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

Local styles including Memphis pork ribs; Texas Brisket; Carolina pulled pork.

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.

The food was not good at all. The French fries was the best thing we had. They are overpriced and bbq was to hard to get off the bone. 2 of the 4 people in my party got sick . This is not Memphis style anything....

My wife and I go to Las Vegas once a year. We always eat at Virgils at least once a trip. Carmines is also a place we eat at least once a trip. Great food at both places!

Food is terrible! We got there soon as they opened and it was nothing but leftovers from yesterday or days before. Food came out cold and loaded with sauce. Save your money don't go to this BBQ place. This is a tourist trap!

We discovered this place the last time we visited Las Vegas and fell in love with the excellent service and friendly atmosphere. Great spot for taking in a Raiders game on Sundays!

The reservation was a joke! Still waited 30minutes and then they offered us the bar. Food was ok, not worth the price. The highlight was our server and the coffee she brought.

We had outdoor seating New Year’s Eve, it was a little chilly but the outdoor heaters helped. Reservation availability is limited everywhere with the seating limitations and we were happy to get a spot for a party of 10. The food absolutely made up for the chilly weather. Absolutely amazing no complaints from anyone in our party! Would definitely come back again!!

Probably the best meal we’ve had in Las Vegas! We’ve been here for almost a week and tried a lot of places to eat. Virgil’s was by far the best. My husband had the ribs and I had the chicken. My chicken was moist not dried out like I’m used to getting. From what I could tell the ribs were excellent too. All that was left on his plate were bones. I loved the Mac and cheese for a side. The service was wonderful! I wish I could remember his name, but my husband wrote a note to his manager on the back of the receipt letting him know how pleased we were. We will definitely include a meal at Virgil’s the next time we come to Vegas!

This was our first time here. Everything was amazing!! Our waitress was outstanding! I wish I could have grabbed her name but she said she was our mom for the night because we could have been her kids because of our age haha. But the food was great! I highly recommend the baked beans and Mac n cheese soooo good!

The most rude moments I’ve ever encountered in Las Vegas. I sat down at my table 15 mins after my reservation time. My reservation time was 745pm. I had to wait on my party. My party did not show up until about 8pm. Once my party sat, the woman with blonde curly hair pulled in a ponytail was so condescending. She decided to tell us that we only had 90 mins to eat from time the reservation was placed for due to other reservations. She then stated at 9pm we have to leave. I expressed to her, though my party showed up 45 mins late, I still didn’t get seated until 745pm, hoping she’d say “oh you can stay until 915”. But no, she continuously insisted in such a demeaning way that we had to leave at 9pm. I decided to not retaliate in the moment because it was a business meeting that I was holding. She was completely embarrassing and solidly rude from her. She stated she would come back around 9pm to let us know if we could stay longer. Once 9PM came around, there were 7 open tables and no one coming in. And guess what? She never came back to state whether we could stay or not lol. She could’ve at least kept her word. Because now the perception is, you DO NOT have reservations and you wanted to pick on us. I doubt 7 whole tables didn’t show up for reservations. Needless to say we left around 910pm. Never will I recommend this place. It was uncalled for though the food is great, the service was embarrassing to me in front of my colleagues which created a terrible experience.

Great food, great service. It’s a bit overpriced, but so is everywhere else in that area of Vegas.

We had The Pig-out, which is a combo platter for two people consisting of Bbq chicken, ribs, pulled pork and brisket and it was amazing. I can’t recommend it enough!

The service was great. The food was just ok. Ordered 2 burgers and 1 was very burnt and had to send it back. The brisket melt sandwich was 80% fat
