You'll have to wait your turn, Jack Stack is that popular. The wait's worthwhile, however, once you get seated and the meal arrives. Great Kansas City BBQ. The burnt ends are particularly good.

This is an example of great KC BBQ. There are no wrong choices here-everything is amazing. Sauce is on the sweeter end of the scale but they have multiple varieties. It's housed in a rambling older building with lots of character. Service is always good.

The review I wrote earlier was actually about this location, but I guess I goofed. The Jack Stack at the CC Plaza location is the newest and also has really good food, but I don't know if they have the white bean chili and/or the gumbo that I love so much. The Martin City location is usually packed and I... More

We've been there twice and I guess the food is okay, the service was okay but we did not care for the atmosphere at all. It seemed old and dusty which some people will enjoy, but we don't.

Personally, I don't think it's fair to rate a restaurant until after your 2nd or 3rd visit. This especially goes for barbecue, where even the most esteemed restaurants can have off days. That said, I've eaten at Jack Stack in Martin City at least 30 times (about 50-50 split between dine-in and takeout) and while it's a bit pricier than... More

We had dinner Saturday night. Mushrooms were great... The prime rib and filets are to die for.... And chocolate brownie for dessert. The place was packed, as always, but it was nice enough to sit on the patio and have drinks..... I love jack stacks!

I know everyone raves about their BBQ & it IS great but that broccoli was the star for me! And I don't even like broccoli that much! They also serve a huge delicious baked potato & the best baked beans I ever ate! We knew it was going to be delicious good eats because the parking lot was packed &... More

The food was good but very expensive relative to the other local BBQ places. Most BBQ places in Kansas City MO serve Burnt Ends, on this particular day during this particular time, the Burnt Ends at Jack Stacks was too dry. It was almost like they left them on the grill too long. The beef ribs were also very good.... More

Arguably the best BBQ in Kansas City. Nice sit-down restaurant. Excellent service from an attentive staff. My favorite side is the cheesy corn. Be prepared to spend a little more but, it's worth it. NOT a fast food joint, fine dining.
