The history of the appearance of a cheeseburger from the words of the staff of the Rite Spot in Pasadena, which they recently told everyone is like that. Cheeseburger was invented in their restaurant and it happened by accident, by mistake. Lionel Sternberger, a young chef who worked at this roadside diner in the 20s of the last century, fried a hamburger and decided to go for a trick. Instead of throwing out the hamburger, he disguised his mistake by putting a piece of cheese on top and melting it a little. The presented hamburger was very popular with the visitor.
