Good food, small amounts and over prized

The pulled pork is the best, the rack of ribs have been dry the last couple of times. The best value is the BB q whole chicken. I think over priced for amount you get. I would not go back.

We were surprised at how good Pierce's was. We had a variety of menus items and everything was very good. The prices are good, the portions are generous, the staff are very friendly and we had no complaints. It's very casual but most BBQ places are. It was clearly where the locals eat, and for good reason.

Such great BBQ! Very popular/busy place! Huge fries and not on the beaten path, delicious and worth every minute! You won't be disappointed!

I have visited Pierce's for multiple occasions over the years: either when we are just down the street at GWL or driving through the area as a lunch and/or dinner stop. I first heard of Pierce's from some co-workers (I live and work over 3 hours away) and they told me that if I am ever going through Williamsburg, I... More

Reasonable and huge servings. Order the special that includes fries which you can substitute onion rings, a drink and a cookie of your choice for a little over $8. Always busy and crowded, so sometimes hard to find a table. If the weather is nice, enjoy a picnic table outside.

Even though I'm a local, a trip to Pierce's is like a vacation treat! It is delicious no matter where you are from! Friendly staff, clean restaurant, and excellent ice tea.

Really is some of the best barbecue ever, sometimes the wait can be a little long. It is definitely worth going out of your way to taste some of this wonderful barbecue.

Virginia has always taken a back seat in the barbecue arena, North Carolina is the East Coast king. But this old family run restaurant has pumped out quality cue to hordes of locals and tourists from nearby Williamsburg. Good waitstaff, fine food and a pleasant place to get some cue.

I personally like sweet BBQ sauce so I was very disappointed in the taste of my oulled pork. Food is on a normal sized hamburger bun and sauce is nothing special if you've had southern southern BBQ. Fries while large in serving siZe and hot were over cooked. Sweet tea was fantastic. Seating is open and it is constantly crowded.... More
