stack'd burger bar...

today, my good friend kat and i had lunch at the stack'd burger bar in the third ward. i've always wanted to go there {even though i don't eat burgers} because it looks so fun and eclectic. today is a gorgeous day in milwaukee so we wanted to dine outdoors and it seemed a perfect time to try out the burger bar.


the atmosphere is extremely casual, a 'seat yourself' kind of place. the patio has always been intriguing to me because it shares a sidewalk with alterra, and alterra's in milwaukee are known for their awesome outdoor patios. 

since stack'd is a trendy burger bar, their menu is slightly avant garde and uses more of a design-your-own-meal approach {view their menu here}. 


pictured above is the roman stack with chicken: crisp romaine hearts, diced tomatoes, wisconsin parmesan, home-made caeser dressing, garlic croutons and tender white meat chicken. 

the home-made caeser dressing was delicious, very light but still full of flavor. it wasn't at all garlicy like some caeser dressings tend to be, and tasted almost like a combination of italian dressing and caeser dressing. 



i ended up ordering the portabella sandwich {technically called the portabella burger}. it was a portabella mushroom cap covered with bleu cheese crumbles, jalapeno peppers, lettuce and tomato on a traditional burger bun {they had texas toast, pretzel rolls and gluten free rolls available as choices as well}. the burger was served with two fried pickles and a side of fresh fruit.

generally, i love jalapeno peppers, and i tend to order them on everything, but these jalapeno peppers were full of seeds {the part of the pepper with the 'kick'} and ultimately way too spicy for me to handle. setting aside the fact that apparently, i'm not as tough in the spicy department as i originally thought, the sandwich was delicious. every bite tasted of bleu cheese, but not too much where it was overwhelming. 


i would definitely recommend stack'd burger bar for their menu and patio. however, if you're on a time crunch during the work day, stay away. the service, albeit wonderful in all other regards, was rather slow considering the spot wasn't exactly packed.
