Kansas City’s Best Barbecue Joint

Jack Stack Barbecue

One of the best parts about living in our Kansas City apartments is enjoying some of the finest barbecue available. One such eatery is Jack Stack Barbecue. First, let’s look at the humble beginnings of this fantastic restaurant.

Jack Stack Barbecue Begins

With three locations in Kansas City, another in Overland Park, and one at Lee’s Summit, Jack Stack Barbecue has been a Missouri barbecue favorite for over sixty years.

It all began in 1957 when Russ Fiorella began Jack Stack Barbecue as a traditional storefront with a modest selection of just a few items. His eldest son Jack worked with his father until 1974 when he branched off to start a restaurant named Fiorella’s Jack Stack of Martin City. 

Standing Out, Serving, and Shipping Nationwide

Jack and his wife Delores began cooking gourmet meats over flavorful hickory wood to stand out from the competitive Kansas City barbecue scene during the seventies. Today, the third generation of the Fiorella family runs the largest, full-service wood cookery in the barbecue industry. Along with their five restaurant locations, Jack Stack also operates a catering company serving at events all over the country. Available online, their Nationwide Shipping division delivers BBQ products to almost anywhere in America.

Doorstep Delivery

For those diners living in Kansas City, food can be ordered directly from their website and delivered to your doorstep. This also includes the option of curbside carryout from a condensed menu that includes most of their restaurant’s favorite items:

  • Salads and sandwiches 
  • Beloved barbecue side dishes like hickory pit beans, creamy coleslaw, potato salad, cornbread, and more
  • Barbecued beef brisket, pulled pork, and burnt ends, a Kansas City classic
  • Seafood on Fridays with salmon selections and shrimp
  • Mom’s Carrot Cake Cupcakes are available for dessert 

As an added bonus, check out some other barbecue joints in this region that were featured on the Food Network’s Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
