In the back of a Marathon gas station is the best BBQ I have ever tasted. Walk up counter, order, pay and have a seat or take it out. Can't wait to get back, worth the two hour trip!

Best barbecue you will taste anywhere. The brisket is amazing. Great for breakfast also with homemade corn beef hash and blueberry pancakes. Staff are always friendly. However, During UF football home games this place is completely packed.

Ribs are fall off the bone tender. I think they are St. Louis ribs. They aren't baby backs. The sides are "ok". Mac n cheese dry, green beans ok, tasted straight out of can. Potatoe salad good. Didn't get the ba beans as they looked...More

Once we found this gas station/country store/BBQ we added it to our list of favorites! There are enough tables to make this a great experience. You order at the counter, get your drinks self-service and the BBQ is brought out to your table. The sandwiches...More

Pearl at first glance looks like your average rural convenience store/gas station. Tucked to the side after you enter is a luncheonette-style barbecue restaurant, offering pork, chicken, brisket and ribs, both as entrees and sandwiches served on a roll or on garlic Texas toast. They...More
