The Average Joe sandwich at Zarda's is awesome. I plan to stop there again in a few weeks on my next visit to KC.

I've been an eater of various Kansas City BBQ places over several years. Zarda has had a special place in my heart(burn) as it was probably the first one I ate at (in Lenexa, KS). I've bought their bottled sauce to take back with me when I visit family yet BOTH of their locations seem to have that same poorly... More

I would recommend calling in your Order prior to pick up and Transport to Arrowhead Stadium. We had a Burnt Ends Package and Brisket Sandwiches. Saves us from carrying a BBQ and all that out to Arrowhead.

At the end of our road trip, we spent night in Kansas City and saw a billboard coming into town for Zarda's BBQ. Since we love that food, we stopped in Blue Springs and had a wonderful meal. I ordered the rib platter for $12.99 and got 3-4 huge meat loaded ribs with two plentiful sides. I took and picture... More

My sandwich was called "Average Joe" and OMG was it delicious! The beef was seriously melt in your mouth delectable. All the additional flavors on it were too. It rates a 10+. It is OMG good.

Have eaten there 3 times now. Always just so-so. Maybe I have ordered the wrong thing. Had one sandwich and the bun was actually cold. Yuk. I thought the KC area was supposed to have fantastic BBQ. Have not found it yet. Atmosphere average. Service OK. Just plain, plain, plain food.

Stop in for late lunch @ Zarda's and ordered the #2 large pork sandwich. Meat had favor, but was over cooked. Needed to add some of their BBQ sauce. Bake beans were the best I had in some time. Full of favorl, meaty with some bite to them. Service was rather slow. Counter help afterward to great for providing drink... More

Next to Fiorella's, Zarda probably serves the best baked beans in town. Meats are thinly sliced and perfectly cooked, however the sauce is a bit sweet for my taste. Menu is pricey and there is little sense of "atmosphere" but the food is consistent.
