I was there on 6/19/22 (father's day). I got the 2 meat platter which was brisket and pulled pork BBQ with poblano mac and cheese as a side. The brisket was good and flavorful but a little on the fatty side. The pulled pork was good and so was the poblano mac and cheese. Our waitress was very friendly.
Christopher Robinson via - Jun 21, 2022
Food was hot and good and the waitresses are friendly. Definitely recommend going to eat here.

Pretty Good BBQ Right Around The Corner From CW
Got the pulled pork platter that comes with a half pound of meat, two sides and some pickles. Pulled pork itself is pretty good but was a little dry, definitely need to spruce it up with any of the sauces they provide. Wasn't a huge fan of the cornbread but the mac and cheese and beans were very good. The fried brussels sprouts are a ... read more

BBQ LOVERS PASSION, stop in for great BBQ food. OMG, the wings and cheese fries were DYNAMITE. OCB wings are smoked and fried with the best sauces. You will order two or three servings, SO GOOD. Bourbon list is outstanding, they have the world's top bourbons for you to pick from too. Beer on tap are great choices and COLD. The ... read more

Great food, great service
As soon as we walked in, we felt like we belonged there. It's almost a weird thing to say for a restaurant, but it's true. The hostess was really nice and bubbly. She made sure that we were seated comfortably. Our waitress, Elyissa, was so amazing. She really took the time (we ate a little early for dinner, they did fill up pretty qu ... read more

Great food and staff.
The food was so good. Ribs were top notch. I was not a fan of the chopped chicken, but that was preference not taste. The pork belly was definitely not what we were use to, but the waitress did tell us it was like bacon. The Mac and cheese was over the top. Loved it. I also enjoyed the pickles on the plate. There were several varieti ... read more

Always the best service and the BEST BBQ. Brisket, pork belly, pan lamp Mac and Cheese, brisket tacos. It’s all so good!
Mark Herrmann via - Jun 9, 2022
Excellent food!
We got the sample plate of BBQ and it was all delicious. Our group of 16 had no trouble getting a table. We would go here again.

The best BBQ I have ever had...
Nigel Preece via - Jun 6, 2022
Old City BBQ delivers a good take on BBQ. My favorite dish here is the pork belly tacos. They are delicious. If you're on the Busch Gardens end of 60 and looking for a good bite to eat, don't hesitate to stop in.
David Shannon via - Jun 3, 2022
Came with my patient and her ladies group. The service was wonderful. I had the arugula salad and I don’t eat meat. They also have a portobello mushroom burger also. Price was fair given the size of portions. Will definitely come back for the drinks as they have what looked like a decent size bar.
Bianca Lomax via - Jun 1, 2022
Delectable! My favorite is the pork belly bbq, scrumptious!
Mitzi Santayana via - May 31, 2022
We smoke our own brisket and pulled pork, so we were eager to taste the competition. We came here for lunch on a Saturday, and the hostess and server were both very nice and helpful. Pulled pork platter: very tender, but the smoke flavor (apparently they use oak) was overwhelming. Adding the pickles and one of the sauces helped to te ... read more

First time visiting and it won't be the last. Brisket Dip (take on the French Dip) was astounding. Ribs were perfect combination of fall off the bone tenderness and smoked flavor. Banana pudding was phenomenal. Our service and server were excellent.
James Belcher via - May 28, 2022
Food was excellent and the portions were extremely generous. We had a wonderful late lunch.

Pamela Cappetta via - May 27, 2022
Legit brisket and the brisket dip was unique and awesome. Sides were pretty awesome also especially the Brussels. Even the arugula salad was solid. I am a fan of this place worth a try for sure they have something for everyone.

The problem with Williamsburg is 90% of the restaurants immediately surrounding the colonial district, well, suck. Sorry. They just do. They aren’t inspiring and are only packed because of tourist and it’s obvious in price & quality. Step slightly off the beaten path to Old City Barbeque where they have a little bit of everything and ... read more

Lots of Very Good Choices
We were headed out to Mother's Day lunch in Colonial Williamsburg since our picnic at Freedom Park was rained out/Frozen out this May 8. Of course things are filled so we tried Old City Barbecue.

Best BBQ in town
By far the best barbecue in town. Generous potion of pulled pork barbecue on my sandwich topped with slaw, and of course a choice of sauce. Sides of collard greens and sweet potato fries were outstanding. Highlight of our evening was our server, Grace. Despite handling several tables, she didn’t miss a beat. Any request we had was me ... read more

Mother's Day dinner
Dinner was excellent. As a person that smokes meat, they did an awesome job. I had the brisket dip with collard greens, my wife had three sides baked beans, Mac and cheese, and sweet potato fries. All was very good. Brianna our server was nice and did a great job.

One of the best barbecue restaurants I've ever experienced and I am something of a barbecue expert. The brisket sandwich was perfection, ditto sweet potato fries, and collard greens. Great service too. Son reports Ribs are A+. GET THE CORNBREAD!!

Pork Belly Bites for the WIN
These were the best pork belly bites I've ever had! Sauce was tasty also! The queso mac & cheese was also super tasty. Will most definitely have this at the top of my list if I'm visiting again!

Best barbecue in Williamsburg. The brisket alone is worth five stars but don't underestimate the baked beans and collards as a side. Great selection of local beers too!

Very good! Great for families! Quick casual dinner. Smoked meats, Mac n cheese, beans and in house made pickles. Yummy!

If you want great food, excellent service, and don’t care much about the decor, this is the place for you. One of many barbecue places in Williamsburg, but it has to be the best.

Some might think Kansas City people crazy for trying a bbq restaurant in Williamsburg, Virginia. It was delicious and we both highly recommend this place if you're ever in the area!

Friendly service, definitely recommend the mac & cheese, meats were nicely cooked and good, but not great. The ribs were 'fall-off-the-bone' tender, but the chicken was a bit dry. The dry-rubbed wings, however, were exceptional, very meaty and tasty. Definitely skip the coleslaw, though, it was very disappointing. The bbq sauce needs ... read more
Andrew Orens via - Mar 14, 2022
My wife said the beans were the best she's ever tasted in her life. I do agree they were excellent. Coleslaw was also exception. But this is of course a BBQ place and I say it was top notch. Great smokey flavors and VERY tender ribs. If I was putting up a top 10 list of BBQ joints this place would be there.
Solomon Hindel via - Mar 14, 2022
Great BBQ and Beer selection. All reasonably priced! Love seeing their food truck at local breweries. Staff is friendly and chill! Keep up the good work, great venue for the Williamsburg Community!

Staff were friendly and attentive, the food was awesome. I'll have to say the only thing I didn't like was I thought the pulled pork was too shredded.
