Consistent quality for more than five decades and a diverse menu are two great reasons to visit Jack Stack Barbecue. Tasty and tender meats cooked over hickory wood include popular burnt ends and ribs. For something different, try their nationally-acclaimed Lamb Ribs, trout entrees or vegetable kabob. Sandwich lovers can choose from beef brisket, roasted ham, smoked turkey or pork and Polish Sausage, while specialty soups, available on set days, include hearty Wood-Fired Chicken & Sausage Gumbo or savory Burnt End Stew. Cheesy Corn Bake, Cajun-spiced barbecue shrimp appetizer, hearty Hickory Pit Beans and Mom's Carrot Cake also get kudos. So do the polite and knowledgeable servers. With 25-foot ceilings, antique brick, natural wood and rustic décor accents, the upscale Freight House location offers the added cache of operating in a historical Kansas City building near Union Station. Gluten-free options are also available, on request.
- Barbecue: "Enjoy generous 7-ounce wine pours from an expansive menu with individual glasses starting at $6. There are numerous selections from California as well as an Oregon Pinot Noir; several Argentine Malbecs; Italian sparkling wine, and several white wine selections; and Sauvignon Blanc from New Zealand."
- Best for Barbecue Because: Under $7, Kids' Meals include pork rib dinners, fried chicken tenders, or grilled ham and cheese, plus a side and a drink.
