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.

Bacon Signature Items at Stacked!

By Erin

Bacon! Who doesn’t love this ingredient? I love bacon and one of my favorite restaurants has devoted this entire month to everything bacon! STACKED- Food Well Built has been offering some special September Signature Items including a shake, pizza, burger, salad, and Mac’ n’ Cheese centered around this beloved ingredient. Stacked invited me to their Cerritos location to test out a few new bacon items, how could I say no to bacon? So off I went!


We started off with my favorite, the Candied Bacon. Cripsy, thick, bacon; covered in maple syrup, it just melts in your mouth, it’s a pure delight. Especially after a long day!


Of course, you need some drinks to start off your meal to go along with that Candied Bacon, right?


The Sangria is always a refreshing choice, or you can go for the season cocktail, H2O Melon Mojito. I absolutely loved the mojito! So pretty, tastes delicious and it is served up with a fresh slice of watermelon.


Be sure to be on the lookout for any other drink or food specials on the walls of Stacked. You are sure to find something that catches your eye that you won’t want to miss! As you can see, there are plenty of choices to choose from!

Ok, so on to all of the rest of the scrumptious bacon items that you are probably ready to take a peek at?

The September Signature Bacon Menu Items Include:

Southwestern BLT Salad

Southwestern BLT: Romaine lettuce with smoked Gouda cheese, grape tomatoes, sweet corn, avocado and Cherrywood candied bacon tossed with a honey chipotle dressing.  The perfect choice if you’re looking for something on the lighter side. I totally recommend getting the dressing on the side. This way you can try a couple different dressings with this one, to see which one you like the best as the chipotle dressing is a little bit on the spicy side. The salad itself is delicious. My favorite dressing to go along with this salad was the BBQ one.


Jammin’ Bacon Burger: A fresh Angus Burger patty, topped with a perfect balance of  a Sweet and Savory Bacon jam and bleu cheese. Loaded with Applewood smoked bacon, red onion, and green leaf lettuce on a brioche bun. This one was my favorite by far. I want another one right now, just looking at the picture of it again. It’s juicy, flavorful, and the special jam adds the perfect touch to create the perfect burger.


Sweet Bacon and Onion Mac: Caramelized onion and candied bacon come together  for this amazing version of Mac ‘n’Cheese. Great for sharing, but then again, you may just want to keep all of the bacon and cheesy goodness to yourself. 😉

Bacon-Cheeseburger-Pizza-StackedBacon Cheeseburger Pizza: Mozzarella cheese, sharp cheddar cheese, ground beef, red onion, Roma tomatoes, pickles, and Applewood smoked bacon. We also added on onion strings and  Asiago Cheese to this one for some added crunch and flavor. It was all baked to perfection on a hand-tossed crust. For my Gluten-Free friends, you can also get this made with a gluten-free crust. You’re welcome. 🙂

Cookie Butter Shake 'N' Bacon

Cookie Butter Shake ‘n’ Bacon: Stacked’s Signature Cookie Butter Shake with bacon pieces. Make sure you save room for dessert and end your meal off right! This is a must try! It’s the perfect blend of cookie butter and candied bacon, that will leave you and your tummy in a happy place.

You only have a few days left to make it out to STACKED to experience the unique flavor combinations with bacon as the star of the month. Bacon is one of the most popular ingredients at Stacked and the September Signature Items add a delicious craveability factor that is more than satisfying! So don’t miss it!
