Holy moly… does the cheeseburger in the photo at the top of this post look delicious, or what? It’s been a while since we last covered one of these silly made-up holidays because, well, they were really starting to annoy us. Sure, they’re better than most traditional made-up holidays since you get to enjoy deals on some tasty food instead of having to stress and cough up cash for presents for people. But even still, there’s a weird holiday for just about everything now, and we couldn’t take it anymore. Until today, that is.

If there’s one thing in America that truly deserves to be celebrated, it’s the cheeseburger. Seriously, just look at that thing up there. It’s a marvel of food engineering and it’s just plain delicious. In fact, the only thing better than a cheeseburger is a cheeseburger that you get at a discount or even for free. Thankfully, today is National Cheeseburger Day so deals abound!

As it so often does, rounded up all the best freebies and discounts for National Cheeseburger Day 2019, and you’ll find them all listed below. Pick your favorite one and head out for lunch to take advantage — or heck, why stop at one!?
