Mission BBQ opened its doors for business on September 11, 2011.
Ten years after the world changed forever, in some small way they wanted to change it back.

The founders of Mission BBQ, strive every day to remind everyone what makes Our Country great, which is its heroes.

Two friends passionate about BBQ, patriotic for their country, and who believe in running a business with meaning and purpose, decided to open up the first Mission BBQ with a belief  that 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.

They do what they do for the love of our soldiers, firefighters, police officers, first responders and all our loved ones in service.

The founders of Mission BBQ, Bill Kraus and Steve Newton journeyed across Texas to Kansas City, the Carolinas to St. Louis...to discover the secrets of great BBQ, and they now have 41 locations in 11 states and are still growing.

Everyday they strive to serve 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.

The menu has all the classic and traditional BBQ items you would come to expect, like Brisket, Pulled Pork, Ribs, Smoked Sausage, Smoked Turkey and Pulled Chicken that is available as combo or as a sandwich with a variety of side offerings. The sides include Mac & Cheese, Coleslaw, Green Beans, Brisket Baked Beans and fries to name a few.

Like many places today, Mission BBQ is fast casual, where you walk up, place your order, and when it is ready, they will call your name and you go and grab your tray of food.

The Brisket Sandwich is packed full of delicious brisket, and Mission BBQ does not skimp on the meat, this was served with Brisket Baked beans with large chunks of brisket and french fries.

The Ribs are no joke here either, they literally fell right off the bone, and didn't need any extra BBQ sauce. Every meal is served with a side if sweet cornbread, and on this order of RIbs, my dining guest ordered the Brisket Baked Beans and a side of Collards, which are seasonal.

I'm not usually a fan of pulled chicken, as it tends to be dry, but Mission BBQ does it right with a very flavorful and moist pulled chicken. This was served with Collards and Green Beans & Bacon.

I went with the XXL Combo with Brisket, Pulled Pork and Jalapeno Cheddar Sausage with a side of Maggies Mac & Cheese and Brisket Baked Beans. This was enough for a meat coma, and it was all delicious. The brisket can be ordered wet or dry, and I went with the more flavorful portions of brisket ordered wet.

Stop by at lunchtime, and you might catch them during the daily salute to the Stars and Stripes. At Mission BBQ, they proudly serve those who serve. Stop by and help them complete their Mission.

Mission BBQ is open Monday to Thursday from 11:00 am to 9:00 pm, Friday and Saturday they are open till 10:00 pm, and on Sunday they open at 11:30 pm and close at 8:30 pm.

DeVine Wine and Grill

Devine Wine & Grill was originally started in 2015 by two UCF grads Mike DiAlexander and Kale Bernath. They envisioned an American tapas style eatery in Oviedo with a selection of fine wines and craft cocktails with a menu put together by Chef Michael Sorensen.

Fast forward to 2017 and the establishment had a grand re-opening with new owners Shawna and Nate Simms. Not long after the ownership change, a chef change was also put into the mix with Chef Stephen Montalvo.

At DeVine Wine & Grill, they take pride in making everything from scratch, and try to hand make as much as possible. From desserts to charcuterie the “foodie philosophy” starts with using the freshest seasonal ingredients from local farms, while presenting them in unique and interesting ways that offers something everyone can enjoy.

Chef Stephen has put together quite a menu that is perfect for the tapas style food to be shared and enjoyed with wine. They have a great selection of small and shareable plates like crab cakes, octopus, flatbreads, Ahi Tuna and fondue. If you require something more, they have that as well, with pan roasted chicken, bronzino, salmon, filet medallions and even a roasted duck

Of course the Wine portion here is highlighted by the interactive Enomatic Wine Machines. The extensive and unique wine selection here is available by the glass, the bottle, and through the cutting edge Enomatic wine dispensing machines. DeVine Wine & Grill’s goal is to serve rare but approachable wine from all regions of the world.

The establishment also features a full liquor bar, craft beers, specialty cocktails, and a unique and extensive wine portfolio. With a contemporary menu design, polished restaurant, and a team of hospitality experts, they are looking to raise the dining experience in Oviedo.


The Enomatic Wine Machines are the first thing to catch your eye upon entry to Devine Wine & Grill. They have a large variety of wines available to sample from the machine, and by the glass or bottle as well. 

If wine is not your thing, they serve up some fine cocktails and craft brews here as well. The Gardener's Gimlet on the left features Rosemary infused gin, Pomegranate Simple Syrup, Tonic, Lemonade and fresh squeezed lime. A classic Old Fashioned is on the right.

The Grilled Octopus is served in pool of Extra Virgin Olive Oil and features fennel, onion, capers and micro dill. The flavor and texture of this Octopus was pretty amazing, I’d say it’s in my top 5.

We Really enjoyed the Fried Green Tomatoes also with a Panko breading, greens and a datil mayo sauce over the top. 

This was quite simply amazing, and one of the better Steak Frites I've had in quite some time with hand cut Truffle Parmesan fries, a perfectly grilled and tender filet with a side of balsamic ketchup.

The Truffle Mac and Cheese at DeVine is pretty amazing as well. This is a large portion, that is great to share and is listed on the menu under accompaniment section. This is not to be missed when you visit here. 

I’m a sucker for good Bronzino, and it is not readily available in Central Florida for some odd reason, but the Bronzino with truffle white bean puree, escolar salad, and lemon garlic aioli was quite phenomenal at Devine Wine & Grill.

At DeVine they are always striving to create a memorable experience for every guest and they aim to excite your taste buds as well as educate your palate and mind. Chef Stephen has put together a fine menu of eclectic and seasonal foods that are designed to be shared and create a modern spin on the traditional upscale dining experience all year-round.

They serve brunch on Sunday with bottomless Mimosas, Sangria and Bloody Mary’s with a changing menu of made from scratch specialty breakfast items. Happy hour is daily, Tuesday through Saturday from 3:00 pm to 6:00 pm with $3 glasses of house wine, $3 sangria, $3 well liquors, $1 off draft beer.

Devine Wine & Grill is open from Tuesday to Thursday from 3:00 pm to 10:00 pm. Friday and Saturday they are open from 3:00 pm to 11 pm, and Sunday Brunch is served from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm.
