Virgil’s Real BBQ has been acclaimed as one of America’s top 10 BBQ restaurants by leading food critics.

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.

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!

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.

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

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.

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.

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!

Great menu, lots of choices. Food was full of flavour, highly recommend. Perfect portion sizes, not too big. Service was friendly but our waiter did forget our requests a couple of times. Our food was warm enough to eat but not piping hot and it tasted so good it didn’t matter.

Good food but very pricey. Little to no wait but would not recommend or return for a future visit. Try hash house a go go for good quality food and respectable prices.

Delicious meal! We did the combo that had all of the options. Our favorites were the brisket and pulled pork. I wasn't a fan of the chicken, it was a bit dry. The BBQ sauce is amazing! It's Covid, so the wait was long, but if you have the time, it's well worth the wait!
