This had great service and great food. Get there early to avoid the crowds or you definitely need a reservation. The Bar-B-Que Sampler was superb and the salmon was also excellent.

Have been to KC and the plaza numerous times. For BBQ, has always gone to the famous Arthur Bryant's. Because of a performance at the starlight theater, decided to have dinner at Jack Stack. It was awesome... From the moment we walked in, the atmosphere was very welcoming, staff were courteous, friendly and knowledgeable... And the food was outstanding! The baby back ribs were fantastic, the house chili fabulous... We'll be back!

This Jack Stacks seems moderately crowded during meal times. I ordered the salmon sandwich and received a large filet of salmon on a wheat bun with onions, lettuce, tomatoes, and a side sauce. It was a large sandwich and I couldn't finish it all! The taste of the salmon was very delicious and rich. Excellent.

Service was quick and efficient. We went in slightly before dinner time and the restaurant started getting busier as we were there. It's really good barbecue and gets a thumbs up from my barbecue aficionado father.

This could have been a better review but for the wait. The said 30 - 40 Min and it turned into an hour and 40 Min. No explanation and not real apologetic about it. Other than that the food is good, the beer is cold and service was good. Not cheap by any means and very loud in the dining room. Had an overall good time, just wish they had let us know how long the wait really was.

We visited five different BBQ restaurants during a five day stay in Kansas City. This was our favorite. Big portions and very good food. We really enjoyed the lamb ribs and burnt ends. Both were fantastic. The beef ribs were also amazing. I could go on and on. Great drink selection including a wide variety of Boulevard Brewing draft beer. Great service - great time!
