I love all the Dillon's restaurants. Great service, food and a fun atmosphere! They've added more parking spaces which makes a huge difference!

You have to try the Chicken Fried Chicken at this place. It's enough for 2 or eat half and take the rest home. It is SO good. The spinach enchiladas are pretty amazing too!

Really good B-B-Que and other offerings. Parking has been a nightmare for a long time but recently there was some new access to heavily traveled Thunderbird Road.

Had the 1/2 & 1/2 soup and sandwich. Brisket sandwich was excellent. Broc and cheese soup sucks. Leave out the extra crap and just make it with what it's called. Wanna really good experience, get a Groupon for $15-$19 (depending on your own discount up to 25%) and get $30 worth of food and drink. Coupon good at any location.

No complaints but I prefer Rudy's. Great service, food was good. It just didn't blow me away. I had the pulled chicken and my husband had the pulled pork sandwich. Both were good.

We get to Dillon's a couple of times a year. It's a good family place with good BBQ and hearty plates. Plenty of paper towels on the tables to wipe off those saucy fingers. It's consistently good, but be sure to get reservations on St. Patrick's Day (yes, theres green beer) and other busy days. The onion rings are the... More
