National Double Cheeseburger Day

If you're in the mood for a juicy burger loaded with cheese, you’re in luck. Go grab some buns, folks. Sept. 15 is National Double Cheeseburger Day, an annual food holiday that celebrates not one, but two delicious cheeseburgers nicely packaged in one delightful buttery bun.

Imagine biting into not one, but two delicious patties dripping with ooey, gooey cheese! Legend has it that foodie John-Bryan Hopkins of Foodimentary, "invented" National Double Cheeseburger Day.

Whether you prefer yours loaded with all the trimmings, hot off the grill or at your favorite restaurant, folks have been enjoying cheeseburgers since they were "invented" back in the 1920s. While there is some debate as to who actually invented the cheeseburger, 16-year-old Lionel Sternberger is often credited as the inventor. is often credited as the inventor. Some say the teen was working as a short-order cook at The Rite Spot on Route 66 when he added a slice of cheese to a burger, and the rest, as they say, is history!

In honor of National Double Cheeseburger Day, why not celebrate the event by indulging in one or two double cheeseburgers? And speaking of food holidays, today is also National Linguine Day and National Creme de Menthe Day.
