Did I come on the wrong day then all the reviewers. This place should be shut down it is so gross. RUN AWAY!!!! Absolutely GROSS slop worse than cafeteria food in the 80s with stale chips and tacos and SERIOUS mystery meat. I haven't eaten food this nasty ever. It is like they took the expired rejects from the dollar... More

After a long day on the road Virgies was a great way to end our day. There's nothing fancy about this place, just plain good old fashioned, homemade New Mexican food. Try the cheese crisp! We had a couple of the combo plates and even bought 2 dozen flour tortillas to take home. $3.50 a dz and their huge!

"Oh, no it's Mexican" we said as we pulled in. We were just not up for another bout of Mexican food. We are so glad we stayed. This was all family owned and home made fresh New Mexican food. Not a chain, not from freezer to plate. Really really good and the sauces were authentic from New Mexican cuisine. Even... More

We drove in from Kansas City and when we hit Gallup we were pretty hungry. We checked into our hotel and asked where was a good place to eat. They sent us to Virgie's. Both my wife and I tried different things and everything we ate was wonderful. The waiter was very helpful and took great care of us.. The... More

Yes, as mentioned by other reviews, the building (outside) and location are not the best, BUT....... the food is excellent! Can't remember when I have had such good authentic Mexican food! My husbands Mexican steak was perfect and my enchiladas were fabulous! Drinks were the best and very reasonably priced. Two of us had 4 drinks between us, dinner and... More

Located in an interesting area at the west end of town, this place is a true local hangout with good New Mexican food. The rellenos and enchiladas were very good and the chiles flavorful.

Located between a Chinese Massage place and an Adult Bookstore, was definitely off putting. Add to that the constant stream of young kids trying to sell various Native American jewelry, we were leary of this place. But the food was surprisingly good and fairly affordable. Great table service, cashier was very overwhelmed and a bit short with us. Overall, a... More

The hotel clerk recommended Virgie's because it was close to the Hotel. All I can say is that it was average and we will go find a franchise on the next trip. 6 different times we were approached at dinner to purchase jewelry by kids and adults. The location is in West Gallup which appears to be the older section... More

I went to visit my dad and he took me to eat here. I had a Steam burrito that was on the special. It was one of the BEST burritos I've ever had. It had a thin slab of steak in a thick homemade tortilla (Like the ones my grandma made growing up) with that NM chili I've grown to... More
