Great meat; very friendly staff; only one sauce

We love Pierce's and make a point of stopping there every time we are in town. If they had more than one sauce, it would be phenomenal. Excellent sides. They keep the place very clean and we enjoy looking at the old photos (of Pierce's) on the walls.

Not at all fancy, you order from a counter and then have to find a seat cafeteria style but the food is great!

The best ribs ! I always make it a point to eat at Pierce's at least once during our Williamsburg visit. We opted to order take out and avoid the always long lines. This was a wise choice as I strolled up to the pick up area while missing the huge line of people ordering.

While on vacation with family and friends, we happened upon Pierce's Pitt Bar-B-Cue. This place clearly has some history and there was a bunch of people in the restaurant, which is always a good sign. The staff was really pleasant and friendly, and they seemingly looked eager to serve us, which is also a good sign. The smell of wood... More

Yes, years ago I saw then Governor mark Warner and his entourage chowing doen on BBW sandwiches, I knew then that this was a place to go. I have been eating at Pierce's since about 1995, and have never had a bad meal. I especially partial to the "JC's Special"; a large pulled pork BBQ sandwich with cole slaw and... More

So I read a bunch of reviews on this place but just had to check it out on my own. As usually it was all five of us kids included. The boys ordered a cheeseburger which is made to order which means a 20 min wait. Well worth it! I had to try it. It was juicy and thick, better... More

I never travel I-64 without stopping for barbecue at Pierce's. It is always crowded and noisy but the service is extremely fast and the barbecue is outstanding and very reasonably priced. Stop once and like me and many others, you won't pass it when you are on I-64!

Our favorite bbq in the area. Been coming here for 20+ years and it is still the same high quality bbq. We love to sit outside at the picnic tables.

Pulled pork sandwich was OK - I concede that my opinion on their pulled pork is very subjective, it might be called wonderful by some. The coleslaw on the sandwich was a nice touch. I was by myself and decided to get a go order - they failed to include any sauce, that may be a contributing factor for my... More
