Jack Stack Barbecue Freight HouseCreating and serving authentic Kansas City barbecue to give every guest a remarkable BBQ experience is Jack Stack's mission. Pursuing this mission has earned Jack Stack recognition as Kansas City's most popular barbecue restaurant. Nationally, Jack Stack ranks among America's Best Restaurants in the Zagat Survey and its BBQ is consistently among Zagat's highest-rated.
A Kansas City Institution
What has made Jack Stack BBQ authentically Kansas City? It began in 1957 when Russ Fiorella opened his first restaurant in the city, serving only a few items. Russ's son, Jack, helped run the business for 17 years and then opened his own place.
Jack and his wife, Delores, started using gourmet hickory wood and insisted on maintaining the tradition of cooking in a brick oven pit. They expanded their offerings and soon had the most extensive barbecue menu in the country. They also expanded their locations to four. But through it all, Jack Stack has kept its Kansas City style, with original rubs and sauces that say, "Welcome home, barbecue lovers."
Catering to Barbecue Fans
Jack Stack's full-service catering helps ensure that any event is a success - indoors or outdoors, no matter how elegant or informal. Our broad catering menu means there's something for everyone.

Absolutely delicious food, and one of the best, most personable bartenders in the city (Adam H.) The FreightHouse location has a great vibe and ambiance to it and you often spot celebrities in there who are in town for a concert, sporting event, or movie filming.
As an employee of the Metro, we hosted the International Bus Roadeo and APTA conference in KCMO a few weeks ago to approximately 1,000 visitors. We recommended Jack's Stack Freighthouse to many of the visitors because of its convenient downtown location close to the convention. Our visitors from all over USA and Canada raved about the food and the service. Thank you Jack Stack for maintaining your high standards and doing Kansas City proud!
I took two of my out-of-town guests who were looking for some "Kansas City barbeque!" They were thoroughly impressed! From the meaty ribs, to the creamy cheesy corn, to the most flavorful sauces... every aspect of our meal was just what they were hoping for!
