The 3rd annual Pasadena Cheeseburger Week begins on Sunday and will last up till Friday (Jan 12th 2014– Jan 17th 2014). Within the heart of Pasadena, over 40 restaurants are slated to serve their best in their concept of the cheeseburger. Some being of Pasadena’s favorite restaurants, lounges, and burger joints will offer their signature dishes including special creations and deals.
Started in 1924, the cheeseburger got its name from Lionel Sternberger’s idea of adding the cheese to the hamburger bun. One story goes – Sternberger accidentally burnt a hamburger bun and while feeling obliged to cover it, he added a slice of cheese to it.
We invite readers to also vote on the best of Pasadena Cheeseburger Week.
Also, stay tuned as we will feature our reviews later on this week.
