Lombardi's is a classic. You can stop to pick up for a picnic or eat in their outdoor area. All of the BBQ standards are excellent, but those in the know order the hamburger. It's fabulous.

I have been to this place many times. I enjoy there sandwiches and the different cheeses they come up with. There is a Horseradish cheddar that is pretty good. I have not tried the tri tips that are being smoked out front, but, if they taste anything close to how the aroma in the parking lot dictates... they must be... More

This place is amazing, bring your vegan friends and make them feel uber awkward as you smash half a pigs rib set... I have eaten a lot of carnivorous meals in my time but this place is a Beacon of awesomeness.... Everytime I'm in town for work.. I'm here.. And absolute must..

Visited Lombardi's for a lunch BBQ sandwich with my wife on the weekend. Since the restaurant had very good ratings from others, I was expecting to be impressed. I wasn't. In fact there was very little BBQ taste from the brisket sandwich we both had. My wife and I were amazed at the total lack of taste of the micro-wave... More

We used to stop here for the baby back ribs, but I now think they are over-cooked and tough, so we go elsewhere. BBQ chicken s ok, potato salad is OK, Lombardi's is a high volume traffic place, the food is ok and there are good deals to be had.

I have been coming to this restaurant since I was younger. I've always loved their tri-tip sandwiches. The people here are always friendly, and the food is always fresh. The have a large selection of drinks, chips, and even candies. Love this place.

The bbq tri-tip is bomb. Every time I make it to Petaluma I'm sure to get a half pound tri-tip with swiss. They might have other great food but I will never know ;)
