Reliably Great

If you want BBQ this is THE place to eat. I have been here twice in the last five months and the food is superb. Unlike some KC BBQ places they do not seem to use vinegar as a seasoning in the sauce.their BBQ. Although you will be stuffed you might want to leave room for the delightfully decadent... read more

This is a great place! Can be noisy at times and there is a wait at dinner time, Go early if you want some burnt end stew. They only make 1 batch and when its gone - it's gone. A little expensive, but worth it!

We were just traveling through and saw that TripAdvisor listed Jack Stack as one of the better restaurants in the area. Since we have been using the Jack Stack barbecue beans recipe for years we thought we would give it a try. Everything was great. The coleslaw was awesome and we had one of the combination plates which was more... More

I would first like to say that Jack Stack Barbecue is a little different from your ordinary Bar B Q, Restaurants. Some restaurants have employees in tee shirts. Well jack Stack is more formal dinning in the way their Wait Staff is adorned. When we arrived on a Saturday Evening our wait was about 30 minutes. so I would suggest... More

Great food. Excellent service and a wonderul atmosphere! The Burnt ends and Ribs are excellent. Our server went out of her way to make sure we never wanted or needed anything.

My husband and I visited on a Tuesday night. We were seated promptly. The atmosphere was unusual for bbq, much more formal than I would expect. You could wear shorts just as easily as business casual and feel comfortable. The food was really good. We orders the burnt ends an appetizer. Both baby back and spare pork ribs were great!

Okay so I'm from the upper Midwest so not the best place for ribs so take my review with a grain of salt! This trip we tried ribs in Memphis and ribs here in KC. Hands down the ribs at Jack Stack's were the best. Probably the best ribs I've ever eaten in my life. I'd go back to KC... More

I've been going to the place since I was a little girl and it never disappoints. The place always smells amazing, the staff is always friendly, and the food is absolutely amazing. There are so many great items on the menu, but I always have my favorites. The Poor Russ sandwich (burnt ends) is always a winner and the beans... More
