Created by Huntington Beach-based BJ’s Restaurants, Stacked is a newly conceived eatery that is earning national headlines by eliminating the need for menus and embracing technological advances to streamline ordering. Branded as "fast-casual-plus" dining, Stacked will provide patrons the ability to customize and design their meals on a tableside Apple IPad.
According to Nation’s Restaurant News, patrons will be able to personalize sandwiches, pizzas, burgers, salads and sausage plates, as well as desserts. Beer and wine also will be available on the "menu." After diners input their orders via the iPad, servers will deliver the meals. The restaurant also will allow customers to store menu favorites for future visits, and will offer to-go service.
The first "STACKED: Food Well Built" is stated to open in May 2011 in Del Amo Fashion Center in Torrance, CA. There are plans to open two additional locations this year, one at San Diego's own Fashion Valley Mall this summer, followed by another at Los Cerritos Center in the fall.
