Very good barbecue. I have tried about everything and have never been disappointed. The turkey is my favorite. But the ribs are very good as well.

Always friendly. Love the frito pie. Never really crowded when we come at night. Atmosphere is OK, makes more for a quick bite than a comfortable dining experience. Wish they had fries

Food and service was terrific. Had sliced brisket and smoked chicken. Brisket was lean and very tender. Chicken was perfectly smoked. Will return again.

Had a Groupon so thought we would give it a try. The pulled pork was delicious and the chicken was so tender. Love the spicy BBQ sauce. Will be coming back for sure. Glad we tried it.

The ribs and beans combo can top any chain smokehouse I have been too. Living this close to KC/Ct. Louis is something that should be considered as well regarding my previous statement.

Billy Sims BBQ in Springfield MO is the best I have ever had. Tender and moist is always the way! The flavor of the meat is so good you will enjoy it alone without sauce! There are locations in other states which I have not...More

This is an okay BBQ place. Its definitely fast food style BBQ but in a pinch it works. I enjoy the pulled pokrk sandwiches and the baked beans are surprisingly good. Its a bit pricey for what you get though
