We recently visited this establishment during a family trip to the area. We originally were going to eat at a neighboring establishment, but we arrived at an awkward time to be served. It was suggested that we try Jack Stack. We were very pleasantly surprised....More

Their food is excellent, love the baked beans and brisket, but everything is good as is the atmosphere. I'm a fan of bread pudding and theirs is amazing. Will definitely be going back.

The sauce isnt too vinegary, or sweet or smokey. Everything on the menu is amazing. When i have clients come in from around the country asking about Kansas City BBQ, Jack Stack is #1 (fancier) or Joes KC #2 (messier)

Food was great as well as the service. The prices were reasonable. There was a wait of 50 minutes but it was well worth waiting for.

Gotta have'em. Beef burnt ends here are excellent and really the show stopper at Jack Stack's. This location and Martin City Location are the only ones to go to.....they taste world's better than the Overland Park location

Excuse our delay! Yes, our cornbread does indeed contain creamed corn!

We always encourage reservations, just in case. You can easily book online through our website or OpenTable, or you can contact the restaurant and speak with the host directly at 816.472.7427. We hope this helps!
