Legendary football player and Billy Sims BBQ co-founder Billy Sims will visit the new Ada, Oklahoma, restaurant on September 23 from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m.  Billy will be available to sign autographs and meet guests. The first 25 guests to stop by will receive gift bags with restaurant swag.

Billy Sims BBQ opened in Ada, Oklahoma, on September 7 at 1510 Hoppe Blvd. in South Ridge Shopping Center. Prior to opening, the restaurant location underwent a complete renovation.

Billy Sims BBQ’s extensive menu includes nine meats, including favorites such as ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, chicken, turkey and even Bologna!  All meats are smoked daily over Pecan wood in the restaurants. Completing the lineup are traditional sides with a twist, such as baked potato salad and a mustard-based potato salad, freshly smoked corn, coleslaw, baked beans with pulled pork, green beans with bacon, and entrée size salads with fresh vegetables. All Billy Sims BBQ restaurants showcase the smoker in the front of the restaurant with a strategically placed cutting station, which shows guests that meats are pulled right off the smoker and freshly sliced prior to serving.

The Ada, Oklahoma, restaurant is owned by franchisee Justin Shaw. This is Justin’s second restaurant.  He opened the Billy Sims BBQ Ardmore, Oklahoma, in 2014.

“We found a great location and worked hard to renovate it into a welcoming spot for Ada friends and families to enjoy the best barbecue,” says Justin Shaw, franchisee Billy Sims BBQ.  “Our team looks forward to serving our new guests and introducing the community to our menu.”

Founded by University of Oklahoma running back and 1978 Heisman Trophy winner Billy Sims and co-founder and CEO 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, franchising in 2009, and diners now enjoy over 50 locations across six states.
