    Foodies are going high tech to get their just desserts.

    The newest trend in the restaurant business is spreading to Southern California.

    Apple's iPads will be on every table when the new chain, Stacked: Food Well Built, opens its first of three SoCal restaurants in May.

    The new locations will be in Torrance, Cerritos and San Diego.

    Diners can check out the menu on iPads, then custom design and order their meals.

    The menu will included burgers, pizzas, salads and sausages with plenty of options, Nation's Restaurant News reported:

    For example, a customer might order salmon, then choose from various buns, toppings and sauces to create a sandwich, or build it over a salad created from a list of more than 35 ingredients.

    A recent study shows the new generation of diners, ages 18 to 34, favor restaurants with high-tech gear.

    The iPads in the new Stacked restaurants will have alarms that sound if they're carried out of the door. But no doubt, everyone is still welcomed to take home those low-tech doggie bags.
