Got Take out from here and the whole family loved it. They don't go light on the portions and we had enough for leftovers (so a good price for two meals for a family of four). It is just down the road from the Great Wolf Lodge and I would recommend hitting it.

True to the name, everything seems to be BBQ, even the fried fish tastes of BBQ sauce!. Service was very fast, and the crew was willing to accomodate us even though we showed up just a few minutes before closing time. if in doubt between the fish, the chicken or the pork: get the pork. Servings are generous: our group... More

Pierce's is my favorite BBQ joint in Tidewater. I've eaten BBQ all over the south and this place is in my top five. This is not carolina style BBQ, it's more of a Tennessee/Georgia deeper style. Whatever style, it's good!

Great barbecue, great selection and always tasty whether you want pulled pork which is their specialty, chicken or beef you will get your moneys worth. Servings are large and service is always friendly and fast. You may have to wait for a table but usually not for long. I never miss it when I am close by

On any given Saturday, even on a cold February day, this place is busier than ever. We had a group of five, so we had to split up into two groups to eat. Our order was processed quickly and was correct too (always a bonus). Hands down this is the best BBQ and I keep coming back every chance I... More

I first got Pierces Pit in 1990. When I was recently in Virginia I made a point to swing by again. Just as I remembered. SO tasty. So good. Tangy BarBQue sauce. Place is always busy so make time. Worth the drive.

This was recommended by many locals and it was a great stop. Has been there in the same spot and owned by the same family for a long time. Good amount of food for the price and you can't go wrong with any choices. Removed from the high traffic areas near downtown and William & Mary but this should be... More

We ordered two family meals and a brisket. Every single thing we ate was delicious from the baked beans to the brownies! The BBQ was so tasty you didn't even need to include the tasty sauce that came with it. The baked beans were better than I have ever eaten. They had pieces of pork and hotdog in it. I... More

It's not on the commercial strip and instead located in a quiet, out of the way area. The food was delicious and reasonably priced. You order at the counter, and then you can eat on site or take it home. We stayed and ate there at a table that afforded a nice view. I had the special that was a... More
