Cheeseburger day is celebrated annually on September 18th. This celebration of one of the most iconic and delicious foods of the USA has been taking place every year since the early part of the Roaring 20s era.
So just when was the Cheeseburger created? Well, three different states claim to be the birthplace of the cheeseburger. California says Lionel Sternberger was working in his father’s Pasadena sandwich shop in 1928 when he experimented with dropping a slice of American cheese on a beef patty —and the cheeseburger was born
Cheeseburger day is marked in a number of different ways. One of the most common ways it’s celebrated is by major and local fast-food chains offering free cheeseburgers to customers alongside other special offers. Usually, the free offers have some sort of limit to prevent people from taking advantage of the generosity. This may be limiting the free cheeseburgers to one per customer, to only the first ten thousand visitors to the fast food store, or through making them available only for a one or two hour period on the day.
To mark the day, many burger makers will use their creativity and culinary skills to make new variations on the traditional cheeseburger. This usually involves using premium types of cheese, other meats, and a variety of unusual garnishes.
