Didn't like the sauce, and the dry meat needed sauce to help it. KFC cole slaw is better, didn't like any of the food. People were nice and friendly, but won't go back.

If you like good old southern bbq, you can't beat Billy's. Love the sides and always order brisket & ribs.

Excellent BBQ served up fresh and quickly. My adult son has traveled extensively throughout Texas and has become a bit of a BBQ snob. When I took him to Billy Sims, he raved on and on about the brisket. I had the ribs which were really tasty -- the kind you dream about until the next time you have them. Another time I had the sausage -- plenty of delicate smoky flavor without being greasy. I had a nice salad as a "super" side each time (a super side counts as two "normal" sides). The BBQ Ranch dressing was really good (and I don't even like French).
This Troy location is about the size of a sub shop with an ordering counter and booth seating along two walls. Billy Sims' football memorabilia adorns the walls and there's non-stop football action on the medium-sized video screen. Another time I brought home carry-out, and the food was still warm after a 20-minute trip home.

Have eaten at the Crooks Road location in Rochester Hills several times and have used the large carryout quantities for three family functions. Everyone loves it.Their BBQ sauce is outstanding. We have purchased that for home use as well. The barbecue pork sandwich and chicken sandwich are very tasty and come with a side. Staff is knowledgeable about their products and very friendly. You order at the counter.

The options for good BBQ in the area are quite limited. Don't expect white tablecloths though as this is a counter service restaurant that is mist often carry out. Meat is good and tender. My favorite sides arw the baked beans and green beans. A tad pricey but worth it if you have that taste for BBQ.
