Stopped by for lunch on the weekday. Been a few months since I had been to this location but I was not over surprised. Server was nice and attentive and the food came out fresh and hot. The flavor has changed slightly but it was not displeasing.

Everytime I have been there, the BBQ is awesome. I especially LOVE their BBQ sauce which is mustard based. I wish I had the recipe.

This place is an absolute hole in the wall and I wouldn't change a darn thing about it. Some of the best BBQ that I have ever had. My customer insisted that we go here for lunch and have the ribs. I was not disappointed. Great food, friendly staff... what more could you want?

Allan Sims was Famous for BarB Q in L.R. in the 1950's His mustard based sauce should be tried by all! He did custom BBQ in the early days, Fabulous is the first that comes to mind !

The closest location is 20+ miles away. I try to find a way to make at least a monthly pilgrimmage for the rib sandwich.

If you are ready to try a totally local spot in Little Rock, like BBQ then Sim's is a great spot to try. You can get lunch for around 10 bucks. BBQ is some of the best around.

Sides very good, especially the greens. Sauce is the best in Little Rock and rivals any anywhere. The meat itself is high quality. I love Sims! Portion generous.

For a mustard-based.......did I say that right......yes, mustard-based bar b que sandwich, you HAVE to come to Sims! Neighborhood is sketchy, but maybe you could UBER a car, or if Little Rock has FAVOR, have them bring it direct to your door! It is SO different and SO WORTH IT!

This location is no longer open. The restaurant is located on south Broadway. I was really excited looking at the reviews because I love BBQ so I thought I would try this place out. I paid around 10 dollars for a chopped pork sandwich with no side. I drank water so that was just the cost of the sandwich. It... More

I call it Memphis style BBQ, though I don't think the locals quite see it that way. Anyway, it is my favorite style, and Sims does it well!
