Mission BBQ… Giving Back

Mission BBQ… “Giving Back”


You give. Go above and beyond. Protect our lives, liberty, homes, and community. At Mission BBQ, we’re right there with you helping out with time, service, fundraising, and great food to fuel those extra efforts. It’s the right thing to do, and we really believe in these missions below. Thanks.”


I reside in Clarksville, TN the home of Ft Campbell 101st Airborne Division.  Mission BBQ recently opened here and I decided to interview the manager for this article.  Both managers are retired military.   He was extremely excited that I had thought to do this and likewise; I am excited to find a Restaurant that supports our Heroes.  I have had 3 meals at the establishment and each time the food has been wonderful and the staff is ready to serve you.  They even watch to see if you need a tray picked up or refills your beverages.

The walls of the Restaurant are decorated with various items from different branches of the military, first responders, police officers and firefighters.  The manager will tell you stories of what each means and why the item is on the wall.  Each week on the Mission BBQ website, a story of a Hero is revealed.  Below is their story about how they came about.


Our Story

Mission BBQ opened its doors for business on September 11, 2011.

Ten years after our world changed forever, in some small way we wanted to change it back.

As the founders of Mission BBQ, we strive every day to remind everyone what makes Our Country great—its heroes.

Who are we? Two friends passionate about BBQ, patriotic for Our Country, and who believe in running a business with meaning and purpose.

We believe there is nothing more American than BBQ. And nobody more American than the brave men and women who have sworn to protect and serve Our Communities and Our Country. We do what we do for the love of our soldiers, firefighters, police officers, first responders—all our loved ones in service.

We set across this great land from Texas to Kansas City, the Carolinas to St. Louis…to discover the secrets of great BBQ.

Every day we strive to serve you authentic BBQ made from the freshest, most delectable ingredients and serve it to you in a patriotic dining room filled with tributes to those who’ve made Our Country great, given to us by the people who earned them. Stop by at lunchtime, and you might catch us during our daily salute to the Stars and Stripes.

We don’t do any of this because we have to. It’s because we want to.

At Mission BBQ, we are Proudly Serving Those Who Serve. Come help us complete Our Mission.
