I had heard about this BBQ place that honored those who served and finally got to visit. Not knowing what to expect, I was touched at the walls filled with photos and items of those who have served to protect us. As a daughter of an 84 year old veteran it was emotional. I wish I had more time to... More

Came for lunch and it was crowded! No problem. The staff moved everyone through quickly and comfortably! Though crowded, no one went without seating. The food is excellent! The "Hostess" constantly asked us if we needed anything and was willing to get anything we needed. Highly recommend this Patriotic BBQ experience!

We were in the shopping center to shop at the flooring store, when the tantalizing aroma wafting from Mission BBQ drew us in. We were very pleased with our impromptu dinner. The service was friendly and fast. The prices were reasonable as well. We ordered three combo meals with drinks for $38. The food was very good. Each combo entree... More

My girlfriend had their pulled chicken and it was the most, juicy and moist BQ chicken I've had and like the brisket, it was very flavorful as well. For the sides, we had their... More

lots of choices and sauces so every one in your group should find something they love. We tried all the sauces as you can apply them at the table. Laid back and very fast and casual. All were good. I would def recommend this as a great choice.

The food here is good, the place is usually crowded and loud. I feel that the prices are a little high but you do get a lot of food.

Tasted barbecue and sides at a catered event and everything was delicious. Service excellent. Had pulled pork, chicken, down south seasoned string beans, coleslaw, southern Mac n cheese, and the best cornbread south of the mason Dixie line. I am a southern girl and I know the taste of good food. This place has good food. Read their mission statement.... More

With fast service and great employees, Mission BBQ is a fun place to grab lunch or dinner. They have great BBQ options (including both lean and moist brisket, just in case you want to be a little healthier) and lots of good side options. The atmosphere is patriotic, with respect paid to America's heroes. Around lunchtime they do a daily... More
