Really good food, really fast

Like I've mentioned in many of my other reviews, if a restaurant has been open over 40 years, they must have great food. If you don't like the food, it's probably more your taste preference and not bad food. This is especially relevant in BBQ. Some people like tomato based sauces, others vinegar... read more

Omg..we were traveling from OBX to DC, by way of Richmond. I said let's STP at Pierces BBQ in Williamsburg, va. It's a kwick exit off/on. We had our little dog so we ate outside. It is better than the NC BBQ. Sweet tea, sandwiches, soo good. They are great folks & the food is always consistently Great.

Going to Pierce's Barbecue is like a religious experience for many people when they visit Williamsburg. I was no different. I think I stumbled upon Pierce's the first year they were open as I made my annual trek from Charlottesville to the beach some 40+ years ago. Over the years, whenever I came back to Virginia, i would go out... More

We decided to have dinner here at the recommendation of a couple we talked to while visiting Merchants Square. They often make day trips to Williamsburg and Pierce's was a place they always dined at when in town. We found the address and used our GPS to locate the barbecue restaurant. The building is similar in style to many of... More

Simple, good and not too expensive. Good pulled pork sandwich, sauce has low heat, slaw to had to the top with a pile of french fries. About 8.95 and worth it. Very casual. I do like Alamo BBQ better but its in Richmond about an hour up the road.

Love this place. Been coming here for over 25 years, back when it was just a walk-up window. I try to stop in anytime I'm in Williamsburg. It's the one restaurant I tell folks is a "must do!" when in the area. Get the pulled pork dinner, with fries and hush puppies. Yum! Also pick up a bottle of their... More

Probably the best BBQ sandwich I ever had ! There was four of us & we each had something different. Spareribs were tender & meaty. Fries were hot & crisp. Coleslaw was sweet & tasty. It was all good. The price was very reasonable & the service friendly and quick. It came recommended by the locals and we were not... More

We decided to go for an evening drive & ended up at Pierce's...so glad we did! We both had the 5 ounce bbq sandwich with coleslaw, fries, cookie & beverage. It was sooooo delicious! Loved the ice tea! The staff was friendly & service was great even though the place was packed! We will go back often!
