What is it about BBQ restaurants and burgers? At a long running, family owned restaurant with Bar-B-Q on the sign, of course you expect great 'Cue and some fantastic southern side dishes to go along with it.  What you don't always expect is, but maybe you should, is a great burger. 


Unlike ordering sushi at a fast food establishment (always a bad idea), ordering a burger at a BBQ joint is not only acceptable, but many times, recommended.  That's certainly the case at Billy Bob's Bar-B-Q in Carrollton, GA.  To be clear, this is not in any way a criticism of their BBQ, but rather a compliment to their burger.

And speaking of compliments, #BurgersWithBuck is, once again, humbled by receiving the ultimate honor for a burger lover.  It's called the #CowboyBuckBurger, but it could also be called a delicious mess.  It's starts with a Black Angus patty, topped with cheese, thick sliced bacon, and grilled onions.  Next comes the messy part complete with spicy BBQ chipotle sauce, hickory sauce, and chili.  On the other side of the bun is lettuce and tomato, and when you put it all together it's enough to make you yell, "yippee ki-yay" and "pass me some more napkins".


This is the third burger that has been named in honor of #BWB and has become a permanent addition to the menu of a local restaurant.  For what it's worth, all three have been BBQ restaurants.  If, or should I say when you try a Cowboy Buck Burger...let me know what you think.


Billy Bob's Bar-B-Q is also a great place to go on Friday nights in the fall before the Carrollton Trojans football team plays a home game at Grisham Stadium at Historic Trojan Field which is located behind the Billy Bob's.

And, as always, if you have a favorite burger that you would like to see featured on, tell me about it on or, and don't forget to use the hashtag #BurgersWithBuck and/or #BWB.


Athens Couple Rolls the Dice on Board Game Cafe: It's a place where the only thing hotter than the coffee is the competition -- and the only things colder than the beer are the stares across the table.


The Rook & Pawn Board Game Cafe in Athens is the unique idea of Tim and Carrie Kelly, who had the idea of opening a place where people could eat, drink, and play a round of their favorite board game.  After raising money and generated buzz for the idea through a Kickstarter campaign, the couple opened the cafe in June of 2015, converting an old Athens recording studio into a Sherlock Holmes-inspired coffee shop filled with 700 board games. Those games include everything from the classics ("Clue" and "Monopoly"), new favorites ("The Settlers of Catan"), and novelties (a round of "Saved By The Bell," anyway?).  Along with coffee, The Rook & Pawn serves eight beers on draught and a menu of sandwiches and baked goods.

Good Day Atlanta's Paul Milliken -- possibly the biggest "Clue" fanatic in the world -- spent the morning at The Rook & Pawn, getting an inside look at this popular Athens hangout.
