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.

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.

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.

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.

The third best BBQ in KC for my money. The best out west when you are heading out of town on either I-435 or I-35 at 87th just off 35. Beans are exceptional!
