Lamb ribs, bins, corn, coleslaw are very very tasty. I ordered signature meal and it was exactly as described on the back page of the menu. Very good place!

We went with a couple and went to the bar to wait for our table. The bar tenders were pretty good. I got a strawberry lemonade - nice drink choice. One got a mixed drink while the others got beer. We didn't wait too long for a table. This is where I thought things went to so-so. The waiter was... More

I come to Kansas City / Overland Park for business. I work really hard to eat here at least once. The barbeque is great. The wings are the best I've ever had.

Landed at MCI and my first meal of a recent trip was Jack Stack. It was 3 p.m. on a Thursday and the place was still hopping. We ordered two combos and had more than enough food. Loved the thin, velvety brisket, Baby Back ribs, cole slaw, giant loaded baked potato, pulled pork. And all of it was just as... More

This BBQ is the best KC has to offer. I have been everywhere in KC, and I know some will argue with me, but the sauce here, along with the tender meat, is the best anywhere in the KC Metro area. The BBQ beans are to die for, and the fried mushroom caps are huge and excellent. You cannot say... More

For the past several years, my family orders take out from the Freight House Jack Stack. It's what we do for our Christmas Eve get together. We love their menu and always get some Poor Russ, their version of Kansas City "burnt ends". The quality is consistently excellent, the staff has always been the hardest working group imaginable. To write... More

I eat here often for business and pleasure. Eat in the bar area and there is a large fireplace and seats in a old historic building. The Service by Laura was fantastic as we enjoyed Burnt Ends and The Prime Rib Sandwich. My opinion, best of the Jack Stack's in the area.
