I have gone to Jack stacks many times with my son and daughter in law. The food is always good and service excellent. Over the last year it is my favorite place for BBQ.

We wanted to experience Kansas City BBQ at it's best. What we got was average BBQ from a hurried waitress. Don't get me wrong the service was polite but rather hurried and not overly happy. The ribs we ordered were supposed to be a leaner set but came with a lot of cartilage bits and gristle. The meat was good... More

We have been here twice in our visits to KC. Both times we have split some of the sampler platters. They serve a ton of food. The sausage, brisket, pork ribs are all awesome. I highly recommend the pork Burnt Ends! Yummy!!! Husband tried the prime rib - ribs - very rich - similar to roast beef. For the appetizers... More

This isn't your typical counter service barbecue joint. Expect to spend more as well. That said, the food is good. We really enjoyed the rib variety platter. Enjoyed the meat and sauces. Sides are great as well. Service was excellent.

Our son was getting married downtown KCMO so we set up the rehearsal dinner at Jack Stack in the Crossroads. We had over 30 diners filled with expectations, most from out of town. The restaurant was in top form, private room, music, sound system, private bar who kept accurate tally, and the best Bar-b-que in the city. Everyone had a... More

Jack Stack is one of the stalwarts of the local BBQ scene. The quality has remained strong and their approach has stayed true to traditional KC BBQ customs. By the way, the even more traditional joints are headed down a sliding scale of quality. Modern methods have gone gourmet but the old school is still serving up 1930's style soot-kissed... More

While BBQ preference can be a near religious experience, my preference is Jack Stack. They have a sweet BBQ as well as a hot BBQ sauce. Their meat selection is outstanding, and they have the best side dishes in the city.

It's not overrated - it's that good. We spent a day in KC/Overland Park, and stopped here for dinner. Just delicious - and my daughter who doesn't want red meat or BBQ was delighted with the salmon dip appetizer and grilled chicken entree. If haven't been to a Jack Stack yet, get yourself there!!

Jack Stack is the best place for ribs in Kansas City. We get carry out for lunch at work so dining in is even better. And the BBQ beans are excellent too.
