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

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
