I've been eating at Pierce's since the late 1980's and their pulled pork BBQ sandwich is still outstanding: a generous portion of meat paired with a delicious sauce. Yum. Go with the hush puppies for your side, you won't be disappointed (the crinkle-cut French fries...More

Overall, it is really good. The prices are reasonable, and the best time to come are outside lunch and dinner hours, as it can get packed.

We cook over hickory and white oak. Our pork has a light smoke flavor. Hope that helps!

Description
Since 1971, people have enjoyed coming to Pierce's Pitt for delicious, hickory-smoked, Tennessee-style Bar-B-Que made with "Doc" Pierce's Original Bar-B-Que Sauce. It all started when Julius C. (Doc) Pierce set out from Flat Creek, Tennessee for Virginia with his family and their prized bar-b-que sauce recipe. Once there, he settled in Williamsburg and opened Pierce's Pitt. The rest, as they say, is history. Now, wherever there's good times, good laughs and good eatin', Pierce's is often part of it. Whether it's in our restaurant, at a party or event we've catered, or when someone has bar-b-qued at home using "Doc" Pierce's Original Bar-B-Que Sauce. It's more than great food ... it's a great tradition ... one that all our customers enjoy. In fact, we like to think it's made Virginia a better place to live and visit.
