Pearl's Place | Bronzeville | American, Southern/Soul Food | Restaurant
Soul food and dandy made-to-order fried chicken in a HoJo-esque space adjoining a motel.

Our Review

Don't let the HoJo-esque interior deter you: Pearl's Place serves great soul food. Cooked-to-order items such as the juicy fried chicken and catfish are some of the best executed in the city; while some might fault the cook's light hand with the spices, there's no denying the quality of a batter as supercrispy and light as this one. Also on the menu are a number of smothered meats--chicken, steaks, and chops-and the standard sturdy sides, with mac 'n' cheese and collards as standouts. Salmon croquettes rival the fried chicken for top menu honors; homemade peach cobbler and sweet potato pie satisfy. On weekends there's an all-you-can-eat brunch buffet with still more comfort food—pancakes, French toast, grits, rice and gravy, moist scrambled eggs, hash browns, and bacon, sausage, and grilled ham. Eat too much and you could always check into the adjoining motel for a bit of a nap.
