Wow. Great pulled pork. Can't wait to go back! Highly recommend.


Service was good , used restroom while walking to restroom woman nursing her 3 yearold out in the dining room was interesting. She did not hide it. In my day at the baby shower you'd be gifted a nursing blanket you'd put it over your breast and baby ..times have definitely changed. Pearls has very good BBQ. I think the 3 yr old should have ate a pork sandwich instead. Pearls has great BBQ

First thing, we just don't care about Barbeque that much. That's not why we came here. We wanted BREAKFAST! And we sure got it. My wife is picky about her biscuits and gravy, but she loved it here. Homemade Biscuits covered in delicious Sausage Gravy. The Grits were perfect (everywhere else I've been I have to add salt, but not here). Huge Home Fries. So, is it also a convenience store and gas station? Well...yes. But sometimes you can find the best food at places off the beaten path. This was one of them. We were staying at The Yearling, and Lisa from there recommended The Pearl. Both of our morning meals were there, and we will gladly go there again.

Pulled pork was more like chopped pork. Service was great. Sauces were good. Coleslaw ok. Took a long time for take out. Ice tea was good. Greens were good.

This is the absolute best gas station food ever... don't let the fact it is in a gas station fool you... this is a restaurant...brisket to die for Mac and cheese was incredible portions were over the top. I WILL BE GOING BACK FOR THE FOOD.

Hole in the wall place in the country we happened to stop at for gas-the smell of the place is amazing when you walk in. There was a long line and the store was packed, yet after we ordered it only took a few minutes to receive our food.Now we know why this BBQ spot is so popular with the locals!

Stopped here on our way to Orlando and knew we were in the right place when the parking lot was filled with locals. Pearls BBQ did not disappoint! Servings sizes were extremely generous--way more than any of us could eat. Brisket was fantastic! Husband had the chicken, daughter had the pulled pork-- these were also delicious. Husband loved the banana pudding!

I can't believe I even considered the big portion , because when I got the regular dinner pulled pork with 2 sides it was too much to eat... very tasty..... and I went home with half of it and made a delicious sandwich the next day. Collards were outstanding and Fried Okra delicious.
