Are these sentences grammatical and natural? ▪ He is praising it (a food item) out of proportion. I wonder if he got cash for that! It's not as tasty as it hyped up to be; moreover their behavior with customers is awfully disgusting. They give preferential treatments to their local customers;I mean they don't maintain the "first come first serve" basis. In total, if I were to give ratings I would give it one in a five scale. P.S. I don't have a motive to discourage you for tasting it. You can try it. It can be a new experience though. Who knows you might like it. After all everyone has their own tastes and preferences.

Are these sentences grammatical and natural? ▪ He is over the top in his praise for (a food item). I wonder if he got paid for that! It's not as tasty as it is hyped up to be; moreover, their behavior with customers is awfully disgusting. They give preferential treatment to their local customers. In other words, it’s not first come, first serve. In sum, if I were to give them a rating, I would give them one out of five. P.S. I don't have any reason to discourage you from going there. You can try it. It might be a new experience though. Who knows, you might like it. After all, everyone has their own tastes and preferences.

Are these sentences grammatical and natural? ▪ He’s flat out lying about how great it is. I wonder if he’s getting paid to do it! It's not as good as he’s hyping it up to be; also too, their behavior towards customers is totally awful. They give preferential treatment to their regulars; I mean they don't wait on people on a first-come-first-serve basis. Honestly, if I were to give it a rating, it’d be a one. P.S. I don't have any motive to discourage you from trying it. You can and it could be a new experience for you. Who knows, you might like it. After all, everyone has their own tastes and preferences.
I started changing things to make it sound more conversational because I thought it was a spoken conversation. If it were a review that you were writing online or something, I might have kept some of the more formal sounding language. But in an actual spoken conversation, some of the words like “moreover” and “in total” sound very stiff and robotic. Like you’re reciting some line from something like an actor. The way I wrote this is just the way I would personally convey these ideas in a spoken conversation. Things like “also, too” might seem redundant, but English speakers say and do many redundant things that sound natural.
