    Food blogger Jennifer of Not Your Momma's Cookie recommends Pierce's Pitt Bar-B-Que. "Pierce's has been serving tender pulled pork and chicken sandwiches, meaty ribs, and classic sides since 1971."

    One of only a handful of places that make true Virginia bbq. Pulled pork and ribs. Very nice outdoor seating

    Best pulled pork around!! Still do it the old fashioned way, way better than the rest. Have a friend grab a table and hold while ordering though!!

    My regular pitstop when driving through. Can't beat the pulled pork sandwiches. Don't forget the hush puppies & the sweet potato sticks

    The Hubby's fav place, always after OBX. Always pulled pork or chicken. Picnic tables on site in park like setting too. This is not an allergy enforcement, but tables are great. Near Great Wolf. Read more

    Pork - done right. Chicken's not bad either but the pulled pork or ribs are worth the drive!

    Lucky 2 find a parking space, even luckier to find a table, but luckiest if all to eat a jumbo BBQ sandwich!

    Get here before 12:30 to avoid the rush. As lines can be long. Not a big fan of the sweet potato sticks.

    They make the best Brunswick Stew but it's seasonal. Get it to go and freeze it.

    Succulent pulled pork, zippy zesty zing on white bread with a hint of smoke and cole slaw.

    They got rid of the pulled chicken and replaced it with a small chicken breast! Very disappointing. They need to bring it back or we won't be stopping every week on our way to Busch Gardens.

    Not that impressed with sides straight out of a can or the frozen foods section. They seem to be raking in the cash tho. Crowded for Friday mid afternoon.

    Not as good as it use to be...becoming a sort of touring trap. Portions are very small and prices are very high.

    Not the best in VA, I suppose it's all relative. Too vinegary for my taste. Buz is better. Sides are good though.
