Kansas City BBQ At It's Best!

Kansas City BBQ at it's best. The brisket has the appearance of thick sliced bacon and melts in your mouth. Every thing I've eaten there/from there is tasty and they ain't stingy with their portions. Enjoy!

To start an argument in Kansas City, debate the best BBQ in town. Everyone has a preference be it sauce, best type of meat, smoking technique or restaurant atmosphere. Jack Stack is mostly frequented by upper middle class Johnson County citizens and it is a clean, well maintained restaurant with good service. But the experience is quite sterile compared with...

Last month we visited Jack Stack in Martin City, Mo. The Bar B Que was great as always, but the Onion Rings were a home run. I don't know what kind of batter they use, but they were outstanding. Joe C

Any location will serve the same quality of food. My Favorite, although KC Locals will have their OWN opinions. We are serious about our Q. The beans are a meal on their own. Ribs, sliced brisket, pulled port, all amazing.

You need look no further than Jack Stack Barbecue for the best barbecue in the Kansas City Metro. The pork ribs, brisket, and sausage are divine and not to be missed. The three menu items that stand out the most are the baked beans, the grilled vegetable kebab with horseradish sauce, and the baked potato with pulled pork (a lunch... More

I have been to this restaurant probably a dozen times over the years. The food is always awesome. The prices are not too bad. Usually I leave with a doggie bag and also purchase a couple of bottles of their sauces to take home. I can only comment on the steaks as that is what I get. Strip steak is... More

If you only have a chance to eat at one bbq place in KC this is the one. We have also eaten at there downtown place. Their food quality, service, and atmosphere is top of the line. http://www.jackstackbbq.com/

We get a takeout of Jack Stack Beans for special occasions- we even used Jack Stack for our son and Daughter-in-law's wedding reception. Best beans anywhere! The rest of the menu is wonderful too.

Because it's near-impossible to account for personal taste, we always take others' restaurant reviews in particular with a grain of salt, and expect ours to be taken with a similar grain of salt. In looking at such reviews on TripAdvisor, we really just focus (at places with a healthy number of reviews posted) on the total breakdown of ratings as... More
