3. A 15 Piece Basket of Fried Shrimp for under $6.00

Seafood, and shrimp in particular, is thankfully plentiful in Pawleys Island. After all, Murrells Inlet, just north of here, is the Seafood Capital of South Carolina. 

China Chef, in Murrells Inlet, located next to Food Lion (a great go-to late night grocery option) fills a takeout container to the brim with a no-nonsense, cornmeal fried shrimp.

They were able to successfully adapt and keep their business open in 2020, by installing a takeout window system, and by taking phone/mobile orders along with walkups.
