Virgil's Real BBQ - New York City
Virgil’s Real BBQ has been acclaimed as one of America’s top 10 BBQ restaurants by leading food critics. Established 1994 in the heart of NYC’s Times Square, Virgil’s Real BBQ has become the popular destination for millions of tourist & locals.
Virgil’s Real BBQ 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 & chicken & Carolina pulled pork.
Our meats are smoked at a low temperature over indirect heat for up to ten hours with a unique mix of hickory, oak & 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 grits & Southern-style desserts like banana pudding & Key Lime pies.

Virgils was outstanding! Amazing service and food! Food was amazing quality and our service was brilliant!
The restaurant was quiet because Broadway was dark.
We had the best waiter Matt. We asked his recommendations & he was absolutely correct. Food was excellent!
Ask for Matt when you go there.
It’s always a pleasure to come in with my out of town buddies and get the best wings around.
And we had a server that was a true whisky enthusiast that turned us on to some great new drinks
This place is just fun. It’s not pretentious, the food and drinks are great, and the location if you’re looking for a bite to eat before a show is perfect. Hands down a good old time in times square
Had a great evening out with my niece.💜
It was great!
Awesome service, friendly waiters, and great food!
Great food with great service from Chase!
Nice atmosphere-very relaxing?
The server was inattentive. We had to ask for drinks 3 times. I’ve never returned a margarita before and could not drink this one. Don’t recommend ordering from the bar unless it’s wine.
St Louis ribs were great. Slaw just ok. Baked beans good. Cornbread muffin was overdone.
Would not go back.
Very tasty bbq food
Favorite place for wings!! They are fall off the bone, finger- lickin' great.
BBQ is not my favorite. My guests liked it.
Being a sister restaurant of Carmine’s, we expected to have a great last meal in NYC at Virgil’s. Unfortunately, our waitress was inattentive and had a nasty attitude. Our appetizer was incorrect when it came out and took over 30 minutes to be corrected. The brisket was extremely fatty, the beans were barely room temperature and the mac and cheese tasted like a custom seasoned Velveeta. We were so excited to eat here as it was right across the street from our hotel and we were hoping to get a great meal before catching our flight home, but were extremely disappointed in the end.
The food us always wonderful. But $7+ for two biscuits is not reasonable. The second floor bounces when people walk so it's not always comfortable
Great Times Square location. Good food and service.
If you like bbq, great place. Also great for big parties and near theater Service was AMAZING!
Fast service, a must for a pre-theatre dinner. Pricey soft drinks, but free refills. We had the pig out combo for 2, which included 3 large ribs with a nice rub, 1/2 chicken, pulled pork, and brisket. Portion size was good. Tasty corn bread included. Mashed potatoes were watery. baked beans had too much sauce and not enough beans, but was tasty. All things considered, a reasonably priced decent place to eat before a show.
