Hang Out at Loco Gecko Beach Shak
If you are on the sand with your family and spontaneously want something to eat or drink, don’t worry about changing out of your flip flops. Loco Gecko Beach Shak is right on the strip just a few steps from the ocean, and their motto is come as you are!
Located just a few miles south of the Caravelle Resort at 805 South Ocean Boulevard, Loco Gecko is the epitome of a restaurant that promotes the laid back, relaxed beach lifestyle. They have some unique appetizers … like the Mermaid Purses (fried pork or veggie dumplings served with sweet Chili Thai Sauce), Rajun Cajun Corn Cobs (fried corn on the cob with Loko Gecko’s special Cajun seasoning), and the All Aboard Sampler, which includes both of those plus fried pickles and wings. The tasty Da-Kind wings are the best, and they come in a variety of house flavors like Buffalo-Bleu, Honey Habanera, BBQ, Rajun Cajun Rub, Bourbon Teriyaki, and Garlic Parmesan.
On the sandwich menu, my favorite is probably the Barnie Club with grilled chicken. It comes with Swiss cheese, bacon, and honey mustard. One of the local favorites on their burger menu is the Carolina Pride. It has chili, white American cheese, sautéed onions, and cole slaw on it. There’s another funny named one (a lot of the food at this fun restaurant is!) called the Spicy Redneck that has cajun ramoulade and is topped with crispy fried onion straws. It’s really tasty!
The Rappers D-Lite (yeah, like the song!) is one of Loco Geckos unique wraps. I’d never eaten one with a fried pickle in it before trying this one, which is rolled up in a tomato basil tortilla with chicken breast and lettuce. They also let you build your own pizza here, have a kids menu with things like the PB & J Bird and The Big Cheese (grilled cheese with a choice of American, Swiss, or both), and serve great desserts like the Gecko Brownie with Ice Cream and the Chocolate Junkie (it’s like a chocolate chip pizza…you gotta see it!).
Don’t forget to bring your VMB Card when you go, and you will receive a 10% discount. Have a great time at Loco Gecko, one of Myrtle Beach’s most visited ocean front hangouts.
