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 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.
Cocktails were expensive and light on liquor. Disappointed. BBQ was average. Would not return.
Meh. Had better bbq. Had worse. Good people watching if you sit outside. Friendly staff and good service.
The food was very tasty but the end result if you could say a ton of bloating for our entire party.
Typical Vegas BBQ food.
Lots of it, not very hot and the chicken was undercooked.
Ambiente tipico, cibo ottimo, servizio veloce e cortese. Consigliato
Great food and service! I will be returning! I’m coming back for seconds and thirds and fourths!
We had the 2 meat, 2 sides, $29 platter for me and my wife...the food that was delivered to the table was very spars...3 large, fatty Memphis pork spare ribs that were average at best...and the beef brisket that was cut in half (Only about 4” long) and only about 6 short, thin briskets sliced very thin...with a large tap beer the bill was around $50 with a modest tip and we walked away looking for a place to eat!
Fantastic food and great service.
Wanted good bbq and got good bbq.
We are locals and wanted to try this place. Brisket was inedible, and very fatty.
Food was very good! Went for date night and enjoyed the food and experience.
We booked a reservation that day for 11 people, and they got us in right away. Food was amazing, service was great and it was perfect for our team of work people.
Thank you for going above and beyond to fulfill my request from 1,000 miles away. Service was beyond attentive. Thank you.
Good. Food was marginal at best. Service was great, friendly, fun. Maybe return.
Not really for me. Food came within minutes of ordering - I guess it's all already pre-prepared - and I was probably in and out in 30 mins. Felt like fast food. Not sure how authentic it is, as I don't eat a lot of BBQ, but it wasn't anywhere near as good as I've had in Austin - very sweet and unsubtle. Service was uninspiring. I won't go back.
Great food every single time!!
Delicious and exceptional service!
Pleasant atmosphere .. quality staff, great food .. I will definitely come back when I am back in Vegas
Great service , good flavor, the ribs were a bit tough but very good.
Our waitress was awesome, very friendly and sweet. She knew the menu and had great recommendations.
This was my second visit to Virgil’s and I cannot get over how amazing they are. Their BBQ is superior to all others and they deserve so much more recognition for it. I had the Virgil’s BBQ salad, which was perfect and on point for a lighter dinner. Their service is great too, and everyone I interacted with was super friendly and had a great vibe. Highly, highly recommended! If you like BBQ, it would be a huge mistake to not visit here at least once when visiting Las Vegas! 🥰
Food was good but a bit on the expensive side. They do offer a local’s discount which was a nice surprise. Really liked the atmosphere. Would definitely return.
Service was slow and mediocre at best. Nice enough server but not very knowledgeable. Ordered barbecue brisket sandwich. At least half of the meat was fat. Unable to eat
We had breakfast this time. The biscuits & bacon was the best we ever had.
The service was great but the food was not. Not a-lot of food for a “combo” meal.
Everything was delicious small error on 1 out of 4 meals.
I loved it...We all loved it, The Thanksgiving turkey dinner was amazing! Great friendly staff that make you feel right at home!
Thanksgiving smoked turkey and all the fixins was out of this world .
Staff is amazing
We loved this place it was our second time there during our trip.
We will be back
Great food and awesome staff
Service was good food was good ribs were very good
Best date with my wife. The service was exceptional. The food made me rethink my choices on barbecue pork and made their's on top of my list.
In Las Vegas on a getaway. We are big fans of Virgils in NY. This one did not disappoint
The food and service was awesome!!! Just a little dark in the restaurant to read the menu
We were able to book online from Australia before we left which was super convenient. The food is amazing and value for money. You also get plenty on your plate. The wait staff are super friendly and helpful. As we had a Group of 13 we were given a large table upstairs away from the the normal hustle and bustle of a restaurant which meant we could talk and had a great time. He margaritas are pretty good and come in a large mug which several of our guests tried. Definitely will eat there again and have done so each trip to Vegas
Great experience. Zack was fantastic!!
Brisket and ribs are a must have. I’d fly back just for that food!!
Food was outstanding! Waiter was friendly and helpful.
Food and service were great. Noise level was ridiculous. Almost impossible to hold a conversation while sitting inside. Absolutely no reason to have the sound on for the football game showing on the giant television AND have music blaring. Have no plans to ever return to Las Vegas. If I do though, I may get food from there to go but very unlikely to stay and eat. Seriously, is the manager and wait staff deaf? If not now they will be shortly. If I worked there I would get OSHA involved due to the unsafe work conditions due to the noise level.
We loved how the waiters which off on our services. They were upbeat and professional.
Virgil’s margarita is 25 Oz of sugar water. Zero flavor. No liquor.
Go there for the great food. Not margaritas. Pats toe salad greasy. Not as good as it could be. All other food is great.
