VIRGIL’S, straight from New York City, has been at the Linq for 5 years.
Three stories high, this world-famous barbeque place is a sister to the chain, Carmines. Virgil’s combines all the major smokehouse favorites from across the country. Want southern Atlanta cooking? They have it. How about Kentucky? They have it? Want Texas, Alabama, Oklahoma’s or Louisiana, just ask the waiter and it will be on the menu.
Featuring homemade buttermilk biscuits and cornbread, as starters, they offer Mississippi catfish, a combination of pulled pork, chicken and brisket smothered with jalapenos, hushpuppies, soups, and burgers made any way you want.
There is a Virgil’s BBQ salad with pulled pork, the famous trainwreck fries covered with yes, basically a train wreck of side items, and trash riblets. A side of cheese grits, which I have a hard time finding in Las Vegas, burnt end dishes, and side dishes of collard greens are some of my favorites.
There are two massive smokers that go 24 hours, pumping out the massive amounts of meats. If you have a few in your party you can order the pig out platter, which consists of a little of almost all the meats that they feature. The top floor has a private dining room and a great view of The Linq. Mashed potatoes, homemade mac and cheese, hickory smoked baked beans are some of the other sides, where two of them come with every order. The dessert menu is just as extensive.
Doors open at 10 a.m. daily and of course, they take walk-ins. Prepare for plenty of sauce on every order. 702-389-7400 Real BBQ Live Music. www.virgilsbbq.com
