This place has some of the best brisket I've ever had. The chicken is also great! I'm also a sucker for good garlic bread & this place delivers!

We regularly drive 45 minutes to Santa Cruz to get take out here despite there being plenty of BBQ locally..Best potato salad I have ever had

Mission St. BBQ puts every single place I've eaten at in my 55 years to shame. We got the Brisket, Pulled pork, & hot links & every single bite was a transcendent experience.

It’s another great day to be together

When the beer is cold and the pits are hot, people tend to gather. That’s a truth as old as time, and one that’s near and dear to our hearts. Grab a friend, a beer, and a seat, and join us in celebrating the power of fire and time in the most authentic way possible.
