Redwood City doesn't have a ton of sit down breakfast places but Stacks has been a favorite since the beginning of time! Go for awesome egg's benedict, plate sized pancakes and huge omelets. Service is always fast and friendly. Plus, it is frequented by locals early in the mornings so you can hear some pretty cool stories from the older... More

Pancakes are huge so be ready to share, omelettes looked fresh and warm, but kudos to the restaurant for making my food potatoes and veggies just perfect with my dietary restrictions. The service was fast and the staff very well trained. Be prepared if you have to use the washroom you need a token from the hostess and go downstairs... More

My entire family loves Stack's. I have business meetings at the Redwood City location and on the weekends eat at the Menlo Park location. The food is good and they serve lots of it!

Hearty offerings are Stacks' forte. Better be very hungry when you arrive because you will get a lot for your buck. I like the breakfast burritos and tacos as well as their ginormous pancakes. The hash browns are good, the home fries tasty. I've had sandwiches there also which come with a vinegary veggie salad and fries so a lot... More

Stacks has been around forever at this location on El Camino Real. Their breakfast is excellent, and they are very crowded on weekends. Usually the lot is full, so try for on street parking. I recommend the delicious raisin walnut pancakes and the hash browns are delicious. All the the egg dishes are generous and come with a toasted bagel... More

Went with family and our dog. We sat outside. The service and food were both very good. I definitely recommend this is a nice place to get breakfast.

Great pancakes! They have a wide variety of selections! I love their wheat germ pancakes, today I tried the blueberry wheat germ pancakes, they were nice, the coffee is lovely, they have tasty rye bread, eggs, omelets, fruit salads. They are open till 3 pm.

Stacks restaurant is mostly famous for its breakfast, and I wouldn't recommend you to go for lunch or dinner. I usually order the Texas French Toast, and it is very delicious. I usually order Hot Apple on the side. The person that took our orders was in a rush, and clearly, for some of our orders, he didn't understand what... More
