|Founded||Sanibel Island, Florida (1986)|
Cheeburger Cheeburger is a 1950s-style burger restaurant chain that started on Sanibel Island, Florida, United States, in 1986. They specialize in cheeseburgers, french fries, onion rings, and milkshakes.
There are 64 locations across the United States. Cheeburger Cheeburger was featured in the June 2008 issue of San Diego Magazine[why?]. Also, their first international chain opened in Kuwait.
When Cheeburger Cheeburger opened a restaurant in Glenview, Illinois, they were sued by Billy Goat Tavern, which had served as the inspiration for the original Olympia Cafe Saturday Night Live parody. An out-of-court settlement was reached wherein the restaurant changed the name of the Glenview location to simply Cheeburger and agreed not to open another restaurant within 125 miles of downtown Chicago.
