Being from KC this is one of the top places to get BBQ. I get the bake beans and burnt ends and fries every time. Have tried a rib, I may have to switch next visit, it was fabulous. If you try it you will be back

We stopped in for a light meal. Boy were we wrong The salmon dip and burnt ends were delicious. Jesse and Brian went out of their way to take care of my wife's gluten allergy. Very little was off the menu. I can not wait to come back to KC to visit the river walk area and dine here again

This is definitely going to be a repeat for me. I wish I took a pic of my food. Come Hungry Leave Happy. Everyone said their food was great, we had a group of 21.

We've been to Jack Stack a couple of times and have always enjoyed it. The bar-b-que is really good, try the pulled pork and beef tips! It's a bit more upscale but we took our 13yr old and and never felt out of place. Service was very good but be aware it gets VERY busy!

This is my second favorite bbq in KC. The meat had a such a fabulous smoky flavor that I didn't use any of the 3 sauces! I'm not really a rib fan, fan( usually too messy and too much work for me) but had to try these and they were the best I've ever had....fall off the bone perfection. Also... More

Third time eating at this restaurant and each time it's better than before. I brag to friends about it so each time we fly in from Carolina it's a must visit. I should get paid for steering my friends to this place.....everyone always raves about it and we talk about how good it is for months after our visit! Love... More

While not the best of Kansas City's barbecue restaurants, they always do an excellent job. The overall experience would have a wide appeal and certainly would be tip top in any other city. Service is great, food is very good!

I've been to Jack Stack at least a half dozen times. I go here almost every time I go to Kansas City. This place is hands-down the best barbecue in Kansas City. I've been to the freight house, Overland Park, and the plaza. I like them all. Only crazy people would tell you that Arthur Bryants, Oklahoma Joe's, or Gates... More

First time at this location but quality was very good. Nice place, relaxed atmosphere and most importantly great barbecue. Had the baby back ribs and they were the best I have ever had anywhere. Service was good and price per value is top notch.

Thank Jmackh
