Zarda has great sliced sausage and have outstanding burn ends. Sandwiches are always excellent and the sides are very good. The only suggestion I would have is the ribs always seem a little tough. I like my ribs almost fall off the bone and very...More

I ate here for lunch and enjoyed their burnt ends. I chose the plate that had both beef and pork burnt ends. Both were excellent. Their beans were good but I thought the slaw was average.

Zarda has great food and outstanding service! They are affordably priced and have good portion sizes. I enjoyed the fries, beans, ribs and ham. Their sauce is amazing and comes in a variety of flavors. I highly recommend this restaurant!

The burnt ends were dry and at times a bit too fatty, the sandwich bread was essentially a cheap hot dog bun, but the sweet potato fries were good. We went on a Wednesday with free kids meals which was great, and with additional daily...More

They were on time; set up quickly and efficiently; everything we ordered was there - including items such as sugar substitute for the unsweet tea. We had the "picnic" and the food was delicious. Coleslaw was 'okay' - more of a vinegar flavor but the...More
