It has been a long time since I've been here. Someone we were with wanted to try it. It was as I rememberred.............just so so BBQ. You walk up to a counter, place your order, they call your name, & you go to counter to pick up. No waiter/waitress. It wasn't bad, just that there are so many other BBQ... More

We have had very good food there but, we can get just as good food elsewhere for less money. It is extremely conveniently located though.

The third best BBQ in KC for my money. The best out west when you are heading out of town on either I-435 or I-35 at 87th just off 35. Beans are exceptional!

This was a catered buffet, and absolutely wonderful. Ribs were nicely done and very tender. Sauce was a touch more tomato-y with less brown sugar than my taste, but unlike a lot of KC bbq, it was not spicy. Sides were pleasant, but really side notes to the ribs and a very tender brisket. Service was good and the Friday... More

We visited Zarda Bar-B-Q on a family trip to KC. We took our three boys -- ages three to eight -- for a quick evening dinner after a busy day. The food was delicious and didn't take long at all. Would absolutely recommend it!
