Old City Barbeque was one of the better places where we have eaten BBQ. I tried the taco sampler and thought the pork was very good and the brisket even better. My wife tried the brisket chili and thought it too was quite good. I was a little disappointed in the available sauces. One vinegar, one BBQ sauce and a mustard sauce. Of the ... read more

Best smoked meat ever! We split the Smoked Meat Sampler and it was scrumptious. Plenty of food for both me and my husband. Ribs were excellent. We found this place by accident, and I'm so glad we did. First time we had dined out since 2019, and the server gave us a Banana Cream Pie dessert to celebrate! She was wonderful.

If you are in Williamsburg, VA hands down some of the best food you can eat. The pork belly bites are the best thing I have eaten in a long long time. Mac and Cheese is on point as well.

This meal was hands down one of the best of our lives!! If you go here and don't order the pork belly bites you are truly missing out. The smoked wings, queso Mac and cheese and smoked meat sampler were delicious!! Our waitress Nic was kind and helpful. She really took great care of us.

Went for an early dinner as a family. It was the best meal/bbq I have had in a long time. I had the ribs and my husband got the taco trio - both were excellent.

Me and family were visiting Williamsburg Virginia and this gem was right down the road from our hotel, we just got to-go we went 2 separate times.

Wow! The moment you walk in you are greeted by that amazing bbq smell. We started off with the fried green tomatoes (amazing). Then we had the meat sampler (enough to split-pulled chicken, pulled pork, St. Louis ribs, and brisket). We went with 3 sides (baked beans, cheese fries, and cornbread). We also ordered a taste of the baby ba ... read more

A really good BBQ place just over 3 years old. Great menu with good options. Located on 69 near Quarterpath Rd. Better than most other BBQ options in Williamsburg.

Great environment! Fried clams "famous".
Ennovy Nosnibor via google.com - May 6, 2021
Felt they could've given a more generous portion for the sides, maybe two or three slices of brisket instead of just one. I'd also love to see them fill the sauce more then half way. Ordered the 4meat combo with two sides. Out of that I'd go back for the brisket, baby back ribs, and Mac. Also loved the Tidewater sauce.

Soooo good! We got the pork belly bites as an app. I got the tacos and my hubby got the ribs! So good! The waffle fries are out of this world! The beans were delish! Banana pudding for dessert was superb! Great drinks! Service is phenomenal and staff is so friendly! I HIGHLY recommend!!!

Excellent BBQ....tried all of the meats with my group and everything exceeding expectations. Special shout out for THE BEST Collard Greens I have ever had.....seasoned to perfection, flavorful, and just a tiny hint of heat.

Old City BBQ was good! The portions are a little small for the cost but the flavor was worth every penny!

The menu selection is Southern cuisine and we didn’t expect anything like this in Williamsburg? But the food was incredible! Everything was smoked to perfection and even the collard greens had a unique smoky flavor. The service was outstanding as well. I’ll be back!!

Not the friendliest of servers here, but the arugula salad is my favorite in town by a mile! Love those cheese fries too.

After a long day at Busch Gardens we took a chance and were pleasantly surprised. The atmosphere is rustic and comfortable. We had a party of 8 and they were able to fit us in after a 20 min wait, 10 shorter than estimated. Their brisket is the best I've had since leaving Texas, so moist and perfectly seasoned. The pulled pork was ... read more

We weren’t too familiar with the area but we definitely knew we wanted BBQ. We googled and the images of their food lured us right in! Pork belly bites are dangerously good. The Mac and Cheese makes you want seconds and thirds. Everyone got an extra side and more to go so we could bring it back home from vacation. The cornbread, ribs ... read more

Heather was our waitress and she was amazing. She was quick and there every-time we needed her. And the food was amazing, the ribs had so much flavor and the Mac and cheese was crazy it was so good. If you want a good person every-time you eat ask of heather is there. Have a good day and we will Be back.

Atmosphere If it was full on spring and there were people in the tables outside it would have been lovely, if you added some string lights on the porch even moreso but the fire pit was very nice especially with the temperature dropping.
