Best BBQ I've ever had!

Ok, so here's how I think they make the Beef Crown Prime Ribs. The pit master hops on a helicopter to Jurassic Park, hunts down a Brontosaurus, shoots it, harvests its ribs', brings them back, and then barbecues them to sweet sweet perfection. THESE THINGS ARE HUGE! Imagine a beef pot roast... read more

Had the burnt ends lunch, the wife had a pulled chicken sandwich. Both VERY good. Barbecue sauce is not as sweet as I am used to but also very good. Excellent service, thanks to James our waiter.

Jack Stack Barbecue is what Kansas City barbecue is all about! The meats are tender, smoky and delicious - have tried the brisket and pulled pork. The sides are great - cheesy corn, coleslaw, fries, but the baked beans.....are the BEST! Brisket is baked right in the beans, and they are thick and sweet. There's a lot of competition for... More

We went in on a Friday night at 6:40 PM. The hostess told us the wait time was one to one and a half hours, so we headed to the bar. Our table was ready in about 45 minutes, so it was nice that they under-promised and over-delivered. We'd never been to a KC BBQ place before and our server... More

I liked the creamed cheesy corn, burnt ends and brisket. The bar was great and just a fun place to visit.
