An old standby in Lenexa, Zarda BBQ doesn't disappoint. More than generous portions, large drinks and several comfortable seating areas await you. Their menu offers everything from sandwiches, platters, salad bar and even catering. My choice is a pulled pork sandwich, but burnt ends are...More

Was there on a Sunday afternoon at 2:00. Had the beef plate with burnt end bbq beans and cheesy corn. The meat was served drenched in bbq sauce and everything was cold. Disappointing — all for $16.61. Hardly worth it.

Zarda is one BBQ place not as popular as Gates, Arthur Bryant's, Jack Stack etc. however I have always had great food and service. The Salad bar is fresh and the country western motif is fun.

Enjoyed the food. Had a pulled pork sandwich and ribs. Was very good, not best I ever had but very good and would go back easily if in town again. Tough market for BBQ with a lot of choices and they hold their own.
