"Highest-rated barbecue in the country!" - Zagat Survey

Jack Stack Barbecue originated in Kansas City in 1957, by Russ Fiorella in a traditional storefront barbecue, with a modest selection of 5 or 6 items. Jack Fiorella, the eldest son, worked with his father until 1974 when he decided to branch off and start Fiorella's Jack Stack of Martin City.

Food was excellent; plenty of staff although our waiter was a little inexperienced. Unusual in that our table was wobbly & according to our waiter could not be fixed.

Made reservation one day in advance. Easy to do and able to be done.
Table ready ahead of time, not crowded, so seated in quiet area.
Waited on promptly, waitress assisted with choice, explaining menu. Made ordering easy. Food brought promptly, good quantity and certainly very good quality.
Service during meal was excellent, provided all essentials and requests.
Noise level was low, conversation easy, did not notice any music which was a big PLUS.
An excellent meal, easy in and easy out. Five Star.

We enjoyed Jack Stack! There was no wait and they celebrated my husband’s birthday with a mini-carrot cake! Definitely will be returning because the atmosphere was beautiful and the food was excellent. Burnt ends and Chicken for me, and a pulled pork sandwich with beans for my husband. WE WILL BE RETURNING! Our waitress was amazing and we got our food hot and perfect!

We took our son in law for his bday bc it is his favorite BBQ place in KC. He had the Poor Russ, which is his favorite entree.
We had the amazing wings for an appetizer. Sometimes I order just those with sides for my dinner. Then we ordered the Round up which had ribs, brisket, pulled pork, turkey, pickled onions for us to share. Yum!

This is my go to BBQ restaurant in KC. Consistently is number one. They present competition BBQ time after time. Sides are excellent, onion rings and fried mushrooms are to brag about. I’ve eaten here for a long time and will continue. Oh bye the way, try the Bloody Mary, wow! Olives stuffed with meat, come on!!!

It was awesome as always, except they had us sat in a tiny corner behind a large party that we couldn’t fit through. You had to turn sideways and brush yo ur self up against another persons table to leave or go to that table. There was about 20 of us shoved in this tiny space. But the food was awesome, service was even better!!

What is an emergency exit for? Apparently at this location, it's a more convenient way to serve the people sitting outside than using the side door. Annoying? Absolutely!!! Every few minutes either a patron was being seated or a server was going in/out. When we were seated next to the emergency exit, how were we supposed to know that as soon as our food started to arrive ... the door would be constantly squeaking, the sunlight would be in our eyes, warm air would be rushing by, and we would want to rush through our anniversary meal just to get away from this place? Why is management allowing their staff to use this door to ruin their customer's enjoyment? Do better Jack Stack! You aren't some restaurant in a seedy area of town. We wasted over $100 at your restaurant, our memories of our experience there are tainted.

Will we recommend this location? Yes, but with a warning to steer clear of that side of the restaurant at all costs.

Our visit was just ok. Our first time going to the OP location, and we’ll go back to only visiting the Martin City location. We had reservations and were sat as soon as we arrived. We waited awhile to be greeted and then another server helping ours came to get drinks for us. They were out of the wine that I ordered, and it’s the only option they have on the menu. We placed our drink orders and our server came just as they hit the table. We asked about their different sauce options and if we could try them ahead of ordering. The waiter returned to our table to take our order and we just went with it. We were told they were also out of burnt ends. This is twice we have now tried to order something and get “we’re out of that.” One app was ordered along with two salads. At this time- a couple of our drinks were empty and sat that way for a little bit. Our salads and appetizer hit the table the exact same time our dinner did. At this point- I’d about had enough. It’s so frustrating! I hate places that do this and the only way to control it is to refuse to order until the apps/salads make it to the table. Now with all the dinner plates along with the salads and apps on the table- we didn’t even have room to do anything. Constantly shuffling around trying to make room. Irritating for sure. By the time we finished our salads, my dinner plate was about 1/2 cold. Not once did any of them offer to take our plates back to allow us time to work through our order as it should have been. And by now- we just wanted to eat and get out of there. Again, at this point drinks on the table are empty again. Food overall was pretty good, but not their best. The beef burnt ends are not nearly as good as the pork and the pork is what they were out of…. Our waiter was catering to a large party we were sat next to, and once things started to go downhill for us- I feel like he avoided our table a bit. Did just enough, and we paid the bill and left. Again, it all could have been better.
