Didn't live up to its name, stack em high? I think not!

We figured with a name like that, we'd try them for breakfast our first year visiting OBX. What a mistake! The "stack" of pancakes my hubby got was so small, we ended up finding a McDonalds for breakfast sandwiches. No one ever spoke to us hardly at all, the place seemed to be the kind you go to... read more

The kids were begging us for pancakes so we stopped by for a late breakfast/early lunch. Since it was the off season there was only one other family present. The restaurant was clean, the portions large and the food overall good (for a breakfast joint). The total check was $41 for 2 adults and 3 kids which is a bargain... More

Unusual place with a friendly staff. If you have to get a large group breakfast this will work. However, you enter through a cafeteria style ordering line and the food is only OK.

This place is great. The service is quick and friendly, and the food is amazing. The location is also very convenient. I would suggest going there between 7 am and 9 am when it isn't as busy.

There is nothing special about this place. Everything they do here is to get you in and out as quickly is possible. If you want to have a leisurely breakfast go elsewhere. As other mentioned cafeteria style ordering. They keep the temperature uncomfortable so you'll want to leave as soon as your food is gone, Forget about having a refill... More

Stack 'Em High in Kill Devil Hills is a great family place for breakfast. It's been there 30-something years, family-owned. The reason is good food and over-the-top friendly service. I actually had an earnest discussion with the cashier about how I wanted my eggs, and, lo and behold, they were cooked to perfection. When we went back the next day,... More

Cafeteria style, great food and friendly staff. The thing that says it all is that most of the staff has been there for over a decade. They love their jobs and their employer. Has a kitchy feel with inspirational sayings on plaques all over the place, floor to ceiling. Can't say enough good things about this place. Ate there three... More

It is like going through a cafeteria line, but it is not. They just take your order. No fresh fruit the day we went. Pancakes were good, but eggs not cooked as requested. There must be better places for breakfast.
