About Us


Who are We!

In 1965, Jessie and Virgie Handsborough decided to open Virgie’s Place. This quickly became the neighborhood teenager’s spot for great burgers, music and fun. In 1975, the building was converted into a community grocery store, Handsborough’s Grocery, until 1998.   

In February 2005, the Handsborough’s son Adrian, took a leap of faith and opened Virgie’s Bar-B-Que. For over 20 years Adrian has been cooking “barbecure” for family, friends and especially his mother Virgie, who taught him how to cook barbecue.   

Virgie’s Bar-B-Que is based on the belief that our customers’ satisfaction is of the utmost importance. Our entire team is committed to serve you. As a result, a high percentage of our business is from repeat customers and referrals.   

We look forward to serving you!
