Always great for YEARS!

I love BBQ and coming to KC. Zarda is different than others because of the flavors they use. The pork is the best however the other cuts off meat are good too.

What's to say about GREAT BARBECUE? Good, good, good. We really, really like their coleslaw; not the mayo usual. Never had anything there I couldn't rave about. Highly recommend

This is good if your not a BBQ lover! The beans are great! The food is good....but if you like dry rub BBQ you won't get it here. It seems to me that they just smoke the meat without a rub. I'm not into that so that's why I gave it what I gave it. Great service, friendly staff and... More

We stop in maybe once every few months, the food is really good but the value for what you get is a little high. The staff is always friendly and everything is always clean.

Zarda in Blue Springs has great bar-b-que. The cheesy corn bake, cole slaw and potato salad are also quite tasty.
