I was in Kansas City area for business and had a free evening, asked around and Zarda's was the BBQ answer. I always work under the assumption that if a BBQ place can't do ribs then they can't do anything. Well...they can do ribs!

This is a family favorite when we visit Kansas City. Food is outstanding, service is also outstanding, atmosphere is friendly and clean. We have been here many many times and will continue to go!! If you like BBQ you won't want to miss out on Zarda. Better than Famous Dave's all the way around!

This is one place I can depend on. I went last week and got the full slab (figured I could take the leftovers home for lunch the nnexy day). I also got an order of mushrooms. They were just OK. But the ban pork ribs with sauce were just as I remember, juicy, moist and smoked just right. Fall off... More

Had lunch there recently and was pleasantly surprised the quality has returned. Food was great. Their beans of course have always been good.

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!!
