Back when the Houston Chowhounds were still doing BBQ Smackdowns every year, Virgie's consistently received high marks for its rich, smoky flavor and tender texture, most evident in its popular pork ribs. But according to pitmaster Adrian Handsborough, it's the brisket that is far more popular at the restaurant. He sells more than 100 pounds of it each day, far more than his pork ribs. Both are excellent options, however, especially when topped with Handsborough's signature spicy-sweet barbecue sauce. And the nearly 8-year-old restaurant makes its own sides, too, ranging from an excellent, picnic-ready potato salad to homestyle green beans.
