We drive 30 miles to eat at Dillon's BBQ at least once a month. It's the best in the Valley. Love the beef platter, beans, and the potato salad for desert. It's to die for.

Our food was very good beginning with the homemade onion rings for $2. What a great value. The atmosphere is homey and the service was excellent.

Very good BBQ. You will not be disappointed if you got to Dillon's. The food is always good and the service is the same. I have been here with a big groups and a few others and you still get good service.

Excellent flavor and the catfish is amazing! I always seem to order the prime rib, it's seasoned perfectly and as tender as can be!!! I got the pulled pork one time and it to was so tender! My friends ordered the Burnt Ends and said they were the best they had ever had!

Our party had a variety of meals. The pulled pork sandwich, prime rib, burger and chicken fried steak were all good. The cat fish platter was average which the fish had alot of mud veins in it and the beef brisket was a little dry. The fried dill pickles were good. The service was good. The building could use a...

Wonderful family restaurant with many classic BBQ dishes. I worked down the street from Dillon's and had many lunches and dinners there. The service is always very good and the quality of the food is excellent.

We heard about this place, though it was a "department store" of same name. After a long day of bike riding, we decided to try this olace out. Great service and very short wait. Good news stopped there. Interior is dimly lit, probably for ambience and to keep the temperature regulated. VERY NOISY!, indicative of too many people waiting for... More

Some of the best BBQ in the area, but not comparable to Texas. If you're in Portland Or. Busters BBQ is as good or better than Texas BBQ....and the owner is from Houston.
