Back Yard Burgers Celebrates #NationalCheeseburgerDay with Special Offer Sept. 18

Back Yard Burgers Celebrates #NationalCheeseburgerDay with Special Offer Sept. 18Nashville, TN  (Restaurant News Release)  On Tuesday, Sept. 18 — National Cheeseburger Day — Back Yard Burgers honors this icon of American culture with a special offer: a Back Yard Burgers Classic with Cheese and regular-sized beverage for only $4.99.

A Back Yard Burgers Classic with Cheese uses 100 percent Black Angus beef, which is flame-grilled to achieve that signature back yard taste.  Then, it’s topped with your choice of American, Cheddar, Swiss, or Pepper Jack cheese. All Back Yard Burger Cheeseburgers are made to order, and topped with your choice of lettuce, tomato, pickles, onion, ketchup, mustard, and mayonnaise.

Though many different people lay claim to being the first to top a hamburger with cheese, the cheeseburger likely originated in the 1920s at a sandwich shop in Pasadena, California, when Lionel Sternberger dropped a piece of cheese onto a burger sizzling on the grill. Since then, Americans coast to coast have been consuming this cultural food icon.

“The tradition of gathering friends and family and cooking out in your backyard has been enjoyed by Americans for generations,” Scott Shotter, CEO of Back Yard Burgers, said.  “We are proud to be rooted in that tradition by bringing that flame-grilled taste to our guests every day. The cheeseburger is more than a tasty meal; it’s a symbol of good times with friends and family.”

On Tuesday, Sept. 18, participating Back Yard Burger locations will be offering a Back Yard Burgers Cheeseburger and regular-sized beverage for $4.99.  Be sure to hashtag your experience with #NationalCheeseburgerDay and #BackyardBurgers.
