Re: “Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue

I tried out this place called Jack Stack BBQ a little while back, It was on the Plaza in Kansas City. I wanted to try it because it is supposedly the #1 rated BBQ in Kc according to the Zagat's survey. From the outside the aroma was good, it smelled like smokin meat so that was a plus. On the inside the aroma was stronger and making my mouth water, the ambiance was nice, almost kinda upscale, but very loud, you almost had to yell across the table, it was a saturday night so they were very busy. I ordered the premium small end spare ribs ($15.50), and was very disappointed, there wasnt much flavor, NO noticeable smoke ring, and it was like they didn't put any rub on them, they definetly didn't pull the membrane either which really surprised me. Overall they were tender, but not as good as the ones I make at home. I was also disappointed by their sauce....it looked like a tomato based sauce, but once again VERY tasteless! I also has a side of baked beans which were just "ok" but nothing special! The prices are kind of on the high side, but I do have to say they have a very wide assortment of different meats... They have things like Lamb ribs, Crown prime beef short ribs, New Zealand rack of lamb, Beef back slab, and of course pork spares and baby back. They also have steaks, seafood, etc. I scored this place low because I felt it should have been much better, especially for the price and the #1 rating. I know in KC I can get some awesome BBQ, just not at this place.
