There is no better comfort food then a cheeseburger and fries. And, if you’re craving one, today’s National Cheeseburger Day. Therefore, if you needed a reason to indulge, this is it.

Like many National holidays, it is unclear why it falls on September 18. However, in my opinion, there are two ways to celebrate.

The first is to simply eat a cheeseburger. In Connecticut, there are so many places to get your hands on one. Some of my favorite burger joints include: Nick’s Charpit in North Haven, Clamp’s Hamburger Stand in New Milford, Burgers, Shakes, and Fries in Greenwich and Darien, and Harry’s Place in Colchester. We also can not forget Glenwood in Hamden, Max Burger in West Hartford, Prime 16 in New Haven and Orange, and Haywire Burger Bar in Westbrook. Last, but certainly not least, there is also Lois Lunch in New Haven, which is the original birthplace of the burger.

The second is my personal favorite, which is to take advantage of all of the freebies. And, there are a ton of great deals around that you can take advantage of today. After all, what better pick me up is there then free food? I honestly don’t know.

So, look no further if you’re looking for a deal. Here are some places across the state who are offering some amazing deals:

IHOP: Well, they were once known as the International House of Burgers. But, today they are giving away a free stack of buttermilk or pumpkin pancakes with any purchase of the Ultimate Steak Burger and a side.
