In business since the 1960s, Wilson’s Bar-B-Que beckons visitors with a robust menu highlighted by tender, hickory-smoked ribs and brisket doused in sweet sauce. Sample cylindrical proteins with expertly cooked polish or hot-style pork sausage links, served with a choice of sides including baked beans, coleslaw, and deep-fried napkins. Sweet-potato or buttermilk pies ensconce sweet teeth with creamy fillings, while throats parched from debating which meat is the most macho find respite in a refreshing iced tea or fountain drink. Large plasma televisions adorn the log-cabin-style walls, and breezy outdoor seating encourages fresh-air feasts and postmeal caveman roars. While not included with this Groupon, a number of longneck brews are also available.

About Wilson's Bar-B-Que
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.
