Average barbecue, nothing special the only thing that I found to be different was that they added white chocolate chips to their banana pudding.

We stopped for lunch and got there early enough to beat the busy lunch crowd. I had the large sandwich plate with their homemade fries and okra and my wife had the small plate with Cole slaw and mac and cheese. My plate had a huge amount of the pulled pork, enough for two more sandwiches at home the following... More

Best BBQ this side of town. I really like the onion rings. The sweet potato casserole is a little too sweet though.

My friend had been talking up BBQ all day so on Saturday night I wanted to try SIms. Being in SC, I was afraid it would be the vinegar-based Carolina kind instead of the sweet KC style we love so much in Georgia. I didn't get to find out. We got caught up in a movie that didn't end until... More

We just moved here and had heard great things about Sims. Both of us had BBQ pork sandwiches with coleslaw on them. Coleslaw was very good. Not really the best BBQ we have had and it was a little dry. Our sides of baked beans and fried okra were very good. Will probably go back and try other menu items.

Been wanting time try out Sims for a few months but they have very odd hours so they were never open when went by. I had a brisket sandwich which was very tough and very fatty. My wife and kids had chopped chicken plates. The chicken chunks were huge, dry and didn't lend themselves to staying together on the sandwich... More
