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!

Dinner was ok. The burnt ends, shredded meat and sausage were beautiful. The chicken was too dry to eat and the ribs were getting that way but still nice. Service was not great my sweet potato fries never turned up but were still on the bill at the end.

Tried lots of BBQ restaurants around London, but always go back to Bodeans. It doesn't pretend that BBQ is fancy dining, it just does what it does brilliantly. Awesome food, great portions, and kitchen roll on the table for when it all gets messy. Can't wait for my next visit.

The stars for me were the ribs, sausages and fries. The meat was super juicy, succulent and so tender that it just fell off the bone. A bit disappointing was the chicken thighs - the seasoning was great but the texture of the meat itself wasn’t. Overall though we had a really enjoyable meal and the service was excellent. Would definitely visit again!
