MISSION BBQ opened for business on September 11, 2011, the tenth anniversary of the day our world changed forever. With a passion for BBQ and a love of Country, founders Bill Kraus and Steve Newton set out to honor, support and give back to Our American Heroes — those who Protect, Serve and Save. From Texas to Kansas City, the Carolinas to St. Louis, they discovered the secrets of authentic BBQ made from the freshest, most delectable ingredients. Then, brought it home to serve in a patriotic dining room filled with tributes to those who’ve made our nation great. Every day at exactly 12 noon, the entire restaurant stands at attention to sing our National Anthem. Proudly Serving Those Who Serve, we do what we do for the love of our soldiers, firefighters, police officers and first responders. Come help us complete Our Mission.
