Privy 5 Overview

Share |

The catch phrase for Virgil's is "Your belly with thank you". The fact that a delicately placed white linen napkin is not put in your lap when you are seated, rather a burgundy hand towel is set, is telling. This is the place to eat Memphis baby-back pork ribs, red beans, and Georgia chicken fried steak. BBQ is supposed to be sucked off your fingers, and I'll tell you a secret, Ryan Seacrest goes to Virgil's every New Year before he hosts "New Year's Rockin' Eve". They give the kids crayons and killer hot dogs, while parents take time for their tummies to thank them. It is situated in tourist trap hell for New Yorkers - Times Square; but they still make the effort to visit Artie Cutler's genuine Southern Pride smokers for Carolina pulled pork, cornbread, hot buttermilk biscuits, Mexican, Creole, and Comfort food.
