Bodean's is an authentic American BBQ restaurant serving large portions of steaks, racks of ribs and other American BBQ dishes. The American decor and atmosphere adds to the authenticity as does the friendly service.
As an American living in London, life can be tough if not impossible when you can't get quality BBQ food. Bodean's certainly helps rectify the situation.
