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 NYC’s Times Square, Virgil’s 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; 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.

Very good barbecue, great friendly service.
Took a long time to be seated even though we had a reservation
The food was great. I hat the bbq dinner the pig out and I shared with my husband. The chairs were not comfortable at all. The banana pudding was sour and tangy I did not care for it.
Had a great time here!! Dominique was great! Lots of food for the price. Great location.
Being from Tx we expect a lot from bbq its ok but not all that.
The food is just mediocre. The sides Mac and cheese was dry and inedible and Cole slaw looked like it was brought from a grocery store. The bbq were just okay nothing special. The brisket was dry. The alcoholic drinks were weak. Definitely wouldn’t return.
Great food and great environment. Definitely give them a try!
Had a great time there, the food and drinks were excellent, will definitely go again
Awesome service and amazing food!
Not the best bbq in the world, but decent! The spareribs had a nice dry rub on them. Ask for bbq sauce on the side if you want to add sauce to your ribs. The Mac & cheese and collard greens were good, as was the jalapeno corn muffin. The portions are very large...bring a large appetite or ask for a doggie bag! They messed up my order...I ordered the grilled shrimp & ribs combo, but they bought me all ribs instead. The ribs looked so good that I didn't complain or send my order back. I just ate the ribs and enjoyed! I would go back to Virgil's again the next time I'm in Vegas!
Excellent service and food. Portions kind of small for the price. Had the brisket with cole slaw and potato salad. Banana pudding for desert.
They never fail with the best tasting bbq and sides
Great service. Great food. A little spendy but average cost for Las Vegas Strip food.
Waitress was very friendly and helpful. Food was amazing.
We thoroughly enjoyed our meals. Portions were very generous and they were very tasty. We recommend the Pulled Pork. Service was perfect. She refilled our drinks and came back to make sure everything was good. Make sure to make reservations as it gets busy in the evenings
Sat outside under a shady umbrella. Misters also helped keep us cool. Ordered the platter for one (brisket, pulled pork, potato salad, mac&cheese) and the chili to share: best BBQ we’ve EVER HAD. Get the chili, you won’t be disappointed! DELICIOUS. Our server, Rhonda, was A+ and kept our ice waters full constantly. We will go out of our way to dine here again!
The pulled pork here was outstanding, and the cornbread that came with it was just as good. I chose the Mac and cheese and a large buttermilk biscuit for my sides, and I was very glad I did! The meal was delicious and filled me up for the day. It was a great value for the price. Highly recommended!
Pleasant server. Majority of food very good especially the pulled pork and the macaroni and cheese.
Maybe because we’re in Vegas and people are mostly intoxicated but we selected this place based on reviews and ummmm not very impressive. Service was great but food was not very good.. it looked great though.
Sad to say it offers the only brisket that is better than my own home cooked recipe.
Brisket was delicious and good portions. Fast service with excellent customer service from our waiter
The ribs are delicious. The lemonade drink was good but would have been better blended.
Great place to go for ribs. Portions are huge. Consider sharing. You won’t go hungry!
Awesome food and service. Would recommend to friends and revisit.
Our waitress was absolutely amazing! The food was delicious, and the energy was fun! Overall would love to go back!
Our server was fantastic and the food was excellent.
Some of the worst food and service we’ve ever had. Would not recommend.
This place was hard to find after parking in the garage at The Linq. Arrived 10 minutes late due to this, and they cancelled our Open Table reservation. Still took us, thankfully, and sat us outside. Drinks were slow to come.
Three of us- one ordered Nachos, was promised cheese would be shredded, not melted. It came with cheese melted, and the sauce tasted nasty. Another ordered brisket and pulled pork. I ordered pulled pork. We had no utensils, so asked as we were being served. Five minutes later, we asked another server, who said sure, but nothing happened. Then complained to the hostess, who found our original server. After 10 minutes of sitting with our food getting cold, they brought utensils. The brisket was good, pulled pork was blah. The portions were small for the $25 plus price.
“Top 10 BBQ joints in the country”? Not even close! Mediocre taste, over-priced, horrible service, small portions, and we were ignored. Don’t bother to visit this place- it is beyond bad!!
The bartender up and beyond her hospitality services. They wasn't preparing steaks at lunch but she asked the kitchen could they prepare one for me. The steak came out a perfect medium rare, just like I like it. A warm red center, juicy, tender, and very flavorful. Best birthday dinner in Vegas!!!
We ate here with friends for our last night in Vegas and it was perfect. We sat outside to enjoy the weather and people watch. It was a little bit windy but the service was great and the food was exceptional. We would definitely recommend to anyone who loves BBQ.
The food was great, came out super quick, we were seated immediately with our reservation. The staff seemed a little lost in their own restaurant, it wasn’t a bad thing, just a little strange. Our waitress was almost too quiet and didn’t say anything when she walked up to our table, it was awkward. Nonetheless, we ordered the pigout for two with the mac and cheese and potato salad, SO much food and tasted great.
We had a large party and they did an excellent job of taking care of us and the BBQ was delicious!!
Food is expensive but you get a ton and it’s delicious. Waiter was awesome - funny and attentive. Definitely worth a visit every time we’re in town.
It was my dads birthday so we flew in from MI to take him out. We enjoyed every second of it the food and drinks were great. So great my mom made another reservation this week for her next set of out of town guest
Ordered a ribeye and it was the thinnest steak I’ve ever had.
Great restaurant, great food, great food, had awesome time.
Muy buena la comida y suficiente! Te atienden muy rápido pidan para compartir!
Great service and great food. We were a large group and they did great.

The food was very tasty! Good bbq flavor, I liked the ribs best.
