Barbecue you'll love

Went for lunch with friends on Friday. No problem getting a table. Service was quick and efficient. Atmosphere was a little loud but still able to talk. Barbecued brisket sandwich had lots of meat, good value. Steak fries were good as well. Overall good lunch at a fair price.

Dillion's is my favorite when I crave BBQ, especially their Pulled Pork sandwich or the Pulled Pork Platter. The sides are excellent as well, especially the french fries, the baked beans or the mac and cheese.

Great food & very close to Value Place. I think they have entertainment on the weekend's too. Appetizers are really good too.

Dinner at Dillon's was wonderful, they were able to sit all ten of us quickly with out a reservation and from the smallest one year old to the oldest.....me.... all enjoyed the delicious savory dishes. Not one of our group didn't enjoy the food, the staff and the price.

OK it's been about 8 months since we ate at Dillon's in Peoria. Back then the service was very good, servers were on top of their game, our table order was served at the same time and we were given utensils to eat with. Have I been too subtle? To make it even worse the St. Louis ribs I ordered... More
