It isn’t immediately apparent that you’re in a Southern restaurant when you walk into Pearl’s - the decor doesn’t hit you over the head with a theme, and the large TVs seem like they’d be more at home in a sports bar. But Pearl’s does Southern food very well, serving a mix of Cajun classics like po’boys and jambalaya, as well as excellent barbecue. The barbecue is the real star, so be sure to get the pulled pork, ribs, or smoked chicken.
