Stack’d Burgers has raised its game.

The local burger chain recently opened a rooftop dining area at its Oakland location so guests can enjoy a custom-made burger and craft beer outside with a view.

“It’s been a long time coming,” Samantha Barnes, Stack’d marketing manager, told the Tribune-Review on Thursday. “It will be open every day, weather permitting.”

The outdoor space is close to the University of Pittsburgh campus, and the big table umbrellas are visible from the sidewalk and road as people walk or drive through Oakland. There are 10 tables. Guests can enjoy daily drink specials, happy hour deals and the restaurant’s full menu from the roof.

“It was filled the first day,” Barnes said. “Summer is a great time of year for this to open, but we are especially looking forward to fall when the Pitt students come back to school.”

Owners Maurry Mendelovich and Jamie Rodgers met as students at Pitt. They also own CHiKN a few doors down. It opened in January and has a Nashville hot style menu of chicken tenders and breasts, salads, macaroni and cheese and crinkle-cut fries.

The Oakland Stack’d is one of the burger joint’s four locations. The other three — Shadyside, Pine and Hampton — have outdoor seating on patios.

“The rooftop is a wonderful place to sit outside and enjoy the weather and a drink and some food,” Barnes said. “We will take advantage of all the nice days so people can get some fresh air.”

We moderate comments. Our goal is to provide substantive commentary for a general readership. By screening submissions, we provide a space where readers can share intelligent and informed commentary that enhances the quality of our news and information.

While most comments will be posted if they are on-topic and not abusive, moderating decisions are subjective. We will make them as carefully and consistently as we can. Because of the volume of reader comments, we cannot review individual moderation decisions with readers.

We value thoughtful comments representing a range of views that make their point quickly and politely. We make an effort to protect discussions from repeated comments either by the same reader or different readers

We follow the same standards for taste as the daily newspaper. A few things we won't tolerate: personal attacks, obscenity, vulgarity, profanity (including expletives and letters followed by dashes), commercial promotion, impersonations, incoherence, proselytizing and SHOUTING. Don't include URLs to Web sites.

We do not edit comments. They are either approved or deleted. We reserve the right to edit a comment that is quoted or excerpted in an article. In this case, we may fix spelling and punctuation.

We welcome strong opinions and criticism of our work, but we don't want comments to become bogged down with discussions of our policies and we will moderate accordingly.

We appreciate it when readers and people quoted in articles or blog posts point out errors of fact or emphasis and will investigate all assertions. But these suggestions should be sent via e-mail. To avoid distracting other readers, we won't publish comments that suggest a correction. Instead, corrections will be made in a blog post or in an article.
