Pierce’s Pitt Bar-b-que, Williamsburg VA

Pierce’s Pitt Bar-B-Que has been a Williamsburg institution for over 30 years. We used to come here for the barbecue when it was a walk- up window only, with a steaming barbecue pitt out back, a soda machine for drinks, picnic tables, and a gravel parking lot. Things have changed a bit, but Pierce’s continues to be a roadside attraction with excellent barbecue, albeit now with a full- fledged restaurant, indoor tables, and even a paved parking lot, not to mention the expanded barbecue pitt out back. With it’s bright yellow paint with orange trim, you cannot miss it and you won’t want to once you’ve tasted their tender, spicy barbecue sandwich. The Jumbo with coleslaw is a must, as is the hush puppies, the fries, and the crispy onion rings. If you are not in the mood for barbecue, try the cheeseburger (excellent!) or the kid’s chicken fingers (yum!). Or, if the weather is cold and you need some hot food to warm you up, try the Brunswick Stew or the macaroni and cheese. Whatever you choose, Pierce’s is a must-do stop if you are anywhere near!

The Trellis, Williamsburg VA

The Trellis has been a Williamsburg tradition for over 30 years. Located on historic Duke of Gloucester Street with its well dressed windows filled with beautifully set tables, this has long been the place to go for special occasions. It is the place to go for innovative meals featuring local ingredients, like the New England Clam Chowder made with Littleneck Clams, or the stuffed trout or the red pepper soup. It is also the place to go for chocolate. The piece de resistance is Death By Chocolate, featuring seven layers of wonderfully decadent chocolate, from the slightly crispy chocolate meringue to the chocolate mousse to the rich, dark ganache that surrounds it all, this is the chocolate dessert that you will savor and remember and come back to again and again whenever you are in Williamsburg.
