Delicious BBQ Delight in Freight House District - Kansas City, MO

I am an absolute lover of American BBQ, from Texas to Kansas City, I seek it out high and low. I was recently in Kansas City, MO and found Jack Stack and made a bee-line for it. The ambiance is wonderful, and the lighting low-lit. The menu was simply wonderful with so many great choices. I... read more

I have loved Jack Stack for many years, but have not had it for many years. Had a burnt end lunch take out a couple of weeks ago and I closed my eye and groaned as I ate it. It was fantastic. The beans were even better than I remembered and the cheesy corn is off the chain good!

For such a highly rated BBQ restaurant I expected mind blowing ribs and they were average. Maybe someone who wasn't raised in the south in a household where barbecuing is a competitive sport would have enjoyed it more. The pork ribs had a nice smoke that's all I can say. The burnt ends were tasty but seemed old. They weren't... More

Meat lovers heaven! So much good food and the portions are huge! Come hungry. There will probably be a wait to get in but it's worth it. Parking can be kinda tricky. You might be in for a little walk. The service was fast and the staff was friendly.

Barbecue is always a loaded subject. Everyone has their favorite place and style and that’s that. But for those who are willing to try something different (or are already a devotee of how it is done in Kansas City), then I highly recommend Jack Stack. After quite a few recommendations from locals, my wife and I tried the Freight House... More

The atmosphere was very nice, I had the prime rib which was good along with the cheesy corn. Very nice for a business dinner

One of the number one BBQ restaurants in Kansas City. Been going all my life. Try the Prime Rib, it is my favorite.

Husband and I were looking forward to eating here based on a recommendation of a friend. Big disappointment! The waitress was not helpful at all, just in a constant hurry. Ordered the 3 meat sampler...what a joke. The 3 burnt ends were little squares of half meat/half fat. Brisket - 3 slices of meat so thin they were hard to... More

I don't like meat, so not a great place to take vegetarians....but I really liked the southwest chicken salad. The wait for a table for 3 was over an hour and there isn't much room to stand or sit to wait for a table. We waited in the empty banquet room and were talked to by the manager asking us... More

We were asking locals where their favorite barbecue was and we were told to eat at Jack Stacks. OMG the cheesy corn is outa of this world. I have never had anything like it. The meat was good as were the beans. Over all it was a great experience. Would eat there again.
