It's a great day for a cheeseburger on National Cheeseburger Day!

Cheeseburgers rule, especially when they're created with top quality ground round beef with a Ciabatta or Kaiser bun. When I cook up cheeseburgers at home, I'll buy one pound of the leanest beef I can find and mix in a package of onion soup mix with a splash of A1 Sauce and a splash of Soy Sauce along with a healthy sprinkle of salt and pepper. Mmmm Mmmmm! According to cheeseburger lovers in greater Danbury, I've listed 10 of the best locations to find a succulent mouth watering cheeseburger on National Cheeseburger Day 2018.


  • Purestock

    Lake Zoar Drive In - Stevenson

    Not that it should make a difference, but the Whitehorse is one of my top 3 favorite restaurants in Connecticut.
