Bob’s Burgers Review: It’s Fun to Eat at the rYe-MCA Burger

It’s Sunday Morning, and that can only mean one thing: last night, I made and ate a hamburger. Specifically, a burger featured on the hit series Bob’s Burgers


It’s Fun to Eat at the rYe-MCA Burger [S2:E6 “Dr. Yap”]

About the Episode – When Bob goes to the dentist (Dr. Yap), Linda minds the store and the kids. Well, she tries. Her sister Gail picks him up, and Dr. Yap is intrigued. On the ride home, Bob – still loopy from the drugs – starts making passes at Gail. Talk about a crazy triangle. Will Dr. Yap’s invitation to ski at his timeshare be the solution, or will it make matters worse?

Meanwhile, Louise and Gene fight for control of a jawbreaker.


About the Burger– This cheddar cheeseburger was topped with sauteed onions, avocado slices, and brown mustard and served on rye bread.

For some reason, this burger was hard for me to assemble. Maybe I was just rushing things too fast, but nothing seemed to go right: the avocado was too hard, the onions burned, I grabbed the wrong rye bread from the cabinet (I’d purchased real German bakery rye bread and instead grabbed the store brand . . . sigh). I just felt bad about this one.

The Response

Krystal liked this burger. She’s not normally a fan of rye bread, but liked this.

It’s a good burger. It’s not great, but it’s not bad either. It’d probably taste better with better bread.

Well, that’s on me.

I liked the burger; it tasted much better than it looked. I also agree: it’d have tasted much better with the real rye bread, and in my opinion could have used a higher grade of brown mustard.

Overall, we gave this burger

3 Stars

three stars

we may revisit this burger with better ingredients

Come back next week, when we’ll try the “If Looks Could Kale” Burger!

  1. This one had extra mature cheddar cheese. It was good, but let down by the bread, and the burnt onions couldn’t have helped either. I’ve never used avocado before (my wife has) and I had a devil of a time slicing it and getting it out of the skin. Do you have any suggestions?


  2. Oh yumm….old sharp cheddar is my favourite. If you are asking for general suggestions, this would be very nice with toasted bread.

    If you mean vis-à-vis the avocado–it has to be really dark to be ripe and ready to let go of the skin. It’s tricky I know. Sometimes I let it ripen and it’s no good inside. But green skin, the avocado will never let go and it won’t taste good.

    Slice around it lengthwise and twist and you’ll be able to separate the halves. With a big spoon you can get between avocado and skin to remove it in once piece

        1. It helps in this case that we’re following a cookbook with the basic steps, but it’s not exactly a walkthrough, either. If anything, Krystal says at least now I can make a nearly perfect hamburger!
