We were looking for breakfast and had seen Stack 'em High in our travels through Kitty Hawk and Kill Devil Hills. The first one we passed on the way to find breakfast was in Kitty Hawk. Line out the door and one parking spot left. We decided to head out to the second location where we found a... read more

Yes you order at a counter and then they bring your food to you. But it is NOT a cafeteria where food is pre-cooked and sits under hot lights. It is made to order and served HOT. Owner is there managing and keeping things moving. Great idea to serve more people efficiently and well. Food was cooked as ordered and... More

This is a breakfast place people. They serve cafeteria style, it's true. But they wait on your table to bring the hot food to you and to constantly refresh your drinks. The pancakes are thin and flavorful...there is a delicious buttery flavor going on there that make their pancakes the best I have ever had. Their omelettes are fluffy and... More

This is one of the most excellent family restaurants I have ever been. The bacon is AMAZING! Pancakes, french toast, waffles, grits. Everyone cleaned their plate except the 6 year old who filled up on half a waffle. Support local economy and family owned restaurants! See the thoughtful quotes and eclectic decor. See the family history in photographs on the... More

Stack 'Em High is kind of like a cafeteria set up--you go through a line and then order your hot food at the cash register. The line has various juices, strawberries, bananas, muffins. Then you can order pancakes, omelets, french toast, standard eggs and meat...of course grits! We have been a number of times. On our last visit, I ordered... More

First, let me say that the restaurant was great and had yummy food. The concept of the restaurant and set up is different from anything I have seen. I gave it a higher rating because of this, but I personally would not go back there again. Once you enter, you stand in a busy line, help yourself to a variety... More

Food was great but hubby did not like the corned beef. Waitress says they put ketchup in it while preparing? It was a mushy nasty mess really, but everything else was pretty great.

My first visit to Stack 'em High Pancakes with friends that have visited OBX for years. It looks very casual and quaint from the outside. The waitstaff and servers are friendly so you almost feel like you're having breakfast at a friend's house, but with several dozen other people. They offer a variety of options, omelettes, meats, biscuits and of... More

Crowded and noisy. Service was slow and we had to wait for ever to get our check when we had finished. It appears that they could reduce serving sizes and concentrate more on quality of presentation and food.
