I LOVE BBQ...but I do have to confess that I am more of a Texas BBQ type guy. So I went to Jack Stack because it was ranked the best in KC when I went. I have to say that my expectations were high! Well,...More

Best BBQ I've ever eaten!! The burnt ends are a stomach filler and are a must have! Also the jumbo with pulled pork and beef brisket is amazing!! And always say yes to the extra sauce:)

We visited because of the trip advisor reviews. This was the first time I've been disappointed in a highly reviewed restaurant. The service was average and so was the food. My husband had previously visited a different location and had good things to say.

The food was great! The building is very cool. We went with a group of 12. It was a fun place to be, but it's loud. A little difficult to talk, but we managed. The service was excellent! They really took care of us. I'd...More
