The menu has great gluten free options when you order from the iPad, as you can check each option to see if it’s gluten free. They also have a dedicated fryer for gluten free French fries! I’ve been 3-5 times and had a reaction only one of those times. The best trick I’ve learned is prior to ordering on the iPad, tell a waiter or waitress about your allergy in order to ensure they keep it free from cross-contamination. There is a feature that ONLY an employee can enter on the iPad to note a customer’s allergies. Great fries and great gluten free bun for your burger.
I used to go here all of the time, and when it was fairly new they were very careful with cross-contamination. After going this weekend, I became extremely sick within 10 minutes of eating their food. I have never been glutened so bad in my entire life. Servers here do not care about your food
Delicious burgers with gluten free buns and fries! They take precautions to prevent cross contamination and they even have a dedicated fryer for gluten free french fries! They ran out of gf sweet potato fries, but subbed regular gf fries, which were yummy. Will be eating here again!
NOT CELIAC FRIENDLY • the menu is very appealing, you can check which products add to your meal that are gf, and that's great. But the problem is the CROSS-CONTAMINATION. I've got glutened very bad, 4 days of stomach pain and other stuff.
I thought I would love stacked after reading the reviews but boy was I wrong. I got glutened big time. I feel like I did before I was diagnosed with celiacs(brain fog, muscle aches, bloating, tummy ache, digestive issues, emotional). This isn't a fun way to end a vacation and fly home feeling this this.
Great selections and they always alert the kitchen before sending our food off and double check to make sure everything is gluten free. Great place to take kids as well. I've eaten here over 5 times and I have never gotten sick and neither have my three boys who also have Celiac Disease.
Best and safest meal of my trip. They really get it! Apparently CEO of the company had a daughter with Celiac. Servers were very aware of protocols. You can order from iPad and it shows you everything that is gluten free. They have dedicated fryer for gluten free fries! Great burger. Hubby even lived the gfree bun on grilled chicken sandwich.
Pros: The atmosphere was wonderful, ordering through an iPad located at every table took the stress out of making sure every ingredient is GF. Cons: The hamburger buns were dry & I've had better gf pizza. The worst part is being bed bound for 2 days so far due to being glutened. I felt off while walking around the mall it's located in & had the worst headache/body ache/stomach in a knot/nausea/heartburn/nerve pain, etc the next day. There went my Saturday & Sunday. I still do believe the restaurant is celiac friendly to an extent, the staff didn't look at me as if I had 3 heads when I asked about gf. Unless it's cooked in a strict gf kitchen by myself, there's always a chance for cc, this I understand.
Fantastic gluten-free food! I tried this place while traveling in San Diego, what a gem. I ordered a stack my own pizza where there's an incredible list of ingredients to choose from and the wait staff was not only knowledgeable about keeping GF safe, they were exceptional at service. This was the best gf pizza I've had since being diagnosed celiac's. I ordered a pulled pork pizza with bbq sauce, pineapple, and freshly grated parmesan. Oh so tasty, and no side effects. I'd highly recommend to any gf diner!!!
I told the waitress I have a gluten allergy. The manager came out to our table and told me they would take extra precautions with preparing my meal. I did a build-your-own pizza which was delicious. I definitely recommend this as a celiac friendly restaurant!
fantastic food. knowledgeable servers. easy to find out which items are safe. My server had celiac. best cookies I've had since being diagnosed. gf mac is made from quinoa. I wish there were more dairy free options, as I'm sensitive to that too. bit that's my only tiny issue.
