REAL Pizza in Myrtle Beach?

Hello all,

Glad to find this board. First post here.

We will be in Myrtle Beach, SC next week and if possible, I'd like some recommendations for REAL pizza.

Now before anyone says it, let's just skip over Ultimate California Pizza....

OK, that out of the way, what I'm talking about is genuine NY/NJ style pizza. Is something like that even possible to find in Myrtle Beach?

Please let me know!

Thanks in advance! :-)

      Looks to be good. I'll give it a shot!

        If you do get by please come back and post a little bit about it.

          Will do. We'll have our laptop, so I won't have to wait until I get home.

    2. Luigi's Pizza is by far the best pizza I have ever had. I live in Columbia and when I go to Myrtle Beach I have to stop by. 501 61st Ave N. There is a little place attached to the main building that you go to order just pizza. The sauce is the best. You can tell its made with real tomatoes and wine. Last time I was there I heard they are closing. So get it while you can.

      1. I am from NY and I think I know what you're looking for and the closest I have found in the area to "NY pizza" is Benito's, Highway 17 in North Myrtle Beach. Pastas are decent too and portions are generous. Try it.

            I'd heard of Benito's before. As we will be staying in the Arcadian Shores area, that ought to be right up the road from us. I should check that out.

          2. Avoid Georgio's famous pizza. Man, that was horrible. Flavorless crust and sauce from a can. Mushrooms from a can. The Greek salad used Italian dressing. At least it was cheap.
