PELHAM— A new restaurant in Pelham is making a name for its burgers, but this fast-casual kitchen is serving up more than sandwiches.
Stack’d Burger Kitchen, located at 202 Bowling Lane next to Game Zone Laser Tag, offers a variety of burgers, sandwiches, wraps, salads and more for guests to savor.
“Everything is made from scratch,” said owner Tony Oddo. “Everything is made from a recipe, so to speak. We tried to be a little bit different than what’s out there.”
The 13-year resident of Pelham, has spent years eating at all the restaurants along Cahaba Valley Road and U.S. 31. He said he noticed a void in restaurants, which inspired him to start his own.
The location had been empty for a while, so Oddo took over the building. He said the kitchen was already in the space, but they did spend some time determining the concept and design of the restaurant.
“I know that there is a way to do a better burger, a better sandwich (and) all of it, under one roof here,” he said. “We are just trying to let people know where we are.”
Oddo and his kitchen manager, who ran the kitchen of a restaurant at The Summit for about seven years, designed everything on the menu. All the burgers are made from 100 percent Black Angus beef that is seasoned and ground in house.
He said the Stack’d Burger, Barbecue Stack’d Burger, Blue Cheese Stack’d Burger and the Stack’d Mushroom Burger are the best sellers. Each also has a special twist.
Every ingredient is well thought out by Oddo, and his kitchen team created every sandwich on the menu. The barbeque burger features a special sweet and spicy bacon and homemade sauce.
The Stack’d Burger features a special sauce, the blue cheese burger features a homemade aioli and the mushroom burger has a homemade mayonnaise.
“The Stack’d Burger is the one that really caught on really well to start and then we had these other ones as well,” Oddo said. “It’s hard to pick a favorite.”
They also serve a Philly cheese, chicken salad, dogs, wraps, salads, quesadillas and more. Oddo said the new Mediterranean wrap is a favorite with grilled chicken, a marinated cucumber salad, spring mix and feta cheese.
Stack’d Burger Kitchen is continuing to grow and add new items to the menu to cater to the wants of customers, and Oddo said they have received many positive reviews on social media.
The restaurant is open Monday through Saturday from 11 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. For more information, visit Facebook.com/stackdburgerkitchen or call 769-6108.
“We’re happy. We love it here. We like the area,” Oddo said. “We just want to be the place that people think about when they go out with their family because we really put a lot into the food.”
