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.

    Asked for a place to sit to wait for a table as I am handicap. The manager said-- oh I am sorry you have a sore knee. I was smashed between 2 cars and can walk. Real asshole of a manager, rude, stupid, condescending. The restaurant might be busy this night but with jerks like this running your restaurant it will not always be that way. Avoid this restaurant. The I said I don't think I will stay, manager say, I think that is a good idea..

    We shared the brisket quesadilla for appetizers and hubby had the full slab of ribs with sweet potato fries while I had the chopped burger and fries. Everything was delicious. He had a Bloody Mary and I had a Long Island iced tea. Service was spectacular! Will be back again!

    The place was very loud, with a large population of flies buzzing around. We had a reservation, but were seated right at the front against the window, so half the party had sun in their eyes. Our waitress was lovely - cheerful and helpful. The donut milkshake was a big hit with the member of our party who ordered it, but other than that the food was good, not great. I probably won't go back - there are plenty of other places to try out there.

    Server was nice enough but we waited just shy of an hour for our food - not acceptable, especially mid-week. Had forgotten how slow and how loud it is. Food was ok at best - a shame, it is a nice spot but it didn't deliver.

    Recent dinner at Stack with a friend. Pleasant atmosphere with TVs on if you want to watch. Music is too loud, like in a lot of places. The service was wonderful. Emma, a summer student was delightful and attentive. The manager (or someone who seemed to be in charge) even brought us extra onions. The food however, was best described as ordinary. It was fine, but didn't satisfy the expectations we got from looking at the menu! Barbecue needs to be juicier, hotter (temperature) and have more generous portions. Not bad at all, but not memorable.

    Food was Great. Service was SLOW. Plus the booth seat was loose (and had a tear in the seat) so the seat back kept bumping me because the 2 old large men in next booth kept pushing back in their seats (why?).

    Best pulled pork in Toronto

    Best pulled pork in Toronto

    This midtown restaurant takes its inspiration from our neighbours to the south, and this is especially evident in their pulled pork sandwiches. There is a total of three pulled pork sandwiches on the menu, and they make sure to have the main barbecue regions covered. Whether it’s smothered in Carolina barbecue sauce or Lexington vinegar sauce, whichever sandwich you choose, it’s a winner.

    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.

    Best ribs in Toronto

    Best ribs in Toronto

    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.
