Jump into some loose-fitting jeans and get ready to savor some mouthwatering deals on National Cheeseburger Day.

Several establishments will celebrate America’s favorite entree on Monday by rolling out promotions. Here is a list of beefy opportunities to satiate your burger cravings.


Participating Applebee’s restaurants will be offering a classic burger meal. Guests dining in or ordering online can get a handcrafted burger and a side of classic fries for only $8.99.

The restaurant’s classic burger is an all-beef patty served on a brioche bun and topped with lettuce, tomato, onion, and pickles. Cheese and bacon are available at no extra cost.

“Applebee’s fresh, never frozen Handcrafted Burgers are an American favorite — and the perfect way to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day,” said Applebee’s Chief Marketing Officer Joel Yashinsky in a press release.


Dine-in customers at BurgerFi can take advantage of the chain’s $3 double cheeseburger deal. All they need to do to get a discounted burger is to purchase one Coca-Cola freestyle beverage.

While the chain has several burger creations on offer — such as its BBQ rodeo burger and spicy Wagyu burger — the promotion is for its signature cheeseburger, which features two Angus beef patties, two slices of American cheese, lettuce, tomato, and BurgerFi sauce tucked in a sliced bun made fresh in-house.

“BurgerFi wants to own National Cheeseburger Day as our brand holiday,” said BurgerFi’s Chief Marketing Officer Cindy Syracuse in a press release. “Our mission is the ‘BurgerFi-cation’ of the world, so we hope people will come in and find out what a better burger experience truly is.”
