Billy Sims has your typical BBQ place menu. The food is great and so far I've had great service and quick food. The place is clean and employees are friendly.

We shared pulled pork, beef brisket and ribs...excellent! Trevor did great on chopping up beef brisket as,we prefer that versus sliced that they also can do. We also got pint of baked potato salad that was very tasty. Trevor and another were very nice, friendly and thanked our group for eating there. We are retired people and appreciate that these people at Billy Sims are respectful. Jesse, manager was not there tonight, also is excellent person that we normally see that treats ALL customers as VIPS and did great job training the employees that customers are king and queen! WELL DONE!

We often order both beef brisket and BBQ pork ribs as excellent. You can add various BBQ meats for a small surcharge (2 ribs, turkey, sausage, etc). BBQ Pork is very good too. My wife, normally does not eat ribs; really likes their ribs as so tender/tasty. The pork ribs have always been meaty and fall-off-the-bone tender and excellent except one time when they were "just" very good (folks, meats can vary in texture as I was raised on a farm and experienced such from farm-raised animals). I thought their BBQ sauces had many varieties and good, two varieties of potato salads were tasty and different, and cole slaw was good. The management does a great job as the servers practiced good cleanliness, were helpful on good descriptions of sides, very friendly and thankful to the customers. Jesse, manager working tonight, thanked me for coming for the take-out order and put in several extra single serving portions of BBQ sauce as I wanted to make sure we had enough sauce. Well Done!

The meats are pre made and were too dry for my taste. Potato salad was ok, so was the slaw. Maybe ok for a quick bite, but not a place to savor meat.

Was happy to see that this former Heisman trophy winner has brought his BBQ to CR. The food is very good and the sides are solid.The only draw back like most BBQ places the price of the meal is a lot more than a standard fair place.It's not cheap but its good BBQ.
