This popular IHOP -style restaurant is good for families. Not a date place, not cheap, but reasonable for the big portions. The food is unexceptional but tasty. Prepare to wait on weekends.

We drove by here on the weekend a couple of times, and there were always people waiting outside. We figured it must be good, so we went on Monday AM before leaving town. They put a pot of coffee on the table; spouse loves this! We shared two different entrees for variety; both were excellent.

Nice, clean, big place for breakfast. Service was fast and friendly, food was great, I had the chicken fried steak and it was delicious. The side is their bagel which seems to be a specialty of theirs and it was also very tasty. I wlll go there again when in town.

Despite the noise and cramped seating, I never minded Stack's Restaurant. My wife liked it more than I had as I always found too much grease with the eggs and I don't like my bagel smothered with artificial liquid butter/margarine. When we arrived we were greeted as usual and immediately seated at a table. There were only about five occupied... More

I visited the restaurant for breakfast following a trip advisor recommendation. I can confirm the valuations. Not cheap but worth the money. Very tasty. Cave: You don't need lunch later that day. At least not if you want to stay in shape

Stacks provides one of the best breakfasts around. A large menu with any breakfast item you would desire; hearty portions; efficient service; delicious food. Warning: you pay for all this. It is one of the most expensive breakfast restaurants around. It is about 3 or 4 times the cost of Denny's, for example. For a special occasion or a now... More

Excellent gluten free waffles. Eggs, omlettes, etc. look good too. Usually go with a group late morning on week-days. They let us stay at the table until they close. Portions are large. The more diet conscious in the group split an entree and add a side disth. Good value for the $. Friendly staff.
