Classic Barbecue with great service. Love the additional picnic tables with everything going on.

One of the best around
Pierce's is one of my favorite BBQ places. It's still going strong even with Covid, it's just not as crowded, which is a good thing. The dining room is pretty much closed, but they have increased the number of picnic tables outside. We had great...BBQ, sitting outside on a beautiful day.More ... read more

First time visitors - won't be the last
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 quest ... read more

I have been going to Pierce's for over 20 years when traveling through the area. Today was the 1st time trying the brisket. I was very impressed. Haven't had brisket that good since Tx.

Always good! Will continue to go back!

Great food. Kinda a fast food vibe, but the food makes up for it. Outside dining also if the weather is decent.

This place is really good!  I got the pulled chicken sandwich with coleslaw and my husband got the pulled pork.  It was amazing.  The sauce is so good we bought a bottle to take home.  Ample seating outside for those not wanting to risk indoor dining (which was limited...due to safety measures) .

Great food and I loved that they had outdoor seating. Everyone was wearing a mask and many were wearing gloves. The brisket is the best I've ever had, this is the 3rd time I come here in the past two years and the quality is consistent. The chicken was good but a little dry. My favorite is the brisket with green beans.

The environment was casual & friendly. They were very busy but food came out quickly- excellent quality & served hot! We got pork bbq sandwiches & 1/2 smoked chicken-both were delicious-as well as great mac & cheese, French fries & hush puppies. I would definitely recommend this spot to all of my bbq fan friends.

When you know you know! We've patronized this spot for over 25 years! Always a family favorite and our go to spot after a day of shopping at the outlets or when we have a taste for some amazing BBQ!

Hard to find a place that makes good greens. This place is worth driving past other places to get there.
Jacob Bechtel via - Oct 11, 2020
This place is delicious! It was PACKED, even though it's 2 to 3 miles off of the highway or main roads. Lots of outdoor seating. Richmond and Williamsburg areas have lots of BBQ places but this is one of the tastiest!

Excellent Mexican food
This place was in the hotel we were using for a long weekend. (Best western). Not feeling like going out after a long day, we tried it, not expecting much. Couldn’t have been more wrong. The food was excellent for both of us. I had...a seafood special burrito and it was not only great, but very filling. It included a white sauce that ... read more

Pierce's was delicious!! I had a pulled pork sandwich with ther bbq sauce that seemed to have a hint of apple!! I was pleasantly surprised. Efficient service, indoor and outdoor seating... we chose to eat outside. It is busy so be prepared to wait but it is absolutely worth it!

I met my parents here to grab takeout and have a picnic somewhere as I'm still not eating at places indoor or outdoor. We know this place gets busy so we got there around 11:15 and there weren't many people. My parents were delayed a bit so I told them I'd go in and order the food. SERIOUSLY IMPRESSED with the COVID precautions. Ther ... read more

Great BBQ.....
No trip to Williamsburg is complete until a visit is made to Pierce’s. I’ve been a customer for twenty years and still remember the days that included locations in Richmond and in Waterside. Great food and service with very reasonable prices. You will not be...disappointed and make your plans to go if you’re in the area!!!!More ... read more

Sooo good! Pulled pork sandwich with coleslaw on it is a must. Delicious beans, collards & cole slaw. You can't go wrong!

Don't sleep on their cheeseburger. I like the BBQ, maybe not as much as my wife does but their burgers are pretty darn good. Also love the whole chicken.
Javier Fuentes via - Sep 29, 2020
Great place that clearly had a feeling they were going to be something special...when you look at all the old photos. The BBQ is really good, the sides are fantastic. Generally speaking the staff is over the top, polite and helpfull. Always worth the stop!

The best place for bbq hands down!!

Be prepared to wait in line as this is the place to get a barbecue sandwich and most people from the area know it. Bbq sauce has a nice apple tang to it that mixes well.

So this place was super yummy. My burnt ends were not as splendid as I thought but they also sat under a heat lamp for who knows how long. They may be better right out the smoker earlier in the day. :) Requested a refund from mgr and was expeditiously serviced by supervisor. Other than that very tasty being that there aren't too many ... read more

You can always tell when a restaurant is really good by how many locals are there. This place was very busy! It took us a little bit to figure out what to do, but once we ordered and found a seat, the adventure began! Great food! We love BBQ!
