Cheeseburger Week in Pasadena January 15 thru 20

Celebrating the Pasadena/American classic

Ah yes! The all American Cheeseburger. It was back in 1920 when Lionel Sternberger is reputed to have invented the cheeseburger at the age of 16 when he was working as a fry cook at his father’s Pasadena, California sandwich shop, “The Rite Spot,” and “experimentally dropped a slab of American cheese on a sizzling hamburger.

Next week Pasadena chamber of commerce presents Pasadena Cheeseburger week. So come and celebrate the birth of the Cheeseburger. Not just burger joints, but a variety of restaurants will be putting their very own spin on the American Classic. That’s right some of Pasadena favorite eateries such as Gales, Crepe Studio, Lebanese kitchen and Toro Sushi Bar will be celebrating by giving you their take on the cheeseburger.
