 Good to Know STORY

The hamburger, a quintessential American dish, is believed to have originated around 1900, with one popular story attributing its creation to Louis Lassen in Connecticut. This simple yet innovative concept of placing a grilled ground beef patty between two slices of bread quickly gained popularity, evolving into the classic American hamburger. Since then, it has become a global fast-food staple, with countless variations and toppings catering to diverse tastes.
