I love the family and casual atmosphere, the food is great, ESPECIALLY the mac n cheese!!! My ultimate favorite thing to get at Pimanyoli's is the BLACKBERRY COBBLER!!! OMG, if you haven't tried, you're truly missing out.

You can always get good food here. Atmosphere is casual. Service is excellent. Would definitely recommend this family-owned local cafe for lunch or dinner.

Pimanyoli's offers a great variety of food but are really known for their smoked meats and tamales which are excellent. We have eaten there several times. I always go for 3 or 6 ounces of smoked meat( chicken, brisket, pork) and one or two sides. The macaroni and cheese is good but quality varies-- sometimes it is better than others.... More

Thanks so much for your continued support and review. Of course I love reading positive reviews but I also appreciate when customers are honest enough to let me know what can improve. Sometimes I'm not the only one making the Mac and therefore it can unfortunately vary. But to make a correction. We are open on Saturdays for lunch AND... More

This family run barbecue restaurant is not to be missed. The smoked chicken and macaroni and cheese are heaven on earth. They also make a really delicious and very fresh salad, so you can balance your barbecued decadence with some fresh veggies.

I've been eating at Pimanyoli's for a few years now and all other bbq places in the area pale in comparison. The smoked brisket, Pulled pork, and the specialty sandwiches are beyond compare. The music is great and the sweet tea is perfect. I'll be a loyal customer as they're open!

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
