We have been going to Mission BBQ for almost a year! Awesome BBQ, very friendly staff and a lot of quality menu options. Their brisket is the best in the area by far. You can get it wet (more marbled cut) or dry (a bit leaner). Great sides, and they always have a special. The staff is SUPER friendly, and... More

The BBQ was not bad. The place is not cheap. The military truck in the parking lot was cute -- but I was a bit surprised how expensive it was. We went there once, didn't think the value was very good so I don't see us going back there in the future.

I had dinner here with a friend and it was awesome. The manager and the rest of the staff were so kind and checked in on us more than once. The food was amazing. I will definitely be going back soon :)

This is like fast food, now don't get me wrong the food comes out fast! It's quality is fantastic but above that is the cause. A portion of the money is giving to Wounded Warrior Project. I'm a vet but as you eat this fine meal think of those that can benefit from you eating this meal. You need more... More

Owned and operated by veterans, Mission has a wonderful spirit of honor, respect, and gratitude for the military that is reinforce by the wonderful staff. The BBQ is delicious - the baybaque sauce is a Marylander's dream come true - but the sides are just ok. I'll definitely be frequenting this place when I'm in town.

Late lunch, full parking lot,line out the door but I trust my friend from Texas. The line dwindled quickly due to very efficient ordering and food service even in what must have been trying conditions. The menu, however, is BBQ in several varieties with numerous choices of sides, plenty of beer offerings and soda. The work is already done prior... More