We were visiting San Diego and have a six year old that has Celiac. We don't eat out often, as we don't want to deal with what might happen if we aren't too careful. We wanted to eat out instead of cooking in at least one night on our trip. I checked on my app and found Stacked to be a good option to try at sometime during our stay. We incorporated it into our Sea World day, since it was very close. Each table has its own iPad to order with or you can do it the traditional way via your server. Our server was very pleasant and helpful. The server explained the gluten free symbology embedded in the iPad menu, which was very easy to use. Each option that is gluten free has a symbol tied to it to denote it as such. Your overall meal will have that symbol, until you choose a gluten filled option which will then cause it to go away. They had many gluten free options on the menu pasta, pizza crust, buns, cookies for a few of them. My daughter was a typical kid and wanted a cheese pizza. They only have one size gluten free crust, but that wasn't an issue since both our kids could share the pizza. Me and my wife decided to go with a pizza as well and build our own gluten free one, which was very easy to accomplish with the gluten free symbols on the iPad menu. We got the kids pizza ordered first so of course it was the first meal to arrive, which my daughter was eager to try. She gave it two thumbs up after the first bite. Our pizza arrived shortly after, which we agreed with our daughter as being delicious. When dessert time came around, they have a gluten free chocolate chip cookie, which my daughter was able to enjoy as an ice cream sandwich with some vanilla ice cream. She thoroughly enjoyed it, as it was nice to be able to have dessert out as well. I would highly recommend this place for someone looking to have a good night with some great food.
Several GF options. Very customizable! I tried the gluten free mac and cheese and my husband got the gluten free bun with pulled pork and gluten free fries. It was all really good! They had a gluten free ice cream cookie sandwich you could get but we ended up too full. I would recommend having a separate gluten free menu though so it's easier to figure out options.
STACKED at Fashion Valley Mall is my favorite gluten free burger place! Not only do I feel Celiac safe eating here, they are one of the few restaurants in San Diego that is GIG trained. The staff always goes above and beyond to make sure you are taken care of and feel safe about eating your gluten free food. They don't just have amazing burgers and fries, you can also build your own gluten free loaded mac&cheese bowls! Everything from bacon, chicken, pulled pork, and many of other meat selections, or extra layers of different cheeses, and even lots of veggies of your choice can be added to your mac&cheese bowl.
Awesome. Perfect, just perfect! Everyone loved what they ordered. Very GF friendly! You use their iPad to customize your order subbing in GF bun/pizza crust/pasta/fries. Dedicated GF fryer. They really understand GF protocol. Each individual ingredient tells you GF or not. So much variety is rarely found in GF options. We had 2 amazing GF burgers and a GF pizza. We will be back tomorrow to try GF Mac-n-chz (and they have Daya dairy free cheese for the dairy free as well). My whole family, including the normal digesting people., had excellent meals. Kudos to a job well done.
There are lots of gluten-free items here, and they are clearly marked. I spoke to a manager who said to let them know when you have celiac or allergies, and the manager will personally oversee your meal. I suppose we should always be doing that, but I had been a little too trusting and pne time I found a gluten ingredient in my salad. It's a good restaurant, but don't necessarily rely on the ordering system alone - ask for a manager.
Super yummy comfort food! The menu on the iPad tells you when something you added to your meal contains gluten. As long as the wheat free emblem is on the screen, you should be safe. The staff was very good about identifying which meal was gluten free.
loved the concept and food was very good. tons of GF options. only reason it is 4 not 5 ★ is due to them not having separate plate to distinguish, which led to me being served a non-GF version of a dish by accident. Also, some parts of the menu contradicted others as to what was GF, but still, cool restaurant. Would egg eat here again, but verify with person delivering that each GF item is actually that.
They've got a self order system via iPads tableside that allows you to pick ingredients. Easy indicators when your food is totally GF. Doesn't list grilled onions as GF since they're at risk for cross contamination (grilled on the same surface as other foods). Very knowledge staff, with a dedicated fryer to boot!
LOVED IT! Pear cider on tap, gluten-free fries and buns, and great sauces! So many choices! I got a burger, large fry, and cider plus my husband got a beer and our total was $20. I didn't think that was bad at all and the food was great!! The staff really knows their stuff too.
This place is amazing! Came here for breakfast and made my own stacked pancakes. I had chocolate chip pancakes with nutella and strawberries. I loved it (and didn’t get sick) so I came back the next day to try the mac and cheese. On Mondays they do a 50% off every mac and cheese. It was alright. Wouldn’t try the mac and cheese again but definitely will get the pancakes when I return.
