Design Your Dining Experience at Stacked: Food Well Built

We dined as a guest of the venue

Stacked Huntington Beach

After reading the story that Naz wrote on the grand opening of Stacked: Food Well Built, I have been craving their food. The location is conveniently located in the heart of Huntington Beach, across the street from the Bella Terra shopping destination. After spending the day visiting the Grandparents in Huntington Beach, our family was finally able to make our way into Stacked for dinner.

We dined on a Friday evening, and the restaurant was hoppin’. There was a line that curved outside the door with families eager to try some of their delicious cuisines. We took our seat in a comfortable semi-private booth, and an employee helped to walk us through the online (iPad) ordering system.

I loved the ordering system. No more having to wait for a server who might be too busy to get a drink refill or order another dish, because guests can order all their food/drinks from the digital device at the end of the table.

The one thing that stood out to me right away about Stacked was how everything is customizable, which is extremely helpful for parents who have children with food allergies like myself.

I was able to select menu items for my son and either add/delete any ingredients seamlessly. I knew that I didn’t have to worry about any miscommunication when placing our order because I could see everything that was going into creating his dish on the screen, and that gave me such peace as a mom of a son with food allergies.

Now, let’s talk about the food.

Mudslide Milkshake

You can’t go to Stacked without trying one of their milkshakes. My older son savored every sip of the mint chip milkshake while my younger son devoured the mudslide milkshake. The mudslide was my favorite of the two and features chocolate ice cream, caramel, Oreos, chocolate, and whipped cream.

When it came to appetizers, we took the recommendations of the server, and she did not steer us wrong. We began with candied bacon that tasted like we were eating a candy bar, followed by the flying pigs. The flying pigs featured the most incredibly tender pork bites that melted in our mouth with every bite. It was paired with a sweet and spicy Asian sauce that was out of this world.

Next, we enjoyed the sweet and savory flatbread. The soft, warm flatbread came topped with mozzarella and gorgonzola cheese, caramelized onions, spring lettuce, dried cranberries, candied pecans, and a balsamic glaze. The dish tantalized my tastebuds and was my favorite dish of the evening.

Mac n Cheese Burger

Hawiian Burger

For the main dish, both my boys ordered a burger. My older son and avid mac ‘n’ cheese lover ordered the mac ‘n’ cheese burger. Inside of a brioche bun was a large juicy Angus beef patty topped with toasted parmesan breadcrumbs, mac ‘n’ cheese, applewood smoked bacon, Roma tomatoes, and red onion. He said it was one of the most unique, and delicious burgers that he has ever had. While my older son was a little creative with his culinary creation, my younger son went with the more traditional Hawaiian burger.

Pastrami Sandwich

My husband was in the mood for a sandwich and enjoyed every bite of the loaded pastrami sandwich, and I went for the lighter choice by ordering the ‘cow in the garden’ salad. On top of a bed of fresh, crisp lettuce came blu cheese, sundried tomatoes, cucumber, red onion, toasted pepitas, and flat iron steak. The salad was blended to perfection with a bleu cheese and balsamic vinaigrette dressing, and topped with crispy fried onions.

Egg in Your Face Mac n Cheese

Instead of dessert, we shared the ‘egg on your face’ stacked mac ‘n’ cheese. The mac ‘n’ cheese was one of the most delectable dishes that my taste buds have enjoyed. Inside of a small cast iron pan was cheesy mac ‘n’ cheese blended with pork andouille, pepper jack cheese, french fries, red and green peppers, and green onions. The mac ‘n’ cheese was then topped with a crispy fried egg – oh my!

Sweet and Savory Flatbread
