I wanted to quickly report back on my experience at Bodeans BBQ last night on account of Thanksgiving. We managed to find a table at the last minute - even though it was pretty packed last night.
The restaurant advertised a £19.99 pp Thanksgiving dinner, which seemed okay to us. What they declined to mention was there was a two person minimum. Also, as we looked around, we realized portions were really meager for the supposedly special meal. Oh well.
We ended up ordering a 1/2 BBQ chicken with their special BBQ sauce, and a jerk chicken grilled burger, corn bread, potatoes with sour cream and chives.
I absolutely loved both the wife's BBQ as well as my jerk chicken! Well spiced and balanced. The jerk chicken burger was a real 'tear' jerker, it had embedded scotch bonnet peppers. Corn bread was so-so and a bit hard actually. It did not pass the wife's taste test, but then her family is from the (American) South.
I also had a French Martini, which missed the mark completely on all counts. I felt like there was hardly any vodka in it.
Total tab was £ 32.50 with 12.5% service charge included.
