We go here every time we are in Kansas City and it never disappoints. The line to get in can get long and they don't take reservations. The sides are awesome. The coleslaw and cheesy corn bake are great. All the meat is good too.

There were three of us with no reservations but we walked in and were seated right away. The food was delicious.

We were in KC for a girls weekend and knew we wanted BBQ one of the nights we were in town. The wait was over an hour, but worth it. The pork spare ribs are yummy and the baked beans are amazing. Go when you have time to hang out with friends in the bar until a table is ready.

The food was on point. We enjoyed the taste and the BBQ was the best I've had. The service was questionable. We sat on the deck and were greeted right away. The waiter introduced himself and took our drink order. After that we seemed to disappear. I had to stop him to get more beers and it took him a... More

A visit to Jack Stack in Kansas City will not disappoint. Good food is to be expected, add a professional service crew, and the historic location and it is a win-win-win. Ribs, burnt ends, baked beans, salads, sandwiches, the list goes on. Better stop, I am making myself hungry for more Jack Stack!

Jack Stacks bbq is one of best in KC. You don't need any sauce because the smoking is done to perfection. Their beans are thick with bits of meat in them. The cheesy corn has a smoky flavor that makes you wanting more. When family come to town that is the first place they want to eat!! Yummyyyy!!

I visited the Jack Stack BBQ while in KC for a work trip. The location is in what seems like an industrial area but the restaurant is really nice inside. The wait for a table can be crazy so highly recommend a reservation or trying to get a spot at their small bar. The bar does serve food and that's... More

I dined here with several work colleagues from a conference we were all attending, and it was delicious! We'd heard it was a must-try barbecue joint, and I'm glad we did. I ordered the burnt tips beef and pork with excellent baked beans (I'm NOT a beans kind of gal), and this plate was great. The meat was very flavorful... More

My husband and I visited this restaurant in Kansas City last weekend. The barbque was excellent! The portions are very generous. Yes, we are older, but the 3 meat dinner was very ample for both of us. We chose the chicken, burnt ends sausage and beef ribs. It comes with slaw ( which was the best slaw I've ever eaten)....
