The first burger dates back to the 1880s, and the inventor of the burger is up for argument though. One thing that is all agreed is that the first burger originated from the United States. From St Louis to Wisonsin and Connecticut, there’s is little in written history to prove the multiple claims made by various families on who had invented the original order.
