National Cheeseburger Day Deals 2020

We love made-up food holidays that mean everyone gets a good deal! (And I mean no disrespect – it’s just that someone, somewhere makes up these days, right?)

Whatever its origins, National Cheeseburger Day has been declared to be September 18, and we are at this very moment scouring the city in search of National Cheeseburger Day deals in the Wichita area to help you celebrate your love of cheeseburgers. (We usually hear about them closer to the date, so be sure to check back in the weeks ahead.) If you hear about one we don’t have yet, give us a shout in the comments section!

You could also celebrate at home this year with your own homemade cheeseburger. Find out where the ground beef and cheese sales are in our guide to this week’s best grocery deals

Last year, we saw cheeseburger day deals from Red Robin, McDonalds, Sonic, and Wendy’s. No telling which burger joints will participate, but here’s what we know so far…

Red Robin National Cheeseburger Day Deal

National Cheeseburger Day 2019 Red Robin deal
Red Robin’s Gourmet Cheeseburger features a fresh, never frozen beef patty fire-grilled to juicy perfection and topped with Red’s pickle relish, red onions, pickles, lettuce, tomatoes, mayo and choice of cheese.

This cheeseburger day deal is full of yum. Red Robin will offer a buy-one-get-one 50% off deal on any of its Gourmet and Finest burgers. If you’re ordering online just use the promo code BOGO.

And instead of celebrating only one day, this National Cheeseburger Day deal will be available all week long. For more info, visit the Red Robin Facebook page here.

McDonald’s National Cheeseburger Day Deal

This may vary from location to location, so definitely double-check before you order! But here’s what our neighbor to the west (in Colorado) heard from McDonalds:

“National Cheeseburger Day is tomorrow, Sept. 18, and McDonald’s is celebrating with an offer for a $0.50 McDonald’s Double Cheeseburger! Limit one per customer. To get this deal: use Mobile Order and Pay, add the deal to your order or scan the deal code at the Drive Thru, Front Counter or Kiosk, where applicable.”

Southeast Carryout

Wichita’s Southeast Carryout has announced a National Cheeseburger Day deal for 2020 on its Facebook page that’s also a charity fundraiser. Get a regular cheeseburger for only $2 on Sept. 18, 2020. For every cheeseburger sold, they’ll donate a dollar to Ketch.

Applebees is joining the ranks of restaurants offering National Cheeseburger Day deals on September 18 with a promotional price on its Classic Bacon Cheeseburger and endless fries for $8.99.

Applebee’s Classic Bacon Cheeseburger is one of the Handcrafted Burgers, made with your choice of two cheese slices (American, Cheddar, Swiss, or Pepper Jack), two strips of Applewood-smoked bacon and topped with lettuce, tomato, onion and pickles, all packaged up on a Brioche bun.

Along with the fries, this one-day only deal is a steal for National Cheeseburger Day!

Wichita has tons of Applebees locations. Find your nearest one here.

Five Guys

Five Guys alluded to “something special” for National Cheeseburger Day on September 18 and apparently ketchup will be involved. We don’t know what it is.

The burger features a soft pretzel bun, a quarter pound of beef, Muenster cheese, three strips of Applewood smoked bacon, smoky honey mustard, warm beer cheese sauce, fried onions and pickles.

If you don’t mind celebrating a little bit early, you can drive in to Sonic for some 1/2 price cheeseburgers on Tuesday night. We won’t call you out on it. (Consider it training for the real day.) And who knows? Sonic might decide to have a deal on the 18th as well.
