SquareMeal Review of Bodean's Balham
Since launching its original American BBQ joint in Soho in 2002, Bodean’s has grown and fans have come to associate its distinctive pink-neon pig sign with inexpensive down-home fun. Most of restaurants do both table service and take-out options, with the full selection of ribs, burgers, dogs and steaks to eat in, plus the addition of deli sandwiches (pastrami on rye, turkey BLT, et al) to go. Specialities from the smoke pits include whole slabs of baby back ribs, burnt ends and BBQ chicken. If you’re really hungry, go the whole ‘boss hog’ – a mighty plateful of ‘Jacob’s ladder’ beef rib, burnt ends, pulled pork, ribs, chicken thighs and smoked sausages for two, washed down with American beers and cocktails. Good deals abound, including movie and meal packages, loyalty cards and American sports nights.
