Drop your kale salads! It’s National Cheeseburger Day, and Dog Haus is offering its new mini cheeseburger for free at all of its locations until 5 p.m. Wednesday.
Though there are several competing claims about who invented the first cheeseburger, one story attributes it to a fry cook in Pasadena. Circa 1926, Lionel Sternberger slapped a piece of cheese on a sizzling burger at his dad’s Rite Spot sandwich shop, and the rest is history.
Dog Haus’ cheeseburger is 2 ounces of Angus beef with grilled onion, melted white American cheese, grilled tomatoes and Haus sauce on a King’s Hawaiian bun.
Locations include two Dog Hauses in Pasadena and one in Alhambra.
