I visited sims during a recent trip through Little Rock after Sims was recommended by the hotel. I will say that I wasn't disappointed. The ribs were tender and the meat fell off the bone. The pulled pork was as good if not better than the ribs. I would definitely recommend this place if you are in Little Rock.

Husband and I just flew into Little Rock and asked where we could get some BBQ. We were told Sim's. It was not that bad. I know for sure we have had worse. Ribs were tender. Not a big mustard greens fan. I much rather collard greens. Corn bread was good. Up North it is normally sweet so nice to... More

Stopped by for lunch on the weekday. Been a few months since I had been to this location but I was not over surprised. Server was nice and attentive and the food came out fresh and hot. The flavor has changed slightly but it was not displeasing.

Excellent service. My order was fresh and it only took a few minutes to prepare. I posted a picture as this was all that was left from my chopped beef sandwich. If you haven't tried you don't know what you're missing!

I ran across Sims Bar-B-Que after Googling a restaurant in Little Rock that serves rib tips. Being raised outside of Chicago, I grew up eating rib tips and I hadn't found any place around that serves them. I have to admit the location is a bit sketchy (bars on the windows in the neighborhoods surrounding it) but I was determined... More

We have been long time devotees of Sims BBQ. It is delicious. I grew up with a mustard based BBQ sauce, so I really love this place. My favorite item is the BBQ Bologna sandwich. Trust me on this. Shaved thin, topped with sauce and slaw. Delicious!! You can get a nice cold one to go with your meal, drop... More

Passing through the Arkansas, we were coming up on Little Rock and I asked my wife to look up what was available to eat. She pulled up an article on 10 Things To Eat Before You Die, in Little Rock. Sims BBQ was one of them and we decided to go by as it was a very short distance off... More

I'm not a big fan of bbq, but my mom suggested we try this place out. I ordered the sausage sandwich and was surprised that it was just cut up pieces of sausage, swimming in sauce with two slices of white bread sitting on the sides. Not what I expected at all. Yeah, the service was good, but I would... More

Everytime I have been there, the BBQ is awesome. I especially LOVE their BBQ sauce which is mustard based. I wish I had the recipe.
