Billy Sims BBQ opened its first Denver area restaurant on July 13 at 2001 Sheridan Boulevard in Edgewater. Restaurant founder and legendary football player Billy Sims was on hand to meet guests and sign autographs. He also met with the Jefferson Junior/Senior High School football team and shared his story.

Billy Sims BBQ’s extensive menu includes nine meats, including 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 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.
