I don't know why exactly, but barbeque seems kind of rural to me. As does off-the-beaten path barbeque restaurants. Especially when they're spelled Bar-B-Que versus BBQ or barbeque. Anyhow, last week, when we were staying in Williamsburg, it seemed like we just had to take a drive down a few backroads to eat at Pierce's. How could we not, with that name?
I wanted to buy Pierce a t-shirt, but the smallest size they had wouldn't have fit him for about another 5 years. So we decided to hold off on that.
Pierce, ironically, didn't try the barbecue. He's in an anti-spicy phase, and won't eat barbecue. So he settled for a corn dog and fries. I tried to take his picture but he gave me a fake smile. So I told him to give me a BIG smile and I got this slightly mischievious face:

Mmm. American BBQ is one thing I really miss in Japan. Yum! :-)
Nothing wrong with a good ol' corn dog and some fries! We have a joint here called "Butt Rub BBQ". Needless to say, I was a bit nervous the first time I ate there. :-)
I think he's adorable! Hope he liked his food. What a fun trip.
what a cutie! when we lived in missouri we'd drive 3 hours for kc bbq! then in georgia, we really started to like nc bbq...there is one place back home (san diego) that's so old, i remember going as a kid even and it seemed old then lol...but they have the BEST bbq, brisket and the best sauce...i guess that was more texas.
I love Carolina bbq too. How cool to get to eat at a restaurant with your name on it.
What an adorable face!!!.... you could buy the T-shirt and make a pillow out of it for his bed.
Lisa, Pierce is so darned cute!! As far as making faces go..... you just wait. My Grandkids make me so mad, everytime we try to take a picture, they make such ugly faces that I finally made them stop. All the kids seem to do it and I can't figure out what is up with that.
I'm the opposite, Texas first, then NC. But it's all good. Love the "big smile".
Nothing beats n.c BBQ! !! Have a great day
Hope he enjoyed his bbq! Love the smiling face... thanks for hosting, Lisa.
That fakey smile runs in our family amongst Hubby, his brother and our two grandsons. Must be a man thing. LOL
The barbie cue looks mighty tasty!
he's a cutie. :)
Oh I wish we had good Bar-B-Que here. We have to go South for it :(
Your guy is sooooo cute!
love bbq...my wife just learned in recent weeks of cooking the pork all day in a crock pot in root beer, then adding sauce in the end...turned out great
He's adorable! Here I am stuck in NC and I don't particularly care for NC BBQ. lol
Have you tried Famous Dave's? THAT'S my favorite style of BBQ. :)
Mmm, BBQ! I don't think I have one particular favorite region . . . just so long as it's good! Though I do enjoy Carolina BBQ.
That must've been so fun for Pierce to go to "Pierce's Bar-B-Que"!
Maybe the next time you're in the Williamsburg area you can get him the t-shirt.
I love that you went out of your way for Pierce to eat at Pierce's! I love doing things like that! We made a side trip once while in Kansas to the town of Russell - my husband's name is Russell :)
I love the picture of Pierce with his corn dog and fries!!! Did you meet the other Pierce, or was it just the employees there? Barbeque is a huge deal around here, I'm sure it is there, too. I have a whole post coming up about it.
Wow a place for Pierce!
One of my favorite foods if done right
I love that smile! What a character! And how cool Pierce has a restaurant named after him:)
That pic cracks me up! Pierce could NOT be any cuter. :)
Awww...he's a cutie! Yes, I agree...BBQ is all on individual taste.
With you and Nancy both blogging about food...I'm off to make breakfast!!
Thanks for visiting us at Miss Courtney Meets Bobo. I linked up with your Rural Thursday.
That's so cool to find a Pierce's Bar-B-Que! Did he like seeing his name up on the sign?
When I ate meat, I like NC style the best, though not if it's dry.
He's so cute! NC bbq is best with Carolina BBQ sauce :) I make my own now. It's so easy and much better tasting.
That's awesome! I agree, you had to go visit with a name like that.
Well at least you have this memory to share with him when he is older. Maybe he will like BBQ by then!
omg! your little one is sooo cute!!
what an adorable photo.
i love american bbq!
Awww...what a cutie! Tell him I would have picked the corn dog and fries too! ;-)
I'm getting kind of hungry!
Dave liked that NC twangy bbq; not me, I prefer the sweet.
Cute and ya shudda got the tee; he'll grow.
Well, you'll have to go back in a couple of years and get that shirt. :)
Hi Lisa, hubby and I visited Williamburg 3 years ago. We had us some great BBQ when we were there alos. Not sure of the name. My SIL took us to their favorite place. It was yummy and we had deep fried corn on the cob. I linked up a post. After I did, I'm thinking maybe you just want rural posts. Mine may not be appropriate for your theme. Feel free to deltete it and I'll share some other time.
they have pretty good BBQ. but i've had better. ha. ha!! the hubby & i have to totally different tastes when it comes to BBQ. but i guess alot of people are like that. right?!! (:
Love that mischievous smile! I always find it amusing that you guys refer to barbecue as a type of food and we refer to it as a verb, something you cook the food with.
Gosh---I knew that your oldest son was smart--but I didn't know that he owned a BBQ place.... ha ha ha
I like Texas BBQ---and struggle sometimes at what is made here in TN... ha
Have a great weekend.
Gracious, I can't resist barbecue either. I think it stems from growing up in North Carolina and knowing how it should be done. ;) I make my own barbecue sauce these days, probably more of a texas style, but when I'm able I do pulled pork vinegary barbecue just like the pig pickin's I grew up with. Mmmm. Now I'm hungry. #UBP12
I know exactly where that place is! :) We made our home on down in Chesapeake for thirty years.
I've been craving BBQ and we just can't find something good here. Our favorite too is the NC.
Pierce is a cute little guy!
How cool to find a place called Pierce's Bar-B-Que! lol I would have wanted to try it to with his name on it and all. And when I think about it I don't think I know anyone named Pierce other than your son so that is fun to have found a place with his name on it.
oh bbq, i love it but only certain places. we have a great bbq place five minutes from home. way too expensive but we keep going back because it is that awesome!!
pierce is just soooo cute, my boys "smiled" they same way for pictures, always forced. sometimes it's just better to "shoot" them when they don't know!!
What a fun grin! Looks like he enjoyed it even if it wasn't Bar-B-Que.
He always looks happy! Too bad they didn't have t-shirts in his size.
