Very good food in Virginia City NV!

We split a tri tip sandwich and it filled us both up. It was very good. It is located in Virginia City NV. If I return to Virgina City in the future I would return. Large portions and friendly service.

The food here was so awesome. If I had more money I would bought more. Tri tip sandwich and half rack of ribs filled two people.

We really enjoyed the tri tip sandwich. Good portions. Cornbread was good too. Place is small but the smoke brought us in from the middle of town. Staff is great. Took some jerky home for later. Really glad we made the side trip on our way to Reno.

Many of the restaurants in Virginia City are directed towards providing a "historical" style dinning experience in a classic space. While fun, the food is usually not that great and the prices are inflated. The Virginia City Jerky Company is the opposite of that. The food, in particular the Tri-Tip is excellent and full of flavor. The service is friendly... More

We finally got a chance to stop after hearing local rave reviews. I had the Mountain Mahogany smoked tri-tip sandwich. Awesome bun with loads of sliced tri-tip that is very moist and tasty. Try it with the slaw in your sandwich. We also had half a rack of ribs. We will be coming back. The sauces are vinegar bases like... More

Once I smelled that BBQ I could not pass by. I had a great pulled pork sandwich with mac and cheese for my side dish. Wonderful. I would suggest an option sweet and mild sauce to temper the spicy sandwich. Everyone should make a point of eating here.

This restaurant was one of the recommendations made by the conductor on our V&T Railway trip. We both had the smoked beef sandwiches. The flavour was unbelievable. It was so good. You get a choice of side with the sandwich. I had their potato salad which was excellent and my Husband had the coleslaw which was also very good. We... More

The tendrils of the lovely hickory and mahogany greeted me a mile away, promising the tender perfectly prepped beef and pork. The Mahogany Tri-trip is a slow melting flavor bomb. The 3 BBQ flavor actually have robust flavoring and not just sugar and smoke. Its like they found some kind of magical portal to a meat candyland. Its a popular... More
