Description: Pearl Street Station, located one block west of Granbury's Historic Square, is a SMALL eatery that is BIG on flavor, featuring authentic Cajun dishes like Etouffee, Gumbo and Blackened Catfish daily. All of our meats are smoked on the premises and served with homemade sauces and toasted jalapeno/cheese sourdough bread. Ask for our Sister Special -- named for Sister from Granbury Live and our number one seller --smoked turkey with lemon dill sauce and mozzarella.

“Great Etouffe In An Unlikely Place”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 6, 2014

Amazing. Great Cajun crawfish etouffe at a gas station in the middle of Texas...who would have ever thought? Actually, Pearl Street Station is a FORMER gas station. Now it's actually a casual BBQ place that happens to have a Cajun chef who makes super Cajun food. My wife and I have been there three times now. She always gets their BBQ turkey sandwich and really raves about how good it is. And I always get the etouffe...great taste, TONS of crawfish, and a real bargain.

Granbury is about an hour and a half from where we live, but it's a beautiful drive, an interesting town, and the best etouffe this side of Baton Rouge!

“Awesome bread, good pulled pork”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 15, 2013

What may be the best BBQ sourdough sandwich bread anywhere and some pretty fine pulled pork and delicious sauce makes this a "must go" restaurant for us. We travel here over an hour, always looking forward to the visit. The venue is decorated like a Sinclair gas station, so benches and serve yourself are the ambiance.

“Are you sure that was food?”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed November 26, 2013

I went in the place thinking this is gonna be good. I ordered and they brought the food out pretty quick and I loved the atmosphere. I dig in to eat my cajun food, and nearly spit it out right on the table. I know cajun food and this was nowhere near. It tasted like they tried to sneak icing instead of hot sauce.

“Delightful”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed September 6, 2013

We had tried to go by before but found out they closed at 6. We had a delightful experience in a small town cafe sort of way. They had menus but we ordered at the counter. The gentleman who waited on us explained what would come with what. During the course of our meal we found out that they made their bread (jalapeno cheese) & all their other foods. The sauce was delicious! We both had pulled pork but my husband had a plate so he could get cole slaw & then ordered a side of the seafood gumbo. Since it was lunchtime & we were still going to be walking in the heat, he opted to not have the catfish or etouffe. We were told they also make their own desserts...we were too stuffed to try them. They do not sell coffee though since they do not have enough requests for it (we were the third request in six months). The smoker for their meats is outside so you can smell the wonderful aroma. Pricing is $-$$ depending if you order a sandwich or a plate.

“The Best”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed August 31, 2013 via mobile

Be sure you try the turkey. Always moist and smokey. Jalapeño bunn and special dill sauce make it a winner.
