This was the second time I have been to KC and visited this Jack Stack location. Phenomenal service at the bar. The team was knowledgeable and friendly. The food was perfectly cooked and delivered. It was delicious and highly recommended. Quick tip - on Sunday 7/26 there was an hour and half long wait at the Freight House location, we... More

I was told this was some of the best bar-b-q in Kansas City, it was good but I’ve had much better. Staff was great, food was good, and the environment was very nice! It was about a 25 minute wait for general seating but we ate at the bar so it was immediate seating. Some very good sides and sauces... More

Staff was great, service was quick and portions were perfect. They have a good selection, brisket, ribs, chicken, pork, shrimp and everything I tasted was good. Loved the cheesy corn bake.

This is a family favorite place that we have been visiting for years. We usually get all different sides so we can share. I usually get a pork sandwich and load on the extra barbecue sauce they give you. I normally don't like spicy stuff, but their spicy barbecue sauce is pretty much perfect. My favorite sides are the coleslaw,... More

Good barbecue. It was a little salty for my taste. However, you get large portions and different options for sauces. The cornbread bake was great!

I ate dinner here on a Saturday when I was visiting KC with a group of friends. Our food was good and the service was excellent. They have a good drink list that has something for everyone. I got the burnt ends and they were a little fatty for me, but overall tasted great. The sides and salads were all... More

I consider myself to be a BBQ snob. Coming from Oklahoma we have good 'Cue. I'm not gonna waste my time or money on ok BBQ. I will only deal with Good BBQ. This place has that in Spades!! This is honestly some of the Best BBQ I've ever had. In fact, I will no longer go to 2 BBQ... More

What a great selection of BBQ'd meats and side dishes -- all very delicious. The staff was friendly and helpful, as this was our first time at a Jack's Stack. Oh, yes, the desserts were wonderful, too (we had them to go and ate them later that evening).

This was recommended to us as the best barbecue. So we went with some others from our conference. Our waitress explained the different items on the menu for us and we made our choices. Our friends had the combo plate, with different kinds of ribs and really enjoyed it. My husband and I split a rack. It was a lot... More
