National Cheeseburger Day is just around the “Corner”

It’s that time of year again! Time to celebrate the all-American Cheeseburger. Just like last year, we’re promoting the various cheeseburgers to be had at any one of a number of local haunts, drive-ins and ethnic joints.

Known to Nor’easters old and not-so-old is this iconic Historic Northeast location that served up not only cheeseburgers, but deli sandwiches, ice cream, and probably sparked a high school romance or two in the process.

Cascio’s Corner was located at 4603-05 St. John Avenue, right across from the old Gladstone Theater.

According to the promotional message on the back of the postcard, Cascio’s Corner was an “old-fashioned soda fountain, delicatessen and grill” that featured “good food at reasonable prices.”

Call ahead orders were encouraged to dial BE 1-ROSS or 7877. The BE translates to the old school “Benton” telephone exchange.

Cascio’s Corner opened in the mid-1960s and was a favorite after-school location for hundreds of Northeast kids that attended Gladstone Elementary or Northeast Junior or Senior High a few blocks away.

In 1979, the restaurant closed. Later that year, in the August 30th edition, The Northeast News announced their move to the old Cascio’s Corner space.

National Cheeseburger Day will be celebrated next Wednesday, September 18th. Be sure to check out our full page promotional ad for great burger locations throughout the Historic Northeast community, some on the main drag, others off the beaten path in some highly unlikely locations.

We’ll be promoting the event on all of our social media and web outlets, as well. Be sure to send us pictures of your favorite burgers by next Tuesday for a chance to win Renaissance Festival tickets!
