About Virgil's Real BBQ - New York City

Due to the mandated government shutdown caused by COVID-19, we have had to temporarily close. We look forward to re-opening soon! Virgil’s Real BBQ has been acclaimed as one of America’s top 10 BBQ restaurants by leading food critics. Established 1994 in the heart of NYC’s Times Square, Virgil’s Real BBQ has become the popular destination for millions of tourist & locals. Virgil’s Real BBQ was developed after extensive research, including a nationwide road trip in search of the best that BBQ has to offer. Local styles including Memphis pork ribs & chicken & Carolina pulled pork. Our meats are smoked at a low temperature over indirect heat for up to ten hours with a unique mix of hickory, oak & fruit woods in order to impart the most flavor & to keep the meat from drying out. To complement the main menu of BBQ specialties, we also offer a generous selection of traditional sides like barbecue beans, coleslaw & cheese grits & Southern-style desserts like banana pudding & Key Lime pies.
