The expectations were met. Same as usual. Have always had discussion about the baked beans. The original recipe is excellent. Have eaten this food since the 40's. Can't stay in business that long without being good. Don't miss Jack Stack or the other family restaurants.

We were with a big group so waited for a while for a table. Our 3 kids under 6 were hungry so I asked the server if we could order for the kids first. She said no first then asked for our order (?!) so...I ordered. The language she used was not terrible but it was the ATTITUDE. Absolutely rude attitude and not trying to serve families. Then when I brought this to the manager’s attention, she was totally UNAPOLOGETIC but was defending the server so now I know where the poor customer service come from. They may have remodeled but nothing replaces good service. DON’T COME TO THIS LOCATION!More

Ordered out on our way through KC. Ordered the Burnt Ends combo and a great salad with it. Burnt Ends were ok but were drowning in sauce even though I asked for sauce on the side. Sausage was really good. Would try again but would...remind them sauce on side.More

Of the 3 Jack Stack locations near us, this is by far our favorite and the new renovations are awesome, so happy Dine In was open again. On that note, not a great meal, we were disappointed, first time ever. 2 of us did the...dinner of 3 Crown Ribs. This is our favorite choice, however, tonight 2 of the 3 came out quite charred making some of the meat like shoe leather and you don't expect that for the price you pay. Our server could see our displeasure and she knew it was not acceptable, she returned one full rib to the kitchen to show them and replace it. The new on was much better. Jalapeno cornbread is the best ever here and did not disappoint. Appetizer we always get too is fried mushrooms and they were not good this time. We asked if they changed up the batter mix. We were told NO, guess just a bad batch. Best part was the ooey gooey warm carrot cake for birthday dessert, best I have ever had, a must try. So, a bit disappointed this time around. We'll chalk it up to getting back into the groove after shut down. Special big Thanks to Cindy who took excellent care of us in spite of the Chef mishaps!More

Another great meal at Jack Stack! The meals were perfect and the service was superb! Darius was our server and he was top notch. Obviously, with Covid, he was wearing a mask. However, Darius shared his picture with us that’s was on the back of...his order pad and made the entire experience more personable. I wish more servers would do that! We had three different meals: baby back ribs, brisket and burnt ends. Great stuff. Again, a quick shout out to Darius and the rest of the team. Nice job!More

Pork ribs!!! Tender, flavorful, amazing sauces. The burnt ends were good but not astonishing- more cubes than ends. Beef ends more flavorful than pork. Both very tender. Wings smoked perfectly. We had honey, original, and hot sauces-- all perfectly balanced. Potato salad very good. Garlic...butter broccoli super delicious and makes you feel healthy! ;) Service is great- they've got the curbside pickup down to a science. Just passing through but will visit on our way back for sure!More

Their Martin City location is closed due to a big remodel going on. Luckily, they offer carry out and drive up curbside. Efficient process by calling ahead you wait in a stalk or drive lane and very soon that great BBQ soon arrives. Can’t wait...to see the new remodel. We had a big combo carry out pkg. Ribs. Pulled pork brisket and turkey. Came with sauce bread and 3 sides. Plenty of food for 3-4. Reasonable. We had 5 one being a young one so ordered 2 additional combo meat sandwiches too. Plenty of lunch. Few leftovers at dinner and young one hit midnight snack to finish it. Yummy and always a great close by choice for us.More

Best sides of any BBQ restaurant in KC (which says a lot because there are a lot of amazing BBQ joints in KC). Best baked beans on the planet and the sauce is amazing. Can't go wrong with any of the plates. The meat is...always cooked on point and delicious. Excellent wait staff as well. The only word of warning I have is be prepared to leave this place miserably full...yet extremely satisfied. Been coming here for 20 years.More

Well, this restaurant isn't exactly close to our home, but we were nearby yesterday and decided to stop in for a late lunch! I cannot praise this place highly enough. Yes, they are doing some exterior renovations to building and parking lot area, but don't...let that stop you. Have you ever gone someplace and when you left said that was just such a satisfying experience? This place does that. First, I love the cozy, ambiance of the interior. It is just the right mix of nostalgic, comfortable and intimate. No glaring lights or asphalt tile floors! Our server was very friendly and helpful, not to mention efficient. We both ordered the burnt ends which where absolutely delicious, perfectly cooked, and the perfect temperature. The French fries were also perfectly cooked, crispy on the outside and soft and tasty on the inside. The baked beans are also exactly the way I like them with chunks of meat and just the right mix of smoky and sweet. YUM! I had forgotten all the reasons I love this place SO much! I know everyone has different expectations of BBQ, especially around KC where we have the best BBQ in the country, but I really don't think this place will disappoint you! The price was also very reasonable.More

Yes. You can order them "dry". That's how my father in law ordered them. Enjoy!
