Good Day Atlanta Viewer Information Story: May 29, 2015

Burgers With Buck: The origin of its name dates back to before 44 BC, but the origin of the Caesar Burger at The Brickery Grill and Bar in Sandy Springs dates back to 1968, when Bruce and Sally Alterman were in college at the University of Oklahoma. And when they decided to open their restaurant in 1992, they knew they had to create their own version of the burger they enjoyed so many times in their college days in Norman, OK.

It was a great idea, you might even say a Boomer for these two Sooners. Despite a wide and varied menu that includes seafood, steak, and ribs, The Caesar Burger is considered one of the specialties of the house. And when it caught the attention of the wide and varied staff of Burgers With Buck, we headed to Sandy Springs to check it out for ourselves.

It was so good that not even an uninvited member of the Good Day Atlanta staff (who will remain nameless, Paul Milliken) who just showed up to crash the #BWB party, could ruin the experience.

Fundraiser Brings Together Classic Cars And Barbeque: Classic cars and barbeque might not sound as practical as bricks or stone, but those two elements are the building blocks for one construction company's successful annual fundraiser.

The event bring together dozens of classic, muscle, and exotic cars -- as well as barbeque, live music, and a raffle.
