Example from The Deepening

  • The Burger of the Day is one of the running gags on Bob's Burgers. It refers to the various puns and word play featured as the "special" burgers in (almost) every episode of Bob's Burgers. Bob and Louise are the creative minds behind these punderful burger titles; Bob's offerings are always "family-friendly," while Louise's (when she's able to sneak them on the board) are almost always completely inappropriate. Burger of the Day specials are priced at $5.95 unless otherwise noted. The following is a list of each episode, and its corresponding burger(s) of the day.
