    Got seated right away. Friendly, attentive server. The food was good value for vegas and good portions. Onion rings with ranch dip were delicious. Mac and cheese was very cheesy but a little gritty? Probably just needed to be warmer. Got plate sampler and everything was tender and yum. Thought brisket pieces were a little dry but still tasted good. Veg and cornbread were yum. We had a nice time and would recommend a visit. Surrounding area outside was fun too.

    At a BBQ place inVehas off the strip I was impressed with the quality. I was expecting really mediocre food because it was so reasonable. The pulled pork, ribs and sides were really good and the sides, which even at some great BBQ joints are an afterthought,were outstanding

    We had visited Virgil’s Real BBQ Las Vegas for the first time during Super Bowl weekend February 2022. Being from Kansas City, we thought that we would try it again on our most recent trip and again it did not disappoint. We ordered the Pig Out platter which was plenty of food for the two of us. I would highly recommend checking this place out. The service was very good and the food came out quickly.

    When we walked in the food smelled really good. Sadly it was average when it arrived at the table. The ribs were great. The pulled pork was dry and the fries cold. Service was good but left a bit disappointed at the end.

    Steve was great; made great recommendations and provided excellent service for our birthday dinner! Outdoor seating was nice; the mist-machines made it pleasant even above 100 degrees out for before sunset. Don’t get the brisket plate though; it’s pretty dry. Everyone else’s food was great. Did I mention that Steve is an excellent server? Would highly recommend trying to sit in his section.
