We were in the area for business and want to try some Kansas City barbecue. Found Zarda's and went in. It was simply amazing! Ribs and pulled pork was awesome. Great fast friendly service! When we were leaving the manager even gifted us with a bottle of their sauce!

There was one car in lot and the building looked abandoned. The only people inside were a woman ordering at the counter and about five people behind counter... More

I live in a town full of BBQ Resturants and this is one of my favorites to eat at. They are reasonably priced and the food is great. They have a large eating area and even have a private room for groups.

The food is good. Meat has a decent smoke to it. Onion rings are really good. They have a couple of different kinds of sauce on the tables, I like that. Side choices are good. They don't offer much beef though. Sometimes I'd like some beef. The service is good. They are fast, friendly, courteous. My favorite thing is the... More

Great location down the street from our hotel. We had a full rack, which is ribs and tips and my son had a pulled pork sandwich. The bark was pretty dark and the smoke flavor was very strong. Not terrible, but if you don't like a ton of smoke maybe not for you. Lathered in sauce rather than letting the... More

Passing through KC and was recommended here by a local. Great sides (cheeses potatoes, baked beans, Mac n cheese, fried pickles), but the ribs were just okay. Could be that I am not a wet rub person, but the sandwiches others were eating looked great. Excellent service as well.
