Moms Eat Free at Billy Sims BBQ: Barbecue fans can celebrate their mom this Mother’s Day at Billy Sims BBQ! On Sunday, May 8th, all mothers will receive a free single meat sandwich, a side and a Billy Sims BBQ collector’s cup with drink for any guests who dine in the restaurant.

The sandwich options include a polish sausage, hot link, bologna, smoked chicken, smoked turkey, pulled pork or brisket. For sides, moms can choose from Billy BBQ beans, green beans, chips, baked potato salad, potato salad, mac n cheese, mini corn on the cob, coleslaw, Texas toast, or they can add-a-rib.

“There’s no better way to celebrate Mother’s Day than with a meal together as a family,” said Jeff Jackson, co-founder of Billy Sims BBQ. “We wanted to honor all moms for the important job they do by inviting them in for a meal on us.”
