"What makes Stacks so popular? The answer lies in a winning formula where breakfast foods meet California style and where hearty portions are served up at reasonable prices..... The service on both visits was prompt, friendly and professional. Stacks is clearly a well-oiled machine."

Best All-American Restaurant -

"Stacks is practically a Stanford tradition. Which also means it’s crowded…But you should definitely wait because Stacks is crazy tasty.  The menu is huge...Sometimes I’m paralyzed by the sheer number of choices…large groups are pretty easily accommodated…and the menu’s wide enough to accommodate all dietary requirements."

-The Stanford Daily

"With a menu so chock-full of all-American breakfasts -- not to mention great lunches -- it's small wonder that the eatery was voted Best All-American Restaurant."

-Silicon Valley Community Newspapers

"The menu is extensive, everything from pancakes to salads to whatever you want. Pancakes are excellent!"

"Well worth the wait! The pancakes were huge and perfectly cooked. Also recommend the omelets and bowl of fresh fruit. Go hungry because the portions are large."



“Man this place has the best pancakes this side of the Mississippi River…the food is great, the plates are huge and the staff is more than happy to serve you.”

-Joe M. on


“If there is a line, don’t let it scare you because they are pretty quick with turning tables around. 
The food is always great.  Kudos.”

“Mario was the bomb (do people still say that? HA!). The service was off the hook (is that better?). The other waiters and waitresses were also good… I was so full after eating half of my sandwich that I had to pack the other half up along with some of the hash browns.”

-Nina T. on Yelp


“Don’t ever think that you can eat more than one entrée.  I made that mistake when I thought their waffle was too small…and decided that I needed a hot links omelet as well.  Nope…neeeever made it to the omelet.  Was too busy savoring my waffle.”
