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!

I eat here often. The cooks change their gloves once the cashier tells them “Gluten-free order coming back”, They show you your order before closing your takeout box. Have a separate menu for GF. Staff & managers are always friendly & helpful. Always yummy, fresh, GF food.

The brisket and turkey were delicious! The green beans were a little spicy, which I was not expecting. Since there were not a ton of other GF options for side dishes, I was disappointed by the green beans. The fries were good, not great or anything unique. I liked that the employee who took my phone order wrote “gluten free” at the top of the ticket, which seemed like a good way to communicate to the prep line and made me think they may have taken extra steps that I’m not aware of.

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!!!

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.

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 dećor, 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.
