I took my employee here for a business lunch. We both had a sandwich, fries and drink and it was about $24. The pulled pork was good, and the fries were hot and fresh. It is a lil dark in the restaurant but the food was good. I will be back.

Okay, we only go here for meat by the pound for events. The real BBQ in KC is not here, save yourself some money and get a better meal at Oklahoma Joes! Too bad because it is a local brand.

We were in Lenexa for a Patriot Guard funeral. Afterwards 9 of us stopped here to eat before hitting the road home. One of our guys lives in the area, and had been there several times before. I would have to say it was one of the best BBQ places we have ever eaten at. We don't get up that... More

I have visited Zarda BBQ for well over 35 years, and this is my all time favorite BBQ joint. Service is quick with numerous registers at the service counter, and the food is unusually consistent - something unusual for most places. Although all the BBQ meats are wonderful, my favorite is the ribs, which are without a doubt the moistest,... More

Zarda Catering fine; restaurant terrible - for company catering, it was fine, and very good service but the restaurant in Lenexa provided a horrible experience. The expensive sandwich had hardly no meat, so I complained and a new one was provided with a bad attitude. I will never go to this place again. It is overpriced, hard to access and... More

I had never had KC BBQ before. This was delicious. I loved the burnt ends. Also tried the cheese poppers and fried pickles. Very yummy. The portions were large so my lunch was also my dinner. If you like vinegar coleslaw, you will love this. There was a very large lunch crowd so they must be doing something right!!

Some of the best barbeque in KC! As a frequent patron, the food is always excellent! Service is fast and friendly. Location is convenient just west of I-35 on 87th Street.

Good size portions, but average tasting barbeque. Lenexa building could use some updating. Average family style barbecue restaurant,

My husband and I stopped by for lunch at Zarda's in Lenexa. We paid $8 each for a sandwich (burnt ends for me, pork for him) with fatty meat on a grocery store bun and a pickle on the side, with a weak glass of tea. Maybe we just ordered the "wrong" thing for a person's first impression but I... More

The ribs were juicy, hot, and smokey... Crave worthy. The sides were just so-so aside from the baked beans which were great. Sauces were well balanced, also. I would definitely go back if I were in the mood for ribs!
