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. The only thing we didn't love was how long it took for our food to come out, however they were incredibly busy, especially considering it was a Thursday night (so random). They got super packed right aft ... read more

This was our first time here so we tried a little of everything. My wife and I ordered a 6 piece wing with the dry rub. The smoked taste was outstanding. I ordered a 2 meat plate with pork belly and beef brisket and my wife had just the beef brisket. All was tender and delicious. Their pickles are very good as well. The Server was su ... read more

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.

Great barbecue and dessert
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. For dessert, the pecan pie or chocolate pie were really good. Would happily come here again. Close to colonial...and not too far from Busch gardens.More ... read more

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
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
Food was good. Nice enough weather to sit outside. I ordered the brisket. The sweet potato fries and beans and poblano mac were delicious!!!
Kimberly Rose via google.com - Oct 2, 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.

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
Some of the best wings you can get in Williamsburg. Hands down.

I was craving BBQ, so we let the Yelp app lead us to Old City BBQ and we got the family meal to go.

The mac and cheese was very good, and the slaw was outstanding.  The cornbread was a bit dry, but the pulled pork was completely fabulous!  It tasted so great that it didn't need any extra sauce :-)

Good food and great staff! We had a server named Brian today. We sat outside. The place was clean inside and out! Staff was all observed following all covid-19 safety guidelines and all worked well as a team! Would definitely visit again!
Jessica Lacey via google.com - Sep 19, 2020
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.

So good! There were 11 of us between ages 1 and 66 and we ALL loved it. Even me, the vegetarian, enjoyed the side dishes.

One of the best places around for barbecue! These were some of the meatiest and most tender ribs I’ve had in this area. The Mac and Cheese is out of this world and the corn bread was light and crumbly. Friendly service always. My only complaint is that this time they had not removed the membrane from the underside other ribs. I thoug ... read more

Glad to have great BBQ in Williamsburg! I just moved back here and really enjoyed the 3 meat sampler with pulled pork, brisket (nicely seasoned, great smoke ring, moist, tender, and flavorful), and pork belly.

Food was delicious from the ribs and pulled pork or chicken tacos to the sweet potatoes waffles, french fries and cornbread. Our whole family enjoyed their meal. Sauces are not the traditional BBQ sauce, yet delicious in their own right. Servers are kind and friendly. Will definitely go again.

Very good barbecue, very nice restaurant inside. You know you're in for a treat when you pull in the parking lot and see all the grills and smokers out back. Definitely worth the trip. Not a single subpar meat existed on the smoked meat sampler platter.

If I could rate this place with 100 stars I would. We had the smoked fried wings with the dry rub, the pork belly bon mi sandwich, collard greens, and mac n cheese. The entire meal was hands down the SINGLE MOST decadent meal I have ever had. Today was my first time going there. I will be returning weekly. OMG! So so so good!
