BBQ is wonderful. Little pricey but great food. Off the beaten path so look for signs. Always stop at Pierce's when in Williamsburg

My family and I stopped in for lunch and waited 25 minutes for food and after a long standing we finally found a table in the corner next to the drink machines and we barely had any room. For 5 people our bill was $68. We waited for our order number to be called for quite awhile. Finally I went... More

Best pulled pork sandwich I've had in a while and my wife loved her pulled chicken sandwich just as much. We brought some BBQ and Hot sauces for our boys back home.

Stopped in on the way to Virginia Beach when my partner said she had stopped there years ago. The visitor center also recommended it and it turned out to be a good recommendation. In fact we liked it so well we stopped again on our way back. It is a take out place with tables inside and out. Order at... More

I have been going to Pierce's since the late 70's. This is one local BBQ place you will not want to miss. Great food, ample parking, and be prepared to wait a bit as this place is always packed.

Pierce's is a very busy and reasonably priced place to eat. BBQ is good and fast. Dessert is wonderful also.
