The right approach depends on the situation. If the customer is overcharged, try to find either a suitable replacement that costs around the same or the more responsible choice refund.
If the customer did not get charged for something they wanted, regardless of or not its a trick, it should always be charged and never just put in with the initial order because the store will loose money that way.

The right approach is to treat every situation as if it were an honest mistake. Ultimately the customer is always right and going the extra mile to refund them their money or replace their food will go a long way. Double checking your work quickly as you go, checking receipts, and repeating back orders to a customer are all ways that mistakes can be minimized.
