Here at Eating London, we love an American Diner. With everything from Burgers and Buffalo Wings to French Toast and Ice Cream Floats on offer, eating out just doesn’t get better than this! But with so many tasty American Diners to be found, deciding which one to visit can be difficult. We thought that it was about time we tasted our way across the capital and brought you our guide to the best American Diners in London. So next time you’re in London, make sure that you follow our handy guide and remember to let us know your favourites…

Dirty Bones

20 Kensington Church St, London W8 4EP

Located in Kensington, Dirty Bones has to be the funkiest American Diner in London. This subterranean eatery just oozes cool, from its old-skool game stations and neon lights to its impressive cocktail collection and adventurous menu, at Dirty Bones there promises to be something for everyone! During your visit, why not tuck in to the Burger Dog accompanied by some Triple Cooked Fries or Dirty Bone’s Spicy Fried Chicken alongside some classic Mac & Cheese? Whatever you decide, make sure that you leave some room for dessert – with Milk & Cookies on offer, it would be rude not too!

Red Dog Saloon

Red Dog Saloon

37 Hoxton Square, London N1 6NN & 27-31 Bedford Road, London SW4 7SH

Do you fancy some authentic American barbecue? Then take a trip to the Red Dog Saloon! With its original fire pits, array of award-winning food and welcoming Texan charm, you’ll think that you’ve just been transported to the Deep South. Choose from their selection of fat ‘n juicy Burgers, Slow Roasted Meats, Southern Fried Chicken and scrumptious sides or if you’re feeling brave tuck into The Devastator Challenge! You’ll be given just 10 minutes to defeat Red Dog Saloon’s huge meat-packed burger, fistfuls of fries and coleslaw, along with a mammoth milkshake – go on, we dare you!


The Piazza, Covent Garden, London WC2E 8BE

Just across the street from Covent Garden market is Roadhouse – one of London’s quirkiest American Diners! It might have an incredible menu bursting with American classics including mouth-watering Burgers, Steaks and Dogs but the Roadhouse is certainly not your average restaurant. Aside from its selection of American classics, this lively venue offers plenty to keep you entertained after your meal… You can get up on stage and belt out some Rockaoke, watch the world-famous battle of the flair bartenders or boogie the hours away to the late night DJ. What’s not to love? Whether you’re looking for a tasty meal or just a good time, make sure you stop by the Roadhouse.


The Diner

Various locations across London

If you’re looking to sink your teeth into some of America’s most loved dishes, then make sure that The Diner is your first stop. With 7 restaurants nestled across the capital offering Breakfast, Brunch and Dinner – you’ll be spoilt for choice!  At The Diner, you can indulge in everything from Banana Pancakes and French Toast to Philly Cheese Steak and Corn Beef Hash but I highly recommend washing it all down with a delicious Peanut Butter Shake. What’s better yet? You can even get The Diner’s dishes delivered straight to your door – that’s your rainy Saturday night sorted!

Next time you’re in London and looking for your American food fix, make sure that you stop by one of these delectable diners – we promise that you won’t be disappointed!
