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.
Bar upstairs and restaurant downstairs. Great tasting meat. Staff seemed fine. Get a Bodeans card for offers every day of the week. There are TVs in the restaurants so don't go for a date if your partner will be distracted!
Bodeans does the job. A pretty varied menu with a number of options across the BBQ spectrum. Big portions are an upside but make sure you've got a big glass of water (or beer) as the ribs and meat can be pretty dry. Good fun for a group of mates to catch up and have a laugh but if you're a serious BBQ connoisseur I'd suggest elsewhere.
Big space for Soho, which makes it a very interesting option for last minute decisions.
Bodeans meat is great, although I found that ribs can be a bit dry.
My favourite is the hand carved beef sandwich. Delicious!!!
A great BBQ joint in the heart of London. You can sit up stairs in the bar area for counter service, or down in the basement for table service. I had the Boss Hog Dog with a Coke and absolutely loved it. Can be busy at peak lunch times but arriving at 12, when it opens, often works a treat.
Damn fine US-style barbeque. Good value for money. The Buffalo Chicken Wings are the best I've had in the UK (and most of the States!)
