I saw the reviews online saying this was a very safe place to go I went to my local missions and they did have gluten-free options on the menu the girl yelled back gluten allergy the man came up and changed his gloves then he proceeded to take a rag and wipe off the counter and take the same rag and wipe off the knife I told my husband that is not going to work my husband assured me that they seem like they knew what they were doing. But that wasn’t the case after eating within 30 minutes to 45 minutes I started feeling sick like I had to throw up my stomach started bloating I look like I was six months pregnant and I had the urge to go to the bathroom I will not be eating here again. Do Better!

The staff was excellent in guiding me to the gluten free menu, notifying the staff of a gluten free order and knowing what bbq sauces I could have. The food was delicious too!!!

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.

Mission offers a gluten free menu and their fries are made in a dedicated fryer. The brisket and ribs were delicious. The fries, baked beans, and coleslaw were great as well. They have a good selection of gluten free options and sauces.

Offering curbside pickup currently.

Excellent food and service!! Changed gloves for my meal. They explained all my options to me so it was clear as to what I could and couldn’t have. It was so nice to have home cut French fries that were safe! Their turkey and Alabama white sauce are perfection. Will definitely be coming back!

Their gf menu is online and from what I can tell is most of their regular menu (not Mac & cheese and a few other items). The meats were so good & tender. We tried the brisket (lean), pulled pork and pulled chicken, fries and baked beans. The sauces in the table are gf. Any questions, check online. It’s a casual, quick service restaurant (order at the counter and sit).

Delicious food! Our cashier double checked everything for us to be sure of what was safe and what wasn't. The fries were fabulous as were the baby back ribs and pulled chicken. We did not need to add barbecue sauce to any of the meat, so I didn't inquire about the sauce being GF. They definitely seemed to be in the know about needs for someone with celiac. Our cashier thanked us for being patient with her at the end of the transaction because she wanted to double check things for me. We thanked HER for her patience with us because that doesn't always happen.

All I can say is amazing! Only thing in fryer are the fries so they are GF! Told the cashier I had a gluten allergy and he immediately went to work telling me what I could have and told the back worker that a GF order was coming up and they switched gloves! Seriously some of the best brisket I’ve ever had!! A must to come to if your in Ft Myers

Safe eating environment. Company policy in place for allergies - food staff changed gloves and foam measuring cup for my meal. Expediter also changed gloves before touching my tray and handing it to me. Food is super delicious and staff is friendly and allergy knowledgeable. Ate there several times during our two week vacation and didn't mind the 45 minute commute. Don't hesitate celiacs and sensitive celiacs.

This is my favorite place in Fort Myers!! My husband and I love this place and eat here all the time! One thing I really missed after my Celiac diagnosis was BBQ. I could never trust anyone with cross contamination anywhere else. When you tell them that you are GF, they know exactly what to do and how to do it right and they don't treat you like it is a huge inconvenience. I am a super sensitive Celiac and I have never gotten sick here. It's so nice to go somewhere to eat and feel like a normal person!

The staff was super knowledgeable and helpful. The food is AMAZING. I tried the baby back ribs, pulled pork, and brisket - and I can't decide which is my favorite because they are all really good! 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. I highly recommend this spot!

The food is wonderful but not as good as the service! They make sure the cooks know it's a gluten free order and never act like it's a bother. Taylor even came to the table to be sure I did not try the only sauce that is not gluten free. I recommend this place to any gf people!

Amazing food and very knowledgeable staff. They even replaced my meal once without me asking when I didn't realize their beef rib had au jus on it before it was served. The manager actually figured it out before I dug into the meal. That says a lot to someone with a bad food allergy. I've eaten here probably 5 times and have never had a reaction. I plan on going back whenever possible.

This place is AWESOME if you are gluten free or have celiacs. They have GF menus right at the register, and the workers know EVERYTHING there is to know about gluten. They even called to the back cooks that they had a gluten free customer in the restaurant. Not to mention, they were ALLL extremely friendly. The baked beans were fantastic. And they also came over and gave us some free fries. EXCELLENT PLACE!

Went because it was on the app. Told cashier I was celiac and one of the cooks came out and listed everything I could have as well as told the kitchen that my order was gluten free. Fries are also gluten free as they are in a separate fryer.

We enjoyed a wonderful meal at Mission BBQ in Winchester. I had the half smoked chicken (yard bird) with fries. Fryer is dedicated, fresh cut fries only. Others in my group had the baked beans and said they were good. I had them add my cornbread to my husband’s meal, no problem. Their lemonade was also good.
