Billy Simms BBQ

For those of you born after 1980, Billy Simms played football for Oklahoma in college, and the Detroit Lions in the NFL.  He won the Heisman trophy in 1978 and played in 3 Pro Bowls before a knee injury ended his short NFL career.  He played in three Orange Bowls, beating arch-rival Nebraska in one, to the great disappointment of my neighbor in Wyckoff, NJ, who was a HUGE Nebraska football fan.

Today he and his partner have a restaurant chain of 44 stores, most in Oklahoma.  We ate at the one in Elk City.

I had the ribs, and they were excellent.  Nothing fancy, but really tasty.

The restaurant is decorated in football posters, 

and his bus was parked outside.

If you ever see a Billy Simms BBQ, go there.  I recommend it.
