Ok

I've heard for a long time that Kansas City has the best BBQ in the country. My son and I love BBQ. With the great reviews of this place, we went here hoping to partake in something wonderful. We both got the rib plate. The meat had a nice smoked flavor. However, the barbecue sauce was wanting. The sauce was thin and sweet. The sauce will make or break ribs. In this case, it was sadly disappointing.

Best BBQ in Kansas City!!!

I like several BBQ joints in Kansas City... and I will say that the only bad one isnt even from Kansas City...And who goes around claiming they are famous anyway? Thats like the kid who came up with his own nickname in elementary school, and ate his boogers during reading time. I think that Zarda BBQ Is probably my personal favorite, and is to me, the definition of Kansas City BBQ. I do not see how anybody could say that they ""refuse to serve people if they are busy""...Does that even...view more make sense? Would a business refuse to serve if they are busy? Are they not there to make money?...and if they are busy...and there is a long line...doesnt that mean they are good? In all honesty....Zarda Has around 6 people with individual registers up front checking people out. Most I others I have seen have maybe two...and some even have one. Those place will get lines because only one person is able to take thier order. If Zarda has a line with its 6 people taking orders at one time and they were so busy they refused to take orders...hmm...that must have been some crowd in there...and they must be doing something right. I have seen wal-mart have less registers open than that. If you dont want to stand in line, how about you go on down the street and get a nice Arby-Q for 99 cents. I think that would be a little more your speed.view less

BBQ Fountain? Only Zarda

Went to a party last week, Zarda had a BBQ fountain, kind of like the chocolate fountain. They also had a ranch fountain with veggies and stuff.

Nice twist to regular BBQ.

Also, saw Zarda on the news with their charity donations to the Chief's and Diabetes, and also donating for local schools. These are tough times, it's nice to see a company that is still giving to the community and people in need.

nice people, nice photos, nice salad

Real KC feel -- love the photos all over the walls, like pictures of feeding the Chiefs (Go Chiefs). The people working there are really nice. AND - hate to say it about a BBQ place, but the salad bar is awesome.

Avoid this restaurant!!!

Zarda barbeque is lousy in all areas od service. They refuse to help you when lines are way backed up. The service there is lousy and you don't get a good deal for the price you pay.

Zarda

One of the best BBQs in Kansas City. The meat is tender with very little fat on it unlike other BBQ places. They have the best bbq beans.

My personal choice

Zarda barbecue is a cornerstone in Kansas City Barbecue. Since Zarda Barbecue is arguably the best barbecue in Kansas City and Kansas City is the barbecue capitol of the world; by logic, Zarda ranks right up there as the best barbecue in the world.

They have the best ribs I have ever eaten. They blow away Fiorella's and annihilate KC Masterpiece. Their beans....oooohhhh so good, with small chunks of meat in them. Lastly, their burnt ends. Great burnt ends.

In all, I'd have to s

#3 best BBQ in World

Best BBQ in world after Bryants & Gates. Great ribs and briskets. Great sides and wide selection. You just won't get a bad meal here, ever. Clean and roomy & handles large crowds. Brisket is juicy and tender. I never get burned ribs either. Everything is fresh. Its about as perfect as AB's or Gates.

Oh yeah, they do great sending Fed-Exing BBQ to your friends too. Not too many others can do it.

Also, I do not know these folks or get any $$ for this. Just straight
