Brisket was overdone and tasted like pot roast, no smoke ring on meat. I was disappointed based on what I heard about this place. Beans and Cole slaw were nothing exceptional. Maybe I went on an off day.

I had the BBLT (brisket, bacon, lettuce and tomato) and mac/cheese. The sandwich was amazing. The brisket was probably the most tender I've ever eaten. The macaroni and cheese was delicious. Will have to go back to try the tamales as they had run out at lunch. Have heard about this place many times but had just never made it... More

Great burgers , great service but brisket here is amazing. Sometimes can get little crowded at lunch time. Food comes fast and wait usually not long.

This is a really great, family owned & operated restaurant. Don't let the strip mall deter you. They serve some of the finest soul food and smoked meats in the city.

I saw this place mentioned in an article in the paper about great burgers, but when I looked on their website, I saw that they also do tamales and I am a tamale junkie! Long story short, they often run out of tamales, especially on game day, so now I have a reason to go back. I ended up getting... More

Blink and you miss it. Driving along Airline Highway across from Kleinpeter's heading toward Prarieville, if you look over to your left you will see Mr. Taco and Wings of Glory. A few feet over from the right, however, is a very sublte restaurant sign saying Pimanyoli's. You may not even be able to see it too well at the... More

Well, what a very nice read! I enjoyed my conversation with you, and I appreciate you taking the time to write such a detailed review about us. One correction, the seasoning for our brisket was crafted by my late husband, Piman. He also crafted that special BBQ sauce that folks literally drink all the time. The technique for cooking the...

Delicious food. Best ribs in all of the south. We travelled New Orleans to Nashville and back and went on the way north and on the way back south. The sample Platter is the way to go!

This place has been around for almost a decade probably and I never knew what type of food it was. I found out it was BBQ and had to try it. Amazing. The meats are all smoked, seasoned well, juicy, and delicious. The mac n cheese is a little different but so creamy and good. The service was fast and... More

Pimanyoli's has long been a family favorite for a quick sandwich at lunch or a nice barbecue dinner. The menu is varied with great selections of pork, chicken and beef but our favorite selection is the pulled pork sandwich complete with cole slaw. For an appetizer be sure and try the tamales. They are delicious. They's also got some great... More
