The Mission is totally my favorite place in Boston. When you get older, it's the little things that matter. The service is great and put up with my drunk ass regularly.
The drinks are awesome. Great beer selection and they even infuse their own tequila and vodka. The Mission Arnold Palmer is ta die for.
The food is also awesome for a bar - the burgers are amazing! There was a period of time where they must have had a new cook because the burgers were like, burnt on the outside yet still cooked perfect (medium rare) on the inside. Thought it was just an off night but nope, it was happening on the reg. Wasn't good - but had one recently and it was perfect. The chicken tenders are clearly made in house and come with buffalo sauce on the side. Also love the Steak & Bleu salad, chowder, calamari, Â steak tips and chicken saltimbocca (yummm).
My only issue with the mission is there is one waitress who is horrible. Her name starts with a G or something. She never brings water and you literally have to dispatch a courier pigeon to find her. She's super sweet, but for the love of god, follow up on your tables. Amanda, however, is the best!!
For those of you missing the Choppin' Block you are out of your minds. That place was nasty. What a dump! The neighborhood is a lot better without it!!! Although, if you loved the Choppin' Block this is definitely not your scene. Which in the end, is good news for me.
Came in for a late lunch while in the area on Memorial Day 2013. Â Sat at the bar and got OK service from the bartender - quick, nice.
Got the Avocado and Goat Cheese sandwich, which overall wasn't bad. Â However, don't say goat cheese if your goat cheese is a mayo-consistency spread, rather than solid, yummy chunks of goat cheese. Â That was disappointing on what could have been a great sandwich. Â Their fries are good, but an offer of some malt vinegar and more ketchup (they give you a lot of fries) would have been swell.
Overall, the place is good, if not a little overpriced for their offerings.
