Cheeseburgers have been a beloved staple of American cuisine since the 1920s.
In 1924, a young 16-year-old named Lionel Sternberger, while working at his father’s sandwich shop, had the ingenious idea of placing a slice of American cheese on a hamburger patty, as documented by the Carnegie Museum of Natural History website. This novel creation earned its moniker, the “cheeseburger,” at Kaelin’s, a restaurant in Kentucky. The term was later officially trademarked in 1935 by Louis Ballast, the proprietor of the Humpty Dumpty Drive-In in Colorado.
In due course, the nation came to recognize September 18th as National Cheeseburger Day, a day of widespread celebration. In honor of this occasion, fast-food chains known for their hamburgers often extend generous offers, including discounts or complimentary cheeseburgers, to their patrons.
