    My husband & I were there for our first mommy & daddy get away. We LOVE bloody marys & had ran across the Bull Rider Bloody Mary on the internet & as soon as we saw it we knew we had to check it out. The Bloody Mary was amazing! The brisket was some of the best I’ve ever had & the presentation of it all was 10/10. We also ordered breakfast that was incredible. The french toast was light & fluffy & the country potatoes with peppers were seasoned & cooked to perfection! We sat outside & it was great, a perfect place to enjoy the outdoors & people watch. Highly recommend.

    The overall visit was okay nothing spectacular. The server was pretty busy had to wave her down for refills. My margarita was spilled on the table when she delivered although she apologized she didn’t try to clean it so I sat in stickiness throughout my meal. I asked for napkins to clean it myself. The food was okay best party was the banana pudding and the team acknowledging my birthday!

    I have been wanting to try Virgil‘s barbecue for years. Finally at a conference in Las Vegas I was able to go for lunch. The best pulled pork I’ve ever had, and I have had a lot! I would have liked to of tried the ribs, but a bit too much for me to eat at lunchtime. If I ever get the pleasure of diving again at Vergils, I will get the ribs.

    Ordered the 2 person sampler plate. Had the Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes, railroad fries. Loved everything with the exception of the chicken with the sampler plate. Chicken was good but everything else was just so good.

    Where does one start, the service was very good and the food was even better. Food portions were more than enough, some you could even share. A great variety of drinks that came in different glasses, mugs and or mason jars which was kind of fun. The location is great with easy access to the fun outside. A definite return to this place will happen.

    The brisket and pulled chicken were both well-seasoned and scrumptious. The bbq was fresh and yummy. We will be returning. Our server was prompt, accurate and checked on us the perfect amount. Loved the fresh squeezed lemonade. We will be returning!

    The food was pretty good, the service, sucked. The brisket was moist, the chicken was tasty, our server, couldn't remember her name. She forgot our ice tea order, so she just brought us water. She forgot what our sides were, so she had to ask again. We had to ask for refills on the tea. We wanted something sweet, so we left and got ice cream, we weren't sure if we would get the dessert.

    Service was great. Barbecue was decent, though I’ve had much better back home (NC) and when visiting Texas. Would not get the smoked wings again though. Overall, not a bad spot on the Vegas Strip.

    Hadn’t been to Linq in awhile. Decided to try Virgil’s before a Sat nite concert. No problem getting table. Fun ambiance. Good, friendly service. Tried the hush puppies (yum), enough for 4 to share. The large portion of wings was also too much for two - these are large, unseparated, meaty wings that are cooked in a dry rub. Different but tasty. Almost could use fork and knife on them. If getting them as app, get the small portion. Also tried the brisket sandwich. Brisket was okay, prefer Lucille’s at Red Rock better. Banana pie dessert was meh. A solid B- largely on basis of location and ambiance.

    Food was great, our server was terrible. She disappeared for a period of time and we had finished our meal and wanted our check but she was MIA. She then helped everyone around us and we had to go approach her for our check.
