These days, burger toppings run the gamut from avocado to bacon to fried eggs, but nothing compares to the sheer stroke of genius that happened when someone decided to add a slice of cheese on top of the beef patty. Today, we celebrate this culinary masterpiece in the form of a national holiday.
In honor of this day, some of your favorite burger joints are offering great deals and promotions to help you celebrate!
Five Guys Burgers and Fries has partnered with Kraft to donate the equivalent of every burger purchased to Feeding America - an organization that runs food banks across the United States.
Smashburger in New Jersey is giving away free burgers to anyone with the last name "Burger." Now that's an odd promotion, but apparently there are 500+ Burgers in the New Jersey area, so for those 500 people, today is their lucky day!
Denny's is giving away free cheeseburger flatbread with the order of any two burgers from their build-Your-Own-Burger menu.
