Village Voice's Description

Persistent rumors have the fare at this BBQ pit improving, and we are pleased to report that this is partly true. The pork ribs, done with a modish spice rub, now verge on the excellent; also tasty are the hot links and Owensboro lamb. Unfortunately, the brisket remains hideous, with the texture of dry roast beef, and if you order the half chicken, they sometimes substitute pulled chicken mixed with too-sweet sauce. Best by far is still the plate of perfect biscuits with whipped maple butter.

Tips from foursquare

  • The Corcoran Group on 12/17/10

    Despite the crowds, you won’t wait long to dive into Train Wreck Fries, Virgil’s Pig Out, Corn Bread, Virgil’s Coleslaw and Cheese Grits with a Fall Off The Porch Ice Tea.

  • New York Habitat on 11/15/11

    Tender brisket, slide-off-the-bone ribs, and mouth-watering pulled pork. Get any of those and pair it with the trainwreck fries, you won't know what to do with yourself.

  • James S. on 12/29/09

    The hush puppies will weigh you down all night, but they are oh so worth it.

  • The Corcoran Group on 04/22/10

    Incredible barbecue, but it's the trainwreck fries and hush puppies that really make this New York classic worth the visit.

  • Dan P. on 10/03/09

    If you go to Virgil's you have to check out the Trainwreck Fries.
