Sometimes I go to restaurants with my family & I think, hmmmm…been there, done that or this is a similar concept but I like the other place better. Well at Stacked, the food is well built because YOU get to be in charge of the personalization of your food!
Stacked has four locations in the SoCal area: Thousand Oaks, Cerritos, San Diego and Torrance. I had the opportunity to visit the Thousand Oaks location, which is conveniently located inside The Oaks shopping mall. The Oaks is a quick 30 minute drive from where I live & it’s an area of Ventura County that I like to frequent. You may recall that I blogged about their recent Disney Store opening at The Oaks.
But back to Stacked…there are FIVE reasons why I love to eat at Stacked!
Easy to Order
Let’s face it, we live in an iPad/tablet world so it makes sense for a restaurant to incorporate that into their menus. You can view photos for the food, drinks, etc. This tablet let’s you be in charge of when to order, when to pay or how to customize your meal & experience!
The fact that you get to personalize your meal is a big plus for me! I hate it when waiters give me the side-eye when I want my burger (or steak) cooked well done. No I am not a medium-rare person & I don’t want my beef mooing at me when my burger is placed in front of me.
Another plus (this is more for my husband or picky eaters)…you know how there are people out there who want a BLT sandwich but hold the lettuce, give me kale instead; add turkey bacon as opposed to the piggy kind & hold the mayo? Stacked encourages you to personalize your entrée. So for my husband, he promptly removed the mushrooms from the Garlic Parmesan Bacon Burger!
There are all kinds of ways to customize your meal. At Stacked, you get to “stack” your own salads, burgers mac & cheese, pizza & even your desserts!
At the Thousand Oaks location, as well as the other three restaurants in SoCal, Stacked has designed their restaurants to welcome you. The indoor/outdoor restaurant at The Oaks has several options to choose from including: inside the restaurant, an outdoor patio and an inside “atrium.”
Monthly Signature Item
Last month at Stacked, it was all about the bacon. I had seen Instagram photos of bacon, bacon, bacon! This month is it all about garlic, which is something that I like in my food. If you want to know what the signature item is for this month, check out their website here: http://www.stacked.com/category/news/
So how does the food taste? Delicious!! I’m a big believer that when you get to personalize your food, you’ll enjoy it more. Isn’t that why we like to eat home cooking (but in reality hate to cook it)? At Stacked, you get to make your own choices in terms of cooking temp, type of ingredients, etc. thus ensuring that you will love the taste of your food!
Remember how I mentioned earlier that you can personalize your own dessert? We made our own Ice Cream Sandwich by picking out Snickerdoodle Cookies to go with Strawberry Ice Cream.
Thank you Stacked for a delicious family meal with food well built!
