Best game on all BFG
I have had this game for a few years now. I have been a member on BFG since like 2008, so I've played a LOT of the games here. What I love about Restaurant Empire is that I keep coming back to it.
Anyway, in my opinion, this truly is the best game BFG offers because it is also the most unique. In every genre of games you can find a cookie cutter copy of any hit game with a few minor details changed. This game at least is truly original. I think that's why I keep coming back. It's refreshing.
I love that there is a great deal of strategy involved, from menu pricing, recipe quality, what recipes you can serve, quality of service, quality of decor, and even if your stats are perfect (i.e. service, atmosphere, food, pricing) you will still get dinged because your restaurant is so good, people are getting turned away due to lack of seating! I know this sounds like a no win situation, but think of the valuable lesson this teaches us... there is no perfect scenario and sometimes your best is as good as it gets.

If you're into mindless games you can learn in 5 minutes, this game is not for you. You won't completely learn the game in your free 1 hour trial. There is even strategy in decorating your restaurants. As the game progresses, even more components are added. Many, many different aspects to this game and games within the game. Steep learning curve, but weeks and months of entertainment here. One of the best I've ever played.

Quirky Restaurant Tycoon Game
I love tycoon games and I love cooking so this one is perfect but be ready to invest time in learning how to play. You also need to have an interest in running a restaurant business and keeping customers satisfied. The graphics are so so but there is enough variety and challenge that I have played this many times over several years. You get to furnish and decorate restaurants, pick recipes, adjust the prices, hire and fire workers and work to improve their skills. There are also cooking challenges of a sort although I found these a bit annoying.

kept me playing for the longest time, and playing a few times!
I just wish we could continue with the game after winning the last scenario instead of heading to sandbox and starting from scratch again.. meh...
challenges can be quite tough sometimes, I've had to replay some of the scenarios on easier level :P
if you enjoy running restaurants, this is the game. not so much about cooking..
the restaurant external deco is quite fixed.. internal deco you can manage yourself.
good idea to buy recipes and not spend money on "cooking tips" from customers.. build up enough money, win tournaments (save before entering, load if you lose! hehe..)
for first time ever, i managed to build up to $3million woohoo!

It's clear a lot of thought has gone into the gameplay, from designing menus to the layout of the restaurant and the staff that work there, most of what I wanted was there. It's a great game and I'd definitely recommend it to people who like management roleplays.

The best strategy game on Ever!!!
This is by far the best game I have ever played on BFG. I absolutely love it and the challenges are very good. I love the real-life simulation and the food looks very scruptuous. So far I have reached level 12 and I can't wait to see what is next. More games like this please!

This is definitely a game for a future or current entrepreneur...
This is the ultimate restaurant game. Every last detail of owning and maintaining a restaurant is covered. Don't want to spoil the details, but get ready for some hard work just like in the 'real' world.

Great Planning and Strategy
Acquiring the different recipes and scenarios take time but well worth the effort. I rate this as a great sim representation of how to manage and run a restaurant. I've actually tried some of the recipes and once you figure out the amounts, they turn out as expected... nice!

Favorite of All Time
Restaurant Empire is great! It requires patience for learning the systems but more than rewards in the end.
