National Cheeseburger Day, on Tuesday, September 18, may be ignored by some, but at Tom & Eddie's, this observance is revered.
To celebrate the occasion, for one day only, Tom & Eddie's will offer $1 off all cheeseburgers.
There is no doubt that Americans love their cheeseburgers. Tom Dentice and Ed Rensi, cofounders 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 says. “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 in the 1920s by Chef Lionel Sternberger. As the story goes, a man dining at Sternberger's restaurant in Pasadena, California, 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, Illinois.