Happy to say I ALSO ate their gluten free pancakes and wow...I actually didn’t feel tired after!(didn’t get “glutened”). I could tell my eggs were cooked in a separate area. I’m super pleased and will be returning many times. Great service too; they actually enjoy working there as opposed to 99% of all servers everywhere else!
The best gf pancakes I've ever had! They even came out with a sign on my plate saying my meal was gf. And so many choices!!!!! The staff is very knowledgeable and friendly. They use a separate griddle for gf. I can't wait to come back!
I really like Stacked. Eaten at a Stacked 4-5 times while traveling and have never had cross contamination issues. The staff at all the locations have been helpful, well trained on GF, and food is good. Dedicated fryer which is always a plus as I love and miss french fries. They make it super easy to make sure each item and component is GF or DF which is so helpful. Love it!
I will begin by saying that the food is incredible! You all know how hard it is to find a reliable gluten-friendly place to eat, especially for breakfast... (I have only been for breakfast since I am usually in the area mornings) The staff is very knowledgeable about the seriousness of cross contamination and all things Celiac. I was informed that they have a separate prep station for (she was incredible!) GF pancakes/meals and Christina, our server , even went the extra mile to make sure the butter was scooped from a GF tub! PANCAKES! PANCAKES! PANCAKES! They have GF hamburger buns (which I used as a stand-in for toast/english muffin), GF wraps for Lunch/Dinner, and a fantastic bar/drink menu! They stand behind the quality of their restaurant and I have much respect for manager Martin Orozco who ensured we had the most pleasant experience possible! Just let them know about your allergy/condition and they will do all they can to make your meal safe!
I’ve eaten here twice and each time has been great! I’ve had their pizza and burger, both of which were delicious. Their tablet menu is easy to navigate and tells you everything that is or isn’t gluten free very clearly. I also cannot eat dairy and the waitress/waiter has always been willing to check on dressings or other things for me. I highly recommend this place!
Amazing GF pizza! Son has celiac and he very much enjoyed it. We went there based on people’s comments since he is asymptomatic. Hopefully there wasn’t any cross contamination issues. I followed some advice and didn’t get any of the dipping sauces.
I just got the Mac and cheese and found it to be okay. I didn’t get sick or anything but I guess I’m taking a star off because it was filled with red onions, and I don’t know if they all are or if they put it in by accident since you can customize the bowls. It was good though other than being way too oniony
We love stacked. Had a long run of no problem. Sad to say I got very sick from a GF pizza. Thought it was adding meat to the pizza. Gave them another try. Made a point to tell the server I had celiac and asked for them to let the kitchen know, which she did. Then when my pizza came out the person delivering it to the table was carrying another non-gf pizza in the same hand and the two pizzas were touching. The rest of my party had to wait for them to remake my pizza.
Me sister and I ate at Stacked on Sunday. I requested everything gluten free. I was leery of ordering some of the sauces/dips, but did so anyway because the waitress assured me that they were all labeled if they were gluten free. i was most worried about the honey mustard because almost all mustard contains some form of wheat. well, the food was wonderful, but i had a reaction and was in the bathroom several times during the meal. Thank goodness there were places nearby with restrooms because we did not make it more than 2 blocks away from Stacked before i had to make an emergency stop and visit the restroom again. i may eat at Staked again, but will refrain from any dressings/sauces. I ask that management please research your sauces/dressings and also the fries for any cross contamination. if you use the same oil that you use for non-gluten free items such as your sweet potato fries or onion rings, there will be issues there.
This place is great - order on an iPad and everything is clearly labeled. A little gluten free symbol appears next to your order to let you know if everything you're ordering is gluten free. They even have a separate menu entry for gluten free fries and they come out with a little "gluten free" flag. I'll definitely return - they even have a gluten free veggie burger patty which was very good.
SOOOO GOOD!!! I highly recommend you eat here. Most of the menu can be done gluten-free! I love that you can create your own meals like burgers, mac and cheese, salads, and pizza or choose from their creations. We had the cheese fries and stack your own Mac and it was AMAZING!!! So much flavour! Definitely worth a visit!
