MYRTLE BEACH, SC (WMBF) - Monday, September 18 is National Cheeseburger Day, and several restaurants in our area are offering deals in celebration of the day.

Like many of these new national holidays, the origin of National Cheeseburger Day is not known, and the birth of the cheeseburger itself is often disputed. One popular story credits the cheeseburger to Lionel Sternberger, who experimentally dropped a slice of American cheese on a sizzling hamburger while working as a fry cook at his father's restaurant "The Rite Spot" in Pasadena, California.

On average, Americans eat three cheeseburgers per week, for a national total of nearly 50 billion burgers per year, according to an infographic from website Offers.com. The world's largest burger was made on July 9, 2017 in Pilsting Germany, and weighed 2,567.5 pounds. It took over 300 people to make it. 

Without further ado, here are those Cheeseburger Day deals:

Hwy 55:

Hwy 55 Burgers, Shakes & Fries, a North Carolina-based diner with five locations in our area, will be trying to set a company record for selling the most cheeseburgers ever in a single day.

From 5 p.m. to close, Hwy 55 will feature their burgers for only 55¢. Each burger is topped with seasonings and a choice of American, Swiss, provolone, and pepper jack cheeses. Other toppings are also available. There is a limit of two cheeseburgers per guest and the offer is dine-in only.

If you're really hungry, you could always try the 55 Challenge. If you can eat a burger with 55 ounces of meat and four trimmings, plus fries and a 24-ounce drink in less than 30 minutes, it's free. You'll also be immortalized on the Hwy. 55 website. But if you can't finish the monster meal, be prepared to pay $29.99.

In the video above, you can see Molly Schuyler, a 100-pound mother of four, set a world record at the Hwy 55 World Cheeseburger Eating Competition. She ate seven stacked Hwy 55 cheeseburgers, side of fries and a 20 oz. drink in 1 minute, 37 seconds. That is 5.7 pounds of food/drink, or 5.7 percent of her body weight.
