I regularly eat at Jack Stack - Freight House. I am never disappointed. It is a favorite destination of my customers for lunch. One of my favorite dishes at Jack Stack is their Barbecue Trout. It melts in your mouth. Awesome!

The food was very tasty. We split the combo dinner. We ate it all and left fat and happy! Our server was amazing at accommodating our big group: splitting checks, special diets, and kept the drinks coming.

To me Jack Stack is the best barbecue in KC. I always get the baby back ribs, beans, Cole slaw, and fries. Always incredible. I eat mostly at the original location in Martin City but I've been to the others as well. The service is always great and atmosphere, too.

Jack Stack in the Freight house is excellent. Burnt ends, a KC favorite, ribs, salads, you name it. It is all delicious. They are extremely busy at lunch and also dinner. Expect a wait but worth it.
