2nd trip to KC this summer and this time we decided to see what all talk about Jacks was about. BBQ is messy,sticky and best of all great for sharing a meal with friends at a ballgame. The great was the very tender rib meat and delicious burnt ends. The good was the brisket sandwich, the meat was flavored well... More

They told to go here and eat what ever on the card. Every think was good to eat. I liked the atmosphere in there. The waiter was very good and helpful. No rush and always on time with the beer and the food. Will come back here again.

On a business trip to KC, and had to try the KC BBQ. This place is awesome. Had the beef burnt ends and they were delicious. Main dish, I had the ribs and chicken plate, the ribs were very tender and the sauce was on time. The wait time was approximately 20 minutes but was very worth it. When your... More

We just thought we were hungry. The great waitress, Lisa, helped us order just the right size sharing plate. Of course, it came with all the trimmings, we had too many to choose from on the menu. Great wine, great food, and the only exception I could think of is the sliced sausage was way too thin for my liking.... More

We decided to stop in Kansas City on our way home from vacation. Jack Stack was a highlight of our trip. Location in Kansas City and building connected to Union Station is very nice. We were told a 45 minute wait, but were seated after 20 minutes. The ribs were outstanding. Had beef and pork. Brisket was also tasty. Like... More

I had the burnt ends and ribs with the creamy corn and baked beans. It was some really good! The restaurant was busy but we were immediately seated. Our table service was... More

I was here for a business supper and really enjoyed the food here. I had done a little research before hand of the Plaza area and this looked great since KC is known for their BBQ. It's still a place you could take customers even though it is mainly BBQ but everyone loved their food. I had the Kansas City... More

Even for a late lunch on a Friday, this legendary barbecue joint was so packed that we had to sit at the bar. Popularity is usually a good sign in the restaurant business and this place was no different. As a Chicagoan, I had no idea what "burnt ends" were prior to setting foot in Kansas City, so i made...

We visited as part of a large group. Made reservations and were seated quickly. I am not a huge BBQ connoisseur, but was eager to try something new! I got the "Jack's Best" to be able to try a variety of things. It says it feeds one but it would easily feed two- there is a ton of meat! The... More

Local friends took us here, telling us it was their favorite BBQ place in KC. We shared lunch, in the bar, as the wait for tables on a Saturday was very long. The atmosphere was not at all what we expected for a typical BBQ place -- it was a renovated warehouse that was spacious and warm. Even the bar... More
