In 1961, J.B. Wilson founded his own barbecue eatery and populated the menu with recipes of his own design. These recipes remained unchanged throughout the years, as did his signature welcome—greeting customers in a top hat and cane. When he fell ill in 2004, he passed the business’s reins to his close friend Amos Adetula. Afraid that J.B’s recipes would otherwise be lost forever, Amos graciously agreed to lead the restaurant into the future. His legacy now secure, Mr. Wilson passed away three days later.

Today, Amos still makes all the original sauces for the restaurant's ribs, brisket, and pork himself, including the sweet sauce that adorns the restaurant’s signature baked beans. Savory dishes complement sweet-potato or buttermilk pies, which the staff makes by hand from scratch each day. A number of longneck brews stands at the ready to cool diners’ tongues in the wake of smoked meats, hot baked potatoes, and periodic fire-breathing competitions. Inside the original location on Apache, large plasma televisions adorn the exposed log cabin–style walls, hanging above booths bedecked in the original black and red checkered style. Outside the eatery's confines, breezy outdoor seating around an original built-in concrete fire pit encourages frequent fresh-air feasts. When lovers of Wilson's require the food to come to them, culinary crews transport the eatery’s fare with full offsite catering services for events such as tailgate parties, where staffers set up and break down after the meal.

Beneath glittering rows of crystal ropes that hang from the ceiling, the blue, green, and purple tones of Hydro Bar & Grill bathe visitors in a cool light.

At Bamboo Pho & Springroll, fragrant steam rises from large bowls of pho noodle soup filled with beef, chicken, or seafood. These bowls have earned notice from the Star-Telegram's DFW.com website, which named the restaurant’s pho one of the Five Hottest Dishes in DFW for couples to share. In another review, DFW.com professed to be "in love" with the pho’s "warm, complex flavors."

In addition to Vietnamese dishes such as pho and spring rolls, the restaurant dishes out Asian fusion cuisine such as lo mein, Korean barbecue ribs, pad thai, and steamed jasmine rice.

Though the cuisine leans toward the traditional, the decor is sleek and modern. Beneath high ceilings, a curved bar with glossy stone tiles lines up refreshing cocktails. The nearby hostess stand lights up with a chandelier whose beads resemble a fuzzy dandelion just before its seeds are whisked away by a breeze. All surfaces, from the bar to the tables are topped in granite, adding to the modern feel while providing protection from diners who like to cut their meat with hacksaws.

Light streams in through the floor-to-ceiling windows at the front of Glazed Doughnuts & Cafe, glinting off cushy high-backed chairs and sleek wooden tables before mingling with the crystals in the ornate chandelier. Before taking a seat or levitating next to the bookshelf, customers can peruse the mouth-watering menu, selecting treats including tantalizingly fresh scratch-made doughnuts, croissants, and muffins, carefully stacked sandwiches, and draughts of energy-boosting coffee.

Gelato jockeys at The Sweet Spot scoop flavors such as chocolate, Oreo, and mango by the cup or quarts. Frozen-yogurt flavors ranging from vanilla to strawberry-kiwi swirl into containers, and shaved ice tantalizes palates with low-fat fruit or fruit-and-gelato combos. Plentiful 16-ounce smoothies round out the eatery's coterie of frozen treats, while a wealth of soft drinks such as Gatorade and Snapple quench thirst more effectively than licking dew off the grass. Guests craving an alternative to frozen treats can scarf down one of The Sweet Spot's ham or turkey paninis, which come paired with chips and a pickle.
