I went here for lunch with a work colleague. The service was good and the food was tasty. Good value for a quick, reasonably priced lunch.

Growing up in the south I’ve had a lot of BBQ. Mr. Powdrell’s did not disappoint. Will definitely go back and try out the catfish.

Now before I explain my disgust, let me say that I never leave bad reviews. This BBQ was the most distasteful I've ever had. I had the pull pork dinner plate with honey beans, macaroni, and cornbread. This was my first time at Mr. Powdrell's....More
