Terrific Food and Service

We visited on a Friday night so there was a bit of a wait. There is a nice patio area where you can enjoy drinks and appetizers while waiting to be seated.

As always food is superb. I always take out several meals to bring back home. There are no BBQ places like that here in Wisconsin.

Every anniversary my husband & I take turns each year choosing where we are going out to eat. My husbands choice is always this place because it's that good.

I have eaten here several times. It is worth the detour off of the highway on your way through Kansas City. It is a great old, cozy location, right at the intersection. Don't trust SIRI, it's a little further down the road. The ribs are always excellent, but anything here is good. The beans are also fantastic. The service is... More

Tried the lamb BBQ here and really loved it. BBQ sauce is a little bit sweeter than in Texas. But overall it's a good & clean restaurant with excellent service.

Great barbecue and friendly service. We visited Jack Stack on the recommendation of a local. It was a Friday evening and the place was packed and lots of people coming in for carry-out as well. While waiting for our table they had a nice patio area to wait in and they provided a server to offer drinks and appetizers during... More

this was some of the best barbecue I've ever had. We came here in a large group for a last-minute business lunch meeting. They easily accommodated us. I would absolutely go back again.

Great beef and pork burnt ends. Tried the lamb ribs for the first time. Very tasty. Beans are the best in town. And you have to try the cheesy corn.

One of our very favorite restaurants in the KC area! Love the cozy ambience and the dim lighting. We like the Roundup for 2, it has a little of everything with sides for around $30. Absolutely delicious! On a budget? Go during KC Restaurant Week, they run a great special.

We had a delightful evening with friends. We sampled all the four types of burnt ends as an appetizer, and each one of us had a different entree. I had the salmon and it was moist and tasty. The drinks were crafted in an appropriate manner and the pour was respectable. Our waiter, David F added to the evening with... More
