Heaven that is for authentic southern food, off the menu or buffet style. Wonderfully welcoming, it really seems like everyone enjoys working there. I can't recommend Pearl's highly enough... I had to wait a year before returning to Chicago and this is the first place I headed to. Thank goodness there are still places like this in America. The real deal.

This is a unique restaurant. I went there with a friend for lunch and had the buffet. The Southern cooking was excellent-- I have never had pork ribs this good (the staff told me it's all in the rub)! The buffet--with beverage and dessert was a reasonable $13. The buffet comes with a small salad bar and at least seven meat choices. The staff serves you from the buffet--you don't go through and scoop up yourself. I will be going back.

I took my mom to pearls place after a doctors appointment. We were seated after a few minutes however we waited 20 minutes for a waitress. Once it was decided who are server was things moved along fine until my food came. I order salmon croquet with rice and toast. My rice was cold and my toast didn't come for five minutes. Salmon was good moreover the biscuits at this place were the best I've had in a while. Also the buffet looks great. I think I'll try that next time.
