Barbecue
"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.

To stand out in the competitive KC barbecue scene of the mid 1970's, Jack and Delores, began cooking with Gourmet Hickory Wood and created the most extensive barbecue menu in the country. The menu included Certified Angus Beef steaks, tender chicken, award-winning lamb ribs, and mouth-watering sides like Hickory Pit Beans and Cheesy Corn Bake.

    Our waitress was outstanding! Super friendly and very helpful. It was our first time and we are from Ohio. She basically ordered for us! And she wasn't wrong! Wings for the app and ordered family style so we could have a bit of everything! Pulled pork was out of this world! And def get the burnt ends! Cheese potatoes and the cheesy corn! So so good!! Thinking about going back tonight! Lol

    First time with “real” BBQ. Must have the beef burnt ends. Corn bread was very yummy as well. Food came pretty fast and we food it great value for the money. Soda refills arrived before we even finished them. Staff was on top of things and had had that nice balance between being attentive without interrupting your meal.

    We had a reservation for 6 @ 11am when they open. There are a lot of restaurants that won’t seat you until everyone is there and if you are 5 mins. late, they will give your table away. We were not all there at 11 but they sat us anyway! Our server was so patient with us! Once we ordered, we got our food pretty fast and it was delicious!! I can’t say enough good things about the Freight House Jack Stack! Would highly recommend!

    The Entire experience was Amazing! I came in from out of town to enjoy dinner with friends and family, and everything from start to finish was easy and efficient. Setting up reservation was cake, and receiving email confirmation prior to our reservation was great to have. Once we arrived, we were seated immediately which was super awesome considering the crazy amount of business that was there. Our server was awesome and to see the teamwork from all team members to assist and help one another was great to see. We were taken care of by several servers ensuring our experience was the best. I appreciate the staff going above and beyond to make sure customers are comfortable and taken care of. Definitely will continue to come back and recommend to everyone I know!

    Fantastic dinner. My husband and I split a combo plate of baby backs, pulled pork and the nationally acclaimed lamb ribs. They split it on two plates, and even split our cheesy corn bake. It was all delish and plenty of the two of us

    Food was delicious- love the jalapeno cornbread - the smoked meats are unbelievable! And the chocolate cake is the best ever! Pamela was our server - she was so great and made our experience even better! Hats off to the 2 bartenders that helped us before we our reservation was ready. I didn't catch their names but one was a taller slender guy and one was a shorter gal with brown hair. Super great drinks and friendly service.

    Visiting for the weekend. Great atmosphere and ambience inside. We ate outside on the patio on a perfect weather night. Chris our server was remarkable - giving us friendly tips and making a great food recommendation, which we ordered and were 100% satisfied with. The burnt ends were amazing, as was the prime rib, the BBQ sauce, and the baked potato as well. Very good value as well. Highly highly recommend Jack's Stack.
