Our kids held a surprise 25th anniversary party in the private room at Zarda. I had no idea they even had a party room. It was the perfect set up and even had a sliding wooden door when we got a little loud. The BBQ was awesome, as usual. I don't go very often but have been eating at Zarda's... read more

We've eaten their BBQ since the very beginning of their opening! Our favorite is the large BBQ beef/pork sandwich with fries...oh yes, don't forget the pickles. YUM! We may have to go there tonight, got my mouth watering. LOVE their sauce too, you can even by in local stores, and we do! Family always requests us to bring sauce when... More

We have eaten at Zarda's many times, as we live in Blue Springs. Occasionally, they will have coupons for sandwiches in the local paper/shopper. The meat is normally pretty good, however when you put a BBQ sandwich on white bread, it stays soggy and falls apart before you are finished eating. Out of everything that we have eaten here, the...

We particularly enjoy picking up sliced brisket and a few side to enjoy at home. However chicken and ribs with several sides and the salad bar is a real treat when we're particularly hungry. Tasty meats and great variety in sides never fail to satisfy.

There are so many good BBQ places in the Kansas City area do not waste your time or money eating here. Plow boys is down the street which is so much better. The beans are way too spicy and the tea tastes like dirty water.

The barbeque I had didn't taste as well as they advertised. The meat was bland and I felt like I needed to add my own spices for flavoring. This place apparently does not meet my standard for barbeque.

It is definitely hard to imagine why this restaurant is the #3 ranked restaurant in Blue Springs...oh wait, it is because Blue Springs hardly has any quality restaurants! The food is okay, I had the burnt end sandwich deal ($12.00), and found the burnt ends to be tough and chewy. However, the star of the plate were the fries, they... More

Not so impressed by the quality of this BBQ restaurant. Picked up a takeout order. Coleslaw was not so good, fries okay but disappointed in the meats.
