Well before I could explain further I found my answer from the amazing Ashley who not only knew the answer but could interpret my terrible explanation. (I wish I could blame it on English as a second language, but it's not)
Anyway here was my problem and solution for anyone who might have this situation.
I have a customer who comes in to my restaurant and wants to order a random item from my menu.
The item is randomly ordered and stored as a local variable.
What I was having a problem with was using that "string" to access another variable that takes care of prices for each item. This is where Ashley saved the day.
I set up a dictionary with each item as a "key" with the price as the value.
Using the "add to value" I can use "Dictionary.Get(Test_customer.Order)" as my value.
This works really well as I can easily update values for each item.
