We had a wonderful experience with our half chicken and pulled pork sandwich meals. FF and green beans were exceptional,. Chicken was so moist and tender absolutely the best!!

Ordered burnt ends were very dry and stringy, guess will stay with my favorite location in Kansas City for this cut of meat. The mac and cheese were very good and very cheesy.

Mission has consistently good BBQ and ownership that supports the community. I recently had dinner with some colleagues and it was no exception. The food was served quickly and was well prepared. Tables are spaced appropriately for COVID safety. I will keep going back

A coworker went and got a takeout order for her and I one day, and I have to say I was impressed. The pulled pork was really good, I didn’t even put sauce on it and it was great on its own. The green beans...were seasoned really well. The cornbread was my favorite part of the meal. It’s sweet, but not overly so, and wasn’t dry like some can be. Overall a great meal and portions were good for the price.More

First visit. Nice, Clean, roomy restaurant. It's like cafeteria style where you place your order and wait to get it and then take it to your table, which I prefer over being seated and waited on. The staff was friendly, the food was great and...will be back for sure.More

We went on a Sunday afternoon which was extremely busy, but still had a pleasant experience. The service was pretty fast for being crowded. The food was good. I'd say the prices were a little higher for the amount of food given, but we left...happy. We are a military family and were a little disappointed that a place that seems to be so proud to display all of their military trophies and seems to be military supportive, didn't offer a military discount. So that was strange. I would say give it a try, if you want some good barbecue eats.More

Mission BBQ is a chain BBQ restaurant that does an outstanding job with the food, service, and atmosphere. The BBQ is delicious and they have a wide assortment of sauces to please any BBQ lover. The restaurant is decorated with a huge assortment of military...and fire/police/ems memorabilia. Mission BBQ treats veterans to a free dessert at every visit and free food on Veteran's Day. We love this place!More

We arrived into Roanoke and had a taste for barbecue for lunch on a Friday. We drove straight to Mission Barbecue after reading the outstanding reviews. We were not disappointed. The barbecue was outstanding. Many side dishes which we also enjoyed. It’s hard to choose...because there’s too many delicious choices. We will definitely eat here again at any future visit to the East Coast.More

First time visiting this restaurant, won’t be the last. You order at the counter and find a table, pick up your food at the counter. We had the pork sandwich, pork slider and fries. Food was really good and tender. At noon they started playing...the national anthem and asked everybody to stand, put your hand on your heart and honor the flag. I’ve never been in a restaurant where this was done. Talked to the manager after lunch and he explained how the restaurant was founded. Very nice people and a very good cause.More

My neighbor is gluten free and recommended this restaurant to me because I had gluten free guests. Mission BBQ was accommodating and told me which sauces were gluten free.
