We should have looked at their website before going. The two employees behind the counter knew very little about what any of the food contained. I was offered a sample of the potato salad after being told it was gf. I ate it and ordered it as a side to my meal. When we asked if they had a gluten free menu we were told no. After sitting down we looked up their website and saw that they do have a gf menu and the potato salad is NOT on it. Make sure to do your research before ordering!
Just left this restaurant and all i can say, this is the first place where i felt that my daughter got 100% GF food! We are from Europe and on a few weeks trip in US (from Boston to Tampa. ) and with celiac it's always hard to have a quick meal. But this the place was very cool, the staff was nice, the chief was very helpful and the food was amazin!! They really care about their customers!! Thank you so much!!
Very impressed and happy with their gf menu choices and understanding of gf. French fries are the only thing fried in the fryer and are gf. 5 of the 6 sauces on the table are gf - all except the Texas twang. Delicious brisket and pulled pork - I will not hesitate to come back. Family friendly quick service style.
I was a little hesitant to try Mission BBQ at first but finally was convinced and it was amazing. You can watch the chefs prepare your food while waiting at the counter and they are conscientious of cross contamination. Their meats are so tender and they have many different gluten free options including pulled pork, chicken, and ribs. Their French fries are delicious and come on your plate in an abundance. I would also highly recommend the beans and bacon as a side.
Great food! They have several gluten free options, including French fries! The staff members are knowledgeable about cross contamination. We ate here twice while we were in town. The sliced brisket and pulled chicken were tasty!
Amazing food, incredibly nice and knowledgeable staff, a huge number of GF items. Not only feel completely safe here with my Celiac daughter (Note: the “Texas Twang” sauce is not GF), but they even brought us individually wrapped utensils since it was safer than the ones they had out... and I had never thought of that! 10 out of 10 for us!!
Incredibly thoughtful staff and approach. Entered in GF at the register, called back to the prep station verbally, then changed gloves and wiped down the station. They cared and took all possible precautions to avoid CC. I’m always happy just to find a place that listens and has a process.. Mission has an added bonus because the food is delicious!
The owner went above and beyond for our first time here. He explained the dedicated frier for the fries and all the things we could have gluten free. He walked back and told the staff personally about the allergy. He even brought us complimentary sides of the ones we didn’t order he was so enthusiastic about making sure we enjoyed our gluten free meal. The food is absolutely delicious and somehow not overly greasy. Definitely going here again!
We loved this place! My boyfriend is celiac and the staff were all careful to keep our food safe. They changed utensils, all fries are fresh, made to order in their own fryer, and the manager took time to talk to us even after staff had answered our questions just to assure us they use safe practices. The food was amazing! We tried a bit of several different meats and five of their six bbq sauces were gf. We liked our experience enough to seek out another of this chain while in Fort Lauderdale recently. Definitely try this place if you can!!
Staff was very attentive to the gluten issue. Noted it so that staff would change gloves and take care when plating it. Very clear and knowledgeable about which food and sauces were GF. Dedicated fryer for fries!
Maybe the best gf place AND the best BBQ I’ve had. Ever. Just finished my 2nd meal here and very impressed. Their gf protocol is stellar. Change gloves. Dedicated fryer. Most things naturally gf. So lots of choices. I’m a fan.
Great food and service. Ordering gf was very easy and painless. They made seem normal.
The food is delicious and they take extra care to avoid cross contamination. The only thing that has ever made me sick here were the lemons. I guess something contaminated them during prep so beware. There are so many safe choices here it's wonderful.
I saw Mission BBQ's ratings on here and decided to go. I called beforehand, as is my usual procedure, and spoke to the manager (Heather), who carefully detailed the specifics of the restaurant and added that they have many regulars who also have celiac disease and are familiar with how to avoid cross contamination. Heather personally prepared our food and brought it to us. All of their sauces except one are gf, but Heather also let us know about a sugar free sauce (Alabama White) that was perfect for my diet. The entire experience was lovely and the manager was very attentive. I have only one complaint. We ordered a side of collard greens and I stirred it before eating only to find a noodle lurking inside. The manager was very apologetic, and replaced the side with one that hadn't yet been on the line. Luckily, I caught it before I ate, but it may be helpful for other celiacs to request that their sides be taken from containers that haven't yet been on the line, to minimize cross-contamination.
First thing is first. The food is absolutely incredible. I ate the pulled pork, the spare ribs, and the brisket, and all of it was delicious. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable about gluten sensitivity, changing gloves and providing a gluten free menu. Go here. Go here now.
Has separate GF menu, but only located at the register and you have to ask for it. Most meats are GF, along with several sides. 5 out of 6 sauces are GF. Dedicated fryer for fries. When ordering state that it's a gluten free order. They immediately tell the kitchen staff, who change gloves. I've visited this location several times and always take gluten free seriously.
All of the staff I spoke with were knowledgeable, and ask if they were not sure. I had pulled chicken and fries (dedicated fryer!). Memphis Belle sauce is my fave. Don’t Mess with TX sauce as it is not GF. All of the other sauces are, though.
Great food & staff. Had smoked half chicken and pulled pork. Both were delicious. Lots of gf sides. The fries are great.
Amazing food—VERY gluten aware and VERY good for whole family! They have a separate gluten free menu with many choices. Manager very interested in meeting our needs—even came an asked about pudding—tested it with Nina and without the vanilla wafers it was gluten free too!
Food was excellent. They made sure to they knew we were gluten free. Food was done fast. Meat was moist and fries were delicious. Edit to add- my husband saw the server change her gloves when they said our order was gluten free
Great meal. GF menu. First time there, I ordered and didn’t see GF on the ticket so I went back up to the counter to double check before my meal was ready. The cashier didn’t tag it but the line stopped and listened as the manager announced my name and ticket needed to be GF. Tons of choices, no GF bread but that’s ok with me. Best of all... I didn’t get sick afterwards so... 5 stars! I’ll be back soon!!!
The food here was amazing. I absolutely loved their sauces, the majority of which I could have, as well as all the meats and many sides. They have a gluten free menu. Unfortunately, they weren’t thinking and put a piece of corn bread on my tray. It didn’t contaminate anything. I also found a small piece of noodle in my green beans and bacon. I think if I had reminded them to be careful they would have, but the cook was maybe not signaled that I was gluten free because everything I ordered was naturally that way. I’m giving them 4 stars because this was some of the best BBQ I’ve had and I suspect on another night I would be fine there. The girls I ordered from were trying to be conscientious.
Very good bbq and the staff knew about gf items on the menu.
Have eaten here many times and have never been sick. Staff is knowledgeable. Highly recommended!
Very quick. Very affordable. Very good. They take great care to make sure your food is gluten free. They even have fries!! The manager (owner?) personally spoke with us about processes and ingredients. Great worry-free option for anyone in the area.
Outstanding. The food is the ONLY REAL barbeque I've had in this fine state. The only things that aren't gluten free are the obvious: Mac and cheese, cornbread, etc. They are absolutely amazing all the way through. Hint: for kids, if you have more than one, get an adult entree and just split it. Or just take the rest home,
