My daughter’s order was marked as requiring special handling and the cashier went to the manager to tell him as well. They changed gloves and kept her order separate before bringing it straight to the table. They have a lot of gluten free options and take it seriously. We will be returning.
Many items GF. Tell the person taking your order you'd like it GF. They remove the cornbread and fries are prepared separate. I always get brisket. Almost all sauces are GF. Excellent place, great staff. Great food, never got sick. Only place I go for BBQ. 2 thumbs up!
I haven’t gotten this sick in my entire time as a celiac. The lady who took my order told the staff that there was a gluten allergy and she told me which sauces I could have, and promised they would change their gloves. Food was delicious but within a few hours I knew something had gone wrong. They seem wonderful and I’m sure this was just a fluke, but please be aware if you have celiac that this place may not be best.
Had dinner here tonight, we've eaten at our local restaurant but this was our first time at this location. I asked for the manager before placing my order to ensure that he was aware of proper protocol. The manager & his team provided excellent service and ensured that we had a safe and pleasant experience.
The regular menus are sitting out near the door as you walk in, but there weren’t any gluten free menus. I asked for one but was told that they didn’t have gluten free menus. I found a table and sat down with my family to discuss what we could/ should order, and suddenly a staff member appears with a gluten free menu! I ordered the 5 bone ribs with a side of fries. I used a sauce that was listed as gluten free. I have not been this sick in a LONG time. I’m talking incredibly sick! It was awful! I will not be going back.
I was hoping to give a 5 star review because the staff were helpful and knowledgeable. Unfortunately after a good ordering experience we found a huge hunk of cornbread in our gluten free pulled pork 😭 Not safe for my celiac daughter and makes me feel skeptical about ever being able to eat out safely after her recent diagnosis. I hope this was an isolated incident but felt I should really share this experience.
I eat here all the time and have never gotten sick. I can eat the fries too, yay! Just make sure you ask if you're not sure about something being gluten free. Obviously the buns, cornbread, and gravy are not gluten free. Great southern atmosphere.
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.
I love this food. It has its own menu with a lot of items on it. The treat GLUTEN Free like it’s a real thing and make extra sure to be helpful. The food is excellent and the service is even better. I love having a variety of food and sauces to chose from! Thank you Mission!
Staff was super willing to help, and I didn’t have a reaction after eating here! Ask for the GF menu when you go up to the register to order, and it explains everything. Also you can ask to take it to your seat so you know which BBQ sauces are safe. They accidentally put corn bread on my tray when they plated everything, but immediately took it back and plated it again with new food when the cashier noticed the issue. (Before I even said anything!)
Gluten free menu. Delicious food. Incredibly friendly people who are knowledgable about gluten and happy to explain their options and set-up to you. They wipe down the prep area for your order to avoid cross-conramination.
Delicious food! Amazing service! And best of all no reaction to glutening! I'm celiac and didnt react!
Staff was knowledgeable about gluten free. I mentioned I couldn’t have the cornbread any where near my food and they said they would change gloves when preparing my salmon. I originally ordered smashed potatoes and the staff said they were cooked in same pot and water as pasta and offered me gluten free options. They even told me which BBQ sauces were not gluten free.
Delicious! Lots of choices... the staff was very helpful. We have used for catered events.
I love this place. Virtually everything is naturally GF and they do a good job of making sure their bread doesn't accidently contaminate anything else. The only thing they fry are the hand cut french fries.
Soooooooooo good!!! This place is friendly, clean and delicious. Almost everything is gluten free and the fried is exclusively for French fries! Yay! All barbecue sauces except the Texas Twang are GF. They are very aware of how to handle food for those with a gluten allergy and alert the kitchen. Nice to enjoy a “normal” meal with my family!!
The manager was very knowledgeable about Celiac. Confirmed that they change gloves and utensils when preparing gluten free food. They only use their sole fryer for fries so they are gluten free. Their gluten free menu provides a good amount of options as well as explanations when needed. Sadly their corn bread is not gluten free.
We found this place by accident and I’m so glad! This has been one of the best restaurant experiences I’ve had since being diagnosed with celiac. The staff offered to get the manager to talk to me to make sure I was taken care of and the manager made every effort to ensure I felt safe ordering. He had everyone in the kitchen change their gloves (without me asking). They even served my baked sweet potato uncut to ensure no opportunity for contamination. Every staff member made me feel special, not a nuisance. Delicious food too. I didn’t get the fries, but there is a dedicated fryer. Amazing experience!
This is one of our go-to restaurants. The staff is knowledgeable and is very good about taking precautions. They have a very large gluten free menu, but one time I accidentally ordered a seasonal item thinking it was safe (it wasn’t). A manager came to my table immediately before we started eating, informed me it wasn’t safe, and brought me a different side item. We feel 100% comfortable eating there.
Gluten free menu available. Dedicated fryer.
I’ve had Mission BBQ catering a few times and have loved their celiac safe service and food. This was my first time eating in a restaurant and I was blown away. Every single staff member took my celiac seriously, when asked if they could change gloves she said “oh we have an entire celiac protocol, that’s a part of it!” They have bottles of sauce on every table, and all but one is celiac safe. But, I was a bit concerned about the potential contamination of the bottle cap, and the staff immediately changed it out for me. They even took the cap off without a gloved hand, and put the new cap on with her other hand, which was gloved. The immense attention to detail and care towards celiac customers blew me away. I ordered some to go as well because they did such a great job.
Excellent about gluten free! Enjoyed the chicken and fries, they don’t have a shared fryer. Felt great after eating there! Would definitely go back!
