“Breakfast”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 23, 2013

Stacks is a wonderful restaurant, nice location, and thoughtful help. However, the food comes very fast, and they seem to want you out as fast as possible. Some of the food comes cold and has to be returned. This restaurant is almost to big to be intimate and friendly. It reminds me of a buffet type set-up.

“Completely overrated.”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 9, 2013 via mobile

As a Menlo Park resident, I'm always shocked to see people waiting around for a table here. But I think I know why: the management is really nice to some of the people they know, and crappy to everyone else.

Regardless, the food isn't that great. It is the standard breakfast with no embellishment and with an undeserved price tag. You'll pay a lot of money for what tastes like bisquik pancakes. And there is also eggs (big whoop) and breads. Wow. I'm blown away, not.

I'd recommend something more reasonably priced, likes Jason's Cafe just down the street: Nice owners, good food, good price.

“They sell a lot of eggs for breakfast”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 23, 2012

The service is very good, the food (breakfast) is o.k.. Toast was cold, potatoes a little "mucky", bacon was o.k.. All in all we'd go back for breakfast just because the people and service is so good.The place was absolutely packed on a Saturday at 10:30ish.
