Meat was smoky and tender, perhaps too tender to have been cooked with authentic KC bbq techniques. Tasty sauce. Good fries and excellent onion rings.. Most of the sides seemed to have been prepared in a factory somewhere--not home cooked. Prices area bit high for what one receives in return, in my opinion. Still, if you're hankering for some Q...

A quick place to chow down on 87th street. Plenty of close parking and drive up window if you choose. The food is good and you can order at the counter quickly and soon thereafter pick up your food and start eating. You don't have to worry about finding a table or a parking place. We can argue about the... More

KC is known for barbeque and this place is awesome! I've never been disappointed with the food. We've had nearly everything on the menu and it's fantastic!

Good KC BBQ. Burnt ends are delicious, so is their corn. Service was quick and friendly. Atmosphere is cozy western.

After an afternoon of shopping, we were looking for a place to eat. Came across Zarda. We had heard of this restaurant but this was our first time eating here. Everything was good and the servings were a good size. My husband and I would rather add our own BBQ sauce but they serve everything with their signature sauce already... More

Went with out of state family. The service was quick and food was your typical KC bbq. Definitely try the different types of BBQ sauce. The apple bbq sauce was a hit.

This restaurant is very close to our home so of course, it makes it so easy to pop in and order take out food. They have a drive in take out lane with a menu for selection. Prices I think are in line with other BBQ restaurants in the KC area. Order the sandwich called "Average Joe"! Plenty of piled... More

Great place for a good barbeque meal. Special was a Hog Wild sandwich with beans and burnt ends. Order was taken quickly by a new counter person. She did fine except she spoke very softly. It was difficult to hear but we finally managed to place our order.

It has been a long time since I've been here. Someone we were with wanted to try it. It was as I rememberred.............just so so BBQ. You walk up to a counter, place your order, they call your name, & you go to counter to pick up. No waiter/waitress. It wasn't bad, just that there are so many other BBQ... More

We have had very good food there but, we can get just as good food elsewhere for less money. It is extremely conveniently located though.
