September 07, 2017 // Franchising.com // TULSA, Okla. - The best ribs are coming to town! Billy Sims BBQ will open in Ada, Okla., on Thursday, September 7 at 1510 Hoppe Blvd. in South Ridge Shopping Center. The restaurant location underwent a complete renovation and will host the Chamber of Commerce on September 7 to celebrate the opening with a ribbon cutting ceremony.
Billy Sims BBQ’s extensive menu includes nine meats, including favorites such as ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, chicken, turkey and even bologna!

Completing the lineup are traditional sides with a twist, such as loaded 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 have an in-house smoker with a strategically placed cutting station, which shows guests that meats are freshly sliced prior to serving.
