We eat there when we come through town. I love the rib plate dinner. Ribs just right, and slaw is wonderful, but it is not the cream kind I have eaten here for 10+ years and I have never sent anything back.

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

I've been here quite a few times and service is always really good. The food is cooked well, but the sauce does have a little kick. Good for family sit in.

It's difficult to cook for a vegetarian and diabetic when you love barbecued meat. I took my nephews to Zardas and enjoyed smokey barbecued beef and ham. There were so many side dishes the vegetarian liked such as fried cauliflower and cheesy corn. The locally made barbecue sauce made everything taste yummy and enjoyable for their dietary needs

About six months ago, Zarda introduced something called "limited reserve" BBQ burnt ends. These are special-cooked meats that they fix only a few pounds for the day. I've eaten a lot of BBQ around Kansas City for the last 27 years, and have to say that Zarda's limited reserve burnt ends cannot be beat anywhere. These are big chunks of... More

My favorite is the pulled pork bar-be-que sandwich! All of their dishes are very good, but I think it's a little pricey for the amount of food you get! I still go. . .as you can tell by this last statement. . . .because it is very good!

We have been coming here for 20+ years. We come here as a family several times per year but it is also our first choice when catering a big meal (bday party, grad party, etc). We have ordered a variety of menu items and there isn't anything we wouldn't recommend. The inside of the restaurant is always clean and the... More

The BBQ here is very good. It's quick and easy to order and the people are friendly. They have very good chessy corn and lots of tasty sauces to choose from!

We met family here for the second time. The burnt ends are great. We enjoyed the entire experience, good food, clean surrounding, and welcoming staff. This place gets busy so that I'd also good sign.
