The Kansas City area has many excellent and very good places to get BBQ. It is a challenge to say one is necessarily better than the next, as the ones that are most well known are all great choices, and there are many superb choices from restaurants not so well known. Whenever anyone comes to visit from outside the area... More

Held a family gathering in Zarda's back room. Delicious barbeque buffet. Extremely easy to work with. Sarah was so helpful making plans and accommodating on the night of the affair. We all had a wonderful time. The price was excellent also. Wouldn't hesitate to use this facility again!!

I did not appreciate being told after I ordered that there was a 50 cent up charge on two of the menu items we had selected. The portions were enormous and food was above average.

We just enjoyed some very good BBQ from Zarda again. They don't get mentioned much in good BBQ spots in KC, but maybe they should. Had family stop by from Denver on short notice wanting BBQ. Out of convenience we got carryout from Zarda. Ribs, beef, burnt ends, beans, corn on the cob. It was very good. Fall off the... More

We are here for my sons basketball awards. I like that you order from the counter and then seat yourself. I had the Wild Hog sandwich and it was very good. My wife had brisket and sausage meat platter with beans and everything was really good, their sauce was tangy and I liked it. Staff was friendly and helpful 👍🏻

I have to be gluten free, so BBQ joints are a good choice for me. I have been to many. The food at Zarda's is as good as the best! The atmosphere is casual, which is reflected in the modest prices. The service, though, was top notch. Our food was prepared quickly and when there was an error in one... More

We had Zarda cater a lunch at our office. We had pork, brisket, and chicken. It was all good but my favorite was the pork. I didn't have any of the sides but several people loved the fried okra. It was the first thing gone.
