AMERICAN Home Cooking



Boondocks on City Road follows in the footsteps of its little sister restaurant, Stax Diner, which has been one of the many hits in the revamped Kingly Court, Soho. Fans of Stax will love Boondocks, which boasts a much bigger kitchen and floor space just moments away from Old Street Station.

The menu is expanded too, and offers all the favourite burgers, fried chicken, sides and milkshakes that built Stax's reputation as one of the most authentic American Diners in London, but also adds a substantial list of new Southern dishes, sides and desserts that offer a real taste of the Deep South.

Boondocks is grounded out in Appalachian Mountain Country.  Based on Chef Bea Vo's childhood experiences, the menu has all of Stax's iconic dishes and introduces some classic American dishes like Sloppy Joe's, Chicken Fried Steak, Fried Onion Blossom, and S'mores with homemade Graham crackers complete with a mini campfire brought to your table. Buttermilk Biscuits and Gravy, Cornbread, and Bea's Mac and Cheese are perfectly washed down with Moonshine Cocktails or a Baby Ruth Milkshake.

This is where you get to feel a little lost in the Boondocks--where you're transported to an old country shack, and made to feel oddly enough, at home.
