Happy “National Cheeseburger Day”, Everyone!
I admit this day runs a VERY close second to Christmas as my favorite holiday of the year. On this 2016 “National Cheeseburger Day”, I want to share some of the greatest work in this field being done right now.
My friends, THIS IS WHAT A CHEESEBURGER SHOULD BE:
The recipe is simple: a fried beef patty that is topped with anything and everything that suits your fancy.
BACON OF COURSE!
You don’t need to go crazy with bacon, BUT IF YOU DID, it might turn out like this:
Still, that’s what makes a cheeseburger so much fun – there really are no rules…let me show you what I mean – let’s begin with some examples:
Chicago’s “Big Mack Daddy!”
I love when someone takes an iconic burger and pays a delicious tribute.
Big’n’Little’s in Chicago turns out an amazing “homage” to the Big Mac, and it’s a masterful bite of cheeseburger greatness!
See the recipe here, along with a look at their deep-fried cheeseburger as well:
For lovers of the “Burger With Cheese”, this is day of celebration. A great website has laid out a list of restaurants that have big plans for the day, and how you can take advantage of this holiday of taste:
A “Triple Triple” Worth $3,300!
If you are REALLY hungry, and want to make a few bucks, this place is for you!
As “Burgerbusiness.com” reports:
“Wayback Burgers will hold its ninth annual Triple Triple Challenge on September 18 at participating locations nationwide. Diners with big appetites are challenged to compete against the clock to take down Wayback’s nine-patty Triple Triple Burger. Whoever takes does so in the fastest time will be crowned Triple Triple “Chompion” and collect the $3,330 grand prize.”
There you go, a way to celebrate AND make some money, too!
See more great burger stories at the “Burger Business” website here:
I love the “Burger Business” website, as it gets into monthly burger specials across the country, the “business” of burgers, and he focuses on huge burger chain and innovative one-stops as well…speaking of which:
Seattle’s Brilliant “Lunchbox Laboratory!”
In my home town of Seattle, these “Burger Scientists” are always working on a great new burger, such as the “homage” to Seattle’s legendary Dick’s Drive-In and their “Dick’s Deluxe”:
There are so many great burgers to try at The Lunchbox Laboratory, and the original “Dick’s Drive-In” is terrific as well!
See the best of both restaurants here:
Time to also head to Napa valley and enjoy the best burger in wine country:
Taylor’s Refresher – A Wino’s Favorite Bite!
Yes, in the heart of Napa Valley wine country is one of the best burgers in the country – Taylor’s Refresher serves great burgers, garlic fries, an Ahi Tuna burger, and yes, wine!

There are great restaurants all across the country – all delivering burgers to die for:
Doughnut Burgers, Thanks To PYT Burger!
Philadelphia’s PYT Burger is expanding, and for good reason: above you can see their “bacon-glazed doughnut cheeseburger” – and now, check out their latest burger:
Chicken Bacon Eggo Sliders!
While NOT technically a cheeseburger, it still looks delicious, and with this level of creativity, who cares?
PYT’s new burger is a fried chicken mini burgers. Chipotle Maple sauce. Applewood smoked bacon. Maple brushed Mini Eggo buns. YUM.

Even rapidly expanding burger chains have great bites on this special day:
Bite Into Shake Shack!
Shake Shack keeps expanding all across the country, and with cheeseburgers like this, you can understand why:
Shake Shack has a great regular menu, and always specials to enjoy as well…see them here:
Enjoy this great holiday by biting into something big and cheesey today!
