Yep, it's a good BBQ
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 ... read more

My brother visited from Philly recently and said while he was here he wanted to make a trip up to Pierce's BBQ. He's lived in Philly for 15 years and it's been at least a decade since I've been to Pierce's myself. So I took a day off, which happened to be a Friday, and off to Williamsburg we went. Upon arriving around 11:30am there ... read more

Food was wonderful. Service was amazing. One of the best days ever ever. Much Love.

I got the pulled pork platter with macaroni & cheese and collards It was delicious as always. However they do charge 50 cents per side if you don't get the fries and slaw that actually come with it. Sadly, they are sticklers for mask wearing. Will be so glad when Covid is behind us so that all restaurants can get back to normal.

A williamsburg classic! A saucy pork BBQ that's sweet with a tiny bit of heat, combined with their crispy fries is magical.

Nice Late Lunch
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 ... read more

The best judge of how good a restaurant is may be how badly I want to go back. Fortunately for my health, Pierce's is a couple hours away! But it's likely to become a mainstay for us in any trip we make to the historic triangle. Why? Fantastic food and friendly service. We've been there twice this year and I'm baffled as to how we've ... read more

The food was hot and fresh, as well as delicious. The best NC style pork bbq I've had outside of NC. We don't have many restaurants we like to return to when we visit Williamsburg, but we will definitely be back!

We visited the History Triangle and a friend recommended this restaurant - we're so glad she did! Delicious food at prices you can't beat! We ate there several times and the whole family enjoyed it.

We were recommended this place for BBQ in the Williamsburg area. Covid precautions are in place, lots of outdoor dining, however I don't know how much it's monitored out there. They are wood picnic tables so probably hard to clean, and are set pretty far away from the restaurant. Staff wasn't overly friendly and it is counter orderin ... read more

I love Pierces BBQ ... A nice variety of food ... I could eat it every day and not get tired of it ... I wish the portions were a wee bit bigger and maybe change the bun they use to something a little more tasty ... Collards were tender and tasty ... Love the string beans too ... Mac and cheese yummy ... Only once was it a bit dry ..

Wow, what a great surprise! We ate here multiple times during our Great Wolf Lodge stay! Their on-line system, super easy to use and efficient!

I could pick any restaurant today for my birthday and I chose Pierce's!  It did not disappoint!  The ribs were the best, the fries were crispy, the hush puppies were sweet and the banana pudding was delicious!  I love Pierce's and go there every chance I get. But I am not the only won who loves their food. Ride by there any Saturday.

Lunch on way home from OBX
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.
gbg245 via - Oct 26, 2020
Amongst us, we had pulled chicken, pulled pork, brisket, and ribs. All the meats were very lean and gently smoked. The sauce, served on the side, was a tomato vinegar based sauce; great taste with a nice bite. Sides were fries (chunky crinkle cut), cole slaw (chopped, with a nice toothiness), collards, and hush puppies. Oh, there w ... read more

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
