“Large Portions”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 23 July 2012

Hometown good! Don't go in the mood for a salad, their home cooking is way too good to pass on. My veggi omlet was loaded with all the right stuff!

“frequent flyer”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2012

Nothing has changed, but since we have Sunday breakfast here about 30 times a year, I must comment again! Huge helpings of stick to your ribs goodness. Friendly servers make this what small-town American dining is all about. Get the large special burrito and feed 3!

“Blue collar excellence”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 22 August 2010

Best breakfast anywhere! Belly-bustin breakfast burritto is to die for! You might have to chase away an occasional fly, and I'm usually the only diner without a baseball cap, but this is great small town american food with gigantic servings. If your really hungry, ask for their one pound gynormous burger...yum!

“You can't beat this for a homestyle diner.”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 17 January 2010

I've been to Virg's for breakfast and lunch. You can see right away why all the locals from Erda and Tooele head for Virg's. To find Virg's heading south on the Hwy 36, just before you get to Tooele, watch a traffic light with a Drive-In movie on the left, and Virg's is on your right. You can also spot it because of all the pickups, stake-beds and other cars parked in front.

The food is great, and big plates of it. The staff are what my Dad used to call "all wool and a yard wide". Real life friendly waitresses who stay on top of your order, your coffee refills and everything else.

If you are worried that classic American roadside cuisine is disappearing, a visit to Virg's will renew your faith. They have a seafood menu too, and murals to go with it.

Before you get back in your car step across the road to Thompson's Smokehouse for some excellent beef jerky. It's the real thing, not whatever that strange material next to the cash registoer at convenience stores.

“sometimes a wonderful thing”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 21 May 2009

This place has its ups and downs. The first time I ate there it was excellent. Large portions and tasty items. Since then each time has been a gamble. Portions are always large. Breakfast is a winner. I wouldn't get the steak dinner special.
