    Had to get something different because the menu changed from the last time I was there. Still enjoyed the food though.

    Every dish was delicious especially the fried chicken, fried catfish, pulled pork, coleslaw, and biscuits and collards. The servers were attentive and food was served in a timely fashion. I would highly recommend.

    Virgil’s is one of my favorite spots when I want a taste of home (Texas). The service has always been great. We arrived an hour before our reservation and, luckily, they weren’t busy (probably because it was early on the 4th of July), so we were seated right away. I was also impressed that the host acknowledged my note on the reservation, showing that they do pay attention to those details. That made me happy. All in all, Virgil’s is a good, no-fuss, down-home Texas spot in the middle of NYC. If you’re from or love any of the BBQ states, this place is a must.
