"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.

With the Open Table reservation, the wait for our table was non-existent. The food, service and ambiance was terrific. Parking space can be a bit of a challenge, but certainly not a deal-breaker. Overall, our party of five was completely satisfied with the evening.

We were promptly seated when we arrived for our reservation. The waitress came right over and took our order. She was always stopping by to make sure our drinks were full and that our food was satisfactory. A wonderful dining experience and our out of town guests were also very impressed!

Service wasn’t as good as last time they were pretty busy though but we still had a great time with our family and food was awesome! The people bringing the food were kind of rude like we were annoying them. But was only brief encounter with the 2 ladies. Appetizers came and not too long after food was brought out so we had a lot of plates and needed to move stuff around. Overall was a good experience well worth the 240 we spent

Jack Stack has some of the best burnt ends in KC. It's hard to say "best overall" because KC has so many great restaurants. But every time I go to Jack Stack, I order the burnt ends and have never been disappointed! We ordered the burnt end platter for two and went home with food. Totally worth it. While you're there, be sure to try the carrot cake. It's simply divine!
