Many ways to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day at Wings Etc. Grill & Pub

Stop by Wings Etc. Grill & Pub on National Cheeseburger Day, Sept. 18, 2021, to try one of many burgers on the menu

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (Sept. 10, 2021)— The cheeseburger is one of America’s favorite foods; so, it comes as no surprise to find out that there is a national day to celebrate the beef and cheese sandwich. This year, National Cheeseburger Day is on Sept. 18, and there are plenty of ways to celebrate at your local Wings Etc. Grill & Pub, known for more than just their jumbo Buffalo wings.

Burger and cheese fans have Lionel Sternberger to thank for the union that created the cheeseburger. Allegedly, 16-year-old Sternberger, who was working as a fry cook at his family’s sandwich shop in Pasadena, California, dropped a piece of American cheese on a hot hamburger in 1926. Since then, food-lovers and grill-masters have devised many culinary creations that feature a hamburger with cheese.

From the mild taste of American cheese on the “Hugh Jazz” 1 lb. Burger, to a spicier option with pepper-jack cheese on the Jalapeno Bacon Burger, at Wings Etc., guests can celebrate National Cheeseburger Day with a variety of burger options.

Those wanting to commemorate the day in an extra cheesy way can opt for the Wings Etc. Three-Cheese Burger, which comes stacked with cheddar, Swiss, and American cheese, as well as sauteed onions and garlic aioli sauce. Those looking for a classic option can try the All-American Diner Burger, complete with two grilled-thin-and-crispy burger patties separated with two slices of American cheese. The burger also comes with a choice of lettuce, tomato, onion, pickle, mayo, ketchup, and mustard.

Vegetarians rejoice! National Cheeseburger Day at Wings Etc. can also be celebrated by non-meat eaters with the option of substituting a Beyond Burger patty on any diner burger.

No matter how you prefer a cheeseburger, celebrate the occasion all day long with “Good Food, Great Times” at your local Wings Etc. on Saturday, Sept. 18, 2021.
