Hungry for a new barbeque spot in Murrells Inlet? Here's some news that will have you licking your lips. Inlet Bar-b-que is slated to open in a few weeks at the former Prosser’s BBQ joint at the corner of Highway 17 Business and Sunnyside Avenue. The new barbeque restaurant in town is owned by Stacy Mims. Mims is in the process of renovating part of the building and bringing his equipment into the space. He hopes to continue the legacy left behind by the wildly popular Prosser’s BBQ, which served customers at 3750 Highway 17 for nearly 30 years.
When it opens, customers can expect to see familiar menu options, as well as familiar faces from Prosser's. The business model and buffet style of Inlet Bar-b-que is similar to the former eatery that called the Highway 17 restaurant home, as it features home-cooked country food. Plus, Mims, who is no stranger to the restaurant industry, as he also owns Schoolhouse Barbeque in Scranton, has rehired some of Prosser’s employees.
While there's no exact opening date set for Inlet Bar-b-que, customers can expect a mid-April opening. According to Mims, the plan is to start by being open Wednesday through Sunday and eventually opening things up to seven days per week if business is good.
