Jack's Stack has the best BBQ lunch in KC. Start with an Arnold Palmer to drink and then order a burnt ends lunch plate with signature cheesy corn bake. Great service and delightful atmosphere. The BBQ burnt ends (beef and pork) speak for themselves and add a little spicy BBQ sauce to complete the taste.

Wow, this place is terrific! If you have never had the real deal KC BBQ, come here! Get the burnt ends which are to die for, and also don't miss out on the oh so tender beef ribs. The cheesy corn is nice too but I think the sauce would be better poured over some pasta (mac n cheese anyone!?).... More

After moving my son to Overland Park to attend chiropractic college we decided barbecue was the only way to go and chose Jack Stack because of the location. Oh my. We arrived at 5:30 on a Saturday night and there were already people waiting outdoors. We were still seated within 15 minutes and everything was excellent. Best barbecue we have... More

Fancy BBQ place that seems to value sides more than the meat. Good appetizers. Mushrooms and onion rings are massive and tasty. Wings are excellent and I enjoy the spinach salad. Brisket is trimmed too much so it is tough and dry. Faux burnt ends suffer from the same problem. Menu says spare ribs, but they don't tell you they... More

Jack Stack is my favorite in KC. I like the Martin City location the best, although the food is consistently good at the other locations. This is a good place to take a group of friends.

The burnt ends are authentic and excellent. But the "smoked Turkey breast" is horrible. Deli meat at Walmart is better. I love smoked turkey breast and if you do too...this is not your restaurant. Luckily I ordered the combo and got the beef burnt ends with the turkey breast, I did no go hungry. But if I had only ordered... More

was very disappointed with my meal here. The coleslaw was kind of sour tasting. I realize that coleslaw is subjective and everyone makes it differently so I could give a pass on that if the rest of the meal had been good. It wasn't. Not that it couldn't have been, I ordered the Kc combo with burnt ends and chicken.... More

We visited there for dinner. We were quickly seated and the service was excellent. The whole atmosphere of the restaurant was also good! I really enjoyed eating here. What I loved the most was the Fried Mushrooms! They were huge and very very good!! I would strongly recommend it! BBQ was good. I will not say the best, but it... More
