I love this place. Everything is fantastic. The sauce is so good I have ordered it online and had it shipped! The sauce is has a slightly sweeter brown sugar taste. But it is more vinegar based than tomato. Which i love. You have to stop in!

First introduced to Pierce's a long time ago by the locals. Great BBQ if you like BBQ. It is served in the traditional "southern style". You can get the cole slaw on top of the BBQ or on the side if you want. I always buy a jar of sauce to bring home to put on our own here at... More

My wife and I love BBQ and we're excited to stumble upon this place by chance. The food was delicious and the service was great. We enjoyed the pork, beef brisket, and the ribs. Hush puppies were great (I'm a sucker for good hush puppies.)

My ten year old's name is Pierce. We passed by and knew we had to visit while in Williamsburg. We are all glad we did. Their signature pulled pork was excellent. The slaw and hush puppies were very good. The french fries were basic wrinkle cut fries and the serving was very generous. The very nice young woman at the... More

We have lived in Williamsburg just more than two years and finally made it to Pierce's. I met a family member for dinner and it was good. I had the half-chicken dinner. The menu says chicken barbecue, but does not specify that it can be whole or shredded. I asked and was told that I could order half of a... More

Thanks for getting in touch. I am glad that you enjoyed your visit. I am going to definitely let our front help know not to use the bar mop on the seats. Needless to say, this has been told to them before and will be repeated to them again. I thank you for letting me know. Come again soon. Andrea... More

When you imagine fast food, you think of the garbage McDonald's serves. When I think of fast food, I think of Peirce's, and the best bbq I've ever had. You can get your pulled bbq sandwich in minutes, allowing you to go even when you are on a tight schedule. A little out of the way, but totally worth the... More

We have been coming to Williamsburg for 20 years on family vacations and Pierce's is our first and last stop. We always visit Pierce's as soon as we arrive and we make it our last stop before we leave to stock up on their barbeque sauce for home. This is the best barbeque you will ever experience. This is the... More

First timer's at Pierce's last night for dinner. Need's to work on Customer Service. We were ignored by a very tall young man as we stood in the line. We thought that he was looking at us, but he just stood there and never said anything. The other cashier looked down at the counter the entire time we were in... More

This is a fast food paradise. It is noisy, a less than sterol restaurant. It is packed, especially on a Sunday at noon. Noisy enough you can hardly hear yourself, let alone anyone with you. I have not eaten here in well over 20 years. That said, it was the best decision I have made since I married my wife.... More
