I'd heard about this relic from friends who'd stayed in the area so I had to check it out. I drove along SR 441 looking for it but had to pull into a gas station to ask directions. The three 'ole boys' in cammo sitting on a bench outside stared at me and pointed inside...I had arrived at Pearls! My... More

What a fabulous find. Best barbecue we have ever had anywhere! Came across this place by accident and were impressed with selection of food and the place was packed with locals. Sadly we didn't notice the picnic tables for outdoor eating until we left. That's ok, we will come back!

Very good southern BBQ. The pork sandwiches we loaded with meat cooked the way it should be and the potato salad and Mac and cheese sides were generous and very good. The setting is described by the name. The place is obviously popular with the locals. We were there just before church let out and all of a sudden the... More

If you did not talk to someone locally, you would never know the best BBQ in the region is in the back of this gas station on SR 441. But if you stopped for gas, the heavenly aroma of roasted meats would draw you into the store where you would find 10 or so tables filled with serious BBQ consumers... More

Pearl's is located in a gas station, but don't let that fool you! The food is great! I have been many times. The barbecue is so good, but my favorite thing is their breakfast. Tastes like your country grandma's cooking!

Little known local spot that has amazing brisket and darn good Mac n cheese. Gets very busy at lunch but well worth the wait! I go at least once a week.

Country food reminds me of my mamma. Odd that its in a gas station but adds to the uniqueness. We had the pork dinner along with Mac n cheese, fried okra, baked beans and collard greens. Nice portions. I had leftovers so I get to have some again. Yummy. Stop in.

Most people gave a rating of 4 to a 5 but for me, maybe I just caught it on an off-day. I order the beef brisket and it was very dry and hard like it was sitting around for a long time. The place was very busy and it seem to have a lot of local people around.

First off let me say I am not a huge fan of bbq. On the other hand my significant other is a bbq fanatic. We would only eat at bbq places if he had his way. Our motorcycle group rode here for lunch and it was so good we returned on our own the next week at MY request. This... More

I know the title of my review doesn't coincide with the five star rating but I gave it five stars because typically it is and I'm hoping my recent visit was just due to an off night. I have been going through Micanopy on my way back from Ocala several times during the past few months and always look forward... More
