Zarda Bar-B-Q has “the best barbecue ribs, brisket and turkey in Kansas City,” says one BBQ customer on Yelp. Another raves, “The most tender burnt ends I’ve had in KC so far.” And, “Delicious thick fries, yummy crispy fried pickles, and the meat is always so tender.” A customer on Urban Spoon writes, “Zarda has this amazing smoked Italian sausage. It’s sliced paper thin, smoky and spicy. It’s heaven…try it!” And: “I’ve tried Gates, Oklahoma Joe’s, Bryant’s and Jack Stack, but Zarda is my favorite, they have the best tasting ribs – so juicy and crisp. Their BBQ sauce is like no other – not too sweet not too spicy.”
