I'm not much of a breakfast person and very picky on restaurants since I don't like eggs. Even though this place was busy, they tried hard to seat us right away. The orange juice was fresh squeezed and so delicious not to mention all the fresh fruit they use for both their pancakes and waffles. The bacon was wonderful as well so we ate their twice on our trip at the Burlingame location.
Busy but good food. Stacks certainly isn't cheap and can sometimes be a long wait on weekend mornings (thank god for the free coffee outside), but once seated I've never had a bad experience. Hefty portions make up for the pricetag, and the scrambles and pancakes will last you the rest of the day. Service is reliable and alert- a good bet when you need a nicer breakfast place
Great Breakfast for Early Risers..... I have been to Stacks in Burlingame several times in the past and I had always enjoyed the food and atmosphere, but the wait bothered me. I went there this weekend with my wife and one year old son and I am completely sold now! The wait was non existent at 8am on Sunday morning. We were seated promptly and the service was outstanding. My son was also treated great as they promptly brought out some oatmeal for him to munch on as we decided what to eat. Our food was great and overall I was extremely satisfied!
not bad, but definitely overrated. i read reviews on several sites, and fail to understand the hoopla surrounding Stacks. first of all, portion size - practically every review that gave a high rating seems to rave about the large portions - is that a sign of quality? i have been there a few times, and the food was OK, but the wait was not worth it. pancakes were standard American ones, waffles were actually pretty good, but i had a crab/seafood fritatta once which didn't have much crab, was a bit rubbery (probably due to the crowds), and came with something they called Hollandaise sauce - I will bet anything that was sauce from a mix, since it tasted of flour. at least a 30-minute wait, and the service can be trying if you arrive on an empty stomach.
best bfast on the penninsula. kid friendly. I love to come here with my family on the weekend. We put our name down, go for a stroll on the ave and then come back and have a great meal. They also have coffee outside for you while you wait. The food is awesome. You cannot find a better breakfast on the penninsula. We've been coming here for years. Try the banana germ pancakes. We also love the bisquits & gravy, the mexican omelette and anything with their bacon. Food is served hot. Service is always great and fast. All the servers are very attentive & good with our two kids. The lady at the front door is really nice. Seems like everyone is having fun at work. We always have a great time at Stacks.
My family's favorite sunday breakfast..
We come here and we're treated with respect and dignity. (Not like that other place across the street.) The food comes hot and yummy. The staff is friendly. A lot of homey kind of food.
They have a lot of crab options and I like that.. a little pizaze in the morning. I like the crab omlette.
VERY delicious!. I heard rave reviews about Stacks and as big breakfast lover, I had to try it out myself. I went on a Sunday afternoon and the wait was about 30 minutes. It's in a great location cause during your waiting time you can go shopping at nearby stores. Also they have self-serve complimentary coffee for people waiting. The waffles were to die for! Everything was so delicious and well worth its price which is similar to IHOP's but the food at Stacks are so much better and a lot fresher esp the fruits! After eating, I understood why the wait because everyone wants to indulge and savor their food! Must try!! So worth the wait!
The best place for Breakfast IMO. I have been here MANY times and the wait of 20 Minutes.... LOL is on the weekends..... Goin there on a Saturday/Sunday is not the best time to go to any Stacks location. I have seen the hordes of lines and ppl waiting to go in. If Stacks wasn't good then there wouldn't be hordes of ppl waiting to get in. When I have had the urge for Apple Waffles or Bacon Scrambles (which are my 2 personal faves there) I have had nooooo problems getting in and promptly seated 99% of the time. The service is 9 out of 10 good and the prices and selections are good. Best time to go there is any mornings M-F
Great breakfast!. Just went there at about 8:45 on Saturday and waited about 15-20 min. Well worth the wait! The pancakes were huge and perfectly cooked. Also recommend the omelets and bowl of fresh fruit. Go hungry becuase the portions are large.
great breakfast!. if you are not in a hurry, stacks is well worth the wait! they offer complimentary coffee outside, the inside is very cozy and if you look around at the customers, everyone is enjoying themselves! well be bringing my mom up from so cal just to eat here!
