Cooking Fever - Corn Dog Van

Corn Dog Van Strategy Overview

Cooking Fever's Corn Dog Van is a lot like the Fast Food Court.  You'll be serving Corn Dogs with Mustard and Ketchup.   As well as Fries, Cola and Broccoli.  Not sure why they picked Broccoli; maybe a Pickle would have went better with this type of food.  About half way through the levels, it picks up pace and customers are usually ordering 3 different items each.  Keeping up with the Donut and Fries orders is the most challenging part.  We think the developers originally planned to add optional frosting for the Donuts (see the game's description for the Corn Dog Van below). 

"Cook the most delicious corn dogs on the island.  Let your customers enjoy chocolate, strawberry and vanilla frosted donuts. Decorate your beach café and get your customers come back for more"

See the Strategy and Upgrade Tips at the bottom of this page for more insider tricks to passing levels.

Level Guide

Use this level guide to help develop your playing strategy. 

Number of Guests - This number can be an indicator of how much people will order and what they may be ordering.  After Level 15, a low number of guests might mean that they will be ordering multiple menu items or it could be an indicator that there won't be enough earnings to get 3 stars unless you hand out treats or increase the price of the popular items.  A high number of guests might be an indicator that many guests will be just ordering beverages or an add-on item instead of the main dishes.

First Orders - These are the first food items that customers will be ordering when the Level starts.  There is a slight delay before the first customer shows up, so use this information to prepare their orders in advance and get a jump start on the level.

Popular Foods - These are menu items that are ordered often during the level.  Prepare these items in advance and store them on your Tabletop or on warmers so that they are ready to hand out as soon as they are ordered.  Upgrading these items before starting the level can also increase your level earnings.

Noteworthy - This is extra information that might be helpful during the level.

Strategy and Upgrade Tips

  • Continually click on your Donut Machine throughout the level so that it is always refilling the Donuts.  Keep it fully stocked at all times and click on it even when its already full.  It doesn't refill itself automatically like the Cola Dispenser.
  • Always keep some sausages in the dough ready for frying
  • Prepare as many donuts as you can in advance
  • Don't forget to use food warmers to store cooked Corn Dogs
  • Upgrading your Cola, Sausages and Donuts gets the best kitchen upgrade price increases.  You can get 4-10 coins extra per item with these upgrades.  Otherwise, the majority of kitchen upgrades only net 1 or 2 additional coins in price.
