I love this place

We always try to have a meal here when we are in the area. We went for lunch and for the first time in memory I didn't have to wait in live. We always get the BBQ with fries and enjoy a meal we can't finish. Service is always as fast as they can make it. We must have been... read more

I just had to stop at Pierces on my way home from a trip to the Outer Banks. I purchased the jumbo bbq with cole slaw and a side order of hush puppies for me and my husband. I decided to also buy some Bb&T, slaw and buns to take with me home to northern va. Pierces has been in... More

I have heard so many good things about this place we had to try it. We have had BBQ all over the US and this place disappointed us. It seemed like it was not cooked or smoked long enough? But when we asked they said that it was cooked perfect. If you have been to BBQ hotspots like Memphis, Kansas... More

Huge servings at reasonable prices. Order at the counter and they call your number when your order's ready. The barbecue sauce is a little on the bland side, but there's hot sauce on the table. The restaurant is large with a fairly large parking lot. Good for families with kids.

Drop in visit, my sister wanted bbq. She saw the sign somewhere and we (as a group) ate here. It was extremely crowded. Soon as we finished our food, time for next customers to take seats. Other then the crowded feeling, it was good. It felt more like fast food, but with bbq. Our group consisted of 9 people two... More

Tangy and sweet pulled pork BBQ sandwiches with cole slaw and generous sides of thick cut crinkle fries. Wonderful tradition for travelers in the I-64 corridor to Richmond.

We had heard good things about this place and hoped for a great experience. If you know ribs, this is not the place for you. First you stand in line to order, then you find out that no beer, wine or other alcohol is served. Next, you wait at the counter to hear your number called so that you can... More

Now I will say this first I am from the Carolinas where BBQ is a staple. With that being said Pierce's BBQ itself was good had a great smokey flavor. The sides on the other hand tasted bland the fries tasted like the frozen ones I make at home and coleslaw had no flavor. The atmosphere was very dark and... More

Ordered the BBQ pork dinner, with fries and hush puppies. Also a side order of catfish. The BBQ was not bad, they give you a lot. The catfish however was the worst I have eaten in a long time. It was so flat and hard on the bottom side I could have pounded a nail with it. The fish also... More
