I was seated next to the stage facing a wooden wall. My Moscow mule tasted disgusting I couldn’t even suck it down. The Mac & cheese and beans were good, but the chicken and brisket were pretty bland and dry. I did like the red towel they handed out to clean your hands with.

Our waitress gave us our drinks after that she walked passed us 7 times without speaking to us so we sat at our table for 10 min waiting for her to ask what we want to eat. So I asked another waiter if someone could help take care of us since it was our first time. He was super nice got our food quickly and checked up on us. Our first waitress knew what happened but never came up to apologize or anything. She actually complained to her manager of now not having any tables since we got help from someone else right in front of us. To which at that point other waitresses started telling customers has anyone approached them and other things so it made us feel like we did something wrong. Then after eating our food we noticed the entire time that our first waitress was looking at us a lot so then we felt guilty asking for help from someone else. It was an awkward experience and we know we will not be going back. The food wasn’t the best either. But our second waiter was super nice and we did like the set up of how the restaurant looked we love a casual place and it was that but just an odd experience. I don’t want to sound needy or a complicated customer cause honestly my bf and I are very easy going and chill. But that experience was a bad one for sure.

Our waiter was great, very attentive to us. The food was awesome. I love BBQ the taste of the grill, but hate when restaurants overdo the sauce. Virgil’s offered the sauce on the side and my ribs and chicken were dry rubbed. Delish. No sauce needed. The brisket is was the star. I definitely recommend it. It did come with a little sauce. But didn’t take away from the great smoky flavor. The sweet tea was perfect. I use lemon as well so it was just enough sweetness. My only complaint would be I did not care for the Mac n cheese, but I didn’t go there for the sides.

It was my husband’s birthday and although I stated it, the waitress did not acknowledge it or even yell him happy bday. They sat us as our reservations time came. The food was GREAT!!!! We ordered the “chicken wings” mind you, they are whole wings. The seasoning on that chicken was undesirably good. The Mac n Cheese was referred by the waitress but it was just “ok”. They brought us hush puppies instead of the onion rings and when they corrected our order, I wished I’d kept the hush puppies instead.

The waitress wasn’t as friendly or observant to our needs as we wished but thank God she wasn’t rude. Over all, the food was good, I’ll definitely revisit this place!!!

Made a reservation but still had to wait, was given excuses. Had to engage the manager to be seated. Waitress was too busy, had to continuously wait. Dirty plates remained on the table, she showed when it was time to pay though. Disappointed:(

Great BBQ on the Linq Promenade. Fun food and people watching. Decent TV setup for sports. Expect a noisy atmosphere but hey, it's Vegas. Convenient walking distance from Harrah's, Linq, Flamingo, Cromwell or Bally's. Would definitely eat here again...

The food here was SO good. SO GOOD. Did I say SO good? Loved it. Staff was friendly, noise level was good. Some energy, but I could have a conversation at my table. Food was pricey, but no more than other Vegas joints. I would recommend. It was SO good!

This was a great choice for a casual and tasty dinner. We ate in the outside patio are so it was quite loud but it was fun to people watch while you ate!

Our server Natalie was truly phenomenal. She checked in often and always made sure our drinks were topped off. She was incredibly kind and sweet and answered nearly all of our questions with a cheerful “absolutely!” She was truly a pleasure and we couldn’t thank her enough for our great experience at Virgil’s

Dry burger. Dry and over smoked chicken. Lint in the mac and cheese which they did fix. Brisket was ok nothing to write home about. Biscuits were dry and crunchy. I would not go back purely based on the food. Service was outstanding.

We weren’t super hungry. So we just got two drinks, the large nachos, two cornbread muffins. Best we’ve had in a long time. Great service, very clean, well plated, location was good just a little hidden. We stayed at flamingo so it was easy and close by. Highly recommend.

The hostess was less than enthusiastic about seating us, and just pointed to the table that we were to sit for dinner. The server however was fantastic. The food was also fantastic. Can’t wait to go back!
