I thought the barbecue here was pretty good but some of the food came out cold. The star of the meal was the sides. Their mac and cheese and the beans are really good. The price is on the high side.

After reading reviews I was expecting more. Food was all good, but nothing special. Was disappointed to find out they do not make their own potato salad. Unfortunately I found a rock in my potato salad. Manager took care of my meal but certainly made me rethink dining there. Would not go back or recommend.

While there is plenty of terrific BBQ to be had in the Kansas City area, Jack Stack sets the bar. With its fall-off-the-bone ribs, its tender morsel burnt ends, and its meat-laden baked beans, it's a stop not to be missed if you want to be sure you've had the very best of KC barbecue.

We pop into JSBBQ a couple of times per month. Their food is good, not great and their prices are a little high. You get a good amount of food and their service is always very good. Head toward a table near the bar to avoid a wait. Their waiting area is too small and their hostesses are rarely friendly.

We had a busy day and ordering take out for after the show looked like the best idea. We ordered the Roundup under the enough 'cue for two section. It was very good as usual and there was plenty of food.

Some out of state colleagues wanted to eat BBQ and I recommended several local BBQ joints. For proximity they chose Jack Stack. We sat in the bar, which was noisy. Our server offered up suggestions and explained different items and ordering ideas. She was slow on refills and 2nd beers. My salmon was overdone and dry. My colleagues were quite... More

Awesome BBQ!!! Baby pork ribs are the best ever! Broccoli is great, too. Lunch portions are huge (too big for me).

The food is fantastic. The beans are the best anywhere hands down. Cooked perfectly with burnt ends in them. All the meats are tender. They have a dish called "Cheesy Corn" that is to die for. They let you substitute the French fries (which are great but why get fries you can get those anywhere) for beans or cheesy corn.... More

Jack Stack BBQ is a staple of BBQ in the area and any visitor to the area should try it. The food is tasty. The BBQ itself is pretty good with a good smoke taste and a molasses-based sauce that comes in two styles - good and hot. But the side dishes are better. The BBQ beans and cheesy corn... More
