Highlights of Virgil's Real BBQ

Established in 1994 in the heart of NYC's Time Square, Virgil's Real Barbecue has become the popular destination for millions of tourists and locals. Virgil's meats are smoked at a low temperature over indirect heat for up to ten hours with a unique mix of hickory, oak and fruit woods in order to impart the most flavor and to keep the meat from drying out. To complement the main menu of BBQ specialties, Virgil’s also offers a generous selection of traditional sides like barbecue beans, coleslaw and cheese grits and Southern-style desserts like banana pudding, key lime and sweet potato pies. Virgil’s is more than just great BBQ. Incredible entrée salads, catfish and other vegan and vegetarian options as well are available.

Virgil's Real BBQ back story

Virgil’s Real BBQ was developed after a nationwide road trip in search of the best that BBQ has to offer. Local styles including Memphis pork ribs and chicken, Carolina pulled pork and Texas beef brisket were all discovered and now offered on Virgil’s Real BBQ’s menu along with many other authentic Southern favorites. 

Virgil’s was brought to Las Vegas by Alicart, the same restaurant group that also created the hugely popular CARMINE’S, NYC’s Legendary Family Style Italian Restaurant, located in Caesars Forum Shops.
