Mr. Powdrell's Barbeque House Restaurant Review

: Spicy ’cue, peppery and heavily smoked, awaits you here, as do such classic side dishes as black-eyed peas and collard greens. The smoked turkey legs are sold at the annual New Mexico State Fair and the big, meaty drumsticks are the first introduction for many to Powdrell's. Try the hot links and the brisket, too, and be sure to order the family's signature peach and cherry cobblers. As for booze, it’s off the table, but iced tea and lemonade quench in classic style.
