Under the expert eye of owner Leroy Wilson, Wilson’s BBQ fills with the enticing scents of meats slowly smoking over smoldering beds of mesquite wood. On the menu, brisket, lean chopped beef, sausage, and both ribs and baby back ribs vie for attention as diners construct two-meat plates. Alongside helpings of beans and potato salad, tangy barbecue sauce slathers generous protein portions to grant patrons the gloriously sticky hands of an embezzling beekeeper. Between bites, cool waves of Pepsi products or bottled water splash across palates, and slices of Wilson’s homemade sweet-potato pie drop smooth, orange curtains over culinary performances. Happy sighs float from patrons, caroming off the artwork and Texan memorabilia that freckle the walls.
Former IT employee Leroy Wilson used to relegate his passion for grilling up mean barbecue to company outings and house parties, until his growing fan following of friends, co-workers, and strangers with functioning olfactory senses convinced him to roll the dice and open up a restaurant. Since then, Leroy has proudly manned the grill at Wilson’s BBQ swathed in a well-earned cologne of smoked mesquite as he slow-cooks each diner’s meal over wood-fueled flames or his stacks of smoldering Monopoly money. Leroy and his staff glaze meaty morsels with ultra-secret signature sauce and seasoning recipes before heaping them on plates alongside hearty side dishes or piling them high atop sandwiches that Fort Worth Weekly praised in 2008 for their lucid-dream-inspiring flavors.
