Number 1

Pearl’s Place

Restaurants Soul and southern American Grand Boulevard

3901 S Michigan Ave Chicago, IL 60653

 I randomly picked this place while visiting Chi Town from Philly and WOW!!! So impressed from the moment we walked in! Super impressed by how serious they are about Covid restrictions (plastic wrapped silverware, washing hands upon entry). Our waitress was super friendly, food came fast and it was DELICIOUS! And the free biscuits…SOOO GOOD!!! Highly, highly recommend. I wish I had some photos to share but I ordered the Country Fried Steak dinner and my friend got the fried green tomatoes & Famous Shrimp and Cheesy Grits Appetizer- Zakiya K.

I can only speak to my experience of a mini-rib tips with fries, bread and slaw, on a Juneteenth night where you know they were prepared to be moving a lot of meat quickly. Also, while fireworks were happening across the street. But man, under those conditions… it was pretty great. Patrick A.

I saw this restaurant on Yelp and had been meaning to check it out. We don’t have many African restaurants near us so I wanted to try it. Was not disappointed at all. Wife had the tilapia and I got the chicken. Portions were enough for two meals each. I love the spice And it’s got some heat. It’s perfect. Chicken was cooked just right. Not dry at all. Nice selection of sides to try. They have some curry stew dishes that I’m going to try next time we go. It was so good, we went twice in one week. Their take out service is just great. Orders were made fresh. Very friendly service too. Jesse B.

This is an excellent place. My school scheduled an event there. There was an open bar. The bar tenders were very attentive and efficient. And friendly. The food set out for our party was shrimp, wings, meatballs, salad, cheese, etc. the shrimp, wings and cheese are delicious. Steve W.

Jamaican Jerk King

Fantastic!!! Best sauce! Not too sweet. Tender, flavorful, delicious meat. The greens were savory, the rice and gravy fulfilling and hearty. I have tried various veggie sides and they are all good. I love to heat up the sides the next day, even though the meat is gone they are still yummy. Sasha V.
