CHEROKEE COUNTY, Ga. - When it comes to recommending great burger spots, #BurgersWIthBuck has got to hand it to our colleague Katie Beasley. So far, she is two-for-two when it comes to suggesting a great burger in the metro area.
Kudos to her for being the first to turn us on to Bocado, which we featured way back in 2016, some 114 burgers ago, and now she has done it again with Old Country Place in Hickory Flat. Full disclosure, she grew up in the area and is still pretty plugged in when it comes to all things Cherokee County.
So, after deciding to not order the BBQ at OCP, the next toughest thing is probably choosing which burger you’d like to try. There are six on the menu (including a Build Your Own option), and with names like The Carolina Burger, The Spicoli Burger, and The Caprese Burger it seems it is hard to go wrong.
However, if you’re the type of burger lover who can’t imagine going to a BBQ restaurant and not ordering pork , brisket, or chicken, the Carolina Burger may be just the thing for you. It’s what #BurgersWithBuck had.
It starts with grass fed, locally sourced Black Angus beef, and it’s topped with their locally sourced, slow cooked pulled pork. It’s piled high with cheddar cheese, North Carolina chopped slaw, and Palmetto Gold BBQ sauce. It’s where BBQ and BWB collide and trust me that is a very good place to be.
One more thing, great news if you are already a fan of OCP. They are planning to expand the concept in the area in the near future. Stay tuned for details.
