Good ole' southern BBQ in downtown Los Angeles is almost like an oxymoron. Thanks to Pearl's BBQ that is now a reality! Bring your boots and a massive appetite as a trip to Pearl's will leave your soul and your belly full to the brim!

The decor of Pearl's is not your average LA restaurant. Outlined with rustic features including haystacks, Texas flags and next to a dirt road (perfect for a little two-step action before or after your meal!) As Luke Bryant says, 'Kick The Dust Up!'

Our Picks: 16 Hour Smoked Brisket and Grandma Pearl’s Pecan Pie made from a secret recipe that is handed down for five generations that will have everyone begging for more!

Smoked Brisket guests will be clearing their calendars and preparing to celebrate Fourth of July at Pearl’s BBQ all weekend long.
