“Chicken wings from Hell with Virgils own secret Hot sauce!!”
Reviewed March 19, 2014

When we arrived, the scene was alive with Miami Heat vs San Antonio Spurs final match (i guess) so we joined in supporting the Miami heat team! and then had a wonderful round of Chicken wings with Creme bleu sauce and some of Virgils secret hot sauce (not for sale)!! Boy Miami and the Wings did raise the Heat up!!

“Good steak”
Reviewed March 17, 2014

Even though it's a BBQ restaurant, the steak is actually really flavorful and good. I enjoyed this restaurant. I felt comfortable and liked my food. Prices were decent as we'll.

“Wings are to die for”
Reviewed March 17, 2014 via mobile

First visited this place 10 years ago and returned with the family for another eating event
Great service and potions are huge
Took the wings as a starter and could not even finish that !!
Family had ribs and fried chicken whose portions beat them all
Beer wine and overall quality was great for a reasonably priced meal close to the centre of Times Square
