“Best BBQ in souther Alachua Co”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 18, 2014

Always great ribs and brisket. Fresh sides good variety. I'm fond of their spicy BBQ sauce. I've never tried their breakfasts, but the place is small and crowded which is always a good sign.

“The Best BBQ Ever”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 17, 2014

This place is very deceiving. You think it's just a gas station/convenience store but it's so much more. The bbq is amazing and the ambiance is truly southern. The bbq pork sandwich is huge and delicious but if you want to have the best corn beef hash for breakfast you'll have to come on the weekend. The place can get packed but it's worth the wait! By the way I am a local and if I could and my waistline could tolerate it I'd eat here all the time:)

“What a Find!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 2, 2014 via mobile

Traveling home from a Florida vacation and saw the sign on the side of 75, made a quick exit, followed the signs to Pearl's. It doesn't look like much,but when a place is filled with the local police and the parking lot is filed with trucks it is often a good sign. We ordered a brisket sandwich with a side of cole slaw and a pulled pork sandwich with a side of beans. The brisket was terrific, the pulled pork got a thumbs up as did the baked beans. The slaw was unusual with a dressing that was neither tangy nor sweet. The sandwiches were HUGE. The sides large, the service fast and friendly. As we left we noticed that the regulars were all getting the ribs which looked great. We definitely recommend Pearls for travelers who are tired of the typical drive throughs. You can get way better food here, served quickly. There is a wide selection of sides from potato salad to Mac n cheese to greens. The main dishes include pulled pork, ribs, brisket, and chicken. There are sandwich and platter options and in the morning you can get breakfast. Pearl's is about a mile and a half off the highway and definitely worth the stop.

“Good quick food”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed March 24, 2014

I stop when I am in the area. They have good homemade desserts, good bbq and lots of sides. They smoke their own bbq. Not awesome but pretty good.
