Server was mediocre at best, impersonal. Food came out cold, they did remedy it, which is why I gave two stars instead of one, but it was still meh. Fries were good. I'm NOT a complainer, I hate writing negative reviews, but should've gone KC...Joes. Fifty dollar lesson learned. (Don't make our mistake!)More

It's KC! You want BBQ! Well Jack Stack is your go to. There are a couple locations in the area. One should work great for you and what your stay involves. Now, what did I have with my amazing burnt ends? Their side of cole...slaw which is a must pairing for BBQ and some knock your socks off baked beans. We smoke pork. It's what my family does. The bar is set high. Ok, so I loved the food but what about the atmosphere? Don't plan on rushing in and out. Stay, have a beverage, have a starter, Enjoy the company of your group, and hit a home run with your main course but know that carrot cake awaits at the end! So it is December 2020. We are all on guard for our health and loved ones. Jack Stack has curbside take out. Use it!More

Our party of 5 was seated immediately. Our server was OK. My biggest dining disappointment was that my husband got food poisoning from the pork ribs. He was sick all night and throughout entire next day. As a result, this experience compromised our visit to...Kansas City.More

No complaints here. This was a great BBQ spot for us. We had one night in Kansas City and were staying across the street so the location for us was perfect. The beans are great. The perfect combo of sweet and seasoned. The ribs were...falling off the bone and dessert was a bonus.More

Although the staff was confused by my order, they did everything they could to correct my order, including bringing me too much food. 5 stars for the incredibly moist, flavorful beef and pork ends ... I so wish I could get them near me. Cheesy...corn was a new taste - lots of cheese!More

Being from out of town I was looking for a recommendation on where to get good Kansas City Barbeque. Jack Stack did not disappoint. It was delicious. I went with their choose 3 selection and had the brisket, pulled pork and sausage. They were all...delicious. The Cheesy corn was also very good. I was there by myself and the 2 women working at the bar were awesome. Very kind, friendly and helpful. Would highly recommend.More
