We loved the BBQ and the sides at Pierce's! We had 5 different meals and no one had anything they didn't like! The only reason I gave 4 stars instead of 5 is the lack of sauce options. I am not a fan of the...More

Growing up in VA, I’ve always annoyed a visit to Stuckey’s when traveling 64. And they still don’t disappoint! Asked about gluten free options, and was handed a sheet listing ALL allergens, which is rare, but most appreciated!! Enjoyed their shredded bbq chicken, slaw, and...More

Let me start by saying barbecue is very subjective so I tend to review bbq places on ambience as much as food. I loved Pierce’s for the energy of the place. It’s huge and busy and everyone — guests and staff alike — were friendly...More

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.
