I like Diner Dash the most. I like how Sally's Salon has cartoonish (slightly girly) artwork/graphics, but I think Diner Dash is a little more challenging and fun.

I definitely agree that SS is better than DD.
After first five minutes of playing DD, I got pissed off by those tiny objects in the game.
- especially that small zone with coffee pot, trash can and top-right corner table
I'm in a hurry to touch the right spot, but I just can't do it,
probably because I have the fingertips of a grown up - maybe kids with smaller fingertips can do better.

Some might say that being able to touch the right spot is skill, but I'd say that making a game like that is poor design and lack of consideration.
I've deleted the game after couple of days, so I don't know if they changed that with an update or not.

SS was much easier to play, having larger objects and easier goals for each stage.
As far as I am concerned, SS is much better mainly due to user friendly interface.
Easy goals for each stage (and overly patient customers) makes it more enjoyable - but less challenging.

I think Crazy Hotdogs is a completely different type of game.
DD and SS are mainly concerned with overall management of a shop, how to effectively put customers through chains of events, whereas CH deals with the food (hotdogs) and customers on a more personal basis.
You get to see customers face-to-face as they get angry over burnt hotdogs
Customers in CH seems to be much more alive than those in DD or SS, not just the voice inside the game, but also the different types of characteristics that you can actually see.
Other than that, there isn't all that much to talk about the game, but I there's somehing in the game that makes me continue to play the game.
I think it's worth trying out.

What I'm really looking forward to is a game with the challenges of Diner Dash, user friendly interface of Sally's Salon and the customers of Crazy Hotdogs.

Then there's also Chocolate shop Frenzy and Fast Food Nation to consider.
