The Big Smoke is full of interesting eateries and foodies looking for authentic flavours from across the pond will find just the thing in a rather unique location. Chicago Rib Shack can be found under the arches just outside Clapham High Street train station. They know a thing or two about ribs and have become known as one of the top places to eat in London for meat lovers.
While they might have a few more restaurants than when they started out in 1982, the indie chain has gained a loyal following of BBQ fans in London. Thankfully, Chicago Rib Shack’s Aldgate branch is easily one of the more conveniently located restaurants in London. Diners looking for a relaxing meal after work need only hop off at Clapham North tube station. Visitors will also find easy access from central London and can take the northern line down to Clapham.
Tucked away under the arch, Chicago Rib Shack can easily be missed whilst walking out of the train station. It’s one of the cosiest London restaurants, offering a laidback charm that’s typical of traditional BBQ joints in America. Diners will find plenty of space to eat with friends and family, with cosy booths and outdoor seating for al fresco dining. After one bite, diners will surely agree that the eatery is well worth seeking out.
Meat lovers are in good company at Chicago Rib Shack. They’ll find a host of classics such as burgers, pulled pork and more. While many American restaurants may claim to be authentic, none go to the lengths they do it get it right. BBQ fans shouldn’t miss their ribs, which are infused with applewood smoke, treated to their signature rub and smoked for at least eight hours to ensure they’re fall-apart tender.
