HIGHLIGHTS OF VIRGIL’S REAL BBQ:
Virgil’s Real Barbeque has been acclaimed as one of America’s top 10 BBQ restaurants by leading food critics. Established 1994 in the heart of NYC’s Times Square, Virgil’s Real Barbecue has become the popular destination for millions of tourist and locals.
Virgil’s Real BBQ was developed after extensive research, including a nationwide road trip in search of the best that BBQ has to offer. Local styles including Memphis pork ribs and chicken and Carolina pulled pork.
Virgil’s meats are smoked at a low temperature over indirect heat for up to ten hours with a unique mix of hickory, oak and fruit woods in order to impart the most flavor and to keep the meat from drying out. To complement the main menu of BBQ specialties, Virgil’s also offers a generous selection of traditional sides like barbecue beans, coleslaw and cheese grits and Southern-style desserts like banana pudding and Key Lime and sweet potato pies.

This was my second visit to Virgil’s and I cannot get over how amazing they are. Their BBQ is superior to all others and they deserve so much more recognition for it. I had the Virgil’s BBQ salad, which was perfect and on point for a lighter dinner. Their service is great too, and everyone I interacted with was super friendly and had a great vibe. Highly, highly recommended! If you like BBQ, it would be a huge mistake to not visit here at least once when visiting Las Vegas! 🥰

Food was good but a bit on the expensive side. They do offer a local’s discount which was a nice surprise. Really liked the atmosphere. Would definitely return.

Service was slow and mediocre at best. Nice enough server but not very knowledgeable. Ordered barbecue brisket sandwich. At least half of the meat was fat. Unable to eat

We were able to book online from Australia before we left which was super convenient. The food is amazing and value for money. You also get plenty on your plate. The wait staff are super friendly and helpful. As we had a Group of 13 we were given a large table upstairs away from the the normal hustle and bustle of a restaurant which meant we could talk and had a great time. He margaritas are pretty good and come in a large mug which several of our guests tried. Definitely will eat there again and have done so each trip to Vegas

Food and service were great. Noise level was ridiculous. Almost impossible to hold a conversation while sitting inside. Absolutely no reason to have the sound on for the football game showing on the giant television AND have music blaring. Have no plans to ever return to Las Vegas. If I do though, I may get food from there to go but very unlikely to stay and eat. Seriously, is the manager and wait staff deaf? If not now they will be shortly. If I worked there I would get OSHA involved due to the unsafe work conditions due to the noise level.

Virgil’s margarita is 25 Oz of sugar water. Zero flavor. No liquor.
Go there for the great food. Not margaritas. Pats toe salad greasy. Not as good as it could be. All other food is great.

We enjoyed dinner and music st Virgil's. The Kansas City ribs , hush puppies, and cornbread were great! The live band "Sequence " was very good.
Drinks are very good and prices are very reasonable for Vegas. We had 8 people est and drink for under $400- tip included.
We will definitely go back next time.
Kelsey was our server. She was friendly, fun and efficient.

The food was very good. The pulled pork was tender and juicy and the potato salad was delicious also. The coleslaw had a nice consistency and not overly creamy with a vinegary flavor which I also liked. The live music was also good. Nice place overall.

This was our first visit, and it was a good meal. We shared the hush puppies, which we enjoyed but they aren’t like what we’re used to. This were about the consistency of funnel cake fragments. Good taste, though.

The brisket was thinly sliced, unlike what you often get in Texas. The trash ribs were good, falling off the bone. The sauce has a good taste and is pretty mild.
