Mission Street BBQ is the best smoked BBQ in Santa Cruz County. No doubt nothing can compete..brisket is so tender, so juicy..The mac & cheese and the beans are to die for.. they really know how to do it.

Just look at the BBQ smokers in the parking lot...take in the unmistakable aroma of slowly cooked meat. This place is legit!

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.

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

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!
