Their crown beef ribs are special, but there are other great meat options including lamb and fish. There are several great BBQ restaurants in KC but Jack Stack has the best sides. Service is always great.

There is NO better bbq ... anywhere. Jack's is our family favorite for decades and the latest LS location is a bonus. Never had so much as a complaint over hundreds of dining experiences. This is our go-to restaurant when guests are in town because...it never disappoints. You know what you're going to get ... it's consistent every single time. Best wood smoked salmon I've ever had. Additionally, only the best people are hired here. Many other establishments could learn a thing or two from Jacks.More

I got the Big Pig sandwich, it had shaved ham, pulled Pork & bacon on it with pro alone cheese and a giant onion ring on it! I love this sandwich, but I can only eat half, because it is so big! It comes with...fries, but they let you substitute the cheesy potatoes, which I have to have! They are delicious! My husband has to get the lamb ribs and brisket, he loves them! He got the hickory pit beans & the cheesy corn bake. We share the sides, because they are so good! The beans are my favorite of anyones, anywhere!More

Food was very good and service was excellent! One recommendation is to make a reservation or you may be waiting quite awhile for a table.

The KC sampler. Brisket burnt ends, ribs, wings, and a couple sides. By the way, the sides are not to be ignored. The meats were so good with the barbecue sauce, especially. It was outstanding. We ordered ahead, and they had a very organized system...for pickup. We found a vacant area of the parking lot with some shade and ate it hot. Other reviewers have spoken. It is one of KC’s best.More

A bit of a white linen BBQ place, but the food is really good. Nice brisket and the burnt ends are consistent and usually the best around. There are other KC "joints" where I like the sauce a little bit better, but Jack Stack has...more consistently good meat, and their sauce is certainly good enough. Matter of personal taste. I usually take-out and they always do a good job of that process.More

My wife and I have been going to this restaurant for years now. We have never had a bad meal there, and the quality of service is always outstanding. Since restaurants have had to close their dining rooms because of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have...ordered carry-out from many of our favorite restaurants with mixed results. Many do not maintain the same quality of food that we got when dining in. But that is NOT the case with Jack Stack. There has been literally no fall off in the quality of what we get. This is an extremely well-run restaurant from top to bottom. Highly recommended.More

Grilled Shrimp w/ BBQ butter appetizer for a start was delicious. Kids were thrilled with their onion ring stack as well. Bothe the lamb ribs and the baby back were “fall off the bone” tender and moist. Perfectly done. And the still steaming carrot cake...finish topped everyone off. However it was our server Chase that went above and beyond. Great care during the visit however he went the extra mile on putting together our “doggy bag”.When we got home, we opened the bag to put everything away and it was all labeled and dated and in one box marked “assorted”, each item was individually wrapped! 🤯 Never had that happen before, thanks Chase! I feel bad for having only left $40 now.More
