National Cheeseburger Day
September 18, 2014
Come celebrate National Cheeseburger Day with our Effin’ Good Burger!
There are several theories about the origins of the cheeseburger. One story claims that the cheeseburger was created between 1924 and 1926 by a chef named Lionel Sternberger. As the story goes, a homeless man dining at Sternberger’s restaurant in Pasadena, California, suggested the addition of a slice of cheese to his hamburger order. Sternberger complied, eventually added it to his menu, and the rest is history.
Today, cheeseburgers are a staple at restaurants and backyard celebrations all across the country. Hungry yet? See you soon.