Had happy hour sliders lettuce wrapped with gluten free fries. Had BBQ sauce and ketchup with no issues. Everyone in my party was satisfied including me. They have several gluten free items and their drinks have limited ingredients. Will be visiting again. Staff very knowledgeable and helpful. Let staff know you have a true allergy. JUST received an email from Co-Ceo, makes me love this restaurant even more that they care about you.
Our server (Matt) was VERY well trained about celiac disease and took special care of my son and I. The manager even came over to verify our order and said she was going back to the kitchen the be sure it was all handled properly. Great food. Great experience. Felt safe eating here! Did not get sick. Highly recommend! Dedicated food prep area and fryer (yay!!) My son had a burger and I had a pizza.
Went here in the past without getting sick. But today I went and explained that I had celiac about cross contamination, the manager assured me that they cook things separately and the fries are made in separate fryer. I tested my chicken sandwich with my Nima sensor (gluten tester) and the chicken sandwich tested positive for gluten. The fries were also tested and did not have gluten. The chef told me he must not have cleaned the grill well. The manager was not really apologetic but the waiter was supper sorry and nice about it.
Superb service and food for any restaurant let alone a restaurant specializing in burgers. They take GF seriously. The server brought out my food wearing gloves! You stack your own burger or salad with your choice of ingredients on a tablet at your table. GF Bun was excellent. French frys in a dedicated fryer! Rejoice. Highly recommend.
We have eaten here five times without getting sick. We usually make our own hamburger sans the bun as we are allergic to eggs so can't eat the gf bun but burger is delicious anyways. The gf mac and cheese is the best I've ever had. I highly recommend it. They know how to cook the gf pasta to perfection. We love this place.
The handling of gluten free food here is quite meticulous. The food itself is somewhat tasteless. I have given this restaurant 2 stars because of its food proportions. I ordered a grilled cheese sandwich with 2 kinds of cheese and tomatoes, asked the server to enter it into their iPad so that I would get it right, and emphasized that I did not want a hamburger bun with just one or 2 pieces of cheese, as it would taste like bread. I offered to pay more to get what I wanted but she assured me it would have plenty of cheese. Sure enough, I received tasteless tomato and - 2 pieces of cheese. When I politely sent it back, they added one more piece. I ate the bread sandwich, but I will not return. So disappointed!
I have celiac disease (very sensitive!!) The guy at the bar was very helpful to show me how to make sure my meal was GF on the ordering device and then made sure to verbally tell the kitchen it's an allergy when I submitted my order. It's almost 24 hours later and I am not sick. Plus my burger was amazing, I inhaled it. They don't have any GF beer (I was told they stopped carrying it because almost no one ever ordered it) but they had a GF cider that was delicious. I'm definitely going back. Celiac friendly!!
So good! Had the pulled pork sandwich on gluten free bread and French Fries. And a cookie for dessert. It's so nice how they have the tablets on the table to order and customize your food. I love that it tells you as you add or remove items if your meal is gluten free. My father-in-law had a non gluten free burrito and loved it.
A variety of gluten-free options. I am thrilled about French fries prepared in a drier that is exclusively for gluten- free diners. Order by I-Pad allowing you to check out which ingredients are certified gluten free. I have never been disappointed.
This place is fantastic! My kids and I are all gluten free. They made the kid's burgers with GF buns and have a dedicated fryer for fries. Everything on the menu indicates whether it has gluten and they carry Red Bridge GF beer. Servers are super helpful. Definitely going back!
If they are busy their gluten free knowledge can go out the window. Just keep reminding them you are GF. I have got glutened on busy nights.
This place is great - many gf options including pizza and buns for sandwiches. You order on an iPad and it will tell you which items are gluten free. Also some dairy free options like daiya cheese. Wish they had some gf/df desserts like sorbet or coconut milk ice cream but they do have gf desserts. We would go back in a heartbeat.
