So why is there a National Day Cheeseburger? The commemoration of the day is related to the birth of the first cheeseburger in America. It was Lionel Sternberger, the creator and maker of the first cheeseburger.

Cheeseburgers are born from the habits of a young man

The unplanned "birth" of the cheeseburger. Quoted from The Spruce, all this started from the penchant of young Lionel and his father who liked to add cheese to the layers of hamburgers they ate.

It is said that young Lionel liked to mix hamburgers according to his passion whenever he visited Rite Spot, the name of his father's meat and vegetable bakery in California. It was 1924.

That was the beginning of the birth of the cheeseburger. But they call it a "cheese hamburger."

Other versions of the Cheeseburger

Another historical record, which is called cheeseburger began at Kaelin restaurant in Louisville, Kentucky. Charles Kaelin claims to have invented the cheese-coated burger in 1934.

That's because Charles added layer cheese to hamburgers, reports Louisville writer Robin Garr.

Then there was Louis Ballast of Humpty Dumpty Drive-In in Denver, who had their trade called "cheeseburgers" in 1935.

Although the history of the birth of cheeseburgers has many versions, National Cheeseburger Day appears to commemorate the birth of cheeseburgers. In the United States, National Cheeseburger Day falls every September 18.
