Our latest foray into the world of BBQ took us first to Kansas City, MO, and Jack Stack in Martin City. Ambience: large and comfortable, with an exceptionally friendly staff. But it's easy to be amiable when you know your product is first-rate. And Jack Stack lives up to its high reputation. The onion rings are fantastic, the baked beans... More

All the Jack Stack's around KC are good, but Martin City seems to have that little something extra that makes it my favorite. Start with a rack of Onion Rings or some... More

Best Burnt ends and beans are a meal in themselves. BBQ shrimp appetizer is to die for w/ remoulade sauce a perfect match to BBQ spice. Also have lamb ribs This is gourmet fast food at its best.

Kansas City is world-famous for its barbecue restaurants, but this one tops the list in our opinion. The food and atmosphere are simply first-rate! The meats are fabulous and the combinations are numerous. This charming and quaint restaurant gets... More

We started with Smokin' Mary's and this was one of the best bloody Mary's ever. The olives were stuffed with burnt ends! Then I the pork rib platter and these ribs were incredible! I smoke ribs at home and mine are excellent. But these were off the charts good. The sides of beans and slaw were excellent as well. I... More

My wife and I ordered from the take out menu of this restaurant while we were visiting in the area. She ordered the sliced meat platter, and I ordered the burnt ends platter. The food was excellent, and had a wonderful smoked flavor. I truly recommend the burnt ends for anyone who like BBQ; it's classic. Next time, we might... More
