Cheeseburger, Cheeseburger: Thanks, Lionel!

Legend has it that the teenaged Sternberger burned a patty and, rather than throw it away and risk the ire of his boss (and Dad), he put a piece of cheese on the burned side to cover his mistake and served it to a customer who was delighted. The Aristocratic Burger (Sternberger’s hamburger with cheese) sold for 15 cents and drew customers from throughout the area. (Pasadena Chamber of Commerce)

Shall you indulge in a dry-aged burger from Kings Row Gastropub? Or, the lamb burger at Haven Gastropub + Brewery? If a cheeseburger salad sounds intriguing, you’ll want to pop over to Slater’s 50/50. If height is no object, The Counter’s monster burger may be a delightful challenge.

Commencing on Sunday, January 12th, over 40 restaurants will create and serve cheeseburgers in hopes of becoming the numero uno of cheeseburger spots in Pasadena. Voting ends January 19th. Find out every delicious detail at PasadenaRestaurantWeek.com.
