Some people drive all over KC to get BBQ they claim is better. This place is less than 5 miles from my home and I feel very lucky it is. The meat is high quality and they have different choices in sauce. My wife loves the fried mushrooms. They service is quick and friendly and I always leave satisfied.

One of the great Kansas City Barbeque restaurants. Great sandwiches and the burnt ends are my boys' favorites. Staff is super friendly and you don't wait forever for your food.

Very average BBQ for a little neighborhood place and far below standard for an outfit with a long reputation like this. Their sauce is a disgrace. Basically just ketchup. Daily specials that are not even described. "There's a picture of it over there. " Mystery to me how they have stayed in business this long!

Yesterday we went to Zarda for supper. The restaurant was quiet, since we got in before a tour bus load of hungry folks. We ordered and received our food lickety-split. I ordered the Hog Wild Sandwich, which was loaded with ham, pulled pork, bacon and melted provolone on a big, soft Roma bun. It was awesomely delicious! With this sandwich... More

Zarda BBQ has been serving great food in Blue Springs for many years. Casual dining, also offers a drive up window. I love their ribs and beans.

If you like an extra burnt taste on your meat, then this is the place for you. The beans had the same taste. This was probably a hip place back in the 80's but now its in need of a major makeover.

Favorite eatery in blue springs. I would highly recommend to anyone passing through I-70 or Blue springs. Not too spicy or too sweet just a bold smokey flavor.
