"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.

We are from Salt Lake City. Anytime we are in the Kansas City area, Jack Stack BBQ is a must!!! On a busy Saturday night, our reservation was at 7:30, we were seated at 7:15. Our waitress made sure we had water & lemonade almost before our glasses were empty on the table. Burnt ends, Mac & cheese & carrot cake were all served warm! So good, we almost liked the plates!

Our party of 3 arrived early on a Monday afternoon at Jack Stack on Metcalf and 95th Street. Even though there were empty tables, the hostess would not seat us until the time of our reservation, so we sat at a table in the bar area. Our waitress was very professional and attentive to our status. I ordered the "Burnt End Special" which was advertised on the email mailing list and ordered additional side of sausage burnt ends; there can never be too many burnt ends. The beef burnt ends had way too many pieces of fat in the serving; not good. The sausage burnt ends were perfect. We have ordered a lot of carry-out and enjoyed many good meals at the Overland Park, but my personal opinion is the Martin City, Cross Roads and Lee's Summit Jack Stack operations have better food. I will continue to enjoy Jack Stack but avoid the beef burnt ends.

They were out of all their chicken and beef except brisket, which I specifically went there for beef ribs. There was an apology BUT no offer for compensation. I was even denied my request to have one of the starters as a replacement for both of my sides. It was my expectation, as an experienced customer service representative, that there was a better way to handle this challenge where we everyone would have benefited. But as it stands, and for the lack of empathy and sensitivity, I will NOT be back to that location and will think twice before even going to any Jack Stacks again, even though the food and the waiter, Clayton, were excellent!!

The burnt ends were cubed pieces of fat with very little meat. Hardly the burnt ends I remember so we'll from Jack Stack. They discontinued the French Dip which was otherworldly. The sides are still wonderful but I didn't see baked beans on the menu either. Definitely noticed the changes.
