Bodean's, Balham High Road, south London

A transplant from small town America, Bodean's is a glorified rib shack offering generous portions of high cholesterol food at keenish prices - a bountiful 16oz beef burger with fries is £13, while a whole slab of baby back ribs is £16. The fare is surprisingly tasty and the Balham branch can be almost full early on a Sunday evening. Be careful how much you order, as you can easily end up stuffed to the gills. Service by the young staff is good natured, the seats are comfortable and there will probably be American Football or baseball on the telly.  A well-orchestrated celebration of America's red meat-eating cowboy culture, Bodean's is a fun place to take the kids. 7/10
