Virgil’s BBQ in New York City Honors Owensboro Restaurant [Photos]
In New York City last week, I was hungry and popped into Virgil's BBQ on 44th Street. Naturally, I was quite surprised to see a very familiar name on my placemat.
How cool is that? Old Hickory gets a shout-out on the Virgil's placemats. Apparently, the folks at Virgil's know a good mutton sandwich when they taste one and they know Old Hickory has some of the best mutton in the country. Love it!
And, I must admit. Being from Owensboro (the BBQ capital of the World), I was a bit skeptical about trying New York City BBQ and "Southern-style" fixins. But Virgil's served it up . . . and it was awesome!
Check out this plate . . . Pulled BBQ Chicken!
Or this one . . . Chicken Fried Steak (with a corn flake and saltine crust)!
Virgil's bills itself as NYC's premier Southern-style restaurant and, for my money and taste buds, it delivered! If you're ever in New York City and you start craving a taste of home, you'll find it at Virgil's!
