Had the BBQ pulled pork, chicken and the chipotle sausage. (they had run out of the ribs.) Pulled pork and the chicken were very tasty and provided an ample amount of food. The sausage was not as good. The beans were in a watery sauce instead of a thicker more savory sauce. Good beer selection, especially of local beers. Service was timely and food was delivered quickly. Big dining room that was a bit loud. Boxy restaurant with little sound absorbing features. Overall, the BBQ sauce was good, but I like Memphis BBQ sauce better.

Reviewed By danieloW7812SH

I don't pretend to be a bbq expert but I've eaten at a good number of bbq joints throughout the country, including hotbeds like NC and TX. This week my wife and I are visiting my son and daughter-in-law in Kansas City. We've been here before and have eaten, and enjoyed, bbq at some of the famous places like Arthur Bryant's and Kansas City Joe's. This week, as we were driving down the road, a wonderful smell wafted through the car. "McGonigle's" my son replied to the inevitable question. "We should eat there." So Saturday we took orders from the ladies (we had takeout menus already) and went to McGonigle's Market. There is a parking lot around the building. Out front, on one side, was a small vendor selling homemade salsas; a trailer, smoker and stacks of split hardwoods was on the other side. McGonigle's is an actual mom-and-pop size market with groceries, beer and wine, a bakery, a deli and a butcher counter staffed by friendly people. There are small paper menus for the bbq; order at the cashier. They don't sell everything every day, check their menu or website. Exit the market and walk to the trailer with your receipt. I must admit we didn't order a variety of items: 3 burnt end and 1 pulled pork sanwiches, waffle fries and baked beans. Sweet bbq sauce on 1 burnt ends, mixed sweet and spicy on the rest. There is a counter set up with pickles, sliced red onions, tomatoes and lettuce and an area with picnic tables. We brought our treasure home to eat. In my experience fries do not travel well and many restaurants I have visited do not make good fries period. The waffle fries were crisp and delicious. The baked beans used a wide variety of beans, from fava to navy along with chunks of pork in a wonderful sauce. The burnt end sandwich was delicious - tender chunks of beef in a sweet and spicy, but not hot, sauce on a soft roll. My daughter-in-law equally liked the pulled pork. I won't say it was the best I ever had but it is up there and frankly I like these little lesser known places. Judging by the parking lot alot of people know about McGonigle's. You should, too.

Johnny's BBQ

Reviewed By Harry R

I've been to the Olathe location several times, but ate here for the first time a couple weeks ago. Generally, I think all their food is very good. But this time, I got fries with my sandwich and was dipping them in the hot BBQ sauce and was disappointed with the sweet potato taste. Why would they cook the regular fries in the same vat as the sweet potato fries???? Well, here's the thing - they don't have sweet potato fries. It was the hot BBQ sauce giving them that flavor. It was the weirdest thing! The regular BBQ sauce was good and the fries by themselves were also good, so it was definitely the hot BBQ sauce giving it that flavor. Wonder if they mixed up the recipe or something... anyway I did not care for that sauce. The rest of it was good.

We have wanted to try this restaurant and decided to go during KC restaurant week. We got an early reservation (5:15p) as later ones were already taken. We were seated quickly. The atmosphere is nice, kind of upscale pub, lots of wood and a center bar area. Our server was very good (although other helpers seemed to lack training. ) The food was not as good a quality as we expected at this price point. The wedge salad was literally a quarter of a head of romaine still attached to the stalk, and they forgot the extra dressing we requested. The "burnt ends", while pretty tender and tasty, weren't burnt at all. The KC steak was perfectly cooked, but lacked flavor and was tough, like the quality of meat I can buy at the grocery store. Our drinks and appetizers arrived in a timely manner. However, two of our meals took forever (both were on the prix fixe menu. ) Apparently there was a mixup in the kitchen, and they compted one of our meals. But probably won't go back as there are many better choices nearby.

Stopped by on our way around town after running around town all day. I went in without having ordered ahead and expected to wait for 15-20 minutes to get my order. I was promptly helped at the bar and ordered my food. The waitress was very helpful and got my order in and I had my food in approximately 7 minutes. The food itself was excellent. Burnt ends were the bomb! Had Mac and Cheese and Baked Beans for the sides and they were excellent as well. I would recommend this restaurant for anyone that wants some good local BBQ without the big chain feel.

Not only did we have a great time and a great meal, looking around the restaurant, everyone else seemed to be doing the same.

Jack Stack Barbecue - Overland Park

Reviewed By ChaseCarver

Great verity makes it hard to order even the staff recommendations were all over the menu from BBQ, Steaks, and Seafood. We went with the following. The prime rib was tough to cut with a knife but the au jus saved the plate. The burnt ends were good the meat lacked a unique Smokey flavor that I like. The sliced turkey had me seeing lunchables. The creamy cheese corn was a let down. Slaw was average and the beans saved the sides. Overall mediocre at best. Hi ChaseCarver! Thank you for taking the time to leave a review. Sounds like we left something to be desired during your last visit. If you're open to it, we'd like an opportunity to make this right for you! We've escalated this review to our Overland Park Restaurant team. Please send us a direct message with your email address and phone number and a manager from the Overland Park location will reach out to you to coordinate next steps. We hope to hear from you soon!
