The tables are in the new Virgil’s BBQ that is scheduled to open next week at the expanding Tioga Downs & Casino complex. The current Casino has very a sterile all-you-eat buffet style restaurant and a sports-type bar in the lobby, so this will be a major upgrade.
I was there with our local entrepreneur meet-up, so this gave us a chance to see what goes into a large-scale restaurant launch. We also had a chance to check out the restaurant and also got a whiff of some smoked ribs.
This place has saddle bar seats and stage with bands and comedy shows already scheduled. So I don’t see any gamble in making a reservation for Virgils. As soon as they open the book this weekend, my name is going in.
