There's a fact that 'true Myrtle Beach locals' like to complain about, this town is overrun with Ohio natives! 

It's never more evident than on college football Saturdays when the Buckeye horde invade locals sports bars wearing scarlet and gray, spelling out OH-IO in chant and of course yelling "GO BUCKS!" during every good play on the field. But, one thing true Myrtle Beach locals need to be thankful for is the food and restaurants that have come out of Ohio.

Fast food staples like Wendy's and Arby's are both founded and based out of the Buckeye State as well as privately owned, national pizza chain Donato's Pizza. Recently added to this list - three guys from Steubenville, Ohio who have brought a taste of the Ohio Valley to Myrtle Beach at Gem City Pizza.

Myrtle Beach Restaurant News has a mouth watering write-up about these Ohio boys an their pizza,

"Every pizza shop up there has square pizza," A.J. Hunt said on March 20 as he prepared for the lunch rush. "When I say square pizza here people think I'm talking about Sicilian, but this is different.

"No offense to Sicilian pizza, but Ohio pizza is magnificently different, and Hunt, with partners Scott Roman and Eric Archey are doing an excellent job making pizzas (except they call them trays, not pizzas) and other specialties.
