaps were really good too, as were the collards, fried chicken, yellow squash, pole beans, hushpuppies, large limas, fried flounder, and those were just the things I tried. there were lots of other items I couldn't get around to trying. At $7.50 per, it's a steal. Truly the best buffet I've come across this millennium, although my buffet eating hasn't been what it used to be. Highly recommended if you want to eat like the country folk.
