We all love burgers (this includes vegetarian varieties), but sure enough, not many know about the burger's history. Read more ....

13th Century:
Wild, nomadic horsemen from various tribes of Tartary, invent the century's earliest known precursor of the hamburger. Legend has it that as they pushed their way across Russia and Eastern Europe, it was their custom to place a filet under their saddle for safekeeping. By dinnertime, the steak was tenderized and ready to serve, minced and uncooked.


14th Century Hamburg, Germany:
German merchant sailors crossing the Baltic Sea observe the Latvians, Estonians and Finns eating an early version of steak tartar chopped raw beef. The Germans acquire a taste for it and bring it back to Hamburg. Resourceful German chefs cook the meat lightly with chopped onions. The result... the Hamburg Steak.


19th Century:
The Hamburg Steak is introduced to the United States by German immigrants in the form of broiled chopped steak. Hamburg Steak gradually makes its way onto the menus of American restaurants.


1834:
The first documented American appearance of the Hamburg Steak is on the menu of New York's fabled Delmonico's restaurant.


1885:
According to some sources, Charlie Nagreen of Seymour, Wisconsin invents the American hamburger at the age of 15 when he delivers it from his ox-drawn concession stand at the Outagamie County Fair.


1892:
A German, Frank Menches, introduced the sandwich at his fast food stall at the Summit County Fair in Ohio, when he runs out of bulk pork sausage for his sandwiches and substitutes beef.


1896:
Hamburg Steak makes its first cookbook appearance in Fannie Farmer's Boston Cooking-School Cookbook.


1900:
Another story credits Louis Lassen of New Haven Connecticut, with creating the hamburger steak in 1900 as a means for using the trimmings from the steak sandwich he features at his lunch wagon.


1904:
The hamburger gets its first widespread attention at the 1904 World's Fair in St. Louis, Missouri where it creates a sensation. Several authorities believe the vendor in question was Fletcher Davis, who owned a lunch counter in Athens, Texas. Davis' offspring say he's the king of the burger makers.


1916:
Short-order cook, J. Walter Anderson, later owner and creator of White Castle, creates the first hamburger bun. Prior to 1916, hamburgers were generally served between two slices of bread.


1921:
Hamburger pioneers Walt Anderson and Billy Ingram found their first White Castle in Wichita, Kansas, featuring square, baby burgers sold by the sack. White Castle will later become the world's first hamburger chain.


1924:
California grill chef Lionel Sternberger concocts the first "cheese hamburger" in Pasadena, California at The Rite Spot restaurant.


1930’s:
The White Castle chain develops the first pre-frozen patties.


1937:
The double-decker is created by Bob Wian, later owner of Bob's Big Boy, at his first hamburger stand in Glendale, California.


1995 to present:
Today, burgers remain America's, and Filipinos' as well, favorite food.
