Food Friday: Billy Burger

Update: The Midwest City location has closed. The only location still open is in Tulsa.

There are legends in the history of OU football and one of the biggest from the 1970’s is Billy Sims. Now I grew up watching that man running all over teams who were playing OU and his Heisman is well deserved. In 2004 he opened Billy Sims Barbeque, that has been quite successful around the state. Well now he has moved into burgers and trust me, this is a great move.

I heard about the opening of the first Billy Burger in Midwest City in late 2020. After much convincing we finally got out there last spring and I’ve been back several times because it is just that good for a long drive. They have a very simple menu- a single burger, double burger, the 1978 BBQ bacon burger, and a chicken sandwich. Fries, either plain or loaded, and cheese curds as a side, with milkshakes and a slice of chocolate cake to go with your burger options.

I go big and get the 1978 BBQ bacon burger. It is huge with great taste and fresh veggies. The meat is seared to perfection with a wonderful flavor. Bacon is crisp and the barbeque sauce compliments everything. I really enjoy this burger. The sides are equally as good. The loaded fries are smothered in queso and bacon. The queso is really good and perfect for covering the fries. Then there are the cheese curds, deep fried with a side of ranch. Both sides are great. Another wonderful treat is the triple chocolate cake, so rich and decadent. The chocolate buttercream covers the moist cake. Just one slice is all you need. If you want you can get it mixed in with a milkshake as well. I tried it and the chunks of cake are so plentiful, almost like getting an extra slice of cake.

Right now there is only 1 location in the metro, there has been a new one opened in Tulsa just recently. I hope that more locations are coming because the food is great. The service has always been quick and helpful. The Midwest City location is always super clean. I give them 5 strips of bacon with a piece of chocolate cake.

Events for the last week of October

With Halloween coming and many fall festivals around, I thought I would make a list of some activities going on the next 2 weeks. Now it is best to check on the status of each activity around the state by going to their website, I found all of these with a simple Google search. There you can find hours and locations for all along with any admission or ticket information. Have fun and Happy Hauntings!!!
