Cheeseburgers are almost as American as the 4th of July, so it’s no surprise that there’s a National Cheeseburger Day! The auspicious holiday falls on September 18, with the day first being acknowledged ten years ago. 

The cheeseburger has come a long way from its experimental origins in Pasadena, California. Back in 1924, 16-year-old Lionel Sternberger was working at his father’s sandwich shop called The Rite Spot. It was there that he decided to try putting a slice of American cheese on a sizzling hamburger. The rest, as they say, is history!

These days, cheeseburgers have a variety of toppings and cheeses, and even come in double and triple versions! If all this talk has gotten your palate salivating, you’ll be pleased to know that well-known fast food chains are celebrating National Cheeseburger Day this year by offering specials.
