A week of vacation and this is the first place we got cross contamination. Gloves weren’t changed and I am sick within thirty minutes.

Gluten free menu, dedicated fryer, and staff are generally knowledgeable. Great food, especially the pulled chicken.

I HAVE gotten sick once at Mission BBQ- not this location- because I requested the Texas BBQ sauce. Be aware, this one is NOT gf- and my server didn't know or remember to warn me. Please check the menu for the list of safe sauce options.

Apart from that little incident, I'm happy with their menu and protocols.

Solid "B"

Cool dećor, too.

Okay, I LOVE this chain and what they offer us, but if you choose this branch you need to watch prep like a hawk. No glove change, they put cornbread in with the meal and say “it doesn’t matter because it’s wrapped in tinfoil” (so you changed gloves between touching the bread and wrapping it? sure.) and twice I’ve had to stand there like I did something wrong as annoyed cooks re-prep my meal. It’s the most convenient location for me, but now I don’t want to go back.

Kitchen is visible from the counter, watched the change of gloves and area clean up. Great chemistry between employees and delicious food. Was an overall awesome experience!

Staff was very knowledgable about celiac and preventing cross-contamination. The meats are cut in front of you, so I could hear a more experienced worker directing some newer ones to change their gloves and use separate weigh trays in order to keep my food safe. All of the hot sauces they have on the tables are GF except for “Texas Twang”.

The staff is knowledgeable about gluten free items, and took care to make sure everything was prepared correctly. The pulled pork is fantastic, and fries are made in a dedicated fryer. I ordered the fries with seasoning, just to be safe. Staff explained exactly which sauces I could safely eat. Great food in a patriotic atmosphere! I have eaten here many times now, and I'll keep coming back!

Went here on a whim last night and was blown away. First and foremost, I’m super picky about my BBQ. We move every couple years so I’ve sampled bbq from all over the US. This stuff was GOOD!

There is so much here that is GF and they don’t make you feel like a moron for asking questions about prep. Everyone there was so nice!

I ordered a 3 meat sampler: Turkey, brisket, and plain sausage. They were all delicious! I was warned that the only brisket left was lean brisket and it would be a little drier. But it wasn’t dry AT ALL. It was tender and flavorful! I am impressed!

I also ordered cole slaw (decent- I like a sweet slaw like the kind they have at KFC best. But this was midway on sweetness) and French fries. And oh my lord the fries not only are cooked in their own fryer, but also they ARE THE GOOD KIND (darker brown with skins)!!! They are seriously delicious!

I believe there’s one sauce that’s not GF. I had the Alabama white sauce, the classic, and Memphis Belle. The classic was absolutely fantastic but I’m a wimp with spice and even after trying to force myself to eat it, I couldn’t take the heat. The Belle was a great runner up though.

When your food is ready (we ordered takeout), they open the boxes and show you your food. They seem to really care about making your experience perfect.

My only beef with the place- CREAMED CORN. Please put creamed corn on the menu! Okay, and maybe a GF banana pudding :)
