“Big BBQ Goodness”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Big portions, great food, great place. Went with a group of friends, and absolutely loved the food. On recommendation, shared one of the platters with my wife, and it was more than plenty for the both of us. Good selection of beers on tap to top it off.

“In Time Square?”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Hidden behind ABC studios and Toys-R-US. If you can get in without a wait it's OK, but it's not so good to wait in line. Also if there is a line the service tends to get pushy. Pretty good food for Times Square, not bad prices. Not quite as clean as you might like,but they try. Stick with the bar-q-que. It's so loud that crying kids can't be heard if that helps.

“Best BBQ in the city.”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Every time I'm in NYC, I go to Virgil's. I know....I know....you're in NYC and find it hard to believe that the BBQ would be on-par. But this place is great. The ribs are awesome and make sure to order the hush-puppies with the maple syrup butter....so good!

“Good Value Tasty Food”
Reviewed August 23, 2013

Virgil's is a great, friendly restaurant, located right beside the Theatre District, serving tasty, well priced food. The perfect location to catch a quick bite after a show. We have eaten here on our last two trips and have found it ideal. Great service, tasty casual food and ideal location.

“Virgil's-yum”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Great pulled pork and chicken sandwiches. Super fast if you need them to be! Hand towels for napkins which pretty much tells you you're liable to get messy.
