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...

I hear Pierces referred to as a BBQ institution in Virginia. I have been there twice now and find that to be simply overstating things. The place is always busy, so that goes to show that it is at the very least pretty decent grub. I just think that there is nothing special about the BBQ. I found it decent... More

Tasty BBQ and solid portions. The prices were fair. I was on a field trip with 40 middle school students and the restaurant was accommodating, fast and friendly. I love South Carolina BBQ, and there BBQ was very good, but not quite great.

I was skeptical at first. Usually when people tell me a place is great, I am disappointed. On my first trip, I was underwhelmed. Turns out, I just didn't order the right thing. On subsequent trips, I discovered the bbq chicken sandwich lunch combo which comes with fries, a drink, and a cookie. Great price for LOTS of food. The... More

After vacations to Williamsburg and thinking about going here, but never quite fitting it in, we finally visited and I am so sorry we had missed out. Among our group we tried the pulled pork, the pulled chicken, and their ribs. The side dishes were all excellent! Every bit of it was so delicious! Some of the best pulled pork... More

I love pulled pork. This was my first visit to a wonderful family owned business. One of the best pulled pork sandwiches I've ever had. The New Brunswick stew is hearty and delicious. Place is a great value and deserves 5 stars. Great customer service.

Odd to us that dining in meals came in plastic boxes and the inside is a bit dark and dirty. Other than ribs, no whole meat on the menu - everything already chopped up and sauced. No extra sauce on the tables, no chicken quarters, no brisket. Side beans good, side slaw ok.

Thanks for taking the time to write a review. We do try to keep our restaurant very clean, in fact we have won awards for during so! Possibly, you came in on a busy day and things were a bit untidy. Our decor is consistent with a 70's barbecue "joint." No frills! I am very glad that you did like... More
