Finally a celebration I can participate in!  I love Cheeseburgers!

Today is National Cheeseburger day!  Hey, why not celebrate!  I realized, I have no idea how the cheeseburger came to be!

According to Punchbowl, there are several 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. As the story goes, a homeless man dining at Sternberger's restaurant in Pasadena, 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.

Now, I love cheeseburgers and I am always trying to expand my cheeseburger experience.  Krispy Kreme has a donut cheeseburger - not sure I can do that!

What is your favorite cheeseburger in the area?  Where can we all try it?
