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!

My food was fantastic but my girlfriend ordered the burnt ends with pulled pork and honestly the portion wasn’t anywhere near what we had hoped it would be.

I wish I could I say there was one thing on the menu that's a must have, but to be honest we've never been disappointed with what ever we've ordered. We've eaten in the SOHO restaurant and the Covent Garden restaurant, the food has been so juicy and tender. The service has been friendly. My only criticism would be for the drinks menu to stock at least one darker ale and not just IPA in the ale section. Look forward to eating at Bodean's again soon.

Nothing special at all I would never go back. Not smoked at all. Burnt ends I believe, cooked in the oven as very dry and no smokey flavour. Ribs very average I’ve had better at home out of a packet. Beef rib again cooked in the oven. Waiter was good though....
