As you know, I am all about celebrating the season and this past weekend I had a chance to enjoy a different fall flavor. Not apples or pumpkins. I am talking about garlic! You see every month there is a new flavor to celebrate at Stacked.
We went to visit this past Sunday afternoon and the place filled up fast. It is a wonderful and unique restaurant here in Southern California. They have a handful of locations and their menu items are “built” by you.
Every month there is a new signature menu to explore and this month it is appropriately enough – garlic! Not only is garlic good for you, but it also wards off any vampires you might come across.
You can order from a traditional menu, but most people, like myself love using the iPads and swiping ingredients left and right to build your custom item.
We started with their Garlic French Fries with Garlic Aioli. Susan, my friendly server also let me know that I had the option of the regular fries or the skinny fries. I LOVE skinny fries so I went with those and they were perfect! The garlic on the fries was subtle but really came together nicely with the garlic aioli to make a wonderful starter.
Next, I opted for the Stacked House Salad with Garlic Dressing (because I was really loving the garlic theme. The generously sized salad was a blend of romaine and iceberg lettuce, red cabbage, cucumber, red onion, grape tomatoes, carrots, and croutons.
Then we ordered a couple of pizzas. I had to try the Garlic Chicken and Bacon Pizza.
This was really good. Applewood Smoked bacon and roasted garlic are combined with green onions and grape tomatoes, with a tasty garlic sauce, on a fresh crust.
I would recommend this pizza if you like garlic and bacon. You will not be disappointed!
We also tried the Cran Brie Pizza, which I have had before and is a definite fave of mine. A lovely combination of grilled chicken breast, cranberry sauce, fresh rosemary, with mozzarella, smoked gouda and brie.
They have some other garlic dishes on the menu that sound amazing, but you will want to check these out soon because these items are only available through this month.
Other menu items include:
- Garlic Parmesan Bacon Burger
- Garlic Chicken Sandwich
- Garlic Shrimp Macaroni and Cheese
- Steak Salad with Creamy Garlic Dressing
- Pumpkin Pie Shake (not garlic, but doesn’t it sound amazing?)
By the way, Stacked has a children’s menu and it is also great place to catch up on your Sunday Football too! I am hoping to get back there before the month’s end to try some of the other menu items.
Their motto is Food Well Built and you can see lots of photos on social media under the hashtag #FoodWellBuilt
