When we are on this side of town always try to stop here - love eating the lounge with the locals and watching the sports events. The food is always plentiful and reliable and the service excellent. My husband loves their BBQ items while I like their sandwich menu. Excellent food for the price.

We've been going to Dillons for years. It is always consistently good. A fun place for lunch or dinner or happy hour with friends. Their BBQ is amazing. Love it.

I was so looking forward to a good barbeque dinner at Dillon's, however was seriously disappointed. Have been here several times and enjoyed the food, atmosphere and service. It may have been the 'busy season', but to me that is no excuse. The atmosphere was out on leave, the service slow and not pleasant, and the Q was dry and... More

Went to Dillon's to watch a UFC fight with the family. Nothing was bad really just very crowded as it usually is during a UFC fight. The staff was basically friendly, one or 2 weren't. A little expensive for a family of 5. The food was good which makes it worth it. May come back again in the future.

My husband and I took our 3 teenaged boys to this Dillion's location for dinner and to watch the UFC fights. We sat in the side room, attached to the bar area. We could easily view the fights on the multiple TVs. The service was attentive and quick, the food was good and they allowed us to occupy a large... More

My husband and I decided to go to Dillon's as a last minute thing. We had gone to sign the papers on our home, and went to Dillon's to celebrate. They were very busy, but it only took minutes for us to be seated. We started out with onion rings as our appetizer. This is the one staple we order... More

Returned to Dillon's for dinner with wife. We ordered 3 meats create platter. The quality of the meat was not up to standard. We also ordered a brownie for desert in which wasn't heated much and was pretty hard. We have eaten here plenty of times but this is one of the first times we were not fully satisfied.

We went with friends. It had been years, but the high standards have been maintained. The meat was perfect and the sides were not an after thought but excellent in themselves. The service was flawless.
