Bodean’s has a lot in common with Burger & Lobster. They’re both what I would call hipster mini-chains (though Bodean’s uses the term ‘diner deli’), a chain restaurant for people who would either a) wear a checked shirt or b) not mind queuing a bit for relatively unassuming but decent food. Both operate five restaurants in London; Bodean’s fifth is coming soon, to Balham. Both their websites piss me off – Burger & Lobster’s is one of those unnavigable art house shithouses that exists simply to tell people that there might be restaurants out and about that possibly serve burger and/or lobster, but why don’t you...

Bodean’s is a restaurant for all lovers of meat, as that is all you’ll find on the menu – bar a few side dishes.The successful London chain has been around for a while with restaurants in Clapham, Tower Hill, Fulham, Balham and Soho. We decided to venture to the more central location of Soho.The interior is exactly how you imagine a typical American restaurant, with plenty of dark wood panelling and many booths for privacy. There are also various flat screen TV scattered around the restaurant for all the sports enthusiasts...

This has been my Soho saviour on many occasions. With so much to choose from in the area, sometimes all you need is the safe option of a pulled pork sandwich, a pint of Sam Adams and thirty minutes of watching some American sport you don’t understand but convince yourself that you really care about. Bodean’s gives you all of this. Today it was USA vs. Russia in the Winter Olympics ice hockey. There was whooping and hollering in true Yank style from plenty of the diners. It’s hard not to like the place, even if you do find these people bloody annoying...

The chain of restaurants has taken London by storm, and now there are branches all across the capital.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. 10 years later, the Bodean’s family of diner-delis has branches all across the capital. And it’s totally gluten-free friendly – hip hip (hooray).You’ll find Bodeans BBQ in Soho, Fulham, Clapham, Tower Hill and Balham. We visited the Soho branch, after a traumatising trip to Oxford Street to attempt the ultimately unsuccessful...

I have heard many a tale of the establishment that is Bodean’s. People have raved about the meat, and I’ve read reviews of the meat, plus it kept popping up on my Twitter feed because of the… yep, the meat.Now, I am vegetarian for one month a year and egg curry is probably my favourite dish ever. But I am a carnivore at heart, so when a work lunch was scheduled to take place at Bodean’s BBQ, I salivated at the mere thought...
