Amazing food! At Stacks you first wait in line and order and then find yourself a spot. Even if it seems busy, tables still seem to open up quickly! The good and drinks are great. Pancakes are a must have!!

We made a 30min drive to come and experience what we heard was the place for pancakes, and we heard right! They have a large selection of specialty pancakes, that were amazing! And the portions are large! Service was very quick! Definitely worth the drive!
