    Very good customer service, very cautious of gluten free, a variety of options, and pet friendly. Definitely a place to check out whether you like barbecue or not, there's options for all!

    I had high hopes when I tried Mission BBQ. It seemed as though the employees were really trying to make me a safe meal. Unfortunately the food must not have been completely gluten free. I've been sick for the last two days from it. šŸ˜¢

    Best BBQ in town! I am simple and always get pulled pork or chicken with a side salad. It's delicious and celiac safe. Ask which BBQ sauces are GF. All but 1 of them is GF.

    We have multiple allergies we're dealing with and the cashier and manager could not have been more helpful and accommodating. The pulled pork was terrific and the brisket was to. die. for. We'll be going back!!

    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.

    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.

    Great attention to detail. Employees wiped down work station and changed gloves. This place gets it. Along with being celiac friendly - the food is just amazing. I also am really proud of the way they acknowledge those who served/are serving. This is the way veterans should be treated everywhere. I wish I could give this place 6 stars because that's just how great my experience was here.

    Went there today and had pretty much everything on the menu that was GF which was quite a bit. Since there was 5 of us and you order sampler platters it made it great to find what's good on the menu. Well, nothing was bad. Not even the brewed tea, which was some of the best I tasted. My faves were both the Beef and Baby Back Ribs, the pulled pork and jalepeno sausage (which I usually don't do hot foods... but these weren't that hot, green beans and bacon and oooh the beans and brisket! The French fries were perfect and they have 5 GF sauces to try. Other things that we tried were the pulled chicken, salmon, cold slaw. I thought I'd love the brisket, but it was tender and ok if you put sauce on it. The hostess was so nice and was very quick to pull out the GF menu. Def plan on going back.

They have many gluten free options and many gluten free sauces. Lunch was ready very quickly and was delicious! We will be back when we are back in this area. I really wish a Mission BBQ was in our area. And, as a bonus: they hire veterans :)

    This is one of our FAVORITE restaurants!!! They offer a gluten-free menu and it has MANY options. When you order, the kitchen is told a GF order is coming in. We could see them very careful handling our son's order. Best of all, Celiacs can have fries here!!! :) Made from fresh-cut potatoes. Nothing else goes in the frier... there are no breaded items. The BBQ was smoky and delicious. 5 of the 6 BBQ sauces they have are GF. Reasonable prices. Fun atmosphere. Clean as a whistle. Do yourself a favor and GO there, now !!!

    They have a gluten free menu. I didn't ask if they had a dedicated fryer (forgot and just trusted them). Ordered gluten free ribs and french fries. No reaction. I forgot which sauce has gluten (most are gluten free). Personally, I prefer getting takeout and using the BBQ sauces I have at home. You don't get charged extra for gluten free. Service and food is wonderful.

    What an amazingly patriotic restaurant and wonderful gluten free menu, too! Come at noon like we did and your are in for a surprise! All but one BBQ sauces were GF and all is served ala carte. 3 of us chose the delicious Pulled Pork and my hubby & I split a GF Cole Slaw which was kinda bland, but I'm all about the integrity of the GF standard. We'll definitely look for other Mission BBQs as they're hard to beat. Their food, patriotism, attentive & friendly service sure draw the crowds!

I also tried the baked beans, green beans, and French fries and again - delicious. The flavor is really great, and hearing them call "gluten free fries down" is music to the ears.
