About Mission BBQ:
MISSION BBQ first opened its doors on September 11, 2011, on the tenth anniversary of the day that changed the world forever. Owners Bill Kraus and Steve Newton opened the restaurant with a mission to give back to American Heroes, who protect, serve and save. They traveled across the country, from Texas to Kansas City, to the Carolinas and St. Louis to master America’s greatest contribution to culinary arts: BBQ! A few favorite menu items include Bay-B-Back Ribs; North Carolina Pulled Pork; and Jalapeno and Cheese Sausage. Each MISSION BBQ location supports and donates proceeds to numerous military charities including the Wounded Warrior Project, USO, Toys for Tots and the Honor Flight Network, as well as the many local police, fire and first responder charities in each of their communities. Every day, at exactly 12 noon, the entire restaurant halts to honor our country by saluting the flag, standing at attention and singing our National Anthem. MISSION BBQ offers customized catering for parties of all sizes, small and large, and has an authentic deuce and half military truck outfitted with a fully operational smoker that can roll in and feed your army.
