First of all this all you can eat BBQ pork, chopped beef, and baked chicken buffet is A DEAL! At 11.95 per person with a nominal charge for drinks this rustic restaurant is located as its said "in the country". I have visited here many times over decades with consistent quality until now. This trip was different and I hope... More

This is a diamond in the rough. During the drive we were concerned, "We couldn't get there from here!" The parking lot was full. We weren't sure where to go in. Surprise! It was a NC country experience. We had wonderfully prepared food. The musical group was terrificic! We danced Wisconsin style which turned a lot of heads! Sim's is... More

Love the food and casual atmosphere! Music was ok. The only negative was the children running around and up and down the bleachers, very loud!! Be prepared to pay extra for your drinks and a dessert.

The food is good, but the full experience is what keeps us going back. Live bluegrass music, line dancing and clogging, and all you can eat barbecue down an old dirt road. If you can resist the urge to turn around while yelling "paddle faster" you won't regret it. 😝 This place is one of a kind. Picnic style seating.... More

While you have to take several back roads to get to this gem, it is worth it for the entertainment. While it opens at 5, the fun doesn't start until 7. A super place for a large group of friends or family. Buffet style only. You pay at the door for food, then later for drinks and even later, separately... More

The food (all you can eat!); the setting; the family; the music and dancing - it all adds up to a fabulous place to spend a Friday or Saturday evening (the only nights they are open). Just a great, great time for the whole family!

BBQ has little to no flavor. I prefer smoked BBQ, and this is far from smoked. The atmosphere is great however. They usually have a love band and dancing.

Stopped in for dinner with my dad, this place is a drive out there but worth it. Looks like a huge country cabin. Cash only all you can eat BBQ for $12 ish per person and its tasty. An interesting experience with great food.

We have been visiting Sims for many years for family birthdays and just a good evening out Located in the country, its a no frills site but unique to say the least. You pay as you enter, and get the food in a buffet line. I've read some reviews not liking the food but I've never had bad, its always... More
