Licking one's fingers after consuming barbecue is considered rude in some circles, though licking one's ears is universally deemed impressive. Practice impeccable tongue etiquette with today's Groupon: for $10, you get $20 worth of barbecue and more at Billy Sims Barbecue.
Named after the three-time NFL Pro Bowler, Billy Sims Barbecue whips up tasty slow-smoked pork, beef brisket, ribs, and more while allowing carnivorous connoisseurs to sample transcendently tender meats. Like a rechargeable cigar, all of the menu’s meats are smoked fresh daily. The protein-starved and the indecisive can feast on combo plate dinners ($9.99–$12.99), pairing brisket, pulled pork, bologna, hot links, Polish sausages, chicken, smoked turkey, or ribs with sides such as beans, cole slaw, smoked corn on the cob, and more. Meat mavens can also indulge in the Heisman, a dish of pulled pork or chopped brisket piled high and topped off with a slice of bologna and a hot link ($7.49). Sports memorabilia adorns the walls of the family-friendly establishment, reflecting the achievements of its namesake football legend and his uncanny ability to break down defensive formations with politely offered samples of tangy sauces.
Three Yelpers give Billy Sims an average of 3.5 stars:
- All of the meats were done perfectly, great smoked BBQ taste. The hot link wasn't the best - I like very spicy! - but the ribs were really really good, and so was the beef and pork. – Trent C.
