This place takes BBQ to a different level. Phenomenal menu includes classic BBQ items (ribs, chicken, sausage, turkey, beef) and throws in lamb ribs and prime rib to boot. Also seafoood and steak for the non-BBQ fans. Sampler platters help ease the decision process. Had a sampler of pork ribs, chicken and beef "burnt ends", a specialty. All six of... More

We had several folks recommend Jack Stack's to us. We both had combination dishes to try a little of everything. Quick good service and we were not disappointed in any way.

If you are looking for a fancy, sit-down BBQ restaurant, this is your place to go. The food tastes amazing and the atmosphere is quite classy. That being said, this is not on the same level as Oklahoma Joe's or Arthur Bryants for value. The food is expensive by KC standards and portion sizes are average to small. This would... More

Awesome BBQ restaurant with great service and wonderful food - lots of choices for entrees and sides. We enjoyed a beautiful outdoor lunch and admired the historic architecture in the neighborhood, then walked off our lunch by hiking the beautiful trails along Brush Creek. Parked free on the street about 50 yd from the front door - there is also... More

Had a casual lunch here. Very good bbq, but it borders on the verge of being very mass-produced feeling and doesn't have the charm of a family business. Had a fabulous Bloody Mary though. :-)

I had the Mayor Something or other (bad memory) which was a BBQ w/ Coleslaw sandwich. VERY delicious! I opted for the cheesy corn. VERY happy I did. Love 'em (it?)! Beans were the way I like 'em. Smokey sweet. Excellent service. My boss had a rib. It was HUGE. He said it was fantastic. And another co-worker had a... More

Have eaten here MANY times....and will eat here many more! Nothing is bad here, everything is ALWAYS perfect. Most love the Burnt Ends (in several different meats), but my favorite, and always will be, is the Crown Prime Beef Ribs! I rate this restaurant number ONE of ALL the restaurants I've ever been to. Four locations in KC.....and EVERY one... More

Great place, service and atmosphere are outstanding. Being an ol' Southern boy I was excited about the cue' having always heard of KC BBQ. Wasn't fond of the brisket at all, really greasy, the ribs were dry but the chicken was excellent. I started to get the half chicken and wished I had. The sides were fries(just ok) and some... More

I have been to a stacks before and this was excellent. Even though they were busy... I had great service and the food was outstanding. I even brought home some BBQ sauce. If visiting the KC area.. go to a Stacks restaurant- food is great! Oh- go hungry, the servings are large!

The atmosphere is cozy - we sat at high tops in the bar/lounge area and it was very pleasant - big fireplace gave it a nice feel. The service was attentive and very helpful - explained menu options thoroughly. the barbeque, "burnt ends" and cheesy corn were all terrific - would definitely go back!
