I used to be a pretty big fan of Zardas, but have been pretty astonished at how far they have dropped in food quality. We visited the Lenexa location on 87th street in Dec '14. Burnt ends were dry, tough, over-smoked pieces from the brisket flat (v tender morsels that can be obtained from the deckel or brisket point). Pulled... More

We dined at the 87th St. Lenexa location. The service was quick and the food was good and warm. The burnt ends are my favorite. The slaw has a vinegar like flavor rather than the sweet flavor of most others laws. When added to the top of a pulled pork sandwich it makes for great eating.

Yummy yummy!! This is a BBQ staple for us! Always good and consistent. Hands down the best burnt ends...small chunks of brisket and ham cooked in sauce all day to give it a nice crunch. Mouthwatering goodness! Love the fried pickles, corn nuggets, and onion rings! All come with side of ranch and this is the GOOD ranch. Zardas offers... More

Zarda is a fixture in Lenexa and has consistently provided a great experience for me and anyone I bring to the establishment. The first thing you will notice is the stacks of wood outside for the smokers and the smell, which is always mouthwatering. It can be difficult to get to the parking lot if you don't plan ahead, so... More

Parking is horrible in this small lot. Order at the counter and then they call your number. Our food was not what we ordered and then they wanted to argue with me on what I ordered. When we finally got what we wanted it simply tastes like deli meat with BBQ sauce added to it. The meat itself had no... More

Everyone knows the Kansas City area is well known for its many great BBQ places. One of our favorites is Zarda's. You walk in and they are ready to take your order. The menu is on the wall above them. I usually almost always get their combo special - choice of meat, side and drink. Their beef is ALWAYS tender.... More

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
