Our server was terrific. We had great food but we had an additional person join us above our reservation. When we got to the restaurant, I went and told the hostess that we were there, but that we had one additional person I was not counting on arrive. I understand that this makes her job more difficult and concede that point; however, she was very "put out" by it and even rolled her eyes at my daughter. She was clear that we were imposing and asking a lot from her. Yes, they accommodated our request after waiting a few minutes, and that is much appreciated. I just didn't anticipate the drama and the lack of class by the front desk. Other than that, everything was good.

Kansas City is renowned for barbeque and we have had barbeque all over this city. Jack Stack is by far the best barbeque in Kansas City!!! The meat falls right off the bone and it's so tender it melts in your mouth. And the flavor - absolutely magnificent!!!

Great experience! We made reservations 4 days in advance. We went early to have drinks at the bar - lots of room, despite the restaurant being full. We were told they had us checked in, but would not be able seat us early because of the crowd - no problem for us! Regardless, they were able to seat us 15 minutes early and the service was perfect! The BBQ is always great. I ordered a full slab of ribs, but took home 2/3rds of that. My wife had smoked salmon, my buddy had the KC Strip and his wife had pulled pork. We all loved the evening. Highly recommend!

We did the call ahead seating, but still had to wait nearly an hour. Food was really good. The carrot cake is possibly the best in the area!
Place has a great feel to it, kind of cozy. Staff was very nice. Went out of their way while serving, and apologized for the wait.

Visiting KC for the first time, JackStack was highly recommended. Service was fast and the food was a great value. Only critiques is I wasn't a fan of how thin the brisket is sliced and I noticed the membrane wasn't removed from my ribs (Although I know some prefer this to help hold the meat together so that is simply my own humble opinion). But overall it was great. Really enjoyed getting a great taste of KCBBQ

The food was just average. We did not like the cheesy corn at all. It tasted like powdered cheese. The cheesy potato casserole and jalapeño corn bread were the best items in our opinions.

Very busy place. Food was very good. Ordered a take home side of beans and slaw, they were very small, smaller than what we were served. Didn't understand that, since we were charged the full price.

My main complaint was they forgot my salad and it did not arrive until my meal was half done. Other than that, loved being able to make a reservation and the food was delicious.

It felt like coming home! And not as crowded which I appreciated.

Me and my Son came here for the prime rib dinner. Again outstanding food and exceptional service from all the staff. I had mine seared a little and I believe it was the best prime rib in America. My son had Jacks best a great choice always. The server was very inventive we were so comfortable and everything on the menu was full of flavor. This is our Favorite restaurant in Kansas City area.
Thanks Again Jack Stack.
