Hamburgers are beloved by Americans, whether you prefer a Big Mac or a fancy Wagyu beef burger. The meaty sandwich gets its own holiday, National Hamburger Day, on May 28, wrapping up National Burger Month. The day of the burger takes place close to Memorial Day, a time when many people fire up their grills and enjoy hamburgers at a holiday cookout.
