The cheeseburger is so familiar and so loved by our taste buds, though it has a vague and enigmatic history. Most food historians date its creation back 80 or 90 years, where a simple slice of cheese turned a conventional hamburger into an American icon. Today there are hundreds, if not thousands, of cheeseburger varieties to choose from — which gives you more incentive to indulge in one on National Cheeseburger Day 2015 on Friday, Sept. 18.
To take the opportunity to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day with family and friends, fire up the grill and cook up your best sizzling patties. But if you don’t feel like cooking, plenty of eateries, fast food chains and burger spots are offering their own discounts and incentives.
