Disappointing. Waiters were disengaged, food was not great, and overpriced. Waiters did not recommend great food. Not worth it.

Three of us were in Kansas City for a few days and decided to try Jack Stack, Gates and Arthur Bryant's...in some people's book those are the top three in KC but it depends on who you ask. Two of us liked Jack Stack the best and the other one liked Gates. We all loved all three and they are all better than anything I can think of in Florida where we live. Jack Stack has something called a Crown Rib...unbelievable. Their burnt ends were awesome too. Great fries at all three. Try the cheesy corn bake at Jack Stack...wow. We wanted to try Oklahoma Joe's too but no time.

Whether it's burnt ends, lamb ribs or chicken, Jack Stack knows how to run a smoker. This is the second location at which we have eaten while visiting Kansas City. Both were outstanding. Great food plus good value!

My wife and I ate a lunch and dinner here during a recent stopover in Kansas City. The bbq here is fantastic. We had the large beef bones for lunch and for dinner the next day we had cheesy corn, ribs and burnt ends. All were excellent. You should also order some of the locally brewed "Boulevard" beer with the bbq.

The service staff is friendly and efficient. It can get a little noisy in the open area dining room but the full menu is available in the lounge where it is a bit less bustling.

We will return to Jack Stack's when we are in Kansas City again.
