We were somewhat disappointed to find it was some awkwardly placed seating in the middle of a little gas station / store. It had passable food, but no real atmosphere. Pretty much a grab-a-bite-and-go kinda set-up.

Went here while I was at a friend's visiting some of the greatest barbeque ever.I highly recommend this little treasure hole in the wall place.The prices were very reasonable there was kinda of a wait but that was because the place was packed.A real local treasure.

I have to say that once you got past the ill mannered waitress that was serving us the day we ate there, the BBQ was as good as our friends said it was. You can order the chicken, ribs and brisket by weight so that you don't stuff yourself but if you do you can take it home with you!... More

Based on reviews I found this gem. Just go in the mini store and you can see the food in the back and the smell is so enticing. You can see the meats, and some sides. They have an easy system to take orders, pay then return for pick up. Mine was to go but there is room to eat... More

This is the real deal in a quaint country store setting. It's all homemade right in front of you and you can eat there or take out. Really large portions, too!!

When i was told this place was amazing, i went and was surprised to find a restaurant INSIDE the corner gas station. It, however, exceeded my expectations and beyond. Their meats are all smoked there ( they do catering too) and they are so good. Their breakfast potatoes just need to be eaten by you so that i don't sound... More

Pearl's is a good spot to grab a bite traveling between Gainesville and Ocala. The service is fast and it has a casual, small-town feel. The restaurant is in the back of a gas station. They have many pie choices and I am still working my way through trying all of them. I have had breakfast there too and was... More

Stopped here to get some provisions for camping in nearby Paynes Prairie and got lured to the back of the store by the smell of wonderful BBQ. Ordered the regular brisket plate to go and went on my way. Back at the campsite I was amazed at the amount and tastiness of the meat - perfectly cooked and enough for... More

I just can't imagine liking a creme brule like crust on my ribs. Sweet n savory in the extreme. But I loved it. I asked the gal at the counter which I should try - ribs or pork. She looked over at the display case and said - today, ribs. So glad I listened. Three ribs with a crisp crust... More
