Good Food and reasonable prices

In a town with not a lot of great food options, Bill Sims was a welcome meal. The restaurant was clean and modern. The workers were very helpful and friendly. The BBQ is good for this small town, and portions are decent. I had the Schooner salad which was a generous portion size. I also tried my... read more

Have eaten there several times trying different meals, but haven't found anything to go "wow" about. It's average food, service and atmosphere for the Altus area.

No really, Billy IS the only choice. At least the only one we could find after a thorough search of TripAdvisor. Saturday evening (630p). Only one table of bone chewers when we got there, but by the time we left an hour later, 5 other tables were hosting parties of carnivores, with two more families in line. Wifey wisely chose...

This is a good place to catch lunch. The staff is always friendly. It's quick and easy to get in and out. Not to expensive. Good lunch spot. There isn't much atmosphere so it doesn't seem to be a super appealing place for dinner.

We decided to try Billy Simm's for lunch. They have several locations around Oklahoma. Service was prompt. My wife had the brisket sandwich, and I went with the two meat dinner. The sandwich was adequate and filling. I chose the brisket and two ribs, with BBQ beans and potato salad. Though the portions looked small, it turned out to be... More

Went here with family for dinner. The food is ready as soon as you order & pay. Prices are good, the food is great! Ordered 1/2 rack rib dinner. The sides are pretty good too! Staff very friendly. Won't leave hungry!

Wanted to taste some Oklahoma BBQ and Billy Sims did the trick. Food was hot and tasty. Beef brisket and pulled pork were spot on. Would go back again.
