Nothing like a little BBQ to celebrate the arrival of spring

April 11, 2011


One of the top rated and most popular barbecue joints in Manhattan, barbecue is a way of life at this Midtown location. Their dedication to offering “real barbecue” led the proprietors to search the South for the secrets of the trade, sampling wide swathes of the best of America’s barbecue belt. The resulting menu is one of the world’s most stunning arrays of regional cuisine, ranging from all points south and east to create a singular and spectacular treatise on barbecue.

Virgil’s offers a number of different styles: Memphis Pork Ribs and Chicken, Carolina Pulled Pork, Owensboro Lamb, and Maryland Smoked Ham to name a few, and their dishes are smoked over a variety of hickory, oak, and fruitwoods smokers, creating distinctly different flavors and colors that speak to the true subtleties of the barbecue format.

Despite the reasonable Times Square prices, and the relatively reliable a la carte service, Broadway theater goers would be best advised to go here a bit early on account of the restaurant’s popularity and heavy traffic at pre-theater times between 5pm and 7pm.
