Virgil's Real BBQ - New York City
You can’t go wrong here if you’re in the mood for bbq. Anytime we are in the city we visit Virgil’s. Love the hush puppies and biscuits w gravy!
1st time eating @ Virgil’s. Food was excellent. Good drinks and service. Reasonably priced.
Great place for delicious barbecue! Had the half dry rub barbecue chicken with a side of potato salad and collard greens. It comes with yummy cornbread too. The food was totally awesome! Tried the regular and frozen margaritas. Both were excellent although I favor the frozen slushy one a bit more. Any barbecue place that gives you a terry cloth towel instead of a paper napkin and follows up at the end with a hot towel to clean up with afterwards gets an A+ in my book. I will definitely return to this place!
Lovely big portions, tasty food and good service, we would come back.
I have a secret.I’m from Texas and Virgil’s is my favorite bbq restaurant in the country.It’s a family style setting and a comfy cozy atmosphere to help you escape from the Times Square hustle and bustle.No item comes up short and the quality is consistent.Thanks for being my home away from home for the last 10 years Virgil’s.
The service and wings were the best. Nice place to go and hang out and have fun!
Great food and service
Maryland Crab cake was the best I ever had
Great location for theater
Back again, still great. Amazing BBQ for the center of NYC
Always enjoy a stop at Virgils when in Times Square area. The best!!!
The server failed to mention that the blacken salmon had a pineapple salsa and I'm allergic to pineapple. I had to send the salmon back. When I finally got a new piece it was over cooked.
If you want to experience American dining in New York then this is where you should go. Portions are excellent, the chicken is lovely
Great food at a great price. You do get a lot of food too. The service was just slow and the waiter forgot to put my appetizer in.
Eaten there many times. Ordered burger with swiss, and came without swiss. Sent back and returned with slice not melted. Sent back and had to wait till new burger was made. Appreciated both staff response and price deducted from bill but friend and I ate at different times. Surprised cause not complicated order.
Overall it was a good experience. They accommodated my family and I Well. The service was ok. I really liked their regular margarita and watermelon margarita.
The service was excellent ..The food was delicious,
if you ever go must try the wings !! The wings are amazing !! The brisket of beef was also delicious !!!
Great place - grilled ship was delicious, brisket was a little dry- overall excellent evening
We were a large party with a reservation. Our tables were ready early. Food was great. Service was excellent. We had multiple servers checking on us during our entire visit.
Virgil's used to have the best BBQ in the city, but after an absence of 4 years our lunch failed to live up to prior expectations. The sides (onion rings, baked beans and cornbread) were good but the ribs were fatty and overcooked. Excellent service compensated for a first-time-ever disappointing meal. So I'd still recommend it, but maybe would steer clear of the Memphis Baby Backs. My wife's brisket sandwich was excellent.
Decent food, nothing wow but the taste was very good and portions were good too.
The flavor of the food was good, but my order was cool, and the place wasn't busy. Lastly, since the weather was raining and cool outside, I want some herbal mint, peppermint, or spearmint tea, but none was available. Therefore, I requested a cup of hot water.
The owners of Virgil's need to correct the aforementioned.
For NY BBQ, it's probably OK. If you really know your barbecue, it's just fair. Brisket was fatty, chicken was good but much too dry. Ribs were decent -- probably the best bet.
Tired looking pub. Started off with drinks and onion rings at the bar while waiting for table. Rings not particularly good. Started meal with chopped veggie salad which was quite good. Shared half rack of ribs and two sides. Ribs were fatty and not very tasty. Dry rub needs barbecue sauce. Sides of beans and cole slaw tasty. We both agreed we would not return.
The fried chicken was pretty good
GREAT everything - food, ambiance, and EXCELLENT server David who was both friendly as well as helpful.
Virgil's never disappoints
Unbedingt hingehen und leckeres BBQ In New York genießen
Our waiter was extremely rude and slow/not helpful. The food came out extremely fast -- like way too fast. Our drinks took longer than the food.
Overall experience was good wasn't enough food on the plates for the price I ordered the pig out for 2 and it was just enough for one especially the meat portions
Returned after first visiting in 2017....felt very let down. The service was just poor - had to ask 5 times for a drink, repeatedly missed....staff just didn’t seem bothered about anything. Food remained lovely but all spoilt by rubbish service and a cold and draughty restaurant 😢
Good all round experience, large portions, good drinks and service.
Good place for a tasty quick pre theater meal. Busy and noisy but was fun. The bourbon draft beer was a disappointment at $9.50 for a small glass.
Very good bordering on excellent. I am a big fan of the Dinosaur BBQ in Syracuse, NY and Virgil's is at least equal to that legendary establishment.
Ottima carne, servizio impeccabile
We really enjoyed our lunch and loved the fact that they didn't rush us out either!
Outstanding southern BBQ. Excellent service, friendly staff. A new favorite destination any time I head to NYC! Brisket is second to none in the northeast. The sampler platter is a must have for any BBQ enthusiast!
It was so good, fried pickles to ribs and chicken, then key lime pie yummy. Was a little noisy, but we are old so could just be our hearing LOL.
Always a good experience here. Yes, it is in Times Square, but, it is not just a tourist trap. The BBQ is actually really good!
Virgil's BBQ is excellent - if you love BBQ, then you have to try Virgil's.! Price and service was equally good!
The food was excellent as was our waiter! They were playing blues music and my family really had fun! It was an awesome experience!
Nice atmosphere but i remember bitter food in the past years
