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.

Found the front page article in the Williamsburg magazine so added the address to the GPS. The parking lot was packed & the ordering line went fast. Plenty of cashiers who were knowledgeable of the menu board. We chose pork & chicken dinners which came with my favorites fries, slaw & hush puppies! Soft drinks available. Able to dine inside & plenty of picnic tables outside! The lawn is very clean as is the inside. Best of Williamsburg dining & recommend A+.

We come here every time we are in the area. The prices are fair, food is delicious, and there is never an extended wait. Today the place was very busy. My husband was in and out in 5 minutes with enough food for our family of 5. We always get coleslaw, ribs, brisket, and hush puppies. Yum. I wish they had corn soufflé on the menu, but that’s the only “complaint”.

We were glad to have stopped by Pierce’s while on the way home. The pulled pork sandwiches that we ordered was pleasing and enjoyable. We found them to be as consistently good as in prior visits to Pierce’s.

Have always loved their BBQ. Been coming since the 70s. Get a quart, get some sauce, get some slaw and some buns (at Walmart around the corner or buy them from Pierce's), take it home and enjoy with a salad and a bottle of wine. Leftovers for the rest of the time you're here. You'll love it!

I visited this place over 10 years ago and still remember it as a good barbecue place. It’s still good. And inexpensive. But I admit ever since eating at barbecues in Austin, I’ve realized this is not as good as Texas. But since this is clearly not Austin, who am I to complain?
