A true family favorite and hallmark of the Kansas City dining community! Great location near Arts District/Crown Center/Union Station. Arguably the finest barbecue in Kansas City coupled with great service and beautiful rustic Freighthouse ambience. A WOW experience!!

Been a fan of jack stacks for a few visits and this one did not disappoint. A little more upscale than some of the more traditional places. Burnt ends are the best!

It was a great place to eat. Burnt ends, veggie kabobs and Jalapeño cornbread are great picks! Our waiter David provided exemplary service. Great overall experience!

I'm giving them a 5 because the food, hosts, and table service were excellent. The bar service was only OK.
