Billy Simms BBQ in Southfield is one of the best BBQ joints in Michigan. It doesn't look like much from the outside, but the BBQ is where it's at! The brisket was smokey and tender! The baked potato salad was phenomenal and the green beans...More

I never dine in, but you can. The ribs aren't the best, but the pulled pork, chicken, and turkey sandwiches are great. Ribs seems Boiled, not Grilled.

What happened to the salad? The BBQ salad has done a disappearing act. Much less lettuce, tomatoes, cheese and croutons. In addition, the dressing seems to be diluted with vinegar and they give you just two half- filled dressing containers, unless you ask for more......More

We ate at this restaurant while visiting Detroit over the Thanksgiving holiday. We were pleasantly surprised at the quality of the food. The pulled pork was tender and good. The beef brisket was not as tender, but it was tasty. My son said the sweet...More

I have met a fellow retiree here about three times in the past year. It is a trifle expensive for what you get, but most of the food is good. You order as you move toward the cashier and the help fills your plate similar...More

This place has its good and bad points. The food is good, but the portions are terrible for the amount of money they charge. We ordered a slab of ribs with two sides and the portion of sides we were given was not enough for...More
