Dillon's has great ribs! This restaurant was originally a ranch-style house which was converted into a restaurant. It has many rooms, as you can imagine. It is a little pricey for us so I try to use a Groupon when we go. They also have several locations. The servings are quite large. The only thing I don't like is that... More

Casual, relaxed atmosphere, friendly, attentive servers, great food with a wide variety of options. We always enjoy Dillon's for eat-in or take-out.

We go to Dillon's about one time a month. The food and service is always exultant. The BBQ is very good and they also have a verity of non BBQ items on the menu. It is a very family friendly restaurant. I have been to three of there locations and the quality is the same at all of them.

sports bar atmosphere...not pretentious, you can wear whatever you want. Its pretty loud but good for large groups. Good BBQ for Phx area....better than most local BBQ I have had here. Attentive staff and did a fair job on our orders...good quantity of food. We will go back.

Stopped on a hot August day after baking on the lake for a few hours. Sat outside, protected from the sun, with a cool breeze off the lake, like heaven. We did have a couple of bevies and a quick appetizer, the Portobello spinach dip. It was excellent, very tasteful and hit the spot. We did review the balance of... More

Had the BBQ chicken, and some of the brisket. Really good, with choice of three BBQ sauces and sides as expected. Lots of other choices for those that like beef and the Tilapia looked good too. Only down side was it was Friday evening and the band was playing in the bar, not my kind of music.

This is one of our "go to" restaurants when we want a great meal for a good price. If you like onion rings you should really get at least two orders, at $2 for a half order, they are very affordable. I'm no BBQ expert but I do know I like theirs. We have been to both the Lake Pleasant... More

It's no secret that southerners take barbecue very seriously and we each think we know exactly what constitutes smoked perfection. We arrived without a reservation on a Thursday night with a crew of six hungry folks. We were seated immediately and wait staff was friendly, knowledgable, and quick. Atmosphere is relaxed and casual and tables aren't too close together, affording... More

Dillon's has several restaurants in the Phoenix area. Good BBQ. Location at the zoo in the West Valley is a good place for families because you can let the kids watch the awesome indoor aquarium or the flamingoes outside. Or go to Lake Pleasant and play in the water or watch the boats. But my favorite is still the original... More

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
