A Tribute to the Inventor of the Burger

Its origin is controversial. The burger supposedly originated in the early 1900s when a man in Texas stuck a Hamburg steak between two slices of bread.

Maybe he was just in a rush and needed a way to eat his steak and bread fast. Either way, we will never have a full account of what happened that day, but we do have the burger and with it, we can do great things.
