I ordered off the GF menu and they specifically asked if I had celiac, and then explained that they would clean all surfaces, change their gloves, use clean utensils, use a dedicated GF fryer for my fries, avoid and areas where bread is processed, and explained to me what sauces I could and could not safely use. They were extremely thurough and understand what celiac is. I'm so greatful to have this place around!

I have eaten at the Gurnee Mission BBQ multiple times. In the past, I’ve been fine and have noticed zero issues. This past visit, however, left me sick, very likely due to cross contamination. I noticed that employees were switching “stations” regularly while we waited, so the person giving out the orders (and opening the containers to show what was in each) had been handling the cornbread just seconds before without changing their gloves. They do seem to have a set process for dealing with gluten free, but it seemed as though certain employees didn’t seem to follow it.

Staff knowledgeable. Separate menu with good options - pulled pork, chicken, baked beans, fries are all good options. Some sauces are also gluten free. Inform when ordering - they will change gloves.

Gf Menu, attentive staff great food.

Tip: get sauce in Togo containers and not ones on table due to possible public cross contamination. Exercise caution at beverage area, suggest bottled water or pop to be sure.

I love this food. It has its own menu with a lot of items on it. The treat GLUTEN Free like it’s a real thing and make extra sure to be helpful. The food is excellent and the service is even better. I love having a variety of food and sauces to chose from! Thank you Mission!

All I can say is yummmm. They have a separate gluten free menu up at the registers if you ask for it. All of the regular meats are smoked so they are all gluten free. They have a dedicated fryer for their fries which are naturally gluten free. All of their sauce but one is gluten free. The sauces are all on the tables, but you can ask for pre packed ones as well. I got the pulled pork with fries and coleslaw. It was all amazing!! Felt very safe eating there! Will definitely be going back!

Our local Mission BBQ is so careful if you are celiac. When you order and tell them you have to be gluten, they holler out gluten free order. The person preparing the food, takes off the gloves, washes their hands and double gloves. I have never had a problem here.

We were told that all their meat and all their barbecue sauces are gluten free. They told the kitchen that we had Celiac’s and they cleaned their counter and switched to a clean knife to cut the meat for us. Their fryer for fries is only for fries so it is gluten free as well. We really enjoyed their food and felt like they handled it safely!

Great food, great service, and super clean. As soon as I finished ordering the person who took my order yelled back "gluten free" several times and I watching the line all change their gloves and get new utensils. Ribs were delicious and a staff member even came by to let me know 5/6 sauces at my table were gluten free and which one to avoid. Highly recommend.
