not bad, but definitely overrated
i read reviews on several sites, and fail to understand the hoopla surrounding Stacks. first of all, portion size - practically every review that gave a high rating seems to rave about the large portions - is that a sign of quality? i have been there a few times, and the food was OK, but the wait was not worth it. pancakes were standard American ones, waffles were actually pretty good, but i had a crab/seafood fritatta once which didn't have much crab, was a bit rubbery (probably due to the crowds), and came with something they called Hollandaise sauce - I will bet anything that was sauce from a mix, since it tasted of flour. at least a 30-minute wait, and the service can be trying if you arrive on an empty stomach.
