Bodean's Old Street in City Road is the destination for seekers after the authentic taste of the great American outdoors. Bodean's big value chow never fails to satisfy the inner urban cowboy and cowgal in search of that great BBQ flavour, complemented by the friendliest and funkiest of welcome. With a menu stretching from the fisheries of New England thru the corrals of Kansas City and downhome kitchens of the Mississippi Delta to the piquant party-in-your-mouth of New Orleans and the marriage made in tastebud heaven where Tex meets Mex, Bodean's prime pork, beef, chicken, shrimp, chili and seriously hearty veggie options are served by a friendly family of staff whose Butts, they boast, are the Best in the West. And when they're not racking ribs, they're pouring the coolest brews between Tijuana and the Arctic Circle. Sounds good? It gets even better as you let your forks and fingers move to the groove of God's own soundtrack where if it ain't rockin', it ain't happenin', and by way of a bonus there is no better place to hang and enjoy big screen sport beamed straight from the US of A - the finest in gridiron, diamond, hoop and puck action - and Prem football to boot!

Had a lovely visit with my family for my sons 20th birthday, he was given a free dessert with a candle in it and they sang happy birthday to him.

Food was very bog standard, not as enjoyable as I remember and the service was rather poor. If I’m honest I don’t think I’d visit again

We were there for the Superbowl game which in the end was a snoozefest, but the service and food was brilliant. I paid £30 for a seat to watch the game, which included a free beer, chicken wings and nachos upon arrival. At half-time we had chicken, bbq ribs, brisket, fries and coleslaw, if was more than enough for 2 people. If the game would have been more better to watch the atmosphere would have been better as everyone was waiting for a spark to get the place more lively. I will be booking again next year though and will be visiting this old street location again soon as my office is over the road.

We have been going to the Bodean's Old Street location for the Super Bowl every year for the past four years, and it just keeps getting better! The food is amazing and plentiful, and the service is top-notch. We highly recommend it!
