    Best Kansas City BBQ if you want to have a nice sit down dining experience. Beef and ribs are stars but the cheesy corn is a great side and they have a surprise star in their carrot cake.

    Sat at the bar for dinner and was served by Jed. The service was great and he really helped us pick some delicious food. The burnt pork & beef tips are amazing! The cheesy corn is a must try!!

    Just moved to KC and everyone keeps telling me to eat BBQ. So I stop in, get the KC Combo (burnt ends and lamb ribs), wow words can't describe the goodness. The meat melted right off the rib. GO NOW.

    Get the Crown Prime Beef Rib appetizer as a meal - One well-marbled Beef Short Rib. Smoked until fork-tender and truly melts in your mouth. Not many other BBQ joints have something like this.

    Kansascitians shouldn't say this is the best BBQ in town. BUT if you need a formal place to take a client or visitor for dinner/lunch, and they want BBQ- this is about all you got. Amiright?

    Amazing BBQ place! I had baby back ribs and I can say they were among the best I have ever had! The baked beans were delicious.They also offer local beer from a brewery from just around the corner.

    In my opinion this is the best barbecue in Kansas City, Mo. the quality of their meat is superb. It's a rib joint that is able to keep up the looks and feel of a fine dining experience.

    I head to the bar to avoid the lines. Go with burnt ends, brisket, and ribs you'll be in heaven. The cheesy corn is well made too, although I'm a Texan so it's a new food to me.

    Service for a party of 12 lacked. But, the pork ribs were fantastic. You could taste the fire & smoke. Definitely try the beans. I could do those and their baked potatoes any day! Great wine selection

    AWESOME sit-down place w/ server. Got Jack's Best (a sampler). CROWNE PRIME BEEF RIBS ARE AMAZING! I would order just those ribs next time. Baked beans and corn were just okay. Fries were average.

    Anthony Bourdain used words like "family-friendly" and "excellent" to describe this torchbearer of KC’s modern barbecue movement. If you're real hungry, try the Flintstone-sized crown prime beef ribs.

    Mouthwatering, flavorful, and unique dishes. Cannot go wrong with anything you order. BUT if I may insist, try the grilled chicken (add some shrimp) and you will know heaven.

    Great spot for high quality BBQ with a wide menu. Onion rings are huge and awesome starter. BBQ is solid, beans are average, and carrot cake is to die for.

    Food blogger Rita of Surrender Dorothy recommends Fiorella's Jack Stack. "Vegetarians will rejoice at Fiorella’s, where vegetable kebabs and barbecued trout are just as tasty as the usual favorites."

    Again my mind is a whirl trying to decide on my favorite BBQ spot in this town. Fiorella's is a strong contender, upscale dining experience with some phenomenal burnt ends.

    Plate of beef ribs was delicious and huge! You get two sides, the cheesy corn bread is a must (texture of mac n cheese). So much food you do *not* need an app.

    If it's your first time doing KC BBQ, do yourself a favor and get The Sampler. Burnt ends, ribs, and meat galore. Also, cheesy corn is a must.

    Found this place by googling good restaurants in KC. The food was amazing! My favorite by far was the cheesy corn bake side. Gotta find that recipe!

    Jack Stack is barbecue for sit-down types, but it's still barbecue. Known for its ribs, cheesy corn bake, classy atmosphere and beans. Priced a little higher than other places, but it will impress.

    They were a family battle back in the day - Martin City to Op - well, the deal went down and the big opportunity can ship KC BBQ!!! Decent ribs, great burnt ends.

    A true KC icon. What locals call businessman BBQ. Location and ambience is great for out of towners. Believe the hype of three cheesy corn. It's life changing.

    Make the trip - get the "Dinner for Two" (RIBS!) with cheesy potatoes, baked beans and corn pudding stuff, you won't be sorry and its the right price for how great it is!

    Huge onion rings (a single one is about half an onion). Big Pig sandwich is delicious. Boulevard beers on tap, of course. Expect to wait.

    Dont come for the food, as it's not the best BBQ in KC. BUT do come for the upscale dining ambiance (seating, lighting, design and staff).

    Exceptional ribs and burnt ends. Try Martin City Mayor sandwich--chopped burnt ends on bun topped with coleslaw.

    Burnt ends is the thing to go for with the cheesy corn. Book in advance or wait or eat at the bar

    Almost not fair to compare to other BBQ joints - this is a high-class BBQ joint. I love Jack Stack, but it's a totally different experience than others.

    Good gluten free support. Severs are knowledgeable and most of the basic dishes are GF with a small change on the butter used.

    Carrot cake is awesome, but be warned that most of their food (even beans & veggies) is heavily dosed with MSG. If you're allergic like me it's a bummer.

    Can't visit Kansas City without having some BBQ and you might as well eat it here. Very large and barely lit dining room.
