We visited here on 8/16/14. Three of us ordered the pulled pork, one of us had ordered the chicken fingers platter. First and foremost, this is not a fancy schmancy restaurant, it is a low key, casual dining experience and there is absolutely nothing wrong with that. We were looking for a place exactly like this, very low key and... More

Found this BBQ place by googling Diners, Drive-ins and Dives sites. Placed our order at the counter and waited a few minutes for it. Took our meals outside to eat on the picnic tables with umbrellas. Very good BBQ sauce, we even bought some bottle to bring home to NJ with us.

This place is a genuine mom and pop BBQ place. Not one of those chains that franchise themselves out and are more interested in putting varieties of sauces on store shelves across the country. I went there with my family after seeing this place mentioned in a national publication about some of the best BBQ across the country and conveniently... More

You order food fast food style. You can eat in the restaurant or head out to a picnic table. Outside eating is great for families. BBQ chicken is mildly flavored. BBQ pork was spicy. Macaroni and cheese was not good at all. Overall cheap and quick.

We enjoyed the BBQ. The place was super busy so it took awhile to get our order. The kids orders were filled incorrectly but they were quick to fix the issue. The BBQ sauce was not the kind I usually like but my husband liked it fine. We ate the sampler with the pork shank, pork, chicken, cole slaw, mashed... More

Pierce's BBQ in Williamsburg is a must stop by restaurant. I have been eating at Pierce's for as long as I can remember. I like Eastern Carolina BBQ best of all, but Pierce's is still some of the best BBQ around. The meat is smoked on site daily to ensure freshness. Even during the lunch rush we were able to... More

Self-service barbecue restaurant serves pork or chicken barbecue off the bone, onion rings, fries, hush puppies, and slaw, and a wide range of soft drinks. Incredibly delicious and very popular. You'll have to line up to place your order and wait for your number to be called, but it moves quickly.

The BQ I ever had. Great sandwiches, good French fries. Loved the cookie. Have been to Williamsburg many and have heard Pierce's was the best BBQ. This was the 1st time I stopped there. Will make sure to have dinner or lunch during my next visit to Williamsburg.
