Big Easy Kings Road

These guys don't mess about. With a BBQ philosophy cooked up straight from the Deep South of America, it's all meat on steroids here where slow smoked is the name of the game and the portions come 'Blowout' size. We'd suggest going down on a Monday for a slice of the 'Big Pig Gig' - that's limitless BBQ (and yes, that includes RIBS). 

Porky's Bankside

Meaty ribs is the name of the game at Porky's Bankside. Just moments from Southwark Bridge, you could be transported to Memphis, bringing the best in ribs, burgers and pulled pork all cooked via specially imported smokers. To wash it all down, they offer an impressive array of cocktails, craft beers and whiskeys.

Blues Kitchen Shoreditch

Now, it has to be said ribs aren't the only show stopper at this juicy joint. Bringing ashore all manner of Texan feasts, Blues Kitchen cooks up quite the array of Southern American style foods. But, their St Louis Pork Ribs in particular are slow cooked for 12 hours of mouth watering taste sensation and come part of that heart-stopping platter. 

The Diner Soho

Harking back to a classic 1950s American diner set-up, The Diner serves an all-American selection of pancakes, burgers and hot-dogs - but don't overlook the ribs! Twice-cooked and loaded up next to fries and slaw, these delicious St. Louis baby back ribs are best enjoyed with something from their exhaustive beer or boozy shake drinks menu.

Ceviche Soho

Changing things up a bit with a piece of Peruvian kitchen perfection, Ceviche come to town armed with pisco, sizzling grilled goods and a spice of chicha (that's cheeky to you and I). Ribs go exotic here. It's the Costillas Chifa that have caught our tastebuds: baby back pork ribs covered with pineapple, amarillo chilli, soy sauce, limo chilli and spring onions.

Champions in the pitt and the cue, this gluttonous gaff has gone from street food hero to restaurant A-lister and legend in London for its hardcore BBQ goods. Hotbox is certified smokin' when it comes to meaty morsels and with their own house recipe glazes, you can go big with their 20 Oz Black Angus Beef Ribs, or go hot-hot with their Scotch Bonnet Glazed Pork Ribs. 

Red Dog South

Not only are these chaps masters of the pitt-cue combo, but they're also undisputed killers when it comes to rid-onkulous food challenges. Prepare to completely engorge yourself in meaty madness with the Red Dog ruling of 16 hour smoking. There's no turning back here - their ribs are supersize and super good.
