The place was packed on the Tuesday we went to dinner. The atmosphere is very cozy; we were comfortably seated. The food was incredible — the fried mushrooms were huge! I enjoyed everything about this place, including the Strawberry Shandy drink I had... Sweet!

Jack Stack's Barbecue is consistently excellent, not only at this location but others as well. The baby back ribs with meaty beans side is my favorite. A dinner was enjoyed in the bar area in front of a large television. In and out on a Monday night at 5 in less than 30 minutes.

This place is a must! I enjoy both the Martin city location and the 95th and Metcalf location. Be prepared for a wait at the Metcalf location. However, it is worth the wait. You absolutely MUST order the dry rubbed wings not saucy just large and good. Also the Baby back ribs are fantastic with a side salad and you... More

We enjoyed our dinner at Jack Stack, Overland Park. We sampled the ribs, chicken, pork and lamb - and each of the meats was perfectly prepared and delicious. The side dishes were outstanding as well - particularly the vegetable kabob which was grilled to perfection and a real standout! But beware - they do not take reservations for parties under... More

It had been over 15 years since I was last in KC. Group said we must go for dinner. I am glad we did, I was told to try the crown beef ribs, yes! Please save room for desert, it is hard but the carrot cake is one of the best I ever had! Staff is wonderful but don't turn... More

Jack Stack is what BBQ should be. Very flavorful, and smoked perfectly (not overly smoky flavor like some places I've tried.) The baked cheese potato side is really good, and the baked beans are outstanding!

We were told to come to a Jack Stack while in town and we came to this one, albeit to simply eat and be in Kansas. The food was amazing. My fiance and I shared their meat platter with 4 meats (burnt ends, sliced pork, chicken, and lamb ribs) and their sides (beans and broccoli). It was succulent and easily... More

The Restaurant has outstanding smoked meats but a few hidden gems bring the locals back again and again. The best bbq beans and cheesy corn are must have side dishes. Off the same path as many Kansas city bbq favorites is their burnt end stew. Hearty and rich flavor sure to be requested again.

The food is great. The pork center cut ribs are my preferred choice. I recommend skipping the carrot cake and going to Burger King for an ice cream cone!

This is not your ordinary barbecue, definitely upscale. Jack Stack is a stand out among many KC barbecue dining options. Variety of meat I had for dinner was so tasty and cooked to perfection. The sides of cheesy corn and beans were amazing. Topping it all off was the attentive service. So glad we tried JS on our recent visit... More
