Pulled pork at its best. You can smell the pork in the smokers as you drive to the restaurant. Setting is very simple and casual. Food is outstanding. Everything is fresh, served hot an there is plenty of it. A must stop. Its out of the way but well worth the ride.

Ordered to go! We ordered individual sides and a pint of BBQ with the rolls (buns) to go. We had plenty for a family of four and BBQ left over. The containers of BBQ sauce you can get to go to accommodate your family.

While it's not on a par with NC Bar-B-Q (nothing is), this is an OK place to ear "Q"... if you don't mind being in a mob. Sauces are ordinary. Fries were ordinary. Actually, I'm not sure why this place is so crowded and folks rave so. It's good, but not that good. Maybe there's no competition.

Our family was in Williamsburg for the New Years weekend. We were looking for something local that was good food, fast, and a good value. This restaurant checked all the boxes. Their menu has good variety and great choices for kids. It was quick to get the food and it was really good. We went back a second time to... More

Stopped for lunch after visiting the Yankee Candle store in Williamsburg. Place was very busy. Once we ordered, received our food in about 15 minutes. Pulled pork sandwich was very good. I was not impressed with a side order of Bake beans.

We have been going to Pierces for 35 years and it is still as good as ever. We moved away from the area 20 years ago and whenever we are back, we have to get their BBQ. It is worth the effort to get there and it is almost always packed, but the service is great. They have lots of... More

There is much to do and see around Williamsburg, but this should be your main reason for visiting this town. I remember it from my younger days when it was much smaller, but in the same location. Word of mouth must work because you need a GPS to find it if you aren't a local. Do yourself a favor and... More

We came here at 6:30 and found the place absolutely packed. Came back an hour later and found seating. All the food was very good (even if the sauce was a tad too sweet). With good prices, this is a good choice.

Expecting Tennessee BBQ, the full rack of ribs was small and not evenly sauced. Hush puppies were not great, too dry for my taste. Considering that it was cafeteria style, prices were not inexpensive. Kinda disappointed with my meal having read other people's comments.
