So disappointed in this BBQ. We had the Pig Out platter. The chicken was so dry, it was inedible. It basically turned to powder in your mouth. The ribs and brisket were mediocre, but the pulled pork was really good. Drinks and sides were good as well. But when 3 out of 4 meats at a BBQ are sub par, it ruins everything. For the price, the food should be significantly better.

Excellent pulled pork and sides. BBQ sauce was flavorful without being overwhelming.
Mac & Cheese was solid, if not great. Fries were perfect and tasty. Service was quick and attentive. Overall it was excellent.

DO NOT get the nachos or nacho fries. They were DRENCHED in BBQ sauce so much that it made my tongue feel raw. It too away from the taste of the meat, it was like eating a bottle of sauce. Service was good, and maybe I wasnt hungry enough and ordered the wrong thing but I wasted my money eating here, since I couldnt eat what I ordered and it was not offered to do anything about it.

We had a very good meal which included a brisket sandwich burger sides of mashed potatoes and gravy and fries. All in all it was very enjoyable the only thing that we didn’t like which is not the restaurants fault is our family had to be divided into two tables of 3. We have young kids so this was a bit of a hassle but that is politicians decidingHow restaurants should run their business

We ate at Virgil's after making an online reservation. The hostess was nice and cheery as she showed us to our seats. We were greeted by our waiter Marcus and he was a very nice guy and had a good sense of humor as we chatted and joked with him. He took our drink orders and answered our questions on menu items.

We ordered and we waited for our dinner to show up. We ordered different items and all of them were amazing. From the baby back ribs to the brisket and everything in between was tasty. The optional hot or mile BBQ sauce was a good touch for even more flavor. Needless to say, Marcus was there for the entire meal, checking in and making sure we had a great dining experience. Next time we visit, Virgil's will be on out To-Do List!

I wasn’t super pleased with the food. Very dry. Tasted like it was out for awhile under a hot light before it was served to us. The staff was really nice but overall value for food was poor.

This is a good change of pace restaurant for the Vegas strip. It’s definitely a casual and comfortable dining experience. I ordered the brisket sandwich and was definitely disappointed with hit. It was very fatty even when ordered as lean. However, the manager was very attentive to replace it with a chicken bbq sandwich which was very good. Mac and cheese and baked beans were tremendous! I’d certainly try this place again. I’ll just avoid the brisket altogether.

This was my first time visiting Las Vegas and also having Virgil. I decided to go here for my birthday at the last minute I was able to reserve the time I wanted and I was seated as soon as I reached. The food was amazing I had the dry rub ribs greens and Mac. It was so delicious. Oh abs don’t forget the strawberry margarita. Amazing food, drinks and service.

The pulled pork was dry and presented on a piece of bread . Horrible presentation . we could have used more sauce and been presented differently .bringing the pulled pork out on a regular piece of sandwich bread was not a good look. also my chicken sandwich was nothing special you can get the same quality at Wendy’s . my french fries were stale as well.
