Virgil's Real BBQ - Las Vegas
Virgil’s Real BBQ has been acclaimed as one of America’s top 10 BBQ restaurants by leading food critics. Established 1994 in NYC’s Times Square, Virgil’s 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; Texas Brisket; Carolina pulled pork.
Our meats are smoked at low temperatures over indirect heat for up to ten hours with a unique mix of hickory, fruit woods in order to impart the most flavor to keep the meat from drying out. To complement the main menu of BBQ specialties, we also offer a generous selection of traditional sides like barbecue beans, coleslaw; cheese grit; Southern-style desserts like banana pudding, & pies.

This is my 2nd time here & I enjoy the food each time.
The famous brisket was mostly fat and the chicken was tasteless. Best part was the people watching.
Our food was not the best this time. The waiter never came back
Vegas! Great location and central to other activities.
Below average bbq. - cold brisket
Attentive, friendly staff. Vegan burger - in house made - was excellent.
It was okay. You pay for the location, not the food.
Food and drink just wasn’t up to par. Service was good.
I will definitely be going back. Food was great! Staff were friendly and very helpful.
Great smoked chicken wings and pork ribs. Mac & cheese and baked beans are a must side. Be prepared to be overstuffed
Food was outstanding as always.
Food was great and we had plenty. Wait staff was friendly and attentive. We will be eating here again.
Its was a good meal for 2. Paid 60 and got to tray different kind of bbq meats. It was worth it.
Great location if sitting outside to people watch. We had a large group so it was great being able to sit in the same area and while not all at the same table, close enough to be able to still move around and be a part of everything going on. Food and drinks were very good. Service was great!
Our host was amazing. He clearly knew the menu and was able to assist us with ordering. We enjoyed the interaction and the atmosphere. The drinks were AMAZING and the food was good. My only ding would be the stools. We sat outside and the stools weren't very comfortable. Regardless, I would recommend Virgil's Real BBQ if you are in Las Vegas.
Best BBQ in Vegas! We definitely left full! Great atmosphere and location. Staff was great. Very accommodating with tweaking our reservation so we were still able to do the gondola ride and then make it out there. Sitting outside was great. Nothing bad to say other than that they have an old menu posted and we were excited about the hush puppies that are no longer on the menu. Will definitely be back next time we are out there!
Basic food. Not worth the price. Nothing special.
Everything went smooth from the check in to seating. Our waitress Rosa was outstanding, fast and attentive. Only little problem was the bill at the end but she corrected it fast with no problem. Overall great experience!
The Wings wasn’t that good to me in my opinion. Drink was salty as well. Nice overall spot but just not my preference.
Virgils BBQ was delicious. Our server was very attentive. She made sure we had everything we requested in a timely manner. We had two tables and she was on top of it. We had a great time celebrating my friend’s 50th birthday.
Great place, even better bbq. Wings weren't our jam and the nachos were lacking meat. Next time will stick to bbq sandwich.
Great food and drinks.
This place was nice the food was awesome full of good flavors and portions were good we will be back!
Really good food, super amazing service
Great food, nice people, great atmosphere
Portions were so small, we had to get another meal after we paid our bill.
And no hushpuppies anymore? We won't be returning.
A group was totally too loud and out of hand and management did nothing to curtail their noise so that other diners could hear their own conversations. The food was good, but unfortunately we will not return and will not recommend to anyone! Sorry Virgil’s! Management needs to have a backbone.
Food was marginally OK and the service was slow and terrible. The service was an attentive, had to ask for water and beverages four times each. Our second table ordered 20 minutes after us and got their food 20 minutes before us. Had to wait 15 minutes to get a check to pay
Great BBQ, great atmosphere, friendly staff, highly recommend.
Good experience. Service was pretty good given how busy they were. Would definitely go back for the food though!
Had better bbq at other restaurants. Very pricey for the bbq.
Server was excellent. Food is good, although overpriced. But it’s Vegas, everything is.
Food was just okay, but portions were large. Drinks were also very large and a good deal for the price but were not very good. Waitress was rude and service was slow.
Our server wasn’t very attentive and she didn’t check back too often and when she did, we had a list of things to ask for.
It was a great bbq place. Our server was attentive and wonderful. Food was good. Would definitely go back next time I’m in Vegas.
Great food, great atmosphere, just an over all wonderful experience. I recommend the loaded bloody Mary!
Service was okay. Food was TERRIBLE. My girlfriend and I both were disappointed. The food portions were small and tasted bland. But the ribs were the just awful. The ribs were bloody & rubbery. On top of all that, the food is hilariously expensive. Definitely won't be coming back.
Food was amazing! Enough to share. The service was amazing.
Food was kind of bland , got a text that our table was ready but still waited 15 minutes more.
Our second return to Virgil’s was so much better than our first time a couple years ago. The food was served hot fresh and plentiful. Our server Rhonda was fantastic in making suggestions on the baked beans, which were the best I’ve had in a while. A great happy hour menu and just a pleasant place to dine and watch the people walk up and down the street. We will definitely return!
