I love Billy Sims (and the restaurant!). Everything I have had is really good! Really love the Mac and Cheese! It would be perfect if only they had fried okra!!

When we walked in the door we were greeted with the great smell of barbeque- really made us hungry. The employees were very nice and knew exactly what they were doing. The restaurant was very well run. The food was good. It's too bad it's hidden away in a strip center.

I have visited it more than once and will go again since I like bbq. I usually get the 2 meat platter (I forget the... More

We've eaten at several Billy Sims BBQ restaurants and have loved each time. All locations welcome you as you come in and are courteous throughout the ordering process. The food is always delicious! I look forward to every opportunity I get to eat there.

Had some of the best barbecue in Oklahoma here. They sell by the pound along with individual meals made you way. The only problem is they are located in a strip mall and may be hard to find. Worth the time of visiting them.

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.

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 daughter's chopped beef... More

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.
