The business idea of Stacked: Food Well Built is pretty cool. Build your own burgers, macaroni and cheese bowls, salads, and pizza any way you would like using an iPad at the table. There are only three locations in California, so we are lucky to have one here in San Diego at the Fashion Valley Mall.
M and I came in for their Happy Hour menu (minus the drinks, haha) before we picked up J from school. Our server informed us that it was happy hour and that if we wanted to order from the special menu on the iPad, we could simply order from there and she will apply the discount later.
Here's the iPad at the table. I had a fun time reading through the menu since I did not do any research before coming in. If we brought J to Stacked, he would be looking for games and probably would calling the server many times by accident.
Chips and salsa ($3.00) are always a great start. The chips were definitely homemade, as they were really thick. I appreciated that they were homemade, although... some were chips were a bit hard, others were perfect. It was just a tad inconsistent. The salsa tasted fresh, too... and it had a nice spicy kick to it.
We tried the Flying Pigs ($6.00), which are 'pork wings', in a sesame soy glaze. The pork wings were really meaty and flavorful. The meat was pretty tender and the extra sauce added even more flavor to each wing. One tip, though... eat them all first because we let a couple of them sit while we ate the other appetizers and the meat on the wing got really tough and chewy.
M and I absolutely love buffalo wings, so it was not a big surprise that we had to order Wing It! ($6.00). What we loved about these wings are that they are grilled! So, of course, we had to say that we were eating healthier, haha. The wings are grilled in a sweet chili glaze and served with a choice of ranch or blue cheese dressing. They were absolutely delicious! I loved the chili glaze.
We had a nice little happy hour meal and paid less than $20.00. I know, we did not go through the true "Stacked" experience, but that will be the next time. Those mac n' cheese dishes sound amazing!
