In Memorium

Heartbroke is the best way to describe how I feel at reading the news in Duke City Fix that Mr. Powdrell, truly a legendary man, passed Sunday night at the age of 86.

When I used to work at Sandia Labs, the Powdrell’s location on Central was a common lunch spot for me. With pickles!

More often than not, Mr. Powdrell was sitting out front, watching the world go by, cooling off from that hot kitchen. I always gave him a hello and a thank you.

Anyone who provides eats that good deserves heartfelt thanks.

My thoughts go out the Powdrell family and the good people of Albuquerque. Wish I could remember the man by enjoying a big plate of his barbeque today. That’s the best way to honor him that I can think of…

    I live closest to the 4th street location in that old, haunted house. I love going there and getting ribs or a pulled pork sammich… with pickles… and some danged good coleslaw. I don’t even like coleslaw but I eat it at Powdrell’s.
    He certainly was a good guy and quite instrumental in many young lives. His kids still run the restaurants but he was truly the heart and soul.
