If BBQ is you thing, this is your place

Mission BBQ is part of a growing chain of restaurants. They have only been in business 4 years and are currently located in only 5 states. Upon first entering I was a little confused and not quite sure how to proceed and order. The cashier was obviously irritated that I was not quite sure and... read more

We continue to come here almost once a week because our grandsons love it and the staff is always very friendly with them. If the owner is there he always comes by to talk to the kids. The Carolina pulled pork is my favorite and the portions are very generous. The baked beans are some of the best I have... More

Stumbled on this place from TripAdvisor reviews and I'm glad I did! This is some of the best BBQ I've had in a long, long, time. I tried the 3-meat sampler and it was amazing! The food is fresh, the staff is great, and they really support our military and local heroes- can't go wrong at Mission BBQ!

It was a Sunday afternoon, and I was looking for something other than the typical fast food. I spotted Mission BBQ while driving and remembered hearing someone mention it in a conversation. I decided to stop and get takeout. The place had a good crowd inside, and outside, with the sounds of everyone seeming to have a good time. I... More

Yes, the atmosphere is great - patches from every police and military group in the area, VERY friendly staff and the pledge of allegiance at Noon, but the ribs... not so much. They're simply ok, nothing great - all the ribs I've eaten are moist, falling off the bone and slathered in BBQ sauce - at Mission, the ribs very... More

My friends and I often visit mission bbq for lunch. I get the moist beef brisket sandwich combo with the Mac and cheese and the cole slaw. Everything I've had here is delicious!! The food isn't the thing that makes me love this place though. We were there right around noon. The restaurant played the national anthem and showed an... More

You order at a counter and sit where you want. Lunchtime can be crowded. Very good BBQ - brisket, pulled park & chicken, ribs, etc. I prefer crisper fries but they tasted good. Next time I'll ask for crispier and see if they can do so like 5 Guys will. You have to like a business that supports the military... More

This is one of the friendliest places around. The food is great and the floor assistants are fantastic, especially with kids. Both of my grandsons, when asked where they want to eat, always say "Mission BBQ."

Tried Mission BBQ at two different locations (Columbia and Glen Burnie) to see if there were any discernible differences but found they came from the same mold - no pun intended. Had the pulled pork with a hot sauce, not labeled. A little soupy with way too much BBQ sauce that soaked the bun to the point where you had... More

We love this place. The meat is great, but they seriously need to get a better barbecue sauce. Not one of the sauces is sweet. We love the owner and Ule who is one of our favorite workers there. The brisket is to die for.
