Good BBQ and Great Service

We tried Jack Stax because it was so highly rated and it was close to our hotel. We ordered a 4 meat meal for 2 /3 sides. I really liked the burnt ends and the brisket was good as were the ribs. The cheesy corn and baked beans were very good, average potato salad. The service was fantastic and... read more

I ate at this Jack Stack on Wednesday August 26, 2015. I ate at the bar and there was no wait during the late lunch time. I ordered pork burnt ends and the crown prime beef rib with a side of beans. EVERY bite was absolutely perfect and delicious. I will be back again and again!

I call this my upscale bbq favorite. The food is consistently perfect. Try the sliced brisket and the sliced sausage. If you are in the mood - they have some of the best onion rings in town. (Best eaten in the Restaraunt - not as good to go).

Was in KC for business so naturally thought of bbq. Have been to others over the years so I though I would try a new place. Food was good but can't say I was blown away by any means, especially the burnt ends which were nothing like I've had before. Worth trying if you have a hunger for GBA but... More

This is the place to be if you truly love BBQ. Be prepared to wait for quite awhile. It's not my most favorite, mainly because BBQ isn't my first choice in food.

We visited this restaurant with family that lives in KC. You can't come to KC without trying the BBQ and this was the place to go, so we were told. Well we were not disappointed. The food selection was awesome. The waiter was super friendly and attentive. All of us had ribs and we had the "ends" appetizers. That was... More

The food is always good. You get what you expect here. Nothing out of the ordinary. Their corn casserole is good. I've only eaten at the Plaza location. The service is always good. I would recommend the pulled pork.

Burnt ends...have not had better in 2 weeks of being in KC. Picked up a few bottles of sauce and rubs. Can't wait to use it at home!

The flavor of any meat is spot on, but the pulled pork and turkey are perfect. You have to have the beans as well.
