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!

The food was horrible. For spend $100+ for two people I expected more. The ribs we're so very dry and the bbq beans and potatoes we're so bland. Service was mediocre.

Service was great. Our server took time to with the monstrous drink menu and helped us get started. Food was excellent and came in large portions. Venue was lively with country music to set the tone. Google provides terrible directions, it's a bit down the Linq Promenade, but was well worth the hide and seek required to find it.

Honestly dissatisfied. Runny, tasteless food. No service or check up. We had to ask 3 times for a drink refill. Overpriced. Will not be returning.

A little But to dark but eventually you adjust. Also you should
Have all sports on different TVs attracts different kinds of customers , especially if it’s nba playoffs an obviously Stanley cup . Food was excellent service was good! I’ll visit whenever I’m back in Vegas.

No point in making a reservation. We still had to wait for people who were there ahead of time. We were told the next table was ours, and they would come to get us. we stepped outside to wait/social distance and watched three sets of people walk in and get seated.

This felt much more like a Bubba Gumps, or other touristy restaurant than a quality bbq place to me, personally.

Our waitress Elena was really helpful with figuring out with combo would be best and she was very attentive to our table and even told my 12 year old daughter good job with eating her burger! Kids sometimes don’t finish things so that was extra nice she said that to her. She’s a keeper!

Food was decent, but the price was way too high for the portion size. Usually at a legit bbq place, the portions are much larger.
