Great Barbecue and Outstanding Service

Memphis barbecue is hard to beat, but tonight I had my first Crown Beef Rib and it was tender and tasty. My server Cindy explained the menu items well and made great suggestions. Memphis is best for pork, but I will give KC the nod on beef.

I really loved this place, I'm a BBQ connoisseur so I ordered the sampler. I always thought I was a big eater but this was a large plate and I had to work to leave no man behind (well, ribs in this case). As much as I like a BBQ joint with butcher paper for a plate, Jack's is a... More

We just took a friend in from Canada to try Jack Stack's, and although he prefers his sauce hot, he agreed that Jack Stack had great ribs and the best sides of all barbecue places in the area. I still love Gates for ribs, but no one can beat the sides at Jack Stack. Everything is well prepared and always... More

Jack Stack may not be the hippest KC BBQ place, but it is a reliable standby. And reliable doesn't do it justice. The samplers offer fantastic options--from burnt ends to rubs, pork and brisket, all fantastic. Beer list filled with Boulevard beer doesn't hurt!

Hadn't heard of this barbecue restaurant previous to looking it up on Trip Advisor. Service was excellent and the barbecue some of the best I've ever had. I had a trio of ribs (pork/beef) and burnt tips. I had "spicy" barbecue sauce on the side and cheesy corn and beans. I wouldn't change any of it as it was all... More

I happened to be in Kansas City for a night and a student from the University suggested this as one of the 3 best BBQ restaurants. We went to the location at 4747 Wyandotte St, I pride myself on my ribs, but these were far and away the best BBQ pork ribs I have ever eaten. Family friendly restaurant with... More

We stopped at Jack Stack's for lunch. We wanted bar-b-q and were not disappointed. The service was very good and the food was great, esp. the crème brulee. It was a little dark for lunch, but other than that, I was very happy with our meal.

We were lucky to get a seat at the bar on a busy Saturday night. The beer is cold, the meats are scrumptious and the cheese bake is to die for! The bartenders are great and very knowledgable of the area. Make sure you take home the rub and the BBQ sauce.
