Do you prefer your burger with bacon, lots of ketchup and skip the pickles, all on a sesame bun? Whatever your favorite is you’re not alone.

So, to celebrate the fan fave burger what not take part in National Cheeseburger Day this Sunday, Sept.  18?

According to the Burger Index – a study on consumption preferences and trends in America conducted by market research Top Data — there has been a significant increase in demand for burgers in the country. And Americans’ better half is the traditional cheeseburger so much so that this classic American food has grown by 10.6%, as consumer visits to 12 of the largest burger chains have increased since last year. Also, the highest consumption figures in the country were reported in May.

Burgers are the classic American meal, with french fries or onion rings … everyone in the country loves them! Do you know what California’s favorite chain is?
