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.

    As locals, best barbecue in town. Always consistently excellent! The chicken is best anywhere, so moist and delicious! Wait staff friendly yet professional. Only place to go for barbq for our money.

    All of the food here is AMAZING! You have to get the carrot cake, by far the best dessert ever.

    Had a reservation for later, but showed up earlier and found seats at the bar. Were superbly served by veteran bartenders. Split the three-meat sampler; substituted baked beans for French fries. All was superb! We have visited several times over several years and have always been pleased. The Freighthouse by Union Station has a great atmosphere.

    Food was marginal. The smoked turkey was from a processed turkey roll, not real turkey-a cardinal sin for what is supposedly a top KC barbecue restaurant. The brisket was bland and tasteless. No bbq sauces at the table to choose from. I’ve traveled the country and been to some of its best barbecue restaurants. This one was mediocre at best.

    Our service was amazing! We had a party of 13 and they put us in a separate room that was very intimate. We were able to really talk and enjoy each other and great food!
