"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.

    Three former colleagues got together to reminisce and catch up. The greeter/host could not have been friendlier or more accommodating. The server was attentive and one jump ahead on refreshing drinks and putting in a carry out for one of us to take home to a spouse. The food, including a burnt end stew, a beef platter, a sandwich and sides, was excellent.

    I had 2 of my cousins and my son and daughter-in-law at Jack Stack for dinner. My cousins live in Indiana and had never been to Jack Stack. My son and daughter-in-law had eaten there and raved about it. I had my favorite the baby back ribs with beans and cheesy corn and highly recommended them. Everyone just loved the food and my cousin who lives close to the border of Indiana/Illinois told me it was the best barbecue he had ever had.

    Jack Stack was recommended to us. We don't live in the KC area and don't really know the place to go. We were not disappointed. The food was great, we were nicely surprised with the total on our bill and the service was great. Highly recommend Jack Stack but make sure you plan ahead. Using Open Table made it very easy!

    Great BBQ. We were able to avoid the line and wait by booking by OT before we left the house. Lamb ribs were tender and delicious. Blackberry grilled salmon excellent Brisket sandwich didn’t disappoint. Baked potato cook to a T. Generous servings. 5 fried mushrooms more than enough appetizer for three. Waiter was friendly and attentive. Even though the restaurant was packed when we came our food arrived quickly but not too quickly. Noise level when packed was high.

    Slowest service I’ve ever had there. Server did not include any BBQ sauce even after she confirmed which kind we wanted. Had been done eating for a long time and she still never acknowledged us. Had to call her over to ask for check. Table next to us was experiencing same thing. Server had been to another table multiple times without giving us or the other table any attention. Makes me not want to go back ever no matter how good the food is.

    We had family from Texas in town and wanted them to have real BBQ. Michael, our server, was excellent! We never had an empty glass, he was very attentive, and just pleasant to our whole group. Will definitely be back again.

    It was just okay. Ribs were kind of dry and bland. The bbq sauce was absolutely terrible. The fried mushrooms were great though. Wife’s steak was a little too rare. Our server was really nice and punctual. Speed of service was good. I won’t return but it was still nice to try something new.

    I appreciate that my reservation was held. I thought I had made the reservation in Martin City, but it was actually in OP. It was a birthday and anniversary celebration dinner so I really appreciated the extra effort extended on a Saturday evening. The service was great and personal. The food was outstanding as always.

    Service was fantastic. BBQ sauce was less then desirable. I can get a much better tasting sauce within a few miles of my house in OKC ok. The Turkey was thin slices and tasted like sandwich lunch meat. Brisket was ok but kind of dry. Can usually fix that with a good bbq sauce but not so much here. Just disappointed that we drove so far expecting “the best BBQ”. Not even close.

    It was a festive atmosphere for the Fourth of July! The Waitstaff staff was working very hard and were still able to keep a smile on their face. The grilled salmon salad was one of the best I’ve ever had.

    Absolutely perfect ribs; even better dry with sauce on the side. And a very good garden salad. My family has been eating at one or another of the Jack Stack restaurants for at least 25 years - maybe more.

    A group of 20+ people were eating in the side room of the restaurant. We were seated in the main dining room at a booth near the entrance to that room. It became a problem once they were done with dinner and spilled out into the main dining room to enjoy after dinner drinks and conversation. They were extremely loud and stood near our table. We told our server so he had the manager ask them to return to their room but to no avail. It was not an enjoyable dining experience.

    We entertained out of town guests Sumday night. Jack Stack is one of their “go-to’s” when they visit KC. Everything was as delicious as advertised. Personally, I’ve never been disappointed when enjoying Jack Stack. It’s a Kansas City institution, for certain!

    It was fair to marginal. Smaller portions, price increases, fatty crown rib. Service was excellent- good smiles, left the 20+% tip as expected but will seriously reconsider dining out here again.

    We were visiting Kansas for a wedding. I am so thankful I made a reservation. It was Father’s Day so I thought it might be busy. We arrived about 15 minutes before our reservation time. They sat us a few minutes before our reservation time. The food was absolutely delicious. If we ever make it out this way agin we will definitely eat there again.
