Went here last week for dinner, The meals are family style and feed 4-6 people depending on age. We opted for the Memphis rib dinner, Mac and Cheese and veggie platter. The food was O.K. nothing to rave about. The ribs were a little dry. The Mac and Cheese was bland. Needed a lot of seasonings but the veggie plate... More

Have dined here a few times. Family style so portions are very large. Highly recommend the cheese grits, mashed potatoes, beef brisket, and fried chicken. Have not tried the ribs but rumor has it, they are excellent as well. Give it a try.

I need to start off by saying that I HATE ATLANTIS.. It's a zoo and I can't stand staying there. But I was forced to be there for a business event and tried to make the best of it. One of my dining experiences (lunch) was at Virgils and I was really impressed. The service is spot-on. The portions are... More

Family style is not very useful for a family of 3. Food was ok but way too expensive for BBQ. I would prefer they serve indivual meals with lower prices.

We arrived at Virgil's for dinner, we didn't have reservations. I didn't think it was necessary since there were only two of us. I asked for the ribs and Cole slaw , My daughter received the Turkey Burger. My ribs were tough and very hard. the woman next to me was finishing an order when I came and I inquired... More

The overall impression was very nice. Wife's food was OK, but nothing special. The ribs seemed very dry hard. Good sauce poor ribs. She had chicken sandwich that was ok. I had brisket sandwich which said it was a favorite and was horrible. Nothing but fatty chewy meat. The fries were good though. I asked if it was supposed to... More

My husband and I came to eat here and it was reeeally good! What we didn't realize is the amount of food we got. It was sooo much food to serve for like 4 people. What was really nice is that we took the food to go but we thought we would probably lose out on it since there's no... More

The food is served "family style" with the portions being large. It was ok, but not really smokey flavored from being cooked, the sauce kinda drowns out the flavors of the meat at times. the meat wasn't a fall of the bone smoked bbq. Prices are right inline with every other food place in area (pricey). We were told the... More

First, I'll say the brisket was excellent. But... When seated it was my wife, our 7 year old (who doesn't eat BBQ) and myself. The waiter gave us the menu and explained that the entrees feed 3-4 adults and that was the only option. Huge amount of wasted brisket and mac & cheese. However, we overheard a different waiter give... More

We were hoping for meat that falls off the bones ribs and juicy brisket. Instead we got undercook, tough ribs cut up as an appetizer and very dry brisket. Really a shame as we were hoping for a Texas throw down type of meal. Server couldn't recommend anything which was a sign that we should have left...you could tell she... More
