Dimly lit restaurant, on its way to being full already at 6pm on a Friday. Mouth watering smoky smell hit you on entry. We went for a combo dish that was billed for 1 person, our server helpfully said it would serve us both- which it did, in addition to a side of hickory beans. Spiked with meat. Amazing. The... More

Went with a group to this very popular establishment. It was busy but we were put on a waitlist and went to the bar where we could order drinks and an appetizer - burnt ends! Fantastic. This was a great warm up to what was to come. We shared a platter which was fantastic. I highly recommend

We enjoyed a late lunch today. This was my first visit to this location. The service was fantastic. The atmosphere is very relaxed and comfortable. The food was the star-best barbecue I have had in months!

We sought this place out after reading many reviews about the BEST BBQ in Kansas City. We loved the atmosphere, the server, Jimmy, was awesome, and he recommended some items we should try. We both got combos and added the Crown Prime Rib to one, so lots of choices to get a sample of everything. The "burnt ends" were delicious,... More

We were told by numerous people to go to Jack Stack's BBQ while in KC. It was a little difficult to find and parking in area is limited.. We tried to go to dinner, but the line was so long and we were told it would be at least a hour wait, we decided to pass that night. Long lines... More

My friends and I were told of this place during a business conference. We were totally blown away at how good this BBQ was. For me the true test of good BBQ is brisket. Pork is a favorite of many but I can smoke a pork butt. Brisket is an art. So the guys and I ordered burnt ends and... More

JackStack is a top 3 BBQ destination in KC and #1 for high-end, white table cloth type atmosphere. This location is the best in KC - nestled in the freight house district and close to Union Station, World War One Memorial, Crown Center and downtown. The bar is my favorite area - very swanky and great bartenders. I have also... More

Went to this awesome setting for lunch with a co-worker today and what a fabulous lunch we had. I had the Meat combo platter and she had the Prime Rib lunch...they were both phenomenal! I would definitely ask for some original sauce on the side, as its great on everything. Angela, our waitress, came by on numerous occasions to check... More

You cannot go wrong with any of the barbecue and you definitely cannot go home hungry from here. We were here with customers and they agreed this was great for food and drinks.
