Very good barbecue. I have tried about everything and have never been disappointed. The turkey is my favorite. But the ribs are very good as well.

Always friendly. Love the frito pie. Never really crowded when we come at night. Atmosphere is OK, makes more for a quick bite than a comfortable dining experience. Wish they had fries

Food and service was terrific. Had sliced brisket and smoked chicken. Brisket was lean and very tender. Chicken was perfectly smoked. Will return again.

Had a Groupon so thought we would give it a try. The pulled pork was delicious and the chicken was so tender. Love the spicy BBQ sauce. Will be coming back for sure. Glad we tried it.

Let me make it clear that Billy Sims is not bad barbecue - it's good, but it's just not great. Feeling a little peckish one day, I ordered a three-choice dinner which roughly equated to two small ribs, some turkey and pork, a side and a large drink - and for $20 I had some coin and room in my...

I love BBQ, but I am no expert on the topic. I've eaten at several Springfield BBQ restaurants, and hands down, my favorite is Billy Sims BBQ. His sliced brisket is the best I've ever had. When you go there, don't forget the BBQ beans. They are to die for. Expect to find lots of big chunks of meat in... More

The ribs and beans combo can top any chain smokehouse I have been too. Living this close to KC/Ct. Louis is something that should be considered as well regarding my previous statement.

This is an okay BBQ place. Its definitely fast food style BBQ but in a pinch it works. I enjoy the pulled pokrk sandwiches and the baked beans are surprisingly good. Its a bit pricey for what you get though
