National Cheeseburger Day at Tom & Eddie’s

National Cheeseburger Day at Tom & Eddie's

National Cheeseburger Day – Tuesday, Sept. 18 – may be ignored by some, but at Tom & Eddie’s, this observance is revered. It is truly a day that is “extra special with cheese on top.” To celebrate the occasion, for one day only, Tom & Eddie’s offers $1 off all cheeseburgers.

There is no doubt that Americans love their cheeseburgers. Tom Dentice and Ed Rensi, co-founders of Tom & Eddie’s, especially love their cheeseburgers. At their four restaurants in Chicagoland, they offer plenty of cheese choices: Deluxe American, sharp cheddar, pepper Jack, Swiss, melted Brie, Wisconsin smoked Gouda, crumbled blue cheese, feta, fresh Mozzarella and goat cheese.

“We love cheeseburgers so much we started a restaurant devoted to them,” Rensi said. “Tom and I agree that there is nothing as good as a juicy, well made cheeseburger.”

There are several theories about the origins of the cheeseburger. One story claims that the cheeseburger was created between in the 1920s by Chef Lionel Sternberger. As the story goes, a man dining at Sternberger’s restaurant in Pasadena, Calif., suggested the addition of a slice of cheese to his hamburger order. Sternberger complied. Eventually he added it to his menu.

Tom & Eddie’s provides its customers with fresh, never frozen, 100 percent premium Angus gourmet burgers, personal customer service and a relaxed and happy dining experience. Tom & Eddie’s also offers catering for business meetings or events. Locations are in Lombard, Geneva, Deerfield, Vernon Hills and coming soon – Naperville.
