This year, National Cheeseburger Day will be celebrated on September 18, 2019. While no one really knows about the origin of this mouthwatering holiday, the birth of the Cheeseburger itself has been credited to Lionel Sternberger. While working as a fry cook as a teenager at his father’s restaurant, “The Rite Spot,” Sternberger “experimentally dropped a slab of American cheese on a sizzling hamburger.”
Thus this delectable, juicy creation was born and fast food restaurants were never the same. To celebrate this day, restaurants are offering free or discounted cheeseburgers and other offers all day long. All of these locations should be offering deals on this day, but make sure to call in first to see if the offer is eligible at your location!
