There have been so many new businesses popping up in Waldo this year: Tropical Sno Cone, Second Best Coffee, Kansas City Bier Company, Pizza Manifesto –and Waldo/Brookside residents love to support locally owned businesses. I recently stopped at The Stack restaurant, 8920 Wornall Road, to satisfy a barbecue craving. It reopened in April, and has seen a steady stream of customers since then.
BBQ is a an easy topic of discussion for KC residents–everyone has their favorite. The Stack holds it’s own with the big guys (Oklahoma Joe’s, Jack Stack and Gates). The restaurant is very casual, service is fast and friendly, and the portions are generous. I’ve tried the ribs and the burnt ends–both very tasty and tender. My daughter and I split the Stack Slab Platter and had enough left over for another meal!
You’ll find a variety of appetizers here too: fresh-sliced onion rings, BBQ potato skins, pig skin poppers and wings. Partner Jeff Hallier told me they are also experimenting with a sausage stuffed pork loin, a special bread pudding dessert, and want to add fish options on the weekends. Right now you can only purchase bottled beer, but Jeff is already planning an expansion to include a full bar, hopefully by the time football season kicks off. The Stack also offers nightly specials, a catering menu and plenty of parking in front of the restaurant.
The next time you get a craving for BBQ–stop in The Stack. It’s open Tuesday through Sunday at 10am. Thank you for supporting locally owned Waldo businesses!
