We had a huge group and tried almost everything on the menu. The Burnt ends were fabulous. The southern Jack was delicious and the cheesy corn to die for. The restaurants very convenient downtown in the old Freighthouse a great parking and inside and outside seating.

We walked from the convention center (was a bit of a hike but mostly downhill - after the first 10 minutes or so). We arrived at 5:20 and there was already a half hour wait. Fortunately one of our group grabbed a ride with a friend and got there before us and put our name in so we were seated... More

I went to Jack Stack based off a recommendation and was not disappointed that I did. The food was great, the service was perfect, and the atmosphere was not what I had expected. This place is a little different from most BBQ places that more “cafeteria” style in that you sit down at a table and order off a menu.... More

My husband and I were staying at the Marriott Downtown and we wanted to try this place. If you don't mind walking a bit you can easily catch the street car and get fairly close to the restaurant. We went at lunch time during the week and had about a 20-25 minute wait. My husband had the baby back ribs... More

Decided to go to a late lunch at Jack Stacks. The line was out the door and unable to get a seat in this life time. The staff showed on interest in the fact of a long waiting time, offered no apology, or words of incouragement. Had a great lunch at the restaurant next door.

We visit Fiorello's Jack Stack locations around town (depending on other events we are attending or if we are home) and it is always a great food experience as well as terrific service and well-crafted ambiance. My personal favorite is the Signature Crown Rib(s). This is about as moist and tender and flavorful any piece of meat can be. It... More

This restaurant came highly recommended and we were not disappointed! They worked with me in the revision and finalizing of reservations for a group of 22. We were a bit late being seated, but that was the fault of the previous parties who didn't leave. The brief wait was more than made up by PERFECT service, division of checks according... More
