While people can debate the best condiments for a burger, plant-based burgers or even the idea of skipping the bun for lettuce, National Cheeseburger Day deals are one thing that can get everyone excited. Since national food holidays often bring special offers, it might be time to get a burger for both lunch and dinner. Is your appetite big enough?
