Taste, texture and quantity. We eat here often. Get the "J C Special" - BBQ sandwich, fries and drink. Don't forget the coleslaw on the sandwich. They add just enough sauce to the meat. Very tasty.

Another day of walking, another good meal was had at this unpretentious eatery not far from Colonial Williamsburg. The Chicken, ribs and fries were a real treat.

It was recommended by a local and while the food (BBQ) was good, it is definitely a no frills place. Mostly self-serve and very busy, you have to work hard for a table, a drink, condiments, etc. The servings were very good and the smoked...More

This business started as a walk up back in 1971. Even though we have added on through the years, the no frills attitude has prevailed! Thanks for stopping by.

Pulled pork had no smoke flavor and was already mixed in BBQ sauce when served. I think pulled pork should be flavored by smoke and need little to no sauce. My sons got cheese burgers they looked big and the kids liked them. My wife...More

Locals know to get there before noon because by then there could be a line out the door. This no frills, but immaculately kept shop is home to the region’s best.

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.
