Las Vegas isn’t really known for having a lot of barbecue options – especially on the Strip. That all changed with the opening of Virgil’s Real Barbecue at The LINQ Promenade earlier this week.

No matter what type of barbecue you like, Virgil’s has it. You’ll find flavors from Tennessee, Kentucky, Texas, the Carolinas and Missouri. Executive Chef Neal Corman designed the menu to be a gastronomic tour of the South’s regional BBQ styles, from Memphis pork ribs and chicken to Texas beef brisket.

The meats get their flavor from a unique blend of hickory, oak and fruit woods. They’re smoked at a low temperature over indirect heat for up to 10 hours and the end result is delicious. You can get your barbecue in the form of sandwiches, salads, combo platters or full dinners.

Any good barbecue joint has to have traditional side dishes and Virgil’s doesn’t disappoint. Choose from barbecue baked beans, mashed potatoes, collard greens, coleslaw and cheese grits. Be sure to end your meal with Southern-style desserts including banana pudding and Key Lime and sweet potato pies.

If the food doesn’t make Virgil’s one of your favorite barbecue restaurants in Las Vegas, the drinks will. Libations include 14 beers on tap like the exclusive Virgil’s Ale from Magic Hat. Virgil’s is also the only place in Las Vegas serving Lonestar on tap. Vegas loves its party-sized drinks and Virgil’s has a couple of great options. You can grab a “Party in a Jar,” featuring seven varieties of cocktails served in one-gallon Mason jars, and there’s the option to have any beer on tap served in an oversized barrel.

The new two-story Virgil’s location spans 14,000 square feet with private dining rooms, three outdoor spaces and live country, bluegrass and rock music nightly.

Virgil’s is open Sunday-Thursday from 11 a.m. to 1 a.m. and Friday and Saturday 11 a.m. to 2 a.m.
