I doubt if this would be very many people's favorite BBQ joint in Kansas City, but it is certainly a good dependable place, with good quality meat. The service is fast, the workers are friendly. I can't think of anything negative to report.

We split a generous slab of the smokiest, most nicely textured ribs. Cole slaw is vinegar style and seasoned with just the right amount of celery seed. Service was very good also. Easy to find not far from the interstate.

I go here when I want to have a long lunch with friends. It is usually quiet enough for an enjoyable visit---and everyone always enjoys the BBQ. Ask for additional sauce, or better yet, look for the cart with the bottles of different varieties and take it to your table.

Excellent smoked meats, great sauce -- best BBQ beans on the planet -- a little pricey but not bad enough to bypass. Highly recommend.

I ordered the average Joe, which was awesome. They have amazing bbq. I'm from Indianapolis and would definitely stop again when driving through. Bought a couple of bottles of sauce for home =)

Zarda's has some of the best Bar-B-Q I've ever tasted in my life. Other family member feel the same way. We always like to bring some of their sauce home, and family members either bring it,or send it, when they make the trip our way. Thank you, Zarda's for a most wonderful meal. (And delicious bar-b-q sauce)!

We stopped by Zarda's on a busy Saturday morning and were lucky to find seating. Since we were passing through we had no coupons and thought that the check was a little pricey for our party of 7. The food, however, was good and our order came out reasonably fast. My brisket was tender and the bun was fresh and... More

Zarda's has, in my opinion, the best baked beans in the Kansas City area. The rest of the menu is very good, too, but you can't go there without having the baked beans.

Traveling through Kansas City, I knew I had to have some barbecue, but I didn't know where. On my motorcycle, from the highway, I could even smell barbecue from time to time, but I couldn't see the source. Then I saw a typical highway exit sign, and it had Zarda's on it. I thought, "Great, a chain store." But I... More

The KC rib plate was quite good. I especially liked the hardwood flavor in the ribs. Service was fast, food fresh & hot and the restaurant decor local. I love eating at local eateries to get a sense of the local fare and this location exceeded my expectations. I would eat here again if in the area.
