Fast Food Restaurant Strategy Overview
Cooking Fever's Fast Food Court is the easiest restaurant and is immediately available when you first start the game. You will be cooking Hamburgers and Hot Dogs along with Colas and French Fries. An Automatic Burger and Sausage Machine becomes available for purchase at Level 17, costs 15 gems and is available for a 72 hour period; you won't get another chance to buy it later. However, this is one of those restaurants where you shouldn't need the Automatic Burger and Sausage Machine to pass levels with 3 stars. Unless you need to increase prices to pass levels with 3 stars, save up your gems for other restaurants and don't upgrade the cooking pans beyond Upgrade 2. The Level Guide below will provide suggestions on what and when to upgrade.
Your primary goal should be to play long enough to advance to XP Level 7 (XP 12 is better), at which point the Casino will become available and you'll be able to use Coins to try to win 15 gems daily.
