Founded in mid-2011, STACKED: Food Well Built will soon be neighbors with popular The Cheesecake Factory at The Oaks. STACKED has 3 current locations at the Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance, Fashion Valley Mall in San Diego and the Los Cerritos Center in Cerritos.
The STACKED menu features popular food like burgers, pizzas, salads, and mac ‘n’ cheese. Guests can choose from signature dishes or build their own meals selecting from dozens of proteins, toppings, dips and sauces, using proprietary tableside iPad technology (or they can order from attentive servers). Also on the menu are appetizers, shakes and desserts.
Sounds like a fun concept! Ordering via iPad!
This make your own concept seems to be growing in popularity. Reminds me of one of my family's favorite local eateries; The Counter in Westlake Village.
