I heard about this place like it was THE TRUTH for barbecue in Williamsburg. I ordered the pulled chicken barbecue sandwich. First, the only thing jumbo was the bread. i could not even see the meat in the bun. I was expecting a big sloppy barbecue sandwich. I had to open the bun to see the meat. Even after saucing... More

Awesome food, be prepared to wait and if you have the option order it to go during tourist season. Very good BBQ and worth every minute of your wait.

Probably one of the best BBQ places not only in WIlliamsburg but all of Hampton Roads and the metro-Richmond area. We live in Richmond but have family in the Williamsburg and Hampton Roads area, so we're familiar with what those places have to offer but we make it a point to stop at Pierce's! The restaurant is nothing fancy, no... More

Pierces is practically a Williamsburg. I gave it 5 stars as a BBQ place not haute cuisine. My first BBQ here was in 1978 and every time I drive past, I make it a point to enjoy Pierces.

I have had only a small number of BBQ Pork Sandwiches that I feel deserve a "One of the Best" ratings. Pierce's is one of those. Many smoke the meat in hopes of imparting flavor worthy of remembering, but too many fail. They plaster up colorful placards and signs that grab your attention and make you turn into their parking...

Quick ordering service as you walk up to the counter. The longest wait for food ordered from four people has been 20 min, and the shortest about 7 min. The BBQ is delicious and always enjoy every stop. The green beans are just the best, full of buttery rich flavor. Hush puppies are very good too! Great restaurant

The place reminds you of an old type of restaurant. I got the combo dinner because I wanted to try the shredded pork and chicken. I likes the chicken more than the pork but my absolute favorite was the pork shanks, they were delicious - nice and tender with that smoked look. The hush puppies were good but I've had... More

Thank you for your patronage! I am delighted that you were pleased enough to plan another visit.

We look forward to seeing you again soon! More

We were brought here by folks familiar with the place over the years, and it did not disappoint. After a day in the parks, this was belly stuffin', high quality BBQ. Clearly a local favorite, a no frills BBQ joint, you order at the window, pick up when your number is called, and find a seat around the place. It... More
