It seems simple enough: bun, meat, cheese…but in 1924, when Lionel Sternberger invented the cheeseburger while working at his father’s Pasadena roadside stand, he created an obsession that continues to this day. Fast forward a few decades… Sternberger is still considered a big cheese as Pasadena restaurants and locals alike continue to honor his genius with a week dedicated to cheeseburgers. Forty of Pasadena’s favorite restaurants, lounges, and burger joints will offer signature burgers, creations, and deals during the week-long celebration.
Some participants such as El Portal, Dog Haus, The Luggage Room at La Grande Orange, The Great Maple and The Langham Huntington Hotel Pasadena (Taproom, Royce Wood-Fired Steakhouse and TheTerrace) offer specially created burgers for Cheeseburger Week. Still others offer special deals, such as Pie ‘n Burger and Dog Haus.
New in 2020 are Granville, Alexander’s Steakhouse and Roy’s.
