Great BBQ

Family informal dinning with a country western flair. Come early and bring the whole family. For the ladies ask for the 2 rib plate. It's a large amount with 2 ribs and a side. Just delish!! May not be the biggest name in KC but it has the best BBQ.

The side dishes had an old world flair. The meat was extremely flavorful and tender. Nice atmosphere. It must be a local favorite because it was packed. Bring an extra $20 and pick up a t shirt. .

Traveling thru area, wanted local food not chains. Arrived early which glad we did bc got really busy after. Pulled pork, chicken, and Burnt ends, Mac n cheese were really good. Service ok you order at a bar and they call your number, But you don't have to clean up after yourself, which is a plus. Would return.

I love to eat the salad bar at Zarda. Always fresh vegetables. And my husband and I love the average joe sandwich, it comes with an onion ring on it. Very tasty. And I really love their hickory BBQ sauce.

Zarda has excellent BBQ and their beans are the best I've ever tasted. My favorite is the beef sandwich but I have also tried their ribs, ham and burnt ends. Compared to other local BBQ restaurants, Zarda tops the list for me.

I had the burnt end sandwich and slaw for lunch. There are certainly better Bar-b-q joints in the area, e.g. Oklahoma Joe's, Gates, etc -- but Zarda is still better than what passes for bar-b-q in 90% of the country. The sauce is nice and vinegary in the KC style. The salad bar was a nice touch not usually found... More

This is a really good place to get the feel for some KC BBQ. It is pretty good and it is not priced to bad. I like how its set up where you order your food at the front and then seat yourself, so no annoying waiters and stuff

Ribs were brontosaurus size, served face down on a slice of bread. Membrane on back of rib still intact. Why? Any dry... More

First visit to this location with a large group of friends. Food items way over smoked and the sauce heavy with tomato. All food was warm at best. Wouldn't recommend, too many other places to try.
