The Wilson Family


Barbecue is not just about the food — it’s also about the culture. Local owner, Jonathan Wilson, noticed this was missing in Jacksonville, TX, and gave up corporate America to meet this need for his city. Founded upon faith, boldness, and a passion for delicious meats smoked to perfection, JW’s Barbecue is proud to be serving East Texas since 2020. We love being a part of the community, engaging with our local people and cultivating a menu and atmosphere that serves them. With a wide array of meats, sides, taters and specialty sandwiches, you can’t go wrong here!

Find us in Jacksonville, TX at 1015 E. Rusk St (Hwy 79) across the street from the Texas Basket Factory. We are open on Tuesday-Saturday from 11am until sold out. Follow our social media pages for updates to our operating hours, menu, and special events. See y’all soon!

“So, whether you eat or drink, or whatever you do, do all to the glory of God.”

1 Corinthians 10:31
