Great place to eat. Delicious bbq. Would definitely recommend this place. It was packed, and rightfully so.

Great pit stop on way to Busch Gardens. Kids meals and fabulous baby back ribs and pulled pork sandwiches. Great plastic drink cups as a souvenir. Appropriate picnic area. Plenty of parking - literally a few minutes from Busch Gardens. Solid meal.

To be fair, bbq is not my favorite food. However, the chicken was actually pretty good. The sides were outstanding - excellent fries, hushpuppies, and mac and cheese. They had some of the best collards I've ever had. Sweet tea was delicious as well. Service...More

We have visited the area before, but wherever we’re going Pierce’s is always a stop. The pull pork is flavorful and tender, the coleslaw is delicious and the combination is perfect!

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.
