    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!!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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."

    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?

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    the loaded baked potato was amazing! rolled in sea salt and topped with bacon and shredded cheddar, well worth swapping your two sides for.
