We enjoyed the overall experience for 2 and were scouting the restaurant for the possibility of dining for 5. The food was good but servings seemed smallish. Grilling at the table was fun but the grill was marginally big enough for 2. We decided that the accommodations would not be optimal for a table of 5.

About the restaurant
"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.

Food was all around really good. Nothing was bad or prepared wrong but nothing really stood out as excellent either. Overall a good place to go to get a good meal it seemed. Service was very good but it was also not extremely busy either. I would go back but suspect there are better to equal restaurants nearby to try first.

I have been to Buca plenty of times in the past but this was the first time I sat at the chefs table in the kitchen. What a very cool experience. The food was hot and fresh. Sitting in the kitchen you can’t get your food any faster from the pan to the table. The staff was great as well. If you go to this location park in the garage. There is an entrance right from the garage. Food is a plenty as it is served family style. Definitely will return.

About the restaurant
Since 1972, we’ve believed in quality ingredients, cooking from scratch and having fun. From our famous ‘Shrooms and Stuffed Chicken Breast to our unique burger blend and ahi tuna, we believe in celebrating the small things and that every moment deserves a toast in its honor. So grab a drink (perhaps our signature Long Island Iced Tea), enjoy some great conversation and let us serve you an excellent meal.

Our appetizer was the spinach with lavash bread and it was delicious! I had the salmon with the spaghetti squash, so good and my husband had the meatloaf which is the best he had ever had. The atmosphere was nice and our server was amazing! Love this restaurant! We eat there at least twice a month!!
