About National Cheeseburger Day

Date When Celebrated: National Cheeseburger Day is always observed on September 18

National Cheeseburger Day is today. Top off America’s favorite sandwich, with a piece of cheese. The food industry makes it a point to celebrate a wide variety of foods. We believe burgers certainly merit a special day. The hamburger has its day of glory in May. So, this September 18 holiday is all about the cheeseburger, topped with any and everything you want on it. 

Celebrate National Cheeseburger Day by firing up the grill, and cooking cheeseburgers. You can do so for lunch or dinner…. or both! Any kind of cheese will do. Try a different cheese, if you’re adventuresome. For the carb-conscious, eat your burgers without the buns.

Watch for……. luncheon and dinner specials today at your local restaurants. Tops on the specials board certainly should be cheeseburgers!
