Tasty & Spicy BBQ etc.

Had lunch here last Saturday. An interesting menu of very tasty items. Try the pulled pork nachos! The 'Jerky' name is a bit misleading, they have great BBQ items too.

The absolute one place I wanted to first stop at in Virginia City was this place. I had to try their jerky and I ordered the hot...I was not disappointed. It was very close to my own homemade jerky. This is a must stop place!! Friendly staff too!!

I love eating at VC jerky company every time we come to the city. Had a little disappointment this time because our food was given to (taken by) someone else so we had to wait longer then usual. The girl behind the counter was really nice and apologized. even with this small error, we got our food and it was... More

We purchased some of the mild and some of the spicy jerky last weekend and although the flavor was good we found the jerky to be a bit dry. It might have been just this particular batch so the next time we are in VC we will try another flavor and post another review.

We came here for a day to tour Virginia City and looking for a place to eat. Checked TripAdvisor and saw this as the #5 restaurant. It looked like a place where locals would eat, sure enough, lines we're starting as soon as we got there. It took a while to get our food, since there were only two of... More

We were wandering the streets of Virginia City when I caught a whiff of this amazing smoky bbq smell. I followed my nose to the end of the street and there it was -- the Virginia City Jerky & Smokehouse. When there's a big bbq grill out front that is spewing delicious smelling smoke, you know that's a winner and... More

Good pulled pork sandwich, a bit pricey but hey, you are up on a hill twenty miles away from civilization in Carson City or Reno! Worth trying for good BBQ, locals like this place.

Four of us, all of whom know meat and barbecue, stopped off for a sandwich following a Bloody Mary down the street. Perfect.

Nice variety of sandwiches and sauces. Good value for a larger than average sandwich that comes with one side. We enjoyed the Tri-tip sandwich and the BBQ pulled pork (both regular and spicy) topped with coleslaw, with sides of potato salad and beans. Can't beat the $1 cans of Olympia beer. Very helpful and friendly staff. Nice outdoor patio. A... More

By chance stopped in here by smelling the smokers from down the street. Got the hickory smoked pulled pork sandwich that just melted in your mouth along with slaw. You know when people line up out the door the place must be good and it sure was. Just be prepared that you may end up eating outside.
