Almost drove past Pierce's Pitt but glad we didn't. The line was out the door and well worth the wait. Definitely some of the best pulled pork I've ever had in VA. I have to find more excuses to drive to Williamsburg just to get more bbq.

We stopped in for lunch after a friend recommended them . As being first timers we were funneled into the queue and had to make a hasty menu selection. After being whisked through you are handed a ticket with you order number. Take this time to split up and start cruising the dining room for signs that a table is... More

We have visited this area for several years - boy, did we wish we had stopped in way before now! The line was to the door, but we received our meal within 15 minutes from the time we arrived. The cashier was very friendly and took time to welcome us and explain that we may have to "fight" for a... More

We searched out this place on a recommendation. So glad we did. It was terrific! We both had pulled pork plates which included fries, hushpuppies and coleslaw. The hushpuppies were the best we've ever eaten. The pulled pork was great. Even enjoyed the coleslaw and fries. You order at the counter from an extensive list of BBQ options. No BBQ... More

A town favorite as this place was packed. I was overwhelmed from the beginning because of all the people and the ordering process. I hurriedly selected ribs off the menu and paid extra for a side of green beans. The ribs tasted like cinnamon and the green beans were unremarkable. My husband ordered a sandwich combo and was much more... More

Probably our fifth time at Pierce's BBQ, always on our list during each vacation in the area. Again we arrived early avoiding the noon rush. Their location while easy to get to is not on the main track. We have seen anything in the parking lot from pickup trucks to a Rolls on one stop. We each had pulled pork,... More

Ok, disclaimer I have been coming here since I was little and my dad brought me, back then it was a walk up shack with a picnic table. Shack or no it was awesome then and it is awesome now!

We stop at Pierce's every time we are in Williamsburg because they have great barbecue. Almost like a McDonald 's as far as atmosphere, but you place your order and your number is called quickly. Pulled pork sandwiches are outstanding as well as pulled chicken salad. They also sell their bbq sauces.

This place came highly recommended by locals. I ordered the combo platter because I wanted to taste a little bit of everything. My wife had a pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw on the sandwich and my son had a cheeseburger. My platter came with pork shanks. I never had pork shanks and was curious to see what they were. The...
