"It's not an easy game to excel at, but it's an easy game to get hooked on, and the challenge of building and running your own restaurant from front to back is going to captivate you for weeks on end...With depth to rival a strategy game and carefully controlled chaos ruling the action sequences, Cook, Serve, Delicious! is a rare release that encourages you to play until you master every nuance of gameplay. You'll have a great time doing it, and once you reach that zen-like state, your little food hut will be a sight to behold." -JayisGames.com
"4.5/5 Stars. Cook, Serve, Delicious isn’t Filet Mignon, but it is an awesome, consistently delicious meal." -Gamezebo.com
"Overall, “Cook, Serve, Delicious!” is a wonderfully addictive game that takes the best parts of Diner Dash, Hot Dog King, and Restaurant Empire and crams them all into one nice, meaty package. It will definitely test your reflexes and can be a bit nuts at times in terms of difficulty, yet it manages to keep you engaged in a way that encourages you to do better. I highly recommend it to those who enjoy time management and simulation games." -Vincent Paone, dadsgamingaddiction.com
"There's an odd appeal to this game." -Ryan Davis, Giantbomb.com
"This seems like a cool game... I just want a corndog..." -Jeff Gerstmann, Giantbomb.com
Cook, Serve, Delicious is a strategic restaurant sim, one of the few in its genre that gives the players total control over where they want to take their restaurant.
The game centers on an old, worn down restaurant in the SherriSoda Tower, which was once the heart of the building but closed down as business (and tenants) dropped to an all time low. But with the local economy rising back up and occupancy reaching its maximum, SherriSoda Tower has decided to bring back the old Cook, Serve, Delicious restaurant, and has given you complete control to bring it back to its old five star status of world class dining.
To do that, you’ll start with a few thousand dollars and thirty foods to choose from to put on your menu, as well as a host of restaurant equipment and more. Nearly everything is unlocked from the start of the game for you to purchase; this is your restaurant, and you must figure out the best strategy to get that restaurant packed with satisfied customers. Can you prove your culinary skills?
And if that weren’t enough, you’ll also have the opportunity to be cast in the Iron Cook television show, throw parties for offices in SherriSoda Tower, read virtual mail in your SherriSoda Tower Email account which ranges from game tips to crazy spam, from customers providing feedback to your restaurant to opportunities to being able to fund projects via "ClicknStart" and other big surprises!
With hours of content and tons of secrets and unlockables, Cook, Serve, Delicious will provide a big challenge for anyone who’s ready to take their crumbling, rat infested eatery to a luxurious Platinum Star Restaurant. Good luck, and be sure to visit cookservedelicious.com for more news on everything related to the game and future expansions!

One of the best TM games I've played!
I am a Time Management game junkie!!! It is SO hard to find one with a unique modus operandi these days, but CS Delicious delivers 100%. It takes quite a while to complete the game (I'm talking months) - I love this! It becomes incredibly challenging. The game allows you to choose whether to use your $$$ to buy one of 30 available dishes, upgrade your current dishes, or purchase equipment. Each dish upgrade involves a higher level of complexity when cooking the dish. On top of that, you must rotate out dishes so your menu does not become 'stale', you must choose dishes based on the daily weather (i.e. if it's raining soup sells better), and you have to monitor the overall healthiness of your menu (pizza, corn dogs & soda would result in a decrease in "daily buzz"). Plus, health inspectors, criminals, celebrities & food critics stop by on a regular basis - adding complexity to the game.
Once you progress farther in the game,you gain access to 'Extra Events' such as catering & Iron Cook challenges. These events became my favorite part of the game - and there are lots of them!
I would recommend this game to anyone, especially those who are tired of the same old TM games that copy each other's method of gameplay. It is sophisticated enough to be challenging at an adult level. I am now replaying it ALL over for a second time! DL & enjoy!
App game of my dreams
I have played all of the Delicious Emily games to death and I love them, and I'm always looking for others that can hold my attention for more than a couple hours. I have been playing Cook, Serve, Delicious for... I think a year now! It's that good!
Most gameplay gets stale and tedious after a while, but the breadth and quirky, tongue-in-cheek comedy and depth here is unparalleled for a game of this scope. It's packed with things to keep you busy and your mind engaged on how you want to run your restaurant and engage your customers. I love organizing my menu every day depending on changing circumstances and the actual cooking is so much fun!
On top of that, the developer updates it frequently and can always be depended upon to make sure it's working perfectly after platform updates. I can't wait to play whatever they come up with next! Seriously, thank you.
Best Cooking Game App
I have been wanting for a cooking game like this forever! This game was worth the $4.99. I was a little unsure purchasing it for that price because even when you buy some apps, they force you to purchase in-game credits to continue playing it. This game is not one of those apps!
The gameplay is challenging, even for a twenty-something like myself. You run your own restaurant, read your emails (which are normally tongue-in-cheek or there to help you make the best of your gameplay), cook the food by completing various swipes at the screen, and plan your menu for each day. It is great to have a game that I didn't complete in two hours.
You really get the feeling that you are running your business. For those interested, there are tons of upgrades for the food and equipment. There is a lot of food to pick from to place on your menu. The graphics are not horrible, but could be improved upon.
The only thing I would suggest a change to is the level length. The levels in the game seem rather long and if they were just a bit shorter, that would make the game even better.
You can be assured that if you like cooking time management games, that you will not be disappointed by this one.
