We have traveled to Texas and sampled some amazing brisket. Mission Street BBQ has some of the best. The sauces for the meats are as good as the quality of meet. Love the brisket. It is not inexpensive, but fantastic bbq!

We stopped in on a Sunday afternoon. There were probably 6 people in front of us, and it took quite a while to get to the front of the line. The reason for this is that they had one person taking the orders and running the cash register and also running the beer counter. If someone wanted to sample some beers before deciding which one they want it, the entire line had to wait for them to finish before the next person could be served. And if you wanted a second beer, you had to stand in the line again, and wait a good 20 minutes just to get a beer.

I find no fault with the guy running the register and the beer counter, he was doing his job as quickly and efficiently as he could. But simply setting up a second person over at the beer counter would have made things go much faster. Having two cash registers set up would be a very simple fix.

That said, the food was excellent and we enjoyed the band. I would have liked a second beer, but wasn't willing to wait around for it.

Had the Brisket and Hot Link. Both were absolutely amazing. Definitely would return and the hot bbq sauce on side was a great addition.

We have had takeout a few different times and the food has been consistently great. We have tried the brisket~outstanding~ baby back ribs, tri tip, and the chicken it so flavorful. The cole slaw is not watered down with mayo but crisp and delicious. Never disappointed.

Loved everything about this place! Pulled pork sandwich was delicious, and surprisingly their bread was a standout part of the sandwich! Seasoned, flavorful, soft, and a bit grilled and buttered which really added a whole new element to the sandwich. Very relaxed environment, no table service, pay at the counter first and then choose your own seating. Small place but the seating turns over quickly. We went on a night with live music which was also so fun! 27 craft beers on tap as well.
