Best brisket south of Memphis

Best BBQ Brisket south of Memohis. The burger is good, fries, potato salad etc. but nothing compares to the brisket. We have yet to have the tamales as they are always out. Please call before you drive over because hours are very sporadic.

Pimanyoli's has been one of my favorite restaurants for several years. The BBQ here is awesome!! I mean, you can appreciate a real smoky taste in their food that tastes more like homemade than other restaurants in town. I LOVE their smoked wings!! They're like no others in Baton Rouge. And the tamales are TO DIE FOR good!! They only... More

The place is in the strip mall by Little Village off Airline Hwy. Once in the door, the place is very cozy. We opted not to get apps so we ordered a brisket sandwich and "the Pepper". The brisket was cooked to perfection. You could taste the smoke flavor in each bite. The Pepper was a sandwich with brisket, pulled... More

Ok, so the barbecue is first class yummy, and the mac and cheese will make you slap yo' mama (but don't). ALWAYS call before you head over, because the open hours are sporadic. They have a 100 year old tamale recipe on the menu, but tamales are not available every day... go figure. If they are when you visit, order... More

I got the chicken side walker sandwich because it sounded delicious. But it was kind of boring instead. It didn't taste bad, but I was looking for something better. I'm not sure what niche they are trying to fill, but if it's bbq, then they should have hit it out of the park. I also had bread pudding for dessert,... More

To be fair, when I set my mouth for ribs, I have great expectations. I had eaten at this restaurant about a year ago and had remembered that it was pretty good. I read on the internet that it was very busy, so I was prepared to wait. Well, we rolled in at 6:45 on a Saturday night and when... More

This is our family hangout restaurant. We love it because the food is good and it is inexpensive The restaurant is not too noisy so we can relax after a day of work. The bbq is excellent. Also, we like the grilled shrimps salad.

You wouldn't think to get tamales at Pimanyoli's but don't pass them up. The ribs are excellent and the beans meaty. Some of the best sweet potato fries in town. Odd hours though. Check their website for hours before you leave home.
