Restaurant Review: Stacks

Everyday as I scroll through my Facebook, so many local friends have 'liked' Stacks that it inevitably shows up as one of those wonderful 'recommended posts.'  After seeing pictures of their specials for literally the past month, Carl and I headed to Valparaiso to check this place out and we were not disappointed.

Little did we know, downtown Valpo actually had a free concert taking place, so everyone wanted to eat outside or stop into Stacks.  This caused a small wait and we were able to look around the place.  It's decorated with old stacks of books (of course), old computer monitors used in libraries, etc.; just a great decor scheme in general.  Once seated, the large list of beer, wine, and specialty cocktails is actually bound into an old book, just adding to the vibe.

Cocktails up first, I have finally found a place in Northwest Indiana that makes a mean Moscow Mule.  Yes, please.  As an added bonus, they also had hefeweizen for Carl.  Pretzel bite appetizers were a hit, but we're pretty easy to please on that front.  The true test: dinner was absolutely delicious.  We both got the specials; prosciutto wrapped shrimp with Tuscan roasted potatoes, asparagus, & pineapple-mango salsa for me, and a cheese steak burger (prime beef burger topped with sautéed green peppers, melted cheddar, sliced steak, melted provolone, onion straws, & chipotle aioli) for Carl.  Naturally I finished by following up our fabulous meals with the bourbon grilled peaches.  You guys, dinner was great.  If you haven't tried Stacks, we both definitely recommend it!
