Canton: Mission BBQ

Mission BBQ is a small chain with four locations in Maryland, one in Pennsylvania, one in Richmond, VA and one in Wilmington, NC. They’re focused on giving back to the community and having a strong sense of American pride. Not only are you enjoying great food, you can feel good about it too.

When I’m hungover, a sandwich will usually do the trick. I had a friend visiting from out of town and she wanted pulled pork for lunch, combine that with my sandwich hangover cure – I knew exactly where to take her. We drove over to Canton for some of my favorite BBQ in the city.

Unfortunately this was not on one of those warm Sunday’s we have had recently so we had to eat inside. The establishment is filled with memorabilia from local colleges as well as a Maryland state flag and the US flag. The dining style is fast casual, you order at the counter and they call your name when the food is ready.

The menu is small with only five sandwich options, but that doesn’t make the food any less delicious. My friend who was craving pulled pork ordered the NC Pulled Pork which was a sandwich topped with coleslaw. She said this satisfied her craving but she just wanted to go back for more the next day, it was that good. She topped the sandwich with one of the amazing BBQ sauces that are offered.

My other friend ordered the Turkey Sandwich. She said it was good once she added some BBQ sauce, however she prefers turkey sliced thin and this was not what she expected.

I ended up ordering the Chopped Brisket which is marinated in their Memphis Belle BBQ sauce. I have no idea how long that meat marinated for but it was flavorful and delicious. The meat was tender and the roll soaked up all of the excess sauce. Some of the best brisket I’ve ever had.

Then, there’s the option to make your sandwich a combo with the addition of a side and a fountain drink. We each did this and got the fries. You are handed a generous portion of fries alongside your sandwich and they are delicious. They are skin on and just thin enough where they get crispy but still retain the potato flavor. I dipped mine in the Alabama sauce and it paired well.
