Great place to take clients/family/friends when on the south side of town. The Q is always top notch and there has never been a service issue! It's a KC BBQ must do!

I have been a customer of Jack's Stack for many years. It has always had a superior serving staff, cooks and management. Every menu item that I have tried had always met or exceeding my expectations. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone that wants some good service, outstanding BBQ, and an enjoyable time. The owners and management have more... More

A Kansas City tradition--the original location. Awesome onion rings! Best beans in town! I've been there many times and everything on the menu is good. My favorites--burnt ends, brisket, ribs, cheesy corn and the cole slaw.

I have lived in KC all my life. Jack Stack BBQ does not disappoint. Plenty of choices to choose from choose. I choose a beef sanwich or prime rib sanwich. They are both fantastic so you can not go wrong. If you like or love prime ribe, try the prime rib.

Great BBQ restaurant in a unique area of town! Offering some of the same menu items as the one in the Freight House. Have to try their signature 'cheesy corn' it's delicious!

Fabulous sums it up!! The ribs were tender, seasoned expertly and not dry! We had the signature rib dinners, 2 beers, 2 crown coke and bread pudding to go. $112 before tip. Atmosphere very upscale casual and cozy. Excellent service! Coleslaw, cheesy corn and beans were very good.

Great place for barbecue in a out of the way place. You can tell the food is good by the crowds in the parking lot in this very south part of Kansas City. Try one of my favs the Martin City Mayor sandwich.

I enjoyed the brisket during our dinner at Jack Stack and another individual said the barbequed chicken was good. During this meal I realized that Kansas City ribs are different than those that I've had in the South. Several individuals who I was dining with were raving about the ribs, but you could hardly get the meat off the bone... More

If you are looking for the best of the best...in terms of B.B. Ribs...then this is your spot. Brave the lines and crowds and spread out parking lot and it is worth the wait. Lunch dinner or to go... this BBQ place is the main location and seems to have retained the best "smokers"!

Thank Bob A
