What Our Customers Say

Virgil's hosted a company BBQ event for our entire New York office. The entire process and interaction with the Virgil's team - from proposal to execution to clean up - was professional, friendly and efficient. Our employees raved about the food and the presentation! It could not have gone better. Thanks Virgil's for making our employee event a success!

Justin H.

Nice, big space and extremely accommodating events staff! We worked with the team at Virgil’s to create the perfect graduation party for our son and his friends.From food to service, everything was impeccable. Thank you Virgil’s!

Jackie E.

Didn't expect much from a Times Square BBQ joint, but Virgil's didn't disappoint! We had a party of 15 for my daughter's 12th birthday. That's right, ten 12 year-old girls and 5 adults.  Already asking for trouble. But they handled our party with perfection! We waited for only 5 minutes when we arrived for our reservation. The wait staff was very attentive to the girls and kept the food and drinks coming promptly. We'd recommend if you are in NYC and seeking some good smokey flavor!
