    Absolutely loved our entire experience. Ambience was just what my boyfriend and I were looking for our Sunday lunch (brunch I guess) - fun but laid back, country vibes. Service was excellent, genuinely friendly staff. Food was delicious and fairly priced. Definitely recommend the trash ribs, pulled pork sandwich, margarita slushee, train wreck fries

    The waitress was very nice. The cornbread bites appetizer was good. That mac and cheese … do not order. The nastiest mac I’ve ever tried to eat. Beef brisket was smoked well and mashed potatoes and gravy were decent. Not worth the price. Would not eat there again.

    Being from the South we should have known better than trying Vegas bbq. Fatty, overly sweet (even without sauce), and a small portion for the price. Sides were mass-produced and salty.

    Eh… Not what we expected. My family visited Las Vegas and anticipated something different than what was experienced. Cold food, middle of the road bbq. A cup of coffee at the end of the meal would have been nice but the waiter said no one bothered to brew any that night. Nothing special to us.

    Virgil’s exceeded expectations! We were in the mood for familiar American comfort food and Virgil’s came up as a recommendation on open table. We were seated immediately and had platters of BBQ in front of us in less than 15 minutes! The server that evening went above and beyond to make sure that we and every table around us were comfortable and happy. We were so impressed with her asking each customer about food allergies and religious food preferences. What a lovely and inclusive example of how to be a great human! The food was delicious, the service was next level. 10/10!!

    Food was okay, I think I was expecting so much more because of all the reviews I read, uh it was a nice restaurant had a nice vibe it was my 1st time going there probably my last, our waitress was a little off she kept looking at me like I was dumb because I asked for something wrong so that was a little uncomfortable.. but overall place was ok

    Great service but the pulled pork and nachos were so over sauced. There wasn’t an option on the pulled pork to have less sauce, apparently they pull it and sauce it before they serve it. We left feeling we had drank sauce with a side of meat. Great service though.

    Waitress was not attentive - even though we asked she still out in appetizers and meals at the same time. Main entrees was less to be desired - the ribs were dry. The mac n cheese and hush puppy appetizer was very good but I would not recommend. Also, we had key lime pie which was not presented well and it tasted as if it were old.

    Was in Vegas celebrating my birthday with family. Reservations made through Open Table was perfect. The ambiance and location was amazing. The meal I had wasn’t great - the burger was very bland and I needed to add a lot of BBQ sauce to enjoy it. The Fries were plain but the onion rings were decent. Ordered a margarita and it was too sweet. But the server was perfect and she removed it from the bill and let me get the Mug sized margarita which was delicious.

    They turn up the volume on the television to an insanely high level. This is supposed to be a restaurant, not a nightclub. We could not even communicate with the server. The prices are far too high for what you get. The entree is served on a piece of paper in a tray. The sides are served in separate bowls. The collard greens are too bitter. The shredded pork needs more sauce. There are sauce bottles on the table, but they are not labeled. The servers do an excellent job.
