Cheeburger Cheeburger’s menus claim it to be famous for its “Pounder" burger, which is 20 ounces of beef before cooking. Anyone who finishes the entire burger can have their picture taken holding a stuffed fabric “Pounder" and hung on that restaurant’s Wall of Fame. There is also a Wall of Fame for children, where children under 12 years old may appear if they eat a half-pound burger. If they are above the age of 12 they are unable to be on the half-pound wall, but are still able to appear on the regular pounder wall upon completion of a 1 pound burger.

When Cheeburger Cheeburger opened a restaurant in Glenview, Illinois, they were sued byBilly Goat Tavern, which had served as the inspiration for the original Saturday Night Liveparody. 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.[1][2]
