Just two minute's stroll from London's busiest retail jungle Oxford Street, Bodean's West in Soho is the deli-up, dinner-down split-level destination for seekers after the authentic taste of the great American outdoors in the heart of London's historic pleasure-seeker's paradise. Home of the best sandwich in town as voted by London's most popular station, Capital Radio, Bodean's big value chow never fails to satisfy the inner urban cowboy and cowgal whether eaten at street level to beat those saddle-sore hunger pangs or relished downstairs in the Broadway-does-Dallas décor and prairie-wide warmth of the West End's friendliest, funkiest welcome. “Best ribs this side of the Atlantic” Time Out, Feb 2009 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 our friendly family of staff whose Butts, we 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. “Serious about smoke” Marina O'Loughlin - Metro, Mar 2009 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!

As always, food superb and the ambience downstairs is just right for me, informal and not at all pretentious. Straight forward great meat and great service, will keep coming back. Thumbs up for the Boss Hog Platter again! Chris

Hi I have visited Bodeans in Soho many times but our visit on Sunday wasn't the best experience, we were kept waiting quite a long time before our drinks order was taken and it wasn't particularly busy. Then we ordered our food to say I love Bodeans is an understatement so i was very much looking forward to my food. The first mouthful of burnt ends was just a mouthful of fat and gristle which was horrible and really put me off I then tried the pulled pork and again it was all fatty. I pushed my food away after eating just the chips. I went to the ladies and the toilets were disgusting the door was broken off 1 and was in the corridor and the general state of repair was awful. I dont know what has happened but it wasn't a good experience and i wont be rushing back. I told our waiter why i hadn't eaten mine and all he said was "really?" no offer of refund or complimentry drink or dessert. Very very disappointing

I visit Bodeans often and it never disappoints. This was the first time taking a larger group which was handled well.
