Billy Sims to Visit His Bentonville Restaurant

If you’re a fan of Billy Sims, former Detroit Lions running back and Heisman Trophy winner, you have a chance to meet him this weekend. Sims will host a Guest Appreciation Day from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on May 2 at Billy Sims BBQ in Bentonville. Founder of the restaurant, he will be there to meet guests and sign autographs and memorabilia.


The restaurant will also offer $2 pulled pork sandwiches to guests who stop by. Billy Sims BBQ’s extensive menu includes nine meats with 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 mustard based potato salad, freshly smoked corn, cole slaw, 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 restaurant is located at 3511 SE J St.
