I love Dillon's BBQ! It is a comfortable and friendly establishment with excellent food, low prices, and cold beer. It's ideal for families or friends. Having lived in Kansas City, I don't think of it as KC BBQ, but that doesn't matter because the food is still outstanding. Be sure sure and order the onion rings for only $2.00.

Good brq , cute place with a bird area where you and watch all kinds of birds . quiet place to eat and visit with family and friends. Have eaten there often when I come to AZ. A little pricy.

The food is delicious, my husband particularly likes the burnt ends and I enjoy the smoked platter. The ambiance isn't very upscale, but the service is pretty good. Go there for the food. It's some of the best barbecue in Phoenix!

Very good food with portions large enough to share. A great restaurant right off the 101 on Thunderbird - easy access and no congestion with mall traffic. Waitress did a superb job!

Closest thing to a good old-fashioned restaurant in the Phoenix area. Dillon's has great food and service. I enjoy the Midwestern hot beef, with piled-high smoky brisquet and real mashed potatoes. On Saturday nights at the Peoria location they usually serve fresh green beans as their veggie of the day, and they are awesome, prepared with red onions and bacon.... More

The feel of a mom and pop restaurant. Watch for groupon's for up to 50% off. Two in the west valley. Food is great, service is OK, and they feed you well. Try the $1 Onion Rings. Place has been in the west valley for decades.

After boycotting Dillion's because of their very loud music we gave it another try several months ago. We have been there 3 or 4 times since with friends or family. Each time we have been very pleased with not only the food but the service has been excellent. The wait staff is friendly and attentive but not annoying. It seems... More
