The evening we arrived in Williamsburg our hotel recommended Pierce's for dinner. We were not disappointed. The BBQ was delicious. It is a vinegar style BBQ sauce. I loved the hot BBQ sauce. The Brunswick stew was definitely not what we're used to being from...More

We choose this spot based on other reviews that stated this establishment was allergy friendly. We made sure to get there just before 5 pm. Sadly they had run out of the corn on the cob. The staff was very accommodating with the gluten and...More

There's no place quite like this. People used to hop the fence on the interstate to get here. The only thing that has changed in the last forty years I've been coming here is that you no longer get a cookie with the JC Special....More

I have been going to Pierce's since I was very young, when it was a walk up window for service. The BBQ has always been delicious and the sides are very tasty. I know others that have gotten some of the other items on the...More

Driving to the family reunion in Williamsburg, we of course knew about Pierces from living nearby, but had to include family from Seattle and NYC. It was so great we went back the following day. Typical lines, but such a competent crew, and leadership it...More

It's a bit tricky to get to, but once there, you will not be disappointed! I've been going since the 80s. I get the jumbo sandwich (only .30 more) with slaw. My honey gets the beef brisket sandwich. Their fries are the old timey crinkley...More

Vegans go away. A meat lovers paradise! I grabbed my kids for Sunday dinner after a few hours at the nearby water park. We ordered chicken fingers for the kids, a pork sandwich special for me, and a chicken sandwich special for the husband. They...More

The food here is just delicious. We brought some home with us in the cooler. It's a destination for us whenever we are traveling nearby. Just can't say enough about the food. This is "roughing it"--no plates and plastic utensils. This place is utilitarian and...More

After a fun day at Water Country we were hungry and looking for something different. We found this place on a map we got at the welcome center. The food was awesome! The ribs fell off the bone, pulled pork/chicken was moist, fries were crunchy...More

So disappointing. Maybe we had higher expectations because of the many great reviews but our experience was a disappointment. The sandwiches are small - definitely not the overflowing, sauce dripping, messy masterpieces we enjoyed in North Carolina. The flavor was okay but honestly not much...More
