(ABC4) – Happy National Cheeseburger Day!
It’s no secret America loves its cheeseburgers as everyone has an opinion on which burger reigns supreme.
The history of the cheeseburger can be traced back to 1924 as the brainchild of a 16-year-old named Lionel Sternberger. Sternberger was the son of a sandwich shop owner who got the crazy idea one day of slapping a piece of sliced cheese on a naked hamburger.
Years later, a Kentucky restaurant dubbed the creation a “cheeseburger,” and the name was officially trademarked by the owner of Humpty Dumpty Drive-In in 1935.
So on this fine day of appreciating an American icon, what better way to celebrate than snagging this fine creation on the cheap?
