Big deals served up to celebrate National Cheeseburger Day


NASHVILLE, Tenn. (WKRN) —Wednesday is yet another unofficial holiday as Sept. 18 is National Cheeseburger Day. The day is a chance for cheeseburger lovers alike to celebrate the American classic.

There are a lot of great places to grab a burger in Middle Tennessee.

News 2 went to check out Gabby’s Burgers and Fries on Humphrey’s Street in the Wedgewood-Houston neighborhood.

At Gabby’s you can customize your burger whichever way you like it but they also have a secret menu with several Nashville stars having creations named after them.

September’s special is the Mariota burger, named for Titans quarterback Marcus Mariota.

“We marinate it in pineapple, soy sauce, ginger, garlic, brown sugar. We put all that in a pot, let it come almost to a boil, marinate it for two days, put it on a charbroiler so all that stuff comes together and carmelizes. Then throw some bacon on top, because you know we love bacon, bacon on top, pepperjack cheese, I prefer cheddar, and you can’t go wrong with a grilled bun. Yeah, the Mariota is the way to go. It would probably give Mariota some better luck if he’d come on in and get one!” explained manager Margaret Rogers.
