My Jack Daniels and diet is the best I’ve ever had. The music is awesome. The service couldn’t be better. The food, however. I have no words. Eat here. Regularly. I’m obsessed.

First time eating here. My wife and I will certainly be back. With outside seating available and a very pleasant server (Anna), this was an excellent experience. The food quality and prices make a return trip a must.

Pulled chicken sandwiches, cole slaw, and corn bread were delicious! Probably the best cole slaw I've ever had! We ordered delivery and it was delivered in a reasonable time and hot. Will definitely remember this place next time we're in Williamsburg.

Good food that provides solid bbq as well as new takes on it. The smoked wings may not suit all tastes but worth a try. The brisket is the star! Outdoor dining is limited and by road but great for our four legged friends.

My two girlfriends and I were in Williamsburg for the night, and we found this gem via Yelp. We were not disappointed in the least.

We did a rehearsal dinner here for 30+ and the food and staff were great.  The food was so good and the drinks were awesome.  Vernon was so great to deal with.  Everyone had a great time.  We will go back again and again.  The wedding was at the Williamsburg Winery, which was near by.

Ate here twice in one weekend! Staff super kind and helpful. We had recommend the wings, pork belly sandwich, fried green tomatoes and pulled pork tacos.

Great place for bbq. My husband and I always try different bbq places out when we go on vacation & this was hands down one of the best!! Try the pork belly topped cheese fries! They are to die for!!! The brisket was so tender try it alone or on the French dip.
Haley Robbins via google.com - Oct 3, 2020
Food was good. Nice enough weather to sit outside. I ordered the brisket. The sweet potato fries and beans and poblano mac were delicious!!!

Oh my goodness their Brunswick stew was delicious! Always a bonus when a restaurant has a gluten-free menu! That makes me happy. Also brisket and pulled pork was delicious too!
Kimberly Tenkley via google.com - Oct 2, 2020
Great Food
We had four different meals. Each of us thought it was some of the best bbq we have ever eaten; including the sides. The service was erratic. Over the top attention to no attention. Can't tell if they miscalculated volume for the evening or what.
IraSMiller via tripadvisor.com - Sep 30, 2020
Love Old City Barbecue and truly think it is the best bbq joint in Williamsburg. Amazing flavors and lots of options for non meat lovers as well. Always a great beer selection and my husband loves the Bourbon collection. This chili was out of this world and the wings are to die for.

The food was good. We enjoyed the meat sampler meal. The greens was very salty so we returned it and got the mac and cheese instead. Social distancing was practiced.
