I love Zarda in Blue Springs. Their food is consistently fresh and delicious. I love how the meat doesn't have a ton of fat on it as other places do. I love their sauces and spices. The salad bar is delicious. The food is always the appropriate temperature and delicious. One of my favorite BBQ places.

This is my favorite BBQ in Eastern Jackson and Lafayette Co. I have been eating here for more than 20 years. The smoke flavor is awesome. If you like crispy breaded onion rings, Don't miss theirs! Chris and The rest of the team will take well care of you!

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
