Back in 2002 Andre Blais had a dream – to bring the taste, the style, the soul of his beloved Kansas City barbecue to the UK! Years later, the Bodean’s family of diner-delis goes from strength to strength – the results of a tireless team effort dedicated to delivering Authentic American BBQ.Today, the Bodean’s BBQ team are always out and about making sure that the slow-smoked BBQ, secret rubs and sauce recipes are up to scratch, and the BBQ obsession and attention as seen in KC are kept alive.
Hands down one of my favourite comfort food spots in London. Make sure to book downstairs if you want to have a proper meal, or just pop in upstairs for a light bite. The Soho special bap is amazing - pulled pork and burnt ends, but the Jacob's ladder ribs are the best. All the meat melts in your mouth, the fries are perfect and the staff are all really friendly. If you don't book and go at a busy time (weekends/thur/fri dinner) be prepared to wait.
Well worth a visit.
It's a meat heaven. Slow cooked, smoked, BBQ meat. We had the sharing platter. It was very good, decent value for money.
Good service too. Downstairs looks more cosy than upstairs.
Went for the Boston Butt sandwich. Really good portions, I think regular is enough for £6.95. The pulled pork is tasty and even better when topped up with the hot chipolte BBQ sauce. The downstairs is a restaurant but we ate upstairs. It's more causal and the food came out just as I sat down.
Great food and atmosphere. Extra seating downstairs.
I had the SOHO special both times (with onion rings). I would recommend this hands down to anyone who wants good BBQ in London.
Edit 5 Sept 2012 to remove extra question mark
Edit 8 April 2017 -- bodeans is constantly on our list to eat at in London. When the BBQ bug bites, we head for bodeans. Always good quality and value for money.
Absolutely delicious. Best BBQ in London. Great atmosphere and service. Get the burnt ends and thank me later
