Mission BBQ will open its second location on Friday, Nov. 16, in the Nottingham area of Perry Hall. To celebrate the expansion, this socially conscious restaurant will donate all proceeds to the Wounded Warrior Project.
A grand-opening ceremony will be held on Monday, Nov. 19, with a ribbon-cutting ceremony and a live performance of "The Star Spangled Banner."
The singing of the National Anthem is a daily routine at Mission BBQ's original restaurant in Glen Burnie, pictured. At noon each day, employees and diners pause, with hands over hearts, to listen to a taped version of the song. It's quite a moving experience.
That practice will continue at the new store in The Festival at Perry Hall, 4132 E. Joppa Rd. Hours are 11 a.m.-9 p.m. daily.
But let's not forget about the food. Mission BBQ offers a menu of delicious All-American barbecue, featuring brisket, pulled pork, sliced turkey, ribs, and more, and signature sauces such as Memphis Belle, St. Louis Red, Texas Twang, and even Maryland Bay-B-Que. Sides like mac-n-cheese and green beans and bacon are made from scratch.
Owners Steve Newton and Bill Kraus traveled around the country, sampling a variety of barbecue, to develop their menu. They're likable guys, and you're likely to see them when you visit the restaurant.
The restaurant is also committed to honoring local fireman, police officers, rescue units, and the military with fund-raisers and special events during the year.
Mission BBQ is going to be a great addition to the Baltimore County restaurant scene.
