We just had to give this place a try, since we heard so much raving reviews and recommendations about this long time place for having Barbeque Entrees. We were told that this is the best Barbeque on the Planet, and that everyone stops at this place, and it is very popular. So, we finally stopped here to check it all... More

Pierce's BBQ is good. It is a favorite place for many locals and does a brisk carry-out trade, but my impression is that it's very like your average fast food place. All orders are delivered over the counter in carry-out boxes placed into plastic bags. On busy days, there is a steady amplified call for pick ups..."number 61, your order... More

We are what we are. We, at one time, did have trays for dine in but found that due to volume of business we needed to just go with bags. We have been extremely fortunate to build a business that is not fast food but quick service. This, of course, means plastic and convenience. We hope that you understand our... More

Every time we come to Williamsburg we HAVE to visit this hometown bbq restaurant! The bbq isn't a typical "North Carolina" bbq, as it's super tangy, but paired with the coleslaw and steamed bun, it's good. Other options are served as well, and my favorite is their cheeseburger. Roasted chicken and the typical southern sides complete the menu. We have... More

Thought wouldd get a smoky pitt flavored bbq. All we could taste was cinnamon. Pulled pork sweet with cinnamon. Brunswick stew more cinnamon. We liked the hush puppies. Everything below average. Was over crowded and very loud and you had to rush to grab a table.

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
