Excellent gluten free waffles. Eggs, omlettes, etc. look good too. Usually go with a group late morning on week-days. They let us stay at the table until they close. Portions are large. The more diet conscious in the group split an entree and add a side disth. Good value for the $. Friendly staff.

We stopped in early for breakfast before heading to SF. I had eggs Benedict, son had eggs, sausage, pancake and daughter had "the best breakfast tacos ever". We made sure to let them know. We ate at counter, and really enjoyed the visit. Nice decor, friendly staff. A+

Like the sign says “All-American Breakfast & Lunch”…that is this place for sure…open daily from 7 a.m. to 2 p.m., 2:30 p.m. on weekends…this is a locals attraction and busy, busy from open to close…parking is hard to find and frustrating, but the food cancels your anxiety. I was told that the old-tired building has been a restaurant for the... More

Stacks has lots of breakfast options, the omelettes are great, salads and sandwiches are really good and the crepes for desert are fabulous.

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
