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.

The first international chain opened in Kuwait, but has since closed.[citation needed]

There are 23 locations across the United States and one each in Saudi Arabia and Canada, with two more opening in the United States in spring 2019.

In 2017, Cheeburger Cheeburger was acquired by Premier Restaurant Group.[1]

Legal matters[edit]

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.[2][3]
