My friends have been raving about this place since I got off the plane. Needless to say, I was super excited to try it.

The time came when we arrived on a Friday night around 7:30pm. The wait was about 45 minutes, which wasn't a big deal since there were couple of open seats at the bar and sports on tv to entertain.

The service all around from getting a buzzer for seating to our waiter being super awesome, I give thumbs up for service.

Finally, we were seated and let the eating begin! We started with chicken wings. Then one friend ordered beef/bacon/onion ring sandwich. My other friend and I shared a full order of beef ribs with 3 sides (potato salad, cheesy corn, and baked beans.)

Perhaps our eyes were bigger than our stomach because the full order of the ribs were barely touched after 2 each. The flavors were really deep into the meat and the sides were super tasty especially the cheesy corn, there were even ham/bacon bits mixed in, and the baked beans went really well with the meat. Not to mention the original and spicy sauces to go with everything.

Everything tasted fabulous going down, but a little over an hour later, my stomach wasn't too happy. In fact, the rest of the night and the next morning, I spent most of my time in the bathroom. One of my friends also had to release in the restroom, but her situation wasn't as bad as mine. The other friend had no problems. I don't know what the culprit could be since I was fine the whole day, but maybe I over ate or my stomach wasn't use to this type of food. Either way, I can't say that I'll be having bbq ribs any time soon.

Wonderful barbecue for more of an upscale crowd. Don't expect to save money, but you definitely will go home satisfied.

This outlet on The Plaza delivers perfectly on the Jack Stack formula. Great BBQ and a pleasant, if chain-y, atmosphere and attentive service. Vegetarians will struggle as most items include meat.

Fiorella's Jack Stack Barbecue is an upscale restaurant, with average plate running at or above $20.00. It is famous for barbecue Crown Prime beef rib, pork baby back ribs and Beef Burnt Ends. Customer services was good, with about 20 minute to 30 minute wait time. Disability parking is on street with one spot about 50 feet away.
