Always Great

Always a great place to have great KC Barbecue. We eat at Jack Stacks once amonth. Great food and great service every time. Wait time can be long on weekends but if you go early or late usually just 15 minutes.

I have recently retired to Tampa, but do return to KC occassionly and look forward to visiting Jack Stack's. We have beeen to all locations, but are especially fond of the Martin City Location, close to our old home. (But, service is excellent at all locations) Always, always good food. Sides are great and never skimpy. Everything is good. But... More

With the assistance of staff, we were able to select the quantity of our favorite items that turned out perfectly for our family's Father's Day Celebration!

I've lived and dined in the KC area and certainly know my BBQ. I think Jack's Stack has the leanest and best tasting beef. My favorite sandwich is the Poor Russ and they have the best coleslaw around. They should be listed as #1 in the Kansas City area for BBQ!

The burnt ends and their cold slaw are, in my opinion, the best of all the barbecue restaurants in Kansas City. All of their food is good however. Your food comes to you hot and they are relatively quick it getting it to you. The store in the Freight House district is one of my favorite spots, especially during First... More

I bought a "full slab" of ribs and was very disappointed. Although they tasted great, it wasn't a full slab. Usually a slab of ribs to go at other BBQ establishments will feed four easily however Jack Stack's slab was just enough for two. It would seem that you get the same amount of ribs but they're cut very small.... More

When I pulled up outside I was intrigued. Being a Texas boy, our BBQ places are more down home, hole in the wall places (typically the more run down, the better the BBQ!) This place was more of an upscale dining establishment. I was immediately concerned that I was going to find a menu filled with specialty plates that used... More

With all the fine, long established fantastic Kansas City BBQ places engulfing our city and surroundings, never had anything but fabulous food and the best of service at Jack's Stack. As a matter of fact when I first moved to the KC area in 1988 my first taste of Kansas City restaurant experience was at Jack's Stack in Martin City.... More
