We had an excellent meal at the Freight house. The prime ribs, Lamb ribs, pork ribs and Beef ribs were all great. The Corn bread was to die for . The service was spot on. Be prepared for a short wait for a table but well worth it .

It was to die for!!! they serve it warm it was so delicious. We... More

We stopped in for a mid-afternoon Sunday lunch and the place was busy at 2:00pm with a 30 minute wait. We passed the time in the bar and were called within the projected time. It was a warm and sunny afternoon so we opted for dining on the patio. Kari was our waitress and was helpful, friendly and efficient. My... More

You just can't go wrong here. Great BBQ, large and diverse menu -- and consistency in visit after visit. Great for business get-togethers and family outings, too. For a lot of people, this is KC's best 'que -- a reputation that has been well-earned.

Beef ribs, pork ribs both were good. The rib eye stake was above average for a good restaurant-better the the local stake houses in KC. Burnt end just ok. The side were also very good tried Beans, slaw and potato au gratin.

Arrived around six and told 1 1/2 hour wait. Rather than sit we moved to bar and after sort wait found two seats at the bar. Ordered bottle of wine, fried mushrooms that were huge and excellent and watch college basketball and visited - bar staff is excellent! Hour and half later we sat in Booth with the last half...

I agree that this is one of the best restaurants in Kansas City! The menu has the largest variety of choices that I've ever seen for a restaurant specializing in BBQ. My sister had the BBQ shrimp which were scrumptious, while my husband had a yummy Beef Brisket Sandwich. I had a lunch plate with beef and pork "burnt ends"... More

First time at Jack Stack and we weren't disappointed! Met friends for a delicious dinner and drinks. Meat was tender and the beans were amazing. Great service too! Enjoyed the location and ambiance. Would definitely return!

Jack Stack BBQ is considered one of the best in the nation and it usually keeps up with that reputation. There's multiple locations around Kansas City. I haven't ate it all of them but assume they are all similar in product quality. I have eaten at the original one in Martin City and the one at 95th and Metcalf. Both... More

Good food, sometimes a bit of a wait, but worth it. An interesting walking distance from the Sheraton Crown Center through the Skywalk and Union Station.
