Billy Sims BBQ will open its first Enid, Oklahoma, location on Friday, November 13 at 3518 W Owen K Garriott Road. A grand opening celebration, with an appearance by legendary football player for the Detroit Lions, Heisman Trophy winner and restaurant founder Billy Sims, is planned for Sunday, December 6 from 12 to 6 p.m.
Tulsa-based Billy Sims BBQ is the nation’s fastest growing fast-casual barbecue restaurant. The extensive menu includes nine meats, ranging from favorites such as ribs, brisket, pulled pork, chicken, to some unique offerings like turkey and bologna. All meats are smoked daily over pecan wood on-site at every restaurant, with careful attention to the proven recipe and process steps that have proven so popular among diners. Billy Sims BBQ completes the great dining experience with traditional sides—often with a twist—such as baked potatoes cooked in the smoker, potato salad, freshly smoked corn-on-the-cob, coleslaw, baked beans with brisket, green beans with bacon, and entrée-size salads with fresh vegetables.
“Oklahoma is our home base and we’ve had our eye on opening in Enid for a long time,” says Jeff Jackson, president of Billy Sims BBQ. “Oklahomans have come to love Billy Sims BBQ and we are excited to join the Enid community.”
Founded by University of Oklahoma running back and 1978 Heisman Trophy winner Billy Sims and cofounder Jeff Jackson, the popular Billy Sims BBQ brand has experienced phenomenal growth in recent years as BBQ enthusiasts embrace its special proprietary recipes and processes for preparing and smoking beef, pork, and more. The restaurant chain first began operation in 2004 and diners now enjoy 46 locations across five states.
