Good BBQ

This restaurant has a good reputation, and it isn't hard to see why. The pulled pork BBQ is excellent, as are other offerings on their menu. Prices are generally reasonable, and one can eat well for less than $15. It is a place where you order and pick up your food. No servers there. It is a... read more

Stopped about 1:30.....we ordered the combo BBQ sandwich with coleslaw on it, onion rings instead of fries, and a drink and a cookie....YUM!!! My brother said if we had shown up at noon the line would have been too long, so we timed it just right! Going again!

Nothing better than a jumbo with slaw. Well, except maybe a macadamia nut cookie to finish it off. Ordering can take a while, but worth the wait. Mmm Mmm good.

My family loves good BBQ but I need to eat gluten free. Pierces BBQ offered both. They have a very tasty tomato based BBQ that is gluten free. They also had gluten free sides. They were very willing to exercise extra caution to avoid cross contamination. My family loved the cornbread, hush puppies, onion rings etc. Good food , good... More

This place is out of the way, but the locals keep in packed. It is always busy, but service is fast. It is like fast food barbecue and you can get it to go too. The barbecue is my the best I've ever had. The fries and hush puppies are very crisp. If you are a tourist, go out of... More

This place is busy from opening to closing. I've eaten there several times on trips to Virginia Beach to visit my in-laws. I usually get their Barbecue sandwiches topped with cole slaw, but this trip I got the Brisket dinner platter. It was awesome! I've had Barbecue in most of the "barbecue famous" locales and I think this was the... More

A group of coworkers decided to visit this place because most of us hadn't been. The food and service were really good. The restaurant isn't upscale. You order at the counter and then they call your number to get the food. Cost of food is good value and everyone was raving over their lunch specials.
