Outstanding BBQ and Italian Too!

You wouldn't think a place that touts itself as being both BBQ and Italian would be good at both, but Bomb Bomb really is. The barbecue ribs and chicken were done to perfection and the seafood fra diavolo is out of this world. It's a small little neighborhood place with some interesting history to... read more

When my brother-in-law took us to this restaurant as one of his favourites, I firstly couldn't figure out what it is so special about this tiny place in between nowhere. The homemade Italian food served by most friendly lady answered all the questions. It's a very local and friendly restaurant, serving only homemade authentic Italian food, which was to die... More

I saw this restaurant on Tripadvisor and decided to give it a try. I had the half ribs lunch special with spicy barbecue sauce. They were very tasty. The meat fell off the bone and there was very little fat. My mom had the chicken parm sandwich. She loved it. It was obviously home made. Would definitely go again.

Friendly people take care of you. Starters were very good and the ribs out of sight. It's best to take a taxi there nowhere to park

This South Philly fixture lives up to being a great place for crabs, seafood, and old fashioned pasta dishes with gray/ I have had the crab cakes, just like Maryland style. The Ribs here are fantastic as well as the chicken. There is a full service bar and they have their own Larger on Tap. Service is family friendly. On... More

I have been hearing my SIL and BIL rave about Bomb Bomb forever so I was really thrilled when we had dinner there during my Christmas visit to Philadelphia. We'd just seen the movie, 10th and Wolf that was set in this South Philly neighborhood (the it was filmed in Pittsburgh), so that led to even more fun! Though I... More

Found this using the trip advisor app for nearby BBQ places. I was pleasantly surprised by my experience here. The lady working the bar was very funny, and interactive with the table. She told me the story about the name Bomb Bomb...and I will leave you to go there to find out why it's called that. I got the pulled... More

All you need for a real South Philly dining experience is the Bomb Bomb. We live in South Philly, very near the trendy hip E. Passyunck section. We like our neighborhood, but for us it is well worth it to walk the extra few blocks and eat at Bomb Bomb. No pretense, and wonderful food. I love the seafood linguine... More
