If you’re a fan of the SpongeBob Nickelodeon series, then you’re definitely going to enjoy the opportunity to step into Bikini Bottom and serve Krabby Patties as the lovable SpongeBob Squarepants.

It’s up to you to help the hard-working elderly woman manage her restaurant by cooking a variety of meals to satisfy customers. Apart from serving food to your customers, the adorable granny will engage in conversations with several characters and listen to their stories.
