After driving past this place for quite a while and promising to stop in, we finally did. One of the best chopped pork sandwiches I have ever had. Meat was moist and juicy, and very flavorful. Will definitely be returning here.

We were looking for something to eat while traveling down from Georgia to Orlando. This is a little more than 2 miles off I-75 in what looks like the middle of nowhere but OMG!!! The food is ridiculously yummy!! We had the pulled pork sandwich, ribs and mixed veggies. This food was so good I need Guy Fieri to checks... More

I've had BBQ in a few places in town, a number of places from Florida through the South to Ohio and out in Texas but nothing touches the ribs and brisket here. The brisket is oak-smoked at 350° for about two days (I asked) with their dry rub. The meat is beefy, moist and smokey. Today, we had the regular-sized... More

It is a country store in Micanopy....out in the middle of the country. The vast majority of folks are locals, so when you walk in just watch them and you will see how to order and where to pay...yes, it is a little different! Your order at the deli bar, and get a ticket. You get the drinks at the... More

Ordered a chopped pork sandwich. The pork was so incredibly tender with just the right amount of seasonings.

I like restaurants where the ambience matches the type of food and kick @ss BBQ in a country gas station tops the list. Hands down the best BBQ we've had in ten years. The place was packed and the food was flying out of the "kitchen" with lightning speed. Every aspect of the food was top notch and the background... More

We stopped by Pearl's on our way to Marjorie Kinnan Rawlings State Park and - OMG - we were not disappointed. Now, we make it a point to go to Pearl's for lunch whenever we head up to Gainesville from Orlando. The BBQ is some of the best we have ever had. Succulent and juicy ribs that are fall-off-the-bone tender... More

Who would've thought! Some of the best BBQ I've had in a long time! Great service and good prices, hometown feel. Can't wait to stop in again. I think I'd detour off of I-75 just to pay a visit...

Thank heavenbound_777
