“Three Strikes And You're Out”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 29, 2014

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.

“So-so on the meats, but loved the baked beans”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 11, 2014

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 refills. Seems to take along time to clean off the dirty tables.

“Good flavor but pricey.”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 8, 2014 via mobile

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.

“It takes going home again to appreciate good barbeque!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 5, 2013

It was only after I moved away that I appreciated the good and diverse barbecue of Kansas City. Zarda has always been a favorite. Burnt ends were the reason for my trip but I had forgotten how tasty those beans are. yum!
