I don’t normally eat at chain restaurants, would prefer to give my money to small business people - and the food tends to be better! However, was famished and couldn’t find a better option when passing through Southington. Mission BBQ was awesome! Ate there twice and besides the GF menu, staff seemed familiar with GF, calling out to the line and prep cooks that the orders were GF. Food was delicious and the only sauce that wasn’t GF was the Texas Twang (on account of having Worcestershire sauce). Will seek out their other locations when I travelling.

"REPEAT AFTER ME GLUTEN FREE" thats whats yelled throughout the completely visible kitchen when preparing my gluten free food. That fills me with confidence. Now I will say generally bbq is gluten free, so when can normally eat it. All of the meats at mission bbq are gluten free, and the only thing they fry is fries which are also gluten free. The person who is in charge on corn bread and Mac n cheese came nowhere near my meal. I will also say mission bbq has both a gluten free menu and and allgerin chart. Just something extra they do to fill you with confidence. I would say a 90% of they menu is gluten free (no not the corn bread or mac n cheese). I love there jalapeño cheddar sausage and fries, my go to meal when I eat out. Taste great and have never been glutened.

Gluten free French fries and coleslaw and meat sampler (2 piece with chicken and brisket). Some of the best meat and southern style sides I’ve ever had!

Amazing gluten free fries and meat. All of the meats are gluten free and amazingly moist. The coleslaw is great as well. One of my favorite road trip stops now going back and forth from Boston to New York City!

For a fast food BBQ restaurant the food was very good. They have a decent size gluten free menu. I had the 1/2 of chicken with 2 sides, coleslaw and baked beans. Their sauces were very good as well. I will definitely be going back.

Amazed as we watched the prep chef wash his hands, the scale and prep area. Read the other reviews because they are right. Fall of the bone ribs you couldn't cut with a knife because it too tender.

Great place!

They have a GF menu - just ask. They'll change gloves to prep your order. Just note 5/6 table sauces are GF - just ask which one isn't

Most of the menu is naturally gluten free, just have to avoid the bread and macaroni. Person taking the order announced to the kitchen that it was gluten free, and they confirmed again when handing it to me.

Mission restaurants seem to be very knowledgeable about cross contamination. No breads but fries are cooked separate. Great food
