So the cheeseburger was invented in 1926 and the story goes the cheeseburger was first made at a restaurant called the Rite Spot in Pasadena, California.

They say that the owner's 16 year old son decided to throw a piece of cheese on a patty that was cooking up on the grill.  People loved it so much they added is their menu, and called it the "cheese hamburger."

So that got me to thinking which is dangerous.  Who has the best Cheeseburger in Southwest Louisiana?  I asked listeners on the air and on Facebook "Who Has the Best Cheeseburger in Southwest Louisiana"?
