One of my secret indulgences is some good ole BBQ. I love everything from ribs, pulled pork, brisket and some delicious sausage. So when I discovered Mission BBQ I believe it was my “mission” to devour everything on the menu, and I believe I am getting close to accomplishing the goal. It pains me to admit that since discovering Mission BBQ in Northeast Philadelphia located on 11000 Roosevelt Blvd it is my go to lunch spot every single Friday.
The menu comprises of a variety of options from sliced meats ranging from Turkey, Salmon, Pulled Chicken & Pork, Brisket and smoky Sausage from Jalapeño & Cheese and Classic. Piled high sandwiches like Chopped Brisket marinated in their made to order Memphis Belle Sauce, Pulled Pork Traditional or North Carolina Style, Piled High Pulled Chicken and their Darn Good Turkey.
Of course you can’t forget about the sides like Green Beans and Bacon , Baked Beans with Brisket and the Cheesy Maggie’s Mac & Cheese, Fresh cut french fries and Seasonal Veggies. And if you think your leaving without dessert think again because they serve some of the delicious seasonal desserts ever. My favorite was the bread pudding during those cold winter months, my mouth is just watering thinking about it!
There is a little bit of something to satisfy everyones tastebuds. The meat is so full of smoky flavors that will have you yearning for more, tender and juicy is how I can honestly describe the food.
My number one favorite meal on the menu is the Traditional Pulled Pork, I have never had pulled pork so delicious in my life. The smokiness of the meat just does a dance in my mouth. Even though everything on the menu is super good it something about that Pulled Pork that calls my name every time.
I recently had a chance to visit Mission BBQ and had the most amazing dining experience, from warm staff hospitality down to a belly-busting meal. Not only is the food super delicious but the history that this incredible company was built upon is phenomenal. During my visit I was given a tour around the restaurant and in- depth history lesson about Mission BBQ and how they are all about giving back to the community by and serving those who have made it their mission to serve this country.
