The staff is very knowledgeable on how to handle gf, they verbally tell the kitchen that your order is gluten free, and the kitchen employees change gloves. Most meats are gluten free, the fries are gluten free, most of the bbq sauces and some of the sides are gluten free as well. The KC classic bbq sauce tastes exactly like gates bbq in Kansas City, which is my favorite bbq place.

Great Gluten Free menu and the staff was well trained to handle my celiac son. Person at the register yelled out that a GF order was coming and the cook in back immediately changed gloves. Fries are the only thing put in deep fryer so those are good. There were 6 different bbq sauces when we went - five of them gluten free. Great option.

This place is great!!! Most of the meats are GF and they even have GF fries!!! I have visited Mission BBQ many times and never had reactions!!! they also are great about changing gloves and you don't even have to ask, but let's be real we all ask anyways! ;) I also live their business model with supporting our military and first responders!!!

We have been here several times. My son has Celiac and we test with the Nima sensor. Each time it has come back safe. They have a very good protocol to avoid cross contamination. When a GF order comes through everyone on the line changes gloves and utensils and the work surfaces are cleaned. Now, I do watch them carefully. I have seen mistakes made. However, they have fantastic customer service and will always make it right. They even come to the table to make sure everything is to your liking. For a fast casual restaurant, I have never experienced better service.

I've ate here on two occasions with no incidents. They did put cornbread in my meal once, but they properly remade it and I was not glutened!

So, so good. The best GF BBQ ever, and no problems! Was so glad that they were doing take out during quarantine. Brisket and Tupelo honey heat were to die for. Just ask for the gluten free menu and tell them you need GF and they’ll change gloves!

We returned after our 1st experience was so memorable. If you haven't already eaten at noon, be sure you arrive before so you too enjoy fully! Food (pulled pork w/ several sauces & cole slaw), service, and their American spirit are exceptionally good!

They always communicate that the order is important to remain gluten-free (as an "allergy") and have always had the best experience.

When you get to the counter you can ask for a gluten free menu or you can check it out on their website. A lot of the menu can be prepared gf and all the sauces, but the Texas Twang, are gluten free. Great food and very friendly workers who take cross contamination seriously. I feel safe eating here at a person with Celiac Disease. Highly recommend to anyone needing to avoid gluten.

Second time trying their food and while they say what I ordered was gluten free and made a point of designating our order that way, I am pretty certain I’ve reacted to it. I am very sensitive to cross contamination and suspect that is the problem here.

Delicious brisket. Was nervous about using the sauces and ketchup due to CC, but I took the top off to try to avoid that. Haven’t had barbecue since the diagnosis, and was very grateful not to have a reaction.

Great service. Supports our veterans!!! Quick and great service!!! Great BBQ!!! Yummy fries!! Just ask for the Gluten Free menu and they will take care of you and make sure your food is prepped on a cleaned area and they will change their gloves. I've ate at this location and the one in Nashville, TN many times and I have never got sick at either location.

Tonight someone made a very serious error: the GF cole slaw had a piece macaroni which is dangerous for a Caliac. This was takeout my husband picked up for us for dinner. Never had this happened until tonight.

So far I have had the wings, coleslaw and Portuguese rice. The staff is very friendly. I have eaten there twice so far. They have an allergy listing at the cashier for you to check which items are safe for your allergy. There isn't much variety but the food is good. The rice is excellent. The wings are okay

I ate here last night and the staff was so attentive and concerned for my wellbeing as a celiac. Unfortunately, I was glutened. I don't know how it happened, and I take responsibility for eating at a place that isn't strictly GF since there's always a risk.

All the meats are gluten free. And all but 1 of the sauces are GF too. Staff knowledgeable and helpful. Fries are in a dedicated fryer. No GF buns, but can get the meat over a salad. Delicious and family all enjoyed their food as well. The kids couldn’t stop talking about how good it was, so we even went back a week later when we were in DC again.
