If you thought Burger King lost its damn mind when it began serving hot dogs at all U. On August 15, the fast-food chain with no regard for basic decency will begin offering a cheeseburger burrito nationwide. It's called, naturally, the Whopperito.

A cheesesteak also known as a Philadelphia cheesesteak , Philly cheesesteak , cheesesteak sandwich , cheese steak , or steak and cheese is a sandwich made from thinly sliced pieces of steak and melted cheese in a long hoagie roll. The cheesesteak was developed in the early 20th century "by combining frizzled beef, onions, and cheese in a small loaf of bread", according to a exhibition catalog published by the Library Company of Philadelphia and the Historical Society of Pennsylvania. Philadelphians Pat and Harry Olivieri are often credited with inventing the sandwich by serving chopped steak on an Italian roll in the early s. While Pat was eating the sandwich, a cab driver stopped by and was interested in it, so he requested one for himself. After eating it, the cab driver suggested that Olivieri quit making hot dogs and instead focus on the new sandwich.
