Always exceptional food and service. Even more so in a pandemic!  One way in. One way out. They did allow us to use the restrooms. Very organized. Plenty of picnic tables set up at a distance. A must stop on the way to OBX!

Safety was first, thank you. The food was great. The picnic area was very nice.

Ordered JC Special. Portions large enough for sharing. Ordered online and minimum wait time. Loved seeing an established business still doing well.

Great pick up set up yesterday. Order was perfect and I really appreciated the safe environment you set up for pick up with your employees wearing masks. Very sorry they to be exposed to the few people who walked up to them without masks. I would support no mask, no service at your restaurant. I'll be back.

Best BBQ in Virginia, service is fantastic! No wonder customers have even landed helicopters to get this awesome BBQ!
Rick Chisholm via - May 3, 2020
This is the best BBQ I've ever had! My family and I frequently drive an hour each way to get Pierce's and it's always worth the trip.

Was riding from Richmond to Newport Mews and decided to stop here. Service was fast and friendly and the food was delicious! I ordered the pork bbq sandwich combo. The only reason they didn't get 5 stars is because the fries didn't have a drop of any seasoning and they weren't fully cooked. The baked beans was very delicious! I'll be ... read more

Third Time is the Charm on Delivery. Great BBQ
The pandemic meant no in-house dining. So deliveries were well under expected time for the 1st out of 3 times. Love the pulled chicken platter. Hope for a large Onion Rings selection in the future.

Great burgers for sure but this review isn’t just about the burgers. I ordered from, Uber Eats and let me tell you... hands down these folks wrapped (packaged) my food so tight that there was NO WAY anyone could mess in it between the restaurant! I VERY VERY much appreciate that. Quality food made by quality people. Thank you!!
Antoinette Wolf via - Apr 16, 2020
Fantastic food and fantastic memories. We always go here during our stay in Williamsburg every year and we're never dissapointed. The meat is perfection, with great sauces and seasonings and you can really tell the wood and care. The fries are a little thick and unseasoned for some people's liking's, but that's just preference.

Their food is fantastic. We have been eating there for 15 years and every time their food is as fantastic as before. Try the pork shanks. Takes a little more time for your order but worth the wait. We went in one time for the shanks and they were gone. Someone arrived early and purchased every one of them!
Jan K. via - Apr 12, 2020
Have been a huge fan of Pierce's . My dad bought me here as a child on our trips to Buckroe and Va is the place to get excellent food and relax. Very accommodating and pleasant . I highly recommend. I just wish you guys would open a place in Chesterfield. Please keep up the great work and service. You have trained the sta ... read more

While we have been homebound we have been making an effort to order take out and support local businesses during this weird period we are all experiencing.  We decided to order from Pierce's even though it's a little further out but it was definitely worth the drive.  We ordered the pulled chicken sandwich and the brisket sandwich wh ... read more

We stop here going to the outer banks. It's a tradition. Our family loves the pulled pork, hush puppies, slaw, sweet potatoe fries and everything we've tried.

OMG! If you can order them, get the brisket burnt ends. The shop said they run out around lunchtime but you can order in the morning and they'll hold them for you.

So much BBQ flavor and so tender. One order of about 8 oz. cost about $14 but so worth it since it's all meat and no bone. Also, just the right amount of fat. Super

Restaurant was very clean. Service was quick and friendly. Daughter had chicken finger basket, which she enjoyed. I had fried catfish basket, in which unfortunately, the french fries almost obscured the 2 fried fish fillets. Too many fries and ok fish. I will stick to pulled pork sandwich next time, which is always good.

Saloon special...the hamburger, fries and beverage are sooooo good. You get a huge amount of fries, crispy without and deliciously fluffy within. There is no option to select a temperature for your hamburger but worry not, while not pink at all, its flavor is amazing. Refill your beverage as much as you like.
Julia Mulherin via - Mar 10, 2020
Wow, I just can't find enough to say about this amazing place, everything on Pierce's menu is the best food that I have ever had.

When you are in the area and you think old school pit smoked meats, this is what comes to mind. They have been around for a long time, and when you take the first bite, you'll know why they have been. The portions are large and always fresh. And you need to get there before the lunch crowd, or the dinner crowd, or just get there. It ... read more

I’d last visited Pierce’s about 20 years ago. Most of what I’d remembered was the same (I.e., just as good as ever). Ribs-outstanding. Pulled pork and pulled chicken-sweeter than I remembered but really good. Cole slaw and collards-great. Prices-OK, they’ve gone up in the past...More ... read more

If you're in the mood for some good tasting bbq in Williamsburg, Va. give Pierce a try.  This would be my third visit to Pierce.  Each visit has never failed in the following:

1.  Cleanliness of the dining area
2.  Expedient service
3.  Affordable meal combos or ala carte
4.  Great tasting bbq - pork, beef, or chicken

We only tried the burnt ends and it was soooooo good. I have heard how tasty burnt ends are but I have never been to restaurant that offers it. By the way it is best to order it ahead of time.
