Take a look at how cheeseburgers have been part of pop culture for generations.


Friday is considered to be one of the cheesiest and meatiest days of the year.

September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day and the restaurants celebrate the holiday with makeup and discounts and free burgers. And unlike some other nutrition days, this one isn’t canceled by the coronavirus pandemic.

McDonald’s, which is running out of ingredients due to the popularity of its limited Travis Scott meal, will have another cheeseburger day deal on Friday. For one day, the fast food giant is offering double cheeseburgers for 50 cents with an offer on its mobile app.

Ahead of National Cheeseburger Day, Wendy announced the return of the pretzel buns and “the new and improved cheeseburger in the pretzel and bacon pub”.
