the food was delicious! the price is a bargain, our waitress was truly nice and courteous.
i ordered the beef ribs...excellent succulant wasnt all fat with a slim trail of meat like yu get at most places that serve ribs this was ALL MEAT..sauce was spicy and reminded me of a good home made sauce, spicy but rich dark but sweet robust flavor not too gooey but just messy enuff! and for dessert a slice of cobbler OH YEH! oh and the collards were soo juicy and good; they have one of the best outside-home-made-potato salads too
its kinda small but intimate, the feeling is welcoming and like grandma's home; this would be a great date place. be yurself and enjoy the food! *they have a take out menu also!
i ate here today for my birthday. the food was stupendous, best b-b-q i have ever had. the waitress was great-did't have to come to the table a thousand times to ask how it was-she already knew,(tee hee). i will definately make this a regular thing.
Oh my! What is there not to like? We love eating in the old house on 4th. We love Joe and his staff. My mouth is watering now thinking about their BBQ chicken, collard greens, fried okra . . . I have to stop, but not before the cobbler. Great food! Best BBQ in Albuquerque! Great people!
Powdrell's has catered numerous events for us. Every time, they go out of their way. See my review of Powdrell's catering.
A friend and resident of Santa Fe suggested Powdrell's Barbeque House. The Powdrell Family has been in the business since 1871 and they sure know their BBQ!
I ordered the daily special which was fried catfish and an order of any meat with two side dishes. The catfish was excellent! The pork spareribs were tender but not falling off the bone, succulent and smokey-the way I like my ribs.
I brought 2 bottles of Powdrell's BBQ Sauce home. Their sauce is a winner.
A photo of film maker Spike Lee and Mr. Powdrell are on display in the main dining room. I am sure Mr. Lee can confirm all the good things I have said about Powdrell's. Powdrell's is an Albuquerque Gem.
The people that own the place are great, they will come by and sit and chat with you, and everything on the menu is delicious! The best part is the barbecue sauce is for sale, so you can take it home and put in on some of your own dishes.
