Nicest of the four places we visited during four stop BBQ tour. Had a slab of ribs which were good but may have been over cooked a bit. Good but were fourth best when compared to other places we tried. Secondly we tried a rib sampler that had lamb ribs which were ok but not great. One beef rib that the restaurant raved about and so did the waiter but we thought it was very greasy. The other ribs were two baby back and two spare. Nice place to go if you want a nicer place but we prefer the more rustic authentic BBQ place.

Thank Gregg P

It may sound terrible, but burnt ends are fantastic ! they're not burnt-its just a name. Great service & atmosphere. Great BBQ , beans and the soup !

We loved the crown ribs, spinach salad with strawberries & a light dressing. The service was great, we sat outside on a beautiful spring day & watched the trains go by. We eve had ribs packed to take to MN.

In Omaha we do not have good BBQ like KC, sadly. Been to a few BBQ staples in KC, but Fiorella's Jack Stack always pulls be back... Reasonable prices, amazing food, and good location for my visits to KC.

I highly recommend this place to friends/family every chance I get!

Jack's Stack is amazing; BBQ beef ends are amazing; and the salmon dip... EPIC!

We all know that Kansas City has the best barbecue - and while Jack Stack is not the absolute best BBQ in town, it's close. The added experience of the awesome restaurant and the variety on the menu make this the best single place to experience KC.
