My mother and I have gone to Stacked a couple times before this event, and we’ve never been let down, in fact, it may be one of our favorite places to eat. One thing that people find exciting when going to fast food restaurants is going through their secret menu; to find bizarre or tasty menu items you wouldn’t find on the regular menu. Stacked is the secret menu, in my opinion, because you can make anything they can fit inside of a cup or serve on a plate, hence the name; Stacked. You’ll find guilty pleasures on their menu like a cookie butter and bacon shake, or candied bacon. Both of which are phenomenal.
Stacked managed to use garlic in all of the right ways, and I’ve never loved garlic as much as I did while trying their monthly menu. For those of you who are garlic lovers, obviously this would be your haven of guilt, but even for those of you who aren’t that into it I highly recommend it. If you don’t go for the garlic menu, go for the candied bacon and their vast selection of shakes, come on people.
Let’s Get Into It!
Garlic Parmesan Fries:
Now, these are bound to be a fan favorite and will most likely be promoted to their usual menu because they’re just that great. Potatoes are best when they’re nice and crisp, and that’s exactly what these fries delivered. I liked how the herbs and seasonings were visible as I ate the french fries and that the cheese was added but not melted, perfect for those who don’t like messy finger foods. The deal was my mother, and I split everything we tried that evening, not this appetizer. Try it with their sauces.
Steak Salad with Creamy Garlic Dressing:
The steak is cooked perfectly for beginners, and the salad itself has so many elements that it’s the type of salad you can eat every day without feeling any discipline. Trying this salad is just as beneficial in regards to taste as trying any other salad, I’ve never really had salads with garlic, but this worked. Furthermore, it’s easily edible and enjoyable without dressing, which is a rarity for some people.
Garlic Parmesan Bacon Burger:
I love burgers you guys, and I think I’ve tried every burger there is to try, I’m your burger guy. Now, I’m encouraging you all to try this burger with some garlic parmesan fries, that combo is sure to send you home happy. Your first garlic parmesan bacon burger should be cooked medium rare because that’s when it’s flavor content is at it’s highest. This bad boy the most elevated burger I’ve ever had, every strip of bacon that comes out of the Stacked kitchen is perfectly crunchy, and the garlic sauce added richness to the burger that made me giddy.
Garlic Shrimp Mac:
Everything about this mac and cheese was done properly, and all of it’s ingredients came together in a harmonious way that made it fun to taste. It strongly reminded me of the mac my mom would make me during the holidays, the shrimp was succulent and buttery. The garlic itself had a presence that I found welcoming; I may need to add garlic to my mac and cheese recipe.
Garlic Chicken Bacon Pizza:
Pizza is a crowd pleaser, everyone on Planet Earth loves pizza, as you’re reading this you’ll probably want pizza. This pizza soothed my tastebuds with a variety of humble and robust flavors , exactly what you expect from a gourmet pizza. Green onions, bacon, chicken, garlic, two kinds of cheese and crunchy crust makes for an amazing pizza, pick one up.
Pumpkin Pie Shake:
The fact that this shake is so heavy makes me feel like it’s more rewarding than most shakes you’d find at local restaurants. You can easily split any of their shakes between a couple of people, but if you would rather go rogue like I did you’re free to. This tall beauty was comforting and smooth as I drank it, and I enjoyed fishing for the bits of pumpkin puree with my tongue. It’s best you pick one up soon while the pumpkin craze is still active in the fall.
Overall, going to Stacked is guaranteed a great outing with whoever you decide to bring with you. The location my mother and I went to happened to be right by the mall that is perfect after a long day of shopping. Remember guys, most of the items I mentioned will only be available this month, and I’m certain you need a pumpkin pie shake in your life. The Stacked staff treated us well and were very enthusiastic about serving us. I thoroughly enjoyed everything I tried, and I’m convinced that you all will too.
Until Next Time!
