Family of four enjoyed a Sunday lunch. Jack Stack is a must stop for us when we are in Kansas City. First time at this location and while the environment is not as nice as others the food did not disappoint. Service was great! Still...our favorite BBQ restaurant in Kansas City.More

Had takeout last night from Jack Stack. I had three meat combination. The lamb ribs were amazing. Juicy tender and delicious. Burnt ends and beef ribs were good. My wife had pulled pork which she said was good. Others in party had chicken breast which...was over cooked and brisket sandwich. Portions were generous. Lost of left overs.More

Tried the burnt tips and the sliced brisket. Both were dry, bland, and tasteless. The burnt ends sandwich meat had the consistency of sawdust but did not taste as good. I can't say if the food was just really old or just severely overcooked. Service...was poor. I can't think of any reason to come back to this place. The waitress asked what I thought of the food that I had pushed aside, I told her which prompted the manager to come over and harass us for 10 minutes.More

We arrived at about 9:00 pm and were quickly seated. Tables are spaced apart and screens separate the booths. All the food servers wear masks and appear to do a very good job. My wife and I ordered the Burnt ends dinner for two and...found both the pork and beef burnt ends very tasty. The sides included coleslaw, baked beans, and cheesy corn. Everything was very good.More

Beans are in the toilet. Used to be our favorite side but no more. Now the beans are smaller, crunchy as in undercooked. The beans overall are watered down and no longer have that to-die-for flavor. I truly cannot say I will stop getting jack...stack but we will not go as often and WILL NOT GET THESE SORRY-FULL BEANS AGAIN!!More

I was visiting family and friends in Overland Park April 9th. They made glowing comments about Jack Stack so my sister and I decided to order one beef and one pork burnt ends dinner. My sister previously raved about the burnt ends, but this time...she said the pork burnt ends were terrible and the accompanying sauce was not good. She ate about a third of her meal and tossed out the rest. My beef burnt ends were no better than just ok and I agree that the sauce was nothing special. She also didn't like the potato salad side but I thought mine was ok. Based on this recent experience, neither of us would order Jack Stack again. About $40.00 for a so so meal.More

Trust me, you want the lamb ribs! Extremely flavorful with just the right balance of fat and meat! The BBQ shrimp was excellent, and of course the cheesy corn! Can’t go wrong with Jack Stack!

This was my first visit to this Jack Stack location and this location is my favorite so far. I suggest making a reservation if it’s during the peak hours, we arrived at 7:45pm on a Friday evening, we had a reservation and still had to...wait a few minutes but the wait was not very long. Our server did an excellent job and was very attentive. We started our order with drinks and the burnt end appetizer. The beef burnt ends and our drinks were amazing, we ordered (KANSAS CITY LEMONADE and the STRAWBERRY SHANDY COCKTAIL). Our entrees consisted of the 3 meat combo platter with sides. The meats we suggest are the brisket, beef ribs, baby back ribs and burnt ends, as for sides the baked beans, coleslaw, and potato salad were exceptional. If you enjoy BBQ I highly recommend this Jack Stack’s location.More

We had dinner at this restaurant to celebrate a birthday and expected delicious food. However, the best part of the evening was Calvin, our server. To be clear, we had been to the various Jack Stacks in the city a few times, and knew that...the food was going to be great. It was why we chose this spot for the special birthday dinner. It was our first experience with the blackberry salmon, which was lovely, though I personally thought it was best with loaded baked potato, and is not “typical bbq” flavor enough for me that I wanted cole slaw and baked beans as one of my companions had it. The trout was reported to me to be excellent, and the other couple shared a plate of lamb ribs, and between the two of them, still only finished half the ribs. But Calvin was genuinely everything that you would like your server to be. He was attentive and helpful in ordering. When I waffled between pork burnt ends (which I did not know existed before) and blackberry salmon, he most willingly brought me a sample of a pork burnt end, even plating it with a dish of BBQ sauce and a few slices of pickles. He volunteered to the birthday celebrator that she would receive a complimentary serving of carrot cake without us asking for it, and there were thoughtful suggestions along the way, like specifying what I wanted with my loaded baked potato without my having to ask and offering to pack up the carrot cake to go when he sensed that we might have had all we could eat there. And he brought one gentleman in our party glass after glass of lemonade refills without fail. All in all, he was everything you would want a server to be—friendly, efficient, professional, and helpful without being obsequious. Thank you for an excellent birthday celebration!More
