After reading some reviews on here I decided to give this place a go, I am so glad I did. The food was lovely, really tasty BBQ food, the servers were great and the place had a really nice feel about it. The Virgils BBQ sauces are delish.

We went there on a Thursday evening without reserving a table. It was kind of packed already but we were lucky. The menu offers a variety of BBQ stuff, like pulled pork, chicken, or briskets, with regular side dishes like cornbread, mashed potatoes, potatoe salad, fries, etc. We had deep fried onion rings as starter (around $9 for quite a lot of it) and shared spare ribs (starter) and the "pick" to menu with fries, for around 8+23 bucks. The portion was quite a lot. If you are hungry I guess the $23 menu is really good, per person. We couldnt get desert in the end as it was too much. The staff was very kind, the place is clean, food tasty, beer is cold. Overall a great place, and given its central location (almost directly) at times square the prices are very reasonable.

This is american barbecue at it's very best!!! located on 44th street its easily accessible and all great! I am a huge fan of barbecue but was entirely blown away by its mouth wateringly appetising selection of food on offer! I had the brisket and pulled pork combo and it was heavenly! we got in straight away as there is two floors of seating, the staff were great and the overall experience was amazing! If your a meat fan then this is the place for you! New York's very finest!!!

Found this by accident....pouring with rain and we just wanted to sit down and have a meal in the dry...what a find...
Great food..we all had something different, I had the pulled chicken..fantastic. One of our party had the combo meal, how did he manage to eat it all...
Couldn't fault any of the meal/drinks or service.
5 of us with full meal and 2 glasses of Bud each + tip came to $193...not bad...
