Headed out and looking for one of the best places for American food in East London? There's no name better than Blues Kitchen. Heralded not only for their unique and quirky interiors, their restaurant is a space for crocodile bites, macaroni cheese and serious rib action, all before headed to the dance floor for the ultimate in blues bangers. 

Meat & Shake Tooting

Struggling to find a decent casual dining spot in South London. Fear not, the team at Meat & Shake are here to help. The venue has made a name for itself by serving fine cuts of seasoned halal meat. Whether you chewing your way through a huge, sauce slather steak, chomping into succulent brisket or tucking into a hearty burger, this venue is sure to leave a positive mark on you. The venue's sister restaurant of the same name is based in Ealing and offers the same great experience for West London's foodies to enjoy.

Porky's Bankside

4 user reviews 4

If you're craving some seriously good BBQ food, you don't need to book a flight to Memphis. Hop on the train to Southwark, where Porky's offers all your American goodness just moments from the Thames. Blues, country and rock'n'roll are on the speakers, whiskey and cocktails are in the glasses and hearty, meaty BBQ food is in the kitchen.

Big Easy Canary Wharf

2 user reviews 5

Big Easy Canary Wharf is about as American as it gets, with a kitchen serving up authentic BBQ food and all the fresh seafood you can handle. But it doesn't stop there: you'll get even more southern vibes once you head into the Rum Lounge, where you'll get live music and cocktails aplenty. If you're based further west then be sure to check out their Kings Road branch as well.
