Thank Lionel Sternberger for being the first person to put cheese on top of a hamburger at the Rite Spot Pasadena in 1924.
The city of Pasadena now celebrates with Cheeseburger Week and this year 40 restaurants, bars and lounges will participate, offering up signature burgers, special creations and burger deals around town.
Burger festivities will take place over a span of six days from January 10th to January 15th, 2016.
Our favorite participants include: Kings Row Gastropub, Dog Haus, Pie ‘n Burger, Del Frisco’s Grille, Luggage Room, Magnolia House, Slater’s 50/50 and Umami Burger.
Interested in doing a Cheeseburger Crawl in Pasadena? You can plan your own or follow one of the city’s suggested Cheeseburger Crawl routes.
