Mr. Powdrell’s offers delicious barbecue in a unique setting. Recognized by the National Historical Registry, the restaurant is located within a transformed brick home. Their meals include bbq beef ribs, bbq pork ribs, and sausage, with all the fixings.

I was quite surprised how awful it was considering how many good reviews they had. The barbecue sauce was very bland and watery. The shaved pork was flavorless. The baked beans had an odd flavor. The ribs were very dried out, perhaps microwaved? The jalapeno...More

Best barbecue I have ever had in the City of Albuquerque. The one on 4th Street has a lot better quality food and atmosphere then the one on Central.

Real Smoked Barbeque My criteria for barbeque is that it should stand up on it's own. No sauce required. The flavor should come from a slow smoke. The closest I found to KC Barbeque in ABQ. It's located in a really cool old house too....More
