There are a number of Dillon's across the valley. The one on Thunderbird is one of the first. There is one on the pier at Lake Pleasant--small, but good food. Our favorite is the one on Northern Avenue near hwy. 303. This is located by the Wildlife World Zoo. The dining area is surrounded by a huge aquarium. The menu... More

This is our favorite restaurant in Sun City. Portions are large, servers are efficient and friendly, and the food is great. We've never had a bad meal.

If you like BBQ, you'll enjoy Dillon's. While I haven't had the opportunity to eat at their lakefront property, I do frequent their location in Glendale on 59th just North of the 101. They do a good job and they have quite a seleciton of none bbq's items.

It's not often you find a place that has a good atmosphere, good food, and you can get to it by BOAT in the desert! It was the first time we had our boat in the water since October of last year. Since this restaurant is located at Lake Pleasant, is accessible via car, AND the weather was beautiful, it... More

Dillon's is a bit off the normal dinning path and will cost one an entrance fee to the state park. However, dinning on Lake Pleasant in the middle of the desert is a treat. Food is plentiful, tasty, and at a descent price. Tried their Ribs, Burgers, Fish and Wings all of which were tasty and cooked to perfection. The... More

It is a great staple of the neighborhood. Best appetizer: Onion Rings, crispy, tasty and light. Barbecue, cole slaw and beans all good food, altho a little salty for my taste. Priced right. Consistently good food. Count on the bar to be full in the evenings, great mugs of beers and ales; sports on the TV. Good family restaurant. You... More
