We were glad to have stopped by Pierce’s while on the way home. The pulled pork sandwiches that we ordered was pleasing and enjoyable. We found them to be as consistently good as in prior visits to Pierce’s.

Have always loved their BBQ. Been coming since the 70s. Get a quart, get some sauce, get some slaw and some buns (at Walmart around the corner or buy them from Pierce's), take it home and enjoy with a salad and a bottle of wine....Leftovers for the rest of the time you're here. You'll love it!More

I visited this place over 10 years ago and still remember it as a good barbecue place. It’s still good. And inexpensive. But I admit ever since eating at barbecues in Austin, I’ve realized this is not as good as Texas. But since this is...clearly not Austin, who am I to complain?More

I had met a friend from college here. He said he always stops when going from Richmond to Virginia Beach. His favorite. So, wife and I visited on our own. She had the regular pork sandwich while I had the special (bigger). I enjoyed my...onion rings, but I prefer beer battered. Not their fault. Sodas were huge (24 oz.) which I don't think we needed. She liked her potato salad very much. Prices were fair. I can see why this place gets a good crowd. Locals, tourists, and passers-by. It's only a few minutes off of I-64.More

This was our 3rd trip to Pierce's though it had been a few years, but it was good to see that the food was still good and reasonably priced. My jumbo pork sandwich was very good as was the BBQ sauce. My wife liked her...smokehouse chicken sandwich and the fries were better than I had remembered. The restaurant was very Covid safe and though it wasn't busy on this late afternoon, I had forgotten how busy it can be by the size of the parking lot and all the picnic tables outside. Look forward to a return visit.More

Happened to be in town and wanted something different to eat and what a big surprise. I placed a to-go order for the family and by the time I got there the order was ready in five minutes. The staff was great and knowledgeable, they...told me about the place being open for 50 years and I can see why with the great taste and variety of food to choose from.More

Great pork bbq (chopped) and sauce. Most crispy crinkle-cut fries. Great hush puppies. The pellet ice and diet Dr Pepper fountain soda make for the perfect meal. Service is fast and friendly.

Don’t believe what you read on line. I pulled in and parked and placed my online order for pickup and paid online. I patiently waited until the designated time that my food was to be ready. When I enter pierces they told me they don’t...even start fixing my order until I arrive. I am so angry right now for having to wait so long and for their misleading info. I have been coming here for over 3o years, has always been my favorite. Not so much after this experience.More

Sir, I am sorry for any inconvenience that may have been caused. In looking into the situation, I was told the pick up time is automatically set for one half hour after order is placed. This gives the customer time to get to the restaurant....More

We have been vacationing in Williamsburg every few years for 25+ years. We have never stopped at Pierce's Pitt BBQ. Shame on us! We got onion rings to enjoy in their outdoor picnic area. Delicious! And we got cold pulled pork and chicken along with...baked beans and cole slaw to go. The staff was very helpful in answering questions. Our order was ready quickly. We enjoyed everything! We just started a new tradition!More

We cook over hickory and white oak. Our pork has a light smoke flavor. Hope that helps!
