I have been eating at Virgil's for at least 7 years and I have never had a bad experience! The food is terrific and the drinks will hit you like a ton of bricks! The "Fall Off The Porch Long Island Iced Tea" is the best drink that I have ever had in New York. I'm a native New Yorker now living in North Carolina and even with the great cooking down here nothing compares to Virgil's! I miss my family and close, close friends and one of the many things I TRULY miss is VIRGIL'S.

The food is average,however, the service is horrible. They never have white rice and once i ask an attendant why there was no white rice she said, " because they don't pay me to cook rice, so i'm not doing it." The female employees are very rude, so ...

This place is great. First time I have ever been here, and we had service very fast, and the food came to our table in notime, and there was 7 of us, and this was the fastes service I have ever had. I liked it so much the next week I came back with my parents, and more friends. Pulled pork is great, and so is the peanut butter pie...

I celebrated my 44th Birthday at your fine restaurant. When in NY I always dine at the Dallas BBQ located at 72nd Street Central Park West, but from now on I will definitely dine at Virgil's. The food was delicious and the drinks were awesome. Keep Up the Good Work!!!!
