Emily's Taste of Fame is basically Diner Dash with a few more mini-games, and a bit more back story.
The premise itself is absurb. Emily, on the way to Hollywood to host her own cooking show, had her car broken down in the middle of nowhere, and was forced to work at a diner to earn enough money to get her car fixed up so she can get to the show. But will she? (Not if you don't play well!)
The mechanics are exactly the same: the counter has some ready made items: cola, donut, coffee. There's a burger station where you can build your own burger (top and bottom buns, lettuce, meat patty, and cheese are optional. Later missions adds ice cream machine, waffle station (you have to "cook" the waffles and add the right toppings), and more. Each person comes in, orders, and you need to fetch the right stuff and serve the right people. You need to serve to-go, sit-down, and drive-thru. Speed is key! You also need to clean up the dishes!
As you earn more money, you can spend some of the money on decorating the diner, which will give you some benefits, such as the clients having more patience to wait for their stuff, bigger tips, and so on.
Frankly, this game seriously needs some tutorial for the newer minigames. The burger one is obvious, but the waffle and ice cream stations are not. The premise itself is also absurb. All in all, it felt like an also-ran.
