Our Rating: ★★★★½ :: A SATISFYING TREAT TO PLAY :: Read Our Full Review >>

Taking the best elements of every restaurant simulation game, Cook, Serve, Delicious is one of the most enjoyable and addictive games I've ever played.

What's New


-Fixed a severe error that caused the game to crash.


-Rewrote a large amount of code to prevent the glitch of certain foods being given (or in some cases, taken away) from the player when practicing or trying out foods.

-Improved memory efficency to help with memory related crashes.

-Fixed Crazy Dave's Bet 11 that would sometimes award the player a win even if they didn't achieve the proper goal.

-Added additional failsafes for unlockables not being awarded to the player.

-Fixed a glitch that would sometimes cause extra events to restart even after successfully completing them.

Apologies for the bugs, but hopefully this will take care of them all and subdue the nasty crashes. IF YOU STILL EXPERIENCE ANY CRASHING:

-Restart your iPad by pressing and holding the power button, then swiping off.
-Once your iPad restarts, try playing the game.

As always, if you have any issues please contact me at support(at)vertigogaming.net. Thanks!

"Cook, Serve, Delicious is a must have for simulation enthusiasts." -PadGadget

"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!
