Zarda & Hunter Renfroe create the ultimate game-day BBQ sandwich – Hunter’s Royale with Cheese!

“Hunter’s Royale with Cheese” is an all-new BBQ sandwich taste sensation made with Zarda’s Award-Winning Limited Reserve Burnt Ends, melted Pepper Jack Cheese, tender pulled pork, melted Cheddar Cheese, Crispy Onion Straws, melted Provolone Cheese, Hunter’s favorite Bar-B-Q sauce – all piled high on a toasted Roma Brioche bun.

Yep! That’s THREE layers of melted Cheese + TWO delicious layers of Zarda hickory smoked meats = ONE delicious signature sandwich: Hunter’s Royale with Cheese!

During the 2024 Kansas City Royals baseball season a portion of proceeds from the sale of Hunter’s Royale with Cheese will benefit Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City. In addition to the two KC metro Zarda Bar-B-Q locations, Hunter’s Royal with Cheese is also available at all 20 Kansas City area Hy-Vee stores, both at their Market Grilles and Wahlburgers within Hy-Vee.

According to Hunter:

“This sandwich is delicious – it’s a winner! Hunter’s Royale with Cheese does not disappoint – the Burnt Ends, the Pulled Pork, a whole lot of melted cheese, the crispy onion straws, plus my favorite sauce – this one’s for real! KC, you’re gonna’ love it! Did I mention the cheese?!”

Zarda Bar-B-Q COO, Terry Hyer, shares Hunter’s enthusiasm:

“We’ve done a lot of great sandwiches over the years, but this one’s got that extra bite. Growing up in the South, Hunter’s been around a lot of great BBQ, so we knew this one had to be special. We tried a lot of combinations – and realized that no one had really upped the game with three flavors of cheese. Including the Ltd. Reserve Burnt Ends and Pulled Pork was a natural – they taste great together. And the onion straws and Hunter’s favorite sauce give it an extra mouthwateringly zesty kick. The name, it just fit: Hunter’s Royale with Cheese!”

Be prepared – once you try Hunter’s Royale with Cheese, it won’t be your last! And every sandwich also helps Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City!

Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City CEO, Micheal Lawrence, commented:

“We’re excited to work with Zarda and Hy-Vee for another baseball season – and Hunter Renfroe on this amazing sandwich! The continued partnership between Zarda and Hy-Vee has raised nearly $90,000 for Big Brothers Big Sisters Kansas City in the last three years. Bringing Hunter Renfroe to this powerful partnership is an exciting new opportunity to debut a new delicious sandwich to the community while continuing to defend the potential for youth in Kansas City.  All funds raised from this campaign will go to help match some of our 250 waiting Littles with caring, adult mentors.”

You can stop by and enjoy Hunter’s Royale with Cheese at both Zarda locations and all area Hy-Vee Market Grille and Wahlburgers locations throughout the baseball season from 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily!
