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 eat here a lot when I travel. Each person I encounter is knowledgeable about Celiac, and never made me feel like a burden! The French fries are in a dedicated fryer, and the turkey is delicious! The Texas BBQ sauce is the only of the 6 that contains gluten. The food is delicious and the customer service is exceptional!

I met the founders at their first location in Glen Burnie. At that time all the sauces had gluten - even the cole slaw had gluten! Since then, they have revised the recipes and now nearly everything is gluten-free. They do have some desserts and specials with gluten and the Texas Twang sauce is still made with flour. However, gluten is now the exception not the rule, and they are careful to avoid cc.

This is now one of my go-to places. Ownership and staff listen to customer feedback and they go out of their way to cater to regulars. They also surprise random people with free meals. The food is of high quality and everything is smoked at the store. Best smoked turkey I've ever had.

They seem to be very aware if GF and cross contamination. all of their BBQ sauces are GF but one. they are always very friendly

you do have to watch them and follow the making of your food. twice I had to send my order back bcz the gave me cornbread. they changed their gloves and made my order again. I spoke to the manager about having a meeting about the importance of gluten free. he said they have training, he apologized for the error...then one of his employees put a brownie in my bag. he looked at him and said, she can't eat that. I think it's time for another gluten free training meeting

I have been to this location as well as the one in Columbia, Md and they take Gluten Free VERY seriously(!) ๐Ÿ˜Š this is one place where saying you need GF doesn't make you feel like an "inconvenience" and you don't sacrifice menu selection or the deliciousness of their food just because it's GF! Their food is excellent and there service is as well!

Been there twice since they opened. Did a knock out job the first time including requesting kitchen staff clean their areas and change gloves. Second visit, communication break down must have occurred and when called up to get my order there was cornbread on my plate. They quickly addressed the problem and made me a clean order. food is really tasty and glad to have another GF option near work.

They offer pulled, pork, brisket, sausage, turkey, chicken, and ribs. Go to the checkout counter and there is a gf menu there. There are now 5 different sauces that are gf. KC is my favorite. They do not offer gf buns, but their salad greens are of good quality. The salad can be topped with meat and then BBQ sauce can be your dressing. Delish!

I have eaten here 3 times over the past year and a half. First time was great, I did not get sick on the pulled pork. The second time I found a macaroni noodle in the middle of my serving of pulled pork. The third time, I got violently ill about 2 hours after eating pulled pork and cold slaw.

Visited here while traveling to Nashville Opryland area & visited because this app stated it was a gluten free option. This is a counter service restaurant. The cashier that took our order seemed impatient that we needed some time to look at the menu as we’ve never eaten here. We explained to her our daughter was celiac & we needed a gf menu. Daughter ordered a half rack of baby back ribs & the green beans from the gf menu. The cashier shouts the order to the kitchen & said gluten free. Food was not marked as gluten free. Daughter loved her meal BUT!!! had a bad reaction after eating here & was incredibly sick a few hours after eating the bbq. Therefore - I do not recommend for celiacs as I do not think they take precautions to ensure it’s gluten free or safe from cross contamination.

Food is delicious but Im giving only 4 stars because my entire order needed to be gluten free and more than half the order was not only gluten free but just totally wrong. Called the restaurant before we left the parking lot and they redid the entire order and gave us some extra food for free. They corrected it and it was delicious, just be careful and check your order before you eat. I think they were just overwhelmed with the number of people ordering at that same time.

Pulled pork, cole slaw and fries were fabulous! All but two of the sauces were GF.

The highlight was being there at 12 noon and everyone stands to salute the flag while they play the National Anthem and honor our men and women of the military.

Delicious!!! We had the spare ribs, moist brisket, pulled chicken, jalepeno cheese sausage, brisket green beans, and French fries (dedicated fryer!!). All sauces are gluten free with the exception of one. My favorite was the Memphis flavor! All was delicious! We had plenty to take back to the hotel. Definitely just let them know you have celiac!!

Best brisket and fries I’ve had in a long time! And I’m picky about my fries. Ha. The flavor of the meat was incredible on its own, and with the smoky bbq sauce I added, it was top notch. Wish I lived closer!!

The team at Mission BBQ was so friendly and helpful. It’s seldom I encounter this level of friendliness and service. Very impressive!

They have their own dedicated gluten free menu, the staff was knowledgeable about the gluten free process, and they made sure their kitchen knew a gluten free order was coming back.

I had the pulled pork and fries. It was all delicious! All of their sauces except one are gluten free. They only have one fried item:fries. Which makes them safe! (Delicious)

The service was delightful and the food was delicious.

Might want to tell them a few extra times that you need gluten free - cashier and also tell the line if you don’t hear and see the cashier so it. Never saw that they cross contaminated me but a few times they took my tray and made me a new one after i/they asked if it was gluten free on pick up. Probably been here a 30 times so far. Never sick afterwards. And they have some cool sodas that I haven’t seen since childhood!

I like the lean brisket and cream soda (not together)

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!!!

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 deฤ‡or, too.

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.
