Featuring local produce and locally sourced beef, Portabella Bar & Grill honors our area’s roots with a menu that celebrates the Santa Maria-style BBQ. The flagship item on our menu is, of course, the classic Tri-Tip Sandwich, perfectly seasoned with black pepper, salt, and garlic salt. Other popular menu items include the Roasted Garlic Bruschetta, Crispy Chicken Salad, Potato Skins, and French Toast.
