BBQ...Billy Sims Style...

Tonight we decided to try a new to us eating establishment here in Norman. After driving around town thinking of all the places we have already patronized, we decided to go to Billy Sims BBQ. Anyone out there who knows college football knows of Billy Sims. College football's 1978 Heisman Trophy winner for the University of Oklahoma and NFL Running Back for the Detroit Lions.

Billy Sims BBQ has been in business for 6 years and almost a year in Norman, OK. We had passed by it lots of times when we would go to Hastings Book Store, but would never stop. We kept saying that we needed to try it. Tonight we gave it a try. Little did we know what we were missing.

Dave ordered the Bevo Plate sliced brisket dinner and I had the Pulled Razorback pork dinner. We got 2 sides each, Texas toast and a dill pickle spear. You get to see them dish up your food. Boy did it look good. There was little to no fat on the pulled pork and very little fat on the brisket. It was melt in the mouth meat. I would say they use a dry rub on their meat. The BBQ sauce was wonderful, we like a sweet sauce and theirs was very good. There was so much on our plates that after I had eaten part of my dinner I decided to take a picture with my phone's camera. We brought home enough food for lunch tomorrow. Believe me when I say, I was stuffed! Everything was so good.

There are 15 stores in Oklahoma, 2 in Missouri and one opening soon in Detroit. You can go to their website and find their other locations,see their menu and read all about how they got started.

As for the store in Norman, it is situated just off I-35 at the corner of West Main and 24th Avenue NW in the Normandy Creek Shopping Center on the East side of the property. There is plenty of parking for Motor homes, buses, 5th Wheels and anything smaller. If you're wanting to get off the road for a nice break from driving, I highly suggest Billy Sims BBQ. In my estimation it rates 5 stars. Come on in and sit a spell, you'll be glad you did.

Happy trails...
