Good and Consistent

I don't think this is the best BBQ in KC but it consistently good. I am usually herefor lunch and most often get the Poor Russ sandwich. Fries are just OK; other sides are good but not the best around. I do love their dill pickle chips.

This site is on of three in the KC Metro. Service is good and decor is decidedly upscale than other Bar-B-Que in town. Best choice for an occasion book look elsewhere for true Que.

Every BBQ place has something exceptional. Jack Stack's, in my opinion, is the best overall value for any BBQ in KC. The burnt ends are second to none. The BBQ beans are absolutely the best I've ever eaten. Don't forget the carrot cake, even if you're full. I recommend taking a box with leftovers to save room. I personally promise... More

We've been to KC many times, but this was our first chance to try Jack Stack. We were not disappointed. The food is very good and the portions are very, very large. We each had the combo lunch (2 proteins, 2 sides) which allowed us to sample four different items: beef ribs, brisket, chicken and turkey. Any one of these... More

Just stopped for a late lunch! Pleasantly surprised with our experience. Mostly great service and food. My son didn't like his sandwich and after we told the server he didn't do anything about it. That was a little bit disappointing. Was just hoping they would offer a replacement.

Started going here 20+ years ago, and it's still as great as it was then. If you haven't tried KC style bbq, give it a try, it's really good. Multiple locations, we like the old Martin City location best. I like the burnt ends, but it all is good.

The burnt ends are wonderful. You must try. Restaurant is busy even on a Monday evening but even with that the wait time was not too bad.

Jack Stack is KC BBQ at it's finest. Delicious tender meats, delicious BBQ baked beans and cheesy corn. Quality is always good and you'll want to come back for more!

This is my 1st or 2nd stop every time I come to KC. The Crown ribs is the poster boy for how ribs should be done. Tender, juicy and out-this-world amazing. You can't get this anywhere else in the country. Washed it down with a Boulevard on Tap and you will be in BBQ heaven.

TripAdvisor identified Jack Stack as THEE place for Kansas City BBQ and since it was close to my hotel, it was clear I had to go! I was by myself and so took an available high-top table in the bar (by 6:30pm the wait for a dining room table was 40 minutes). My server was very friendly and efficient. I... More
