Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?!
Top Critic Average
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! is as stressful and satisfying as searing the perfect sirloin.
While CSD3 retains the frenetic pace of its predecessor, there aren't enough new additions to make this an essential update. The huge library of recipes is mightily impressive and the presentation is as good as ever, so if you can handle the crushing difficulty, give your flabby fingers a work out in the back of this mobile food van.
Cook Serve Delicious 3 is a stressful, yet at times relaxing, cooking game. It is so close to being perfect that I can't wait to see what the next iteration brings
Remarkably flexible, frantic, fun and funny, Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! serves up a cooking sim that's great value for money, and entirely what you make of it. All the ingredients are there, whether you want to stick to comfort food with very little mental nourishment, or dial up your ambitions with complex culinary masterpieces that must be served to the second. Micro-management skills aside, you're given the freedom to determine how engrossing your experience is.
As a solo game, I admit this one won't endure for me as a series newbie. It's just okay, at best. But if you're a returning player or wish to experience it in co-op, there's positively good fun to be had. You can lose track of time, making all manner of tasty-looking dishes while bobbing your head to the great soundtrack.
With one of the best soundtracks for a game of the genre, Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! is an excellent example of how chaos can become relaxing when receiving a gold medal. Despite being an investment that will make you VERY hungry, it will also provide you with dozens of hours of fun, especially if you choose to play with a second person.

Cook, Serve, Delicious 3 is an excellent title. A few tweaks to the holding station mechanics could help the game feel a little more challenging, but even as it is, when you get towards the end, your fingers will be moving so fast that your brain will barely be able to keep up. And that madness is what the Cook, Serve, Delicious series is all about. If you’ve enjoyed the previous games, then Cook, Serve, Delicious 3 is a must-play. With a strange but entertaining story, new mechanics, new foods and more, it’s a delicious feast of challenging, foodie fun.
Cook, Serve, Delicious! 3?! is the sort of game that you'll keep coming back to whenever you want a fix of frantic multiplayer fun.
Cook, Serve, Delicious! is a restaurant simulation/arcade game where players are tasked to (you guessed it) cook and serve various meals to the plethora of NPCs that will come knocking. The series first saw the light of day back in 2012 with an initial release on PC via Steam, followed by mobile ports. Players had to wait five years for the first sequel, Cook, Serve, Delicious! 2, which released in 2017 once again for PC (via Steam) and also marked the series’ debut on MAC devices.
This is as good as cooking games get. There is a breakneck flow and rhythm to everything players can do in this game that makes it a very nice simulation of how the food industry works behind the scenes and how tense every movement is in a professional food truck. This has the best parts of the previous Cook, Serve, Delicious titles and the addition of the tournament is the bombastic cherry on top.
