Virgil's - NYC
Online reservation?I made an online reservation to assure a table at this busy restaurant, and when we got there, it was not in the system. The staff was very nice and made sure we got a table. Otherwise that, Virgil's is a great place to relax!5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMConsistently Great!Been dining at Virgil's for 19 years since they opened in '94. My absolute favorite Bar-B-Que!! No trip to NYC is complete without at least one meal at Virgil's - lunch, dinner or Sunday brunch - always great food and great sevice. Convenient to Times Square area and theatre district. Also try sister-restaurant, Carmine's, for great Italian food, just a block away!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMyou don't have to have ribsyou don't have to have ribs or bbq to enjoy good food at virgils bbq i chose to have the broiled catfish it was so juicy so meaty so flavorful it was outstanding the portion was ginormous and it was just a nice change from the normal barbecue5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMI ordered the brisket andI ordered the brisket and thought it was on the salty side. The Mac n' cheese and hush puppies were delicious!5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMMy favorite restaurant in NYCI've gone so many times, it feels like home. I love the atmosphere, the music, the staff. It's my favorite food on the East coast. I especiallu love the Savannah Salad, Chickem Fried Steak, Hush Puppies, and Popcorn Shrimp (I love the sauce that comes with it.). My favorite side is the Memphis BBQ Beans. I love the cornbread. The napkins are little towels, which I like. At the end of your meal, you get a hot wash cloth to wash your face and hands. I really love it here.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent reasonably pricedExcellent reasonably priced and roomy BBQ joint! Really good tangy sauce, NorthCarolina style, is the secret.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat experienceThe food was amazing. The portions were big and were value for money.

Ps order the train wreck fries.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BBQ & A Nice Change of PaceThis was our second time at Virgil's and it just as good as our first visit.

Bring your appetite & don't miss the nachos!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMReally good food!We went to Virgil's on Saturday for a very casual dinner. Good food, huge portions, friendly attentive staff and reasonable prices. We would definitely go back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVIRGEL'S CLASSIC COMFORTWe had a 5pm reservation through open table. Our event ended early and we got to Virgel's early. They were able to seat us right away. The wait staff was very pleasant except one waiter kept coming over and over asking if everything is alright. We love Virgel's and finally I told him we had been here before. As usual the ribs, mac and cheese, biscuits were awesome. Great cold beer from a pretty good selection of brews. Can't wait to come back!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMVery goodVirgil's is terrific. Always good food and good service.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat BBQ in Times Square, NYCVery friendly at the acceptance desk, and very good food. It's great for dining out before and/or after hanging out in Times Square. We were on the 1st floor and had a great view from the big window while dining. We started with some gorgeous onion rings and followed up with texas beef and chicken; portions are above standard in terms of both quantity and quality. Their BBQ sauces are a plus, atmosphere is friendly, and service is super fast and accurate. Recommended.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMLuv the chicken wingsWhen in New York, we keep going back and back to Virgil's for their lip smacking chicken wings. The restaurant in close walking distance to most of the Broadway theatres and Times Square. Good southern cuisine eating with big portions.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGood food, service and atmosphere.Good food, service and atmosphere. Would go back again. A bit overpriced - especially the soft drinks and tea.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMfamily dinnerVirgil's was great. I had to change my reservation time, done without hassle. Taken to our table quickly, menu explained with satisfaction. Food for everyone in the family, even picky children. They absolutely loved the mac & cheese. Service was good, very attentive. Very large grouped arrived while we were there, which I thought would be a problem with noise and it was not. Recommended for meat eaters! Try the chicken and ribs platter!5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMLovelyDuring our visit to New York, we were looking for a restaurant with steak and grill food with a nice ambiance. We found it at Virgil's.

Awesome BBQ whenever I'm in New York City.I have been here several times,have tried different foods each time and was never let down.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMGood eats in Times SquareIt's hard to find a decent place near Times Square to eat. All to often, restaurants located at the Heart of the Universe are busy trying to maintain the flow of traffic which unfortunately translates into mediocre food, worse service, and a less than appealing environment, especially if you're a native. And then there's Virgil's - excellent service, great food, and a relaxed atmosphere (which is impressive considering how busy they were when we were there). Definitely make a reservation in advance, but you won't have to wait long if you do. Virgil's is far enough off the beaten path to avoid being overwhelmed by theatergoers. The staff is friendly and helpful and it's some of the better barbecue I've had in the city.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMKid PleaserPortions were generous and everything was delicious. Loved the ribs, pulled pork, cheese grits and collard greens! We had lunch around noon and didn't even eat dinner that night because no one was hungry. So glad we stopped at Virgil's before exploring the city. The kids loved it too. We saw the Harry Potter exhibit and when asked about their favorite part of the day, both boys said lunch at Virgil's.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ResturantGreat food. I would recommend to anyone. If your traveling with kids dont miss.4/1/2013 12:00:00 AMBrilliant find. Buzzy, greatBrilliant find. Buzzy, great staff, huge portions.

When we arrived at the restaurant the normal wiat was very long but we only had a short wiat for our table to be ready. The service was excellent and the food and portion sizes were excellent. If we are ever near to Virgils again we would definately go there again.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWhat.a find!Great food , friendly, attentive service. Some of the best BBQ chicken I've ever had. Use online reservations to avoid wait. Location makes it a great
spot for dinner before a show. So glad we found this gem!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThe BBQ is great! Our groupThe BBQ is great! Our group enjoyed everybite and loved the hush puppies with maple butter!
