Fire up the grill or head to your favorite restaurant because today is National Cheeseburger Day!
There’s a bunch of 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. A homeless man dining at Sternberger’s restaurant in 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.
Of course some places will be celebrating with freebies. Here’s the list.
