    Service was great. Barbecue was decent, though I’ve had much better back home (NC) and when visiting Texas. Would not get the smoked wings again though. Overall, not a bad spot on the Vegas Strip.

    The lemonade was beyond bitter. I had a black bean burger that crumbled all over my plate. I had to eat it with a fork. Went for the experience but I won’t return.

    Hadn’t been to Linq in awhile. Decided to try Virgil’s before a Sat nite concert. No problem getting table. Fun ambiance. Good, friendly service. Tried the hush puppies (yum), enough for 4 to share. The large portion of wings was also too much for two - these are large, unseparated, meaty wings that are cooked in a dry rub. Different but tasty. Almost could use fork and knife on them. If getting them as app, get the small portion. Also tried the brisket sandwich. Brisket was okay, prefer Lucille’s at Red Rock better. Banana pie dessert was meh. A solid B- largely on basis of location and ambiance.

    Our waitress could barely hear us. Ordered an appetizer, but our food got there first... Turns out they forgot to put the order in. Possibly because she could barely hear us... Food was fine. Nothing to rave about.

    Food was great, our server was terrible. She disappeared for a period of time and we had finished our meal and wanted our check but she was MIA. She then helped everyone around us and we had to go approach her for our check.

    I ordered the beef brisket sandwich. Came out cold. Not even a touch of warmth to it. Had to send it back, which I hate to do. The brisket was so tough I ate about a 10th of my $20 brisket sandwich. Service was extremely slow, understandable as they are short staffed, but, then they need to limit reservations so they can handle the crowd.

    Virgil was just okayyy. The ambiance was nice and kid friendly. Unfortunately, I wasn’t excited about the food. Except for the fries… the fries were delicious, hot, and perfectly salted. My son also really liked the mac n cheese. If your looking for some REAL, really good BBQ, keep looking. Also, the service wasn’t great.

    Good vibe & atmosphere! We ordered the Pig Out Feast and BBQ Nachos. The feast was definitely good for 3-4 people! Lots of food. The nachos were delicious as well, good sauce and lots of meat. The only downfall was the ribs. The bark was inedible, and the meat was so dry it crumbled when you put the fork in it. Overall, we had a good meal.

    We keep trying something different at Virgil's. This time around we had the small order of BBQ wings for the appetizer, which we've had on a number of prior visits. But we also shared their BBQ salad, which we never had before. The wings were a bit smaller than previous times, but still super tasty. The BBQ salad was chock full of pulled pork, pulled chicken, and a few slices of brisket. Because we had the wings first, we chose to just share one salad. With no other starter food, the salad would probably be best for just one person, but having the wings as well, sharing it was just right in terms of filling ourselves. We love Virgil's and really appreciate the discount they offer for locals.

    We had a nice meal at Virgil's. I had the Restaurant Week menu and my choices were fried pickles, the pork spare ribs, two sides, and apple pie. My sides were grilled vegetables and collard greens. My husband had a brisket platter, and his sides were grilled vegetables and coleslaw. The meals came with a small, jalapeño, cornbread muffin. The waitress appeared to be either new or her timing was just off. The first glass of iced tea she brought for each of us was in a plastic to go cup. When we wanted refills she brought a standard size restaurant glass. She was a nice young woman but just made several errors. The appetizer came after the main dishes and wasn't hot which led me to believe it had been sitting around ready to go but forgotten. I had made the choice of chess pie for my dessert rather than the apple pie. This wasn't her error, but rather a disappointment, she said that the chess pie was no longer offered on the restaurant Week menu but I could order in off of the menu. While it still appeared on the printed menu, they were substituting chocolate cake. The apple pie and bread pudding were still available as printed but not the chess pie. Disappointed that any establishment would do that. The food itself was good. Virgil's uses excellent dry rub. They offer nice sauces on the tables and their with meats were flavorful and smokey. The cornbread muffins were pleasant but nothing special. A little butter served with the muffin would have been an improvement. The grilled vegetables were good. The coleslaw was average. I love collard greens and these were fine. I didn't rank them exceptionally high because they tasted as if they had added sugar. That's just not my preference for greens. All in all, the experience was mixed. The atmosphere was fitting for a BBQ restaurant and rustic in nature. I loved that they take reservations rather than walk up only service. The portions served as side items are nice, the fried pickles

    They could not locate our reservation for 8 people that we made months ago despite it showing on the app and us getting confirmation texts . Luckily it wasn’t too busy when we arrived so we were able to get a table but I would have been very disappointed if the place was too full to seat us since we had the reservation.
