depending on the time you arrive, there may be a bit of a wait, but it'll most likely be worth the wait. the appetizers are pretty darn good too (the mushrooms,the onion rings,the chicken wings). the server was nice and attentive, but not hovering,she made suggestions that turn out to be really... read more

A good dinner meeting starts with some good food. The starters of onion rings, mushrooms are just plain oily substitutes of good food. This is not a 4-5 star excellent place to eat-sorry! Meat is good but again unfortunately not cooked to the point you would expect. Maybe we caught the wrong night (Monday) - a slab of lamb rib... More

Fair to a little above. Meat was cooked proper but actual quality of meat was not so good. Overpriced for the quality. Service fair.....

We walked in and couldn't hardly see where to sit. Lighting is WAY TOO DARK !! If there hadn't been outdoor seating and the weather was ok, we would have left !! Food was good, an extensive menu,, a little overpriced but good, waitress was knowledgeable And helpful. Used UBER to get there vs a taxi.. Which is a better... More

The food was excellent! I was seated almost immediately, even though the restaurant was very busy. My server was attentive and helpful in selecting a great meal. I enjoyed their corn bake and a special which included brisket, ribs, and pulled pork. Come hungry because you get a lot of food and they have different sauces to accommodate all. I... More

My colleagues and I were looking for the best BBQ in town, and was surprised at the lack of quality from Jack Stack. The burnt ends were very fatty, and the ribs weren't much better. If this is the highest rated BBQ restaurant in KC, I am shocked. Don't waste your time.

We have eaten at a number of barbecue restaurants in many cities and this made it to our top 5 list. The crown rib was awesome as well as the burnt ends. The baked beans was the best ever and the cheesy corn was very good. We sat at the bar since it was just the two of us and... More

The food is good here, not great. I had forgotten that I didn't love this place so we went back, only to leave with the same feeling. There was about a 30 minute wait, we were seated, our waiter arrived in a prompt fashion, but everything else kind of went down from there. I ordered burnt ends which our my... More

We went most recently for a friend's birthday, but have been several other times. Service and food ware very good. Atmosphere and decor were very nice and made it a special evening. I would definitely go again
