Vampires Beware: It’s Garlic Month at STACKED!

By Erin

It’s Garlic Month at Stacked this October! Get ready to enjoy garlic inspired Signature Menu Items all month long. From sandwiches, to burgers, mac & cheese, pizza and more, Stacked has something everyone will love for garlic month (unless you’re a vampire, then probably not)! Of course I had to go and try it out for myself. I approve. 😉


Before getting started on all the new signature items, we had to start off with an old favorite, The Candied BACON!! It’s so addicting. It’s a Stacked staple and once you’ve had them, you cannot come here and NOT order these! It’s the perfect mix of sweet and salty. Paired with some hard cider, it’s a match made in heaven. Yummmmm.


Ready to see what’s on the line-up for this month?

Garlic Shrimp Mac N Cheese

Garlic Shrimp Mac: Creamy Mac ‘N’ Cheese with shrimp, Fresh Garlic, Roasted Red Pepper, Roma Tomato and green onion, topped with Parmesan Breadcrumbs. What’s not to love about mac ‘n’ cheese? You’ll love this garlic and shrimp version that will leave you craving more.


Garlic Chicken Sandwich: Grilled Chicken Breast with Swiss Cheese, Tomato, Avocado and green leaf lettuce on a rustic French Roll with a house-made Garlic Aioli. It’s perfect if you want to indulge in something on the lighter side. I would add bacon to this. I love bacon and avocado on anything!


Steak Salad with Creamy Garlic Dressing: Flat Iron Steak, Crispy Bacon, Gouda cheese, red onion, grape tomatoes and roasted garlic on a bed or Romaine Lettuce, tossed with a Creamy Garlic Dressing. This salad is amazing! I think it’s my new favorite. My friend that was with me said the same thing. She LOVES the ‘Cow in the Garden’ salad Stacked has, but now she thinks this one takes the cake as the new favorite. So, it’s not just me that thinks this salad is perfection!


Garlic Chicken and Bacon Pizza: Hand Stretched Pizza Crust that is topped with a tasty garlic sauce, Mozzarella and Cheddar Cheeses, Roasted Chicken, Bacon, grape tomatoes and green onions. The garlic sauce really helps make this one! So much goodness stacked onto one pizza!


Garlic Parmesan Bacon Burger:  a fresh Angus Beef stacked with Applewood Smoked Bacon, roasted garlic, Parmesan Cheese, green leaf lettuce and tomato on a Brioche Bun with a creamy herb dressing. I loved this one, with all the flavor from the barcon, garlic, and parmesan cheese, it’s is sure to make your mouth happy!


Garlic Parmesan Fries:  Fries tossed with fresh garlic and topped with fresh parmesan and green onions. Great as an appetizer or to go with your burger or sandwich. I’m always a sucker for some garlic fries!


Don’t forget about Dessert! Cool off and take the edge off all that garlic with one of these special shakes! Choose from either the Pumpkin Pie Shake or the Mint Shake! The Pumpkin Pie Shake shown here is the ‘adult version’ that is called the ‘Jack-O-Lantern.’ Both were a perfect way to end our garlic filled meal. The mint shake is just minty enough, but the mint flavor is not overpowering. The Jack-O-Lantern has a lovely pumpkin spice taste with a kick.

Stacked Celebrates Summer with Basil Inspired August Signature Items

Stacked: Basil Inspired August Signature Items

By Erin

Have you been to Stacked lately? Earlier this year I introduced you to many of the delicious creations at Stacked: Food Well Built. Since then, I’ve gone back quite a few times and just had to go when they invited me to come back to check out their basil inspired signature items for August last week. You WON’T want to miss them, so be sure to check them out for yourself this week or this coming up weekend!


First on the Basil Inspired August Signature list (there are five Basil inspired items) we have the Strawberry Basil Shake! A hint of fresh basil makes this Strawberry Shake even more refreshing on these very hot and HUMID days. It totally gave off a spice flavor like that of a pumpkin spice latte, but with a strawberry twist. I would love to have this shake again. Nice, light, and refreshing, it doesn’t leave you filling stuffed.


NOT on the Basil menu, but a must have when heading to Stacked is the Candied Bacon. Thick-cut, cherrywood-smoked bacon, basted with a heavenly maple syrup and brown sugar mix that is slowly baked until carmalized to perfection. It is the ultimate combo of sweet and savory. Bacon lovers, just beware, you may have to put in two orders of this stuff as it is very addicting and hard to just have one (or two) pieces of it! 😉


Next on the Basil Inspired menu that we ordered was the Strawberry, Basil, and Feta Salad. Perfect for those wanting a lighter and healthy choice, this fresh salad features strawberries, fresh basil, toasted almonds, and feta all on top of a Spring Lettuce mix and tossed with a Cranberry Balsamic Dressing. This is a delicious way to start your meal and perfect for sharing.


The third item on our Basil Inspired adventure brings us to the Caprese Turkey Burger! Oh. My.Yum! I think this may just be my new favorite burger at Stacked to have! It consists of all of my favorite toppings to have on a burger. Talk about being STACKED with flavor! This baby comes complete with a freshly ground turkey patty with Parmesan Breadcrumbs, Carmalized Onions, Applewood Smoked Bacon, Roma Tomatoes, Avocado, Fresh Basil and Creamy Burrata all served on a Brioche Bun with Roasted Pepper Aioli. I will be going back for sure sometime this week for this one!


For the Mac ‘n’ Cheese lovers out there, you will LOVE the Tomato, Basil and Mozzarella Mac ‘n’ Cheese! This delightful treat combines Tomatoes and fresh Basil with Macaroni Noodles and a Three Cheese Blend topped with Mozzarella Cheese and Parmesan breadcrumbs, creating a fanciful feast for your taste buds. 🙂


The last stop on our Basil adventure (before dessert anyways, but that does not have basil in it!) is with the Tomato, Grilled Corn and Basil Pizza with Burrata! This specialty is Stacked with fresh pizza dough, and topped with Mozzarella Cheese, Grilled Sweet Corn, Fresh Basil, Grape Tomatoes, Red Pepper Flakes and a rich creamy Burrata. I loved this. I’ve never had all of these toppings on a pizza before, and it seemed much healthier than the typical pepperoni, sausage, and bacon toppings I might otherwise usually get. I liked the change and would get this pizza again.


That may have been the end of the Basil Inspired August Signature Items, but of course we couldn’t just end with that! We had to get a STACKED dessert to share to end things right! We went for the Peanut Butter Heaven. It was gone in a flash, it was that good.


I LOVE Basil, so I had to try everything. I’d have to say the shake and the turkey burger were my favorites, but I really loved the Mac ‘n’ Cheese too! What Stacked Basil Inspired August Signature Item is your favorite?
