(PRESS RELEASE)_South Florida (August 15, 2023)— National Cheeseburger Day is coming up on Monday, September 18. Plan where to celebrate at one of these spots around Palm Beach County.
As one of America’s most iconic foods, there are countless theories as to the origin of cheeseburger, dating back as far as the 1920s. For example, Lionel Sternberger claimed to have invented the cheeseburger in 1926, whilst working at his father’s sandwich shop, The Rite Spot, in California. Another restaurant, Kaelin’s, located in Kentucky, swore they were the first to offer the cheeseburger in 1934. The founder of Steak n’ Shake also applied for the trademark of the cheeseburger in the 1930s.
While the origin of the cheeseburger is uncertain, one thing is for sure: the cheeseburger is a mouthwatering American classic sure to satisfy a savory craving. Check out these five fantastic restaurants in the area in celebration of the cheeseburger.
