Fire up the grill! Tuesday is National Hamburger Day


(KRON/WRIC) — Your grill may have hardly cooled off from Memorial Day, but plan to fire it up again! 

Tuesday, May 28 is recognized as National Hamburger Day. 

There’s probably no sandwich more near and dear to American’s hearts. We eat more than 50 billion burgers each year. 

According to, Five Guys is the most popular burger spot with 28% of 1,200 consumers surveyed. 

In-N-Out and Wendy’s ties for second with 17% votes each, and McDonald’s and Burger King round out the top five at 15% and 14% respectively.

The meat patty and bun combo account for almost half of all sandwiches sold in the U.S.

To celebrate, grab a big juicy burger for lunch — or throw some on the grill after work to enjoy with family and friends.
