I eat at Billy Sims BBQ every year at this time. Excellent food, friendly staff, inviting atmosphere. It's one of things I look for during my annual trip to Oklahoma City.

My family are big fans of Billy Sims barbecue. However our visit at the South Meridian store was not favorable. Purchased two pound meat for my elderly parents to have to eat on. Meat was tough, dry and non-flavorful. Won't visit this location again. But will visit other locations.

My wife and I ate there while spending a few days in OKC. The food and atmosphere were great. The personnel there wasn't outgoing at all.

Billy Sims Bar B Q is owned by the former Heistand trophy winner. Ribs fell off the rib. Brisket was tender and lean Baked beans are home made. Quick and easy dinner that was outstanding.

The restaurant is cafeteria style but has great food. The manager was very friendly and made the experience special.

I am giving a 5 star based on the effectiveness of the management. It's a clean well organised restaurant with a polite knowledgeable staff. The food is good and their sweet tea is top notch. It's im kind of a shady part of town but inside the other patrons are nice clean working folks.

Brisket was dry,super lean, and had no bark whatsoever. As I ordered I asked the guy if I could get top calf he starred at me confused and asked me what was that. I was then instantly worried. Potato salad was on point and Bbq sauce was great (thank god) as it was much needed.

I sure wish I could find a copy cat recipe for their chili!! This chili blew me away and I have been searching all over online for the recipe and cannot find it. They say the secret ingredient is unsweetened chili powder but it's MUCH more than that.

I travel to OKC often to teach and found a new Billy Sims BBQ short walking distance from my hotel on South Meridian. Both visits over a period of a few months have been consistently good. The staff had not changed and they are friendly and easy to discuss the options
