Cookies go with cream, bees go with honey, mashed potatoes go with gravy and, at Stack, fresh and hearty diner food goes with upmarket dining. “I grew up helping out in my dad’s and uncle’s diner which they opened in Leaside in the 1960s,” says Stack owner, Bill Panos. “I learned that it’s all about good quality, homemade food. Then I worked in corporate restaurants so learned about great service and ambience.”
Bill took the best of both worlds and opened his smoked-meat specialty spot in 2012.
“I just think that nothing can beat the taste of smoked food. It’s my passion.” When you visit Stack, you can wash all this divinely tasty food down with a craft beer from one of nine Canadian boutique breweries.Read the story of Stack Restaurant

The food was amazing! My only complaint in that there was an option of both brisket and ribs. The place was pretty packed so it was a bit noise to be expected but the restaurant it self has a great layout. It wasn't to much of a wait for food and the server was very friendly! Overall I enjoyed my Stack experience and would definitely go back!
Excellent all around restaurant.
The staff is extremely friendly and knowledgeable and the food is top knotch. The best dining experience I've had in Toronto!
Always good. Always attentive. Great food. Quality preparation. Love the menu....best ribs in town!
This was a great outing to celebrate a colleague's birthday. Our server was especially wonderful - splitting the bill between the three of us and including our share of the birthday girl's lunch in our separate bills. So easy. Food was delish - fall-off-the-bone ribs. Accommodated our gluten-free colleague without fuss too. Just a very relaxed, friendly place with great food.
Food was tasty, as always. Friendly service.
Will definitely return.
In terms of atmosphere, we liked the looks of the restaurant but the booth seat backs are flimsy. Picture being on a plane with a toddler kicking the back of your seat and you will get the idea. Every time the person behind me moved I felt it. Food - we ordered the brisket and the Chicken with double ribs. Underwhelmed to say the least. The brisket was tender but when you slop BBQ sauce on it like a afterthought, not good. I had brisket many places and would rate it so-so. It wasn't sliced and came in irregular chunks. My wife's chicken was dry for the most part and slopped with some yellow sauce that she didn't believe the menu noted. The ribs were dry as well like they were overcooked. Everything was Stacked on top of each other with the fries squished on the bottom and made it difficult to eat. Fries were good, mashed potatoes were ok, beans were good. Certainly the meal was not worth the $100 we spent with two drinks.
Excellent service! Generous portions and amazing food quality!!
Restaurant came highly recommended from a friend, service and food lived up to the hype! Hats off to the kitchen staff!
Great service and great food. Will definetly go back again
Always the best when we go to Stack!
Our family really love Stack. Really great food. Good cobb Salad, brisket and fantastic burgers. Friendly service and quick turnaround. Will go back soon
Second time to this restaurant in two weeks - the food is great as is the staff. Will definitely go back. New favourite.
Wonderful food, great service.
Everyone was great! Our servers name was Kat and she wss on point! We celebrated my bro's 39th... The toy chest at the back was a smooth move😉 Looking forward to seeing you guys again and soon! Happy camper....Asher!
Always love it there. Great food and excellent staff!
High energy (noise) but that is to be expected at a place like this. Food (ribs, brisket, burgers, donuts) was fantastic. Great place to eat.
The food is outstanding, the atmosphere is great and our server(s) were very friendly and attentive. I've been there several times and I'll definitely be going back!
STACK is always amazing, no matter what you order. Breakfast Burger is still the best, but the platter comes in a close second.
Our second visit. We ended up ordering the same dishes (ribs, pulled-pork-topped burger) because they were so good the first time. Delicious and very reasonable. Family friendly, too.
The server tried her best, however the restaurant was way too busy for 2, maybe three servers. Bringing my grandson an order of donuts which were (delicious) and not included in his dinner was appreciated. Nice gesture.The chicken I had was gross to look at and way too well done--------a hunk of an overly large chicken breast is NOT a quarter chicken!! I have been cooking longer than Stack has been around and I know a quarter chicken when I see/eat one. The parmesan fries were not as good as usual. I don't remember them being soggy; I remember them being crisp with crisp parmesan on top. All in all, a disappointment.
Excellent as always!
Stack was a great experience and a meat lovers paradise. The service was great, attentive, friendly and with good menu advice. Next time I will invite newbies to Stack to share the experience and a platter of ribs!
It was a great place to celebrate a birthday
We are both frequent patrons of Stack because of the consistently good food and service. Thanks to Olivia and Chris, last night's staff.
Pretty plain atmosphere. Could have been a family restaurant in the 70s with that decor. Did nothing to detract from my experience so low ratings no but no impact. Very good service. Waiter was helpful but had to wait way too long for the cheque and I was with my 9 year old son. Rib flavour was outstanding. Among best I've had. They did fall off the bone which technically Means they are overlooked but who cares? Brisket very good but they should come up with a sweeter sauce. Fries and slaw excellent. My son had the S'mores shake and loved it! A real must have. Will definitely be back many many times.
Always great! Chris served us, he is very good!
You can't go wrong with Stack. Always great service in a nice casual but clean atmosphere. Great craft brews on tap and the menu has great variety. Very family friendly with a kids menu, homemade donuts for dessert and a toy treasure chest to choose from at the end.
Meal Lovers Heaven. I highly recommend the ULTIMATE PLATTER.
Stack’s BBQ is phenomenal, so it’s hard not to fill up on their Smoked Baby Back Ribs ($20/Stack Size $30), Texas Brisket ($12) and BBQ Pulled Pork ($12). But you’ve gotta save room for their epic dessert. Stack Donuts ($8) are mini doughnuts just like at The Ex, stacked in a tower, and then covered in your choice of toppings.View this Smart List
Low and slow is the preferred strategy at this popular smokehouse. Here the meaty and tender baby back ribs are double smoked in a Southern Pride barbecue pit, slathered in your choice of barbecue sauce and served with your choice of fries, slaw or smoky molasses baked beans. If you’re feeling really ravenous, supersize your rack or get your rib fix as part of the ultimate BBQ platter, which also features pulled pork, quarter chicken and smoked meat. Still have room for dessert? Try the made-to-order creamy cinnamon doughnut milkshake that blends fresh baked doughnuts with rich vanilla ice cream.View this Smart List
To cover barbecue styles from all across the Southern Beltway, you have to really know how to cook ribs. How can you tell if they're done right? Well, besides the fact that they call smoking “SMMMOKING”, they’re diehard believers in doing it low and slow. We recommend starting off with the Bang Bang shrimp, which are seasoned with sriracha and chili, and then moving on to the Jack Daniels-smoked ribs and fire grilled-quarter chicken. Think you can handle all that meat?View this Smart List
