|What is National Hamburger Day?|
National Hamburger Day is a favorite food holiday in the United States. Top it with lettuce, tomato, pickle, and onion-or toss on a slice of cheese with some ketchup and mustard. Whether you go gourmet or just plain bread and beef, you're sure to end up with a full stomach! Like Hot Dog Day and Cheeseburger Day, this celebration usually occurs during sunny weather when people can get outside to grill their own beef. Of course, burger joints across the nation also chip in to make it a belt-busting day, with plenty of special deals. All in all, Americans down 50 billion burgers a year-and this old-time favorite accounts for 4 out of every 10 sandwiches sold in the U.S. A couple more fun hamburger facts: The biggest burger ever on a restaurant menu was 185.8 pounds and cost almost $500.
