Cooking Fever – Fast Food Restaurant Strategy Guide

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 Notes

  • As you first start this restaurant, and as soon as you have enough coins, begin upgrading your Cola Dispenser, Pans, and Tabletops to Level 2. Don’t upgrade your Pans beyond Level 2.
  • Don’t do any upgrades that require gems. 
  • The Automatic Burger and Sausage Machine becomes available at Level 17 for 15 gems and it will only be available for 72 hours.  However, you should save your gems and not purchase it unless you really need it. 
  • Beginning at Levels 15-20, you will need to start upgrading coin-only interior items to increase customer waiting time and tip time.
  • Replay levels a few times so you can quickly increase your coins and XP
  • Once you have the French Fry machine (it appears at Level 18), get in the habit of routinely clicking on the Fryer throughout a level to keep it fully stocked at all times even when its already full.  It doesn’t refill itself automatically like the Cola Dispenser.
  • Fully upgrade your Kitchen Tabletop by Level 20, but no later than Level 30.
  • Upgrade your Cola Dispenser no later than Level 10.
  • Replay levels to increase your stars, increase your XP, and earn 20,000 coins which you will need for the Bakery.
