I rode my road bike up to VC from Reno so by the time I got to town, I was plenty hungry. Cruising downtown I saw this place with a short line and decided to give it a try. It's a tiny place on the south end of the main strip area so there's a little more parking in the... More

We went in for something to drink and some jerky. We didn't dine here but would have loved to. The bbq sandwich looked and smelled amazing. The jerky is tasty. The staff was nice. There were two older teen boys eating and I heard the one say his sandwich was great.

Family and I stopped in to sample the jerky. Not only did I buy both the A Chili and Spicy jerky but we came back for lunch! Cara was so friendly - we felt at home immediately. All the food except hot dogs and bags of chips are made in house. I overheard another customer say today 'They sure know... More

Walked up to this place after the sign said it was open. Saw employee inside but he ignored us. Guess my money was no good. Can't tell how the food or jerky is but can tell you the service leaves something to be desired.

Virginia City Jerky Co was our first stop in our visit to Virginia City and we're glad it was! First of all the jerky was delishy. But secondly, the young lady at the cash register was very helpful in directing us on our day. She also offered a few bits of city history that were fascinating. A great way to... More

OK, we were starving by the time we got to Virginia City, checked into our hotel, and started looking for a place to eat. We were expecting average food somewhere, but asked a local who directed us to the Virginia City Jerky Company. This place was fabulous. You stand in line and order. The staff were super-friendly and knowledgeable. After... More

Excellent pulled pork sandwich made on site. Jerky is good too. Service is good, great place to go for a quick lunch in historical Virgina City. Closes at 4 so if you want it for dinner you need to take it out before they close.

The pork BBQ sandwich was probably the best I have ever had because it was smokey tasting without a lot of sauce. You could add more sauce, but you don't need to. The bun was not a grocery store lame run of the mill bun..it tasted like someone had baked it in their own stove at home..and toasted...do not miss... More

We stopped here on a whim as we walked around the Virginia mining town. We ordered the smoked tri-tip sandwich. Excellent! We had the coleslaw as a side dish, and a cold beer. Outside and inside tables with a nice view. They offer BBQ pork, beef jerky, and beans. Great for kids, inexpensive, fast, and very casual.

Located at the end of C Street, we stopped by after walking through town on one side of the street. The staff was very friendly and welcoming. The menu is limited but offers something for everyone. The smell of the BBQ outdoors is a great way to lure people in. The tri tip sandwich was amazing and with a side... More
