This place was so yummy. The prices were Great, and fit perfectly in our budget. Sandwiches were perfect size and super filling. Unique BBQ flavor. Fries were more on the dry bland side.

This is a repeat eat for us when we come to Williamsburg. The service, sauces and the overall ambiance is touristy and loud. The food is busy and the flavors smokey and fresh. The rapid turnover of food is amazing. The patrons appear to know their fix and eat as if this is their regular spot. Our ribs, pulled pork,... More

The BBQ is awesome. Pork shanks were crazy good. The staff was friendly and knowledgeable. Apparently, the burnt ends are unreal. Call them at 10 AM and ask about the burnt ends...they usually sell out by 11 AM. BBQ hot sauce is really good. Collards were very well prepared. We'll be back!!!!

It's a tradition for my kids to hit up Pierce's BBQ after each stay at Great Wolf Lodge, which is just down the street. In theory, this place is great. Fresh, bbq, al the sides. The ONLY problem I have with Pierce's is the sauce. I love all bbq, so I'm not a purist in that respect. NC vinegar bbq,... More

Thanks for sharing your opinion about the barbecue sauce. We have made it the same way for over 45 years. I can tell you that if the sauce is not shaken properly before being added to the meat, any of the ingredients can overpower the other. I appreciate the fact that you are interested enough in our business to let... More

Small but great food! BBQ is terrific here! When arriving, we had one of our family members grab a table to make sure we had a place to sit because it is very busy thanks to the delicious meals, but watching the traffic in and out, it probably wasn't necessary since tables opened quickly. Staff was friendly and it was... More

This place was hopping! We came because of the great reviews. We enjoyed our dinner but, I wouldn't say it was the best BBQ we have ever had in our travels. Hubby and I split a Combo meal, son had a side salad and a side of mac&cheese (which was delicious. We also got a side of collards (ok) and... More

Their barbecue sauce is unique. Not everyone's "cup of tea", but I like it. Stick to the pulled pork-the other dishes are not that good. It can get really crowded during the summer especially, and can be tricky to find for those not familiar with the area, as it is between two I-64 exits. One complaint-since they started serving Pepsi,... More

Our Family of 5 ate for under $60 and had more than enough of delicious BBQ. Had kids friendly meals in both adult & kids portions which help when you have growing teens. Tasty food in a very casual environment. Well worth a trip if you are in the Williamsburg area. Place was packed on a Saturday night in February... More

The food there is pretty good. So much so that you have to stalk tables that are leaving to get a table. In fairness, we were there at the height of lunch time. And a packed house is a sign of good food. My husband and I both had the same sandwich which was a pulled BBQ on hoggie roll... More
