Today, we recognize one of the greatest foods to have ever been created by man – the cheeseburger. Although many restaurants claim to be the birthplace of the sandwich, I’m less concerned about where it came from and more interested in who’s doing it right… and there are plenty that fit the bill!
Foursquare released a list “America’s Favorite Cheeseburger Spots” – the 10 top U.S. burger locations based on more than 4.5 billion check ins. A lot of big names are featured on the list (including Shake Shack and In-N-Out Burger) – I’m happy to say our own Zombie Burger + Drink Lab made the cut at number 6!
In celebration of the holiday, I’ve compiled a list of some of my past “burger-centric” posts including recipes and general burger discussion. Happy National Cheeseburger Day to you all!
George’s 1 a.m. Burger Bar – This post is all about a delicious spin on a classic – the deep fried burger.
Praise the Lard! – This is a burger recipe styled on the classic roadside joints of the Midwest. The patties are griddled with lard and onions for one of the most flavorful burgers you’ll ever have the pleasure of eating.
A Foodie’s Foraging Near and Far – This one’s all about the cheese-stuffed Juicy Lucy, a Minneapolis specialty.
A Zombie Burger Manifesto – In this post, I reflected on Zombie Burger being named “Best Restaurant Period” by Des Moines Cityview, and how Zombie Burger works to uphold the title.
When Burgers Were King – A reflection of the fast food joints of days gone by and a local joint where you can relive that era.
