Love this place. They change their gloves, clean off the surface, always professional. French frys are the only thing they fry so they are safe.

Staff was knowledgeable and the food was pretty good — meat was a little dry which surprised me but I did not get sick. Had the coke slaw. The Texas sauce has gluten in it so definitely stay out of Texas!

This place is a must go for celiac’s( I am very sensitive) , the manager asked me if I had been there before and I said I haven’t. She broke down each sauce (5/6 of them are gluten free) and explained their process of making the food and everything is made fresh every morning. Awesome gluten free menu to pick from, I ordered brisket and fries and I haven’t been able to find a trust worthy bar b q place in about a year. I highly recommend this place to any celiacs as well as people who are not sensitive to wheat or gluten.

Very accommodating and informative! Separate GF menu and all BBQ sauces other than the Texas Twang are GF! Delicious ribs!

One of the best BBQ places I have experienced. There are a lot of options. Each plate comes with cornbread so you just need to let the staff know about gluten issues when you order.

Ate here on a quick trip to Nashville based on reviews from this site. Place was super clean, staff was great and food was fast and yummy. We ended up eating here the next day too. First day they accidentally put cornbread on my plate, but as soon as I started to comment they took the tray and replaced with all new minus the cornbread. Pulled pork and FRENCH FRIES! Yum. Son who also can't eat gluten enjoyed trying all (minus one that isn't gfree) the bbq sauces. No one had issues either meal.

I was so impressed by the way they handled my food after I informed them I had celiac. They changed their gloves, were very careful in putting my food together, wiped down the prep area, had a dedicated gluten free menu with many options, etc! Food was tasty! I especially enjoyed the pulled pork (all pork no fat) and the cole slaw. Great place!

I'm mildly obsessed with this place. FINALLY someplace I can eat real food when we go out to a movie. The pulled pork is amazing. The fries are gluten free (Yaaaaay!) Just tell them no corn bread- ask them to make it gluten free. They will change their gloves etc. They always do a great job and make me feel like they care. I eat here all the time. Honestly the portions are so huge that my fiancé and I end up splitting a meal sometimes!

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.

The person who took my order didn't seem to understand what Celiac meant so the server put cornbread on my tray. When I said I couldn't eat off that tray the manager was AWESOME! He explained they needed to redo the order, change gloves and clean their work space. The food was safe and oh so delicious. My new favorite place to eat!

Oh my goodness. Very Celiac friendly. As others mentioned they have a separate menu and make an announcement when ordering. Lots of options and sides.My husband and I shared brisket, ribs, fries and coleslaw. Only one sauce isn't GF and that is the "Texas Twang". Wonderful start to vacation.

Staff is very well trained, when I mentioned no bread on my order the cashier asked if I was gluten free before I even told her. Good selection of GF choices but beware the sauces, only 2 of the six are safe. I didn't see a gluten free menu displayed but it's easily found on their website.

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!!

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.

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.

Delicious food, no problems with reaction due to cross contamination, and they have a dedicated fryer for fries! I believe only one of their sauces is not GF because it has Worcestershire sauce in it.

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.

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,

I haven’t gotten this sick in my entire time as a celiac. The lady who took my order told the staff that there was a gluten allergy and she told me which sauces I could have, and promised they would change their gloves. Food was delicious but within a few hours I knew something had gone wrong. They seem wonderful and I’m sure this was just a fluke, but please be aware if you have celiac that this place may not be best.
