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

If you need a review of this place, you aren't a local. KC locals have different opinions on which BBQ joint has the best food, but overall this is the best BBQ in Kansas City and if you are from out of town this is place to go. The high quality and variety of menu items make this the best... More

Excellent, great walk across the tracks. BBQ is wonderful- corn casserole a must-have. It is a little pricy but the kid meals are good portion, or our last visit we got one regular meal and it was more than enough for both kids (7 & 9 years old)!!

Food is ok but everything on the menu is about 25% more expensive than it should be. I shared a sandwich with another adult and my spouse shared a plate with my daughter. Everyone had enough food but we weren't terribly hungry to start with. Sharing dulled the sticker shock enough to not completely regret the trip. Now that we... More

What a neat place to go and get some great traditional BBQ near Kansas City. There are three locations but this is the original location and well worth the visit. Love the Traditional BBQ, try the KC combo of Burnt Ends and Pork Baby Back Ribs and a side of Beans and slaw and you will leave very happy!

Lunch at Jack Stack's was excellent today. The staff were courteous and professional and their famous beef and pork "burnt ends" were delicious! The sweet tea is brewed perfectly and sweet, but not too sweet. The atmosphere is upscale and the prices were fair.

I had heard about this place for years and was very excited to finally go! It was very tasty with great service. They were very knowledgeable about what was safe for me to eat since I cannot have any gluten. I would recommend!

60 years ago, when I was a kid, this place was called The Smoke Stack. The food was great then and it’s still great. This is one of my favorite barbecue restaurants in KC.

The place was packed with a 30 minute wait so we thought this place must be good. It was average. The ribs and chicken were good. The bbq sauce was just okay. The fries had no seasoning. The cheese corn casserole was cold. My work mates stayed the Cole slaw was good though. Not worth the wait or cost with... More
