For all the national food holidays out there—and there are a lot, dedicated to everything from doughnuts to French fries—National Cheeseburger Day has to be one of our favorites. Nothing beats a fresh-off-the-grill burger, piping hot and juicy with a cloak of melted cheese on top, so we feel it’s a food well-worth celebrating. As it turns out, restaurants agree. On September 18th, several food and beverage companies will be offering free and discounted cheeseburgers to honor the holiday—Red Robin will sell a whole cheeseburger meal for $5, while Shari’s is giving out Beyond Burgers on a pretzel bun for $1. Check out all of the deals we’ve found so far below, and keep checking back up until Wednesday, September 18 in case more are announced.
