The food tasted wonderful and really satisfied our large family for dinner one night during our stay at a certain waterslide-intensive hotel nearby. 🐺 Even my little picky ones who usually avoid meat gobbled up the pork. The beans were particularly good. Everything was good...More

Please, Pierces staff, fans, etc., understand I preface this commentary by noting that literally tens if not hundreds of thousands of people through multiple decades have been thrilled here. We were not two of them. Was it the Mothers Day/Grad weekend crowd? Doubtful, they have...More

Pierce's definitely has some of the best barbecue I've ever had. The problem is that everybody knows it's great so it's always super crowded. It's hard to find a parking spot and a table once you get your food. They do a great job of...More

Thanks for coming to see us and thanks for your kind words! Mr. Pierce did lower the price when the cookie was no longer available. He was listening to customer complaints about them and decided to not include them in the Specials.

I'm a resident of Williamsburg and I don't go anywhere else for barbecue. Consistently good food, never fails to please. When the fires are going in the morning the smoke blows across Route 64 and more than once we have stuck our faces out like...More

Visited here years ago, and things haven't changed (and that's a good thing). You get good, reliable BBQ here, fast service and good portions. Much better that the chain BBQs in the area.

This is good barbecue. Picking on nicely smoked chicken, tender meaty ribs, pulled pork and pulled chicken stuffed into buns with a tangy sauce makes for an excellent barbecue meal. We had one of the best barbecue dinners we have had since we moved from...More

We were looking for a good BBQ restaurant and we found it here! Food was EXCELLENT and at a good price. We went early for dinner and never saw a slow down in diners coming in - and could see why. Loved this place.

Pierce's was recommended by a friend. It's off the beaten path for tourists, but by the full parking lot, you can tell it's a favorite of the locals. You have to go up to the counter and order your food and well as pick it...More
