How to Play
Rare burgers should be cooked until the timer is in the blue zone. Medium burgers should be cooked until the timer is in the yellow zone, and well-done burgers should be cooked until the timer is in the red zone. Try to cook your burgers evenly, and flip a burger when it's halfway cooked!
Drag a top bun onto a burger to put it on a tray and get ready for serving. Drag the customer’s ticket onto the stand on the tray to finish the order! You lose points if you have the wrong toppings or place then in the wrong order. Make sure you use burger patties that are cooked as they wanted! Don’t serve a rare burger if they wanted it well done!
You can remove the burger at any time within the correct color area. Don’t worry about removing a medium burger as soon as it hits the yellow area, you have some wiggle room in case you’re trying to cook it evenly.
When you take a burger patty off the grill, it will start to cool off. If a burger patty is getting cold when you serve the sandwich, you’ll get a lower score. Purchase a Heat Lamp from the Upgrade Shop to keep patties warm. Or just throw cold patties back on the grill for a few seconds!
Want to set it and forget it? Buy Cooking Timers in the Upgrade Shop for each color-coded time. Drag a timer onto a burger patty on the grill, and it will set off an alarm when it needs to be flipped and removed.
Plan ahead: You may want to start your day by starting 5 or 6 burger patties on the grill. Customers won’t have to wait as long (and will give you a better score) if the burger patties are cooked and ready – though be careful about them cooling off!
Here’s another way to plan ahead: Cook some burger patties until they’re almost finished, and then remove them from the grill. When a customer places an order, throw one of those almost-done patties back on the grill to warm it up and finish cooking. They’ll never know the difference!
If your stack of burgers is filling up with a bunch of mistakes and over-cooked patties, you can throw them in the garbage – drag them to trash chute in the top left of the Grill Station.
Make sure you place the toppings on the burger in the right order – these customers are picky! If things are out of order, you’ll lose some points.
Make sure you use the correct burger patties when building the sandwich. If they ordered a medium burger and you use a well-done patty instead, you’ll also lose some points.
Nobody likes a sloppy sandwich. Try to keep everything centered on the burger when you’re adding toppings and sauces. If you have lettuce and tomato hanging off the edges of the burger, you’ll get a lower score.
If you mess up while placing toppings on a sandwich, you can drag toppings back off of a burger to try again. Once you put that top bun on, you can’t rearrange it anymore! You also can’t remove sauces once you add them to a sandwich, or the toppings beneath the sauce.
Drag order tickets to the side hook to make them larger (easier to read when topping burgers). For a quick glance, you can also drag a ticket towards the bottom of the screen to zoom in.
Organize tickets however you like on the ticket line. You might want to group tickets by doneness, or by whether they’re already cooking, or organizing them similar to how the burgers are placed on the grill.
What happens when a "winning" $25,000 ticket gets dropped in front of random strangers? How will they react when they think no one is watching?
