Good news - the staff was very attentive, polite, and lovely. Onion rings were good as the appy. I love that you have big rabbits and desert tortoises in the back pen and we got to watch them chow down on their lunch...so adorable. Bad news - ordered the brisket platter with mashed potatoes and cole slaw for sides. The... More

The onion rings are the best you will ever have and they are only $2. I like the burnt ends when they have them. Family likes the turkey and the brisket. Great service, great family atmosphere and great food. Highly recommend.

We have been to Dillon's several times! Each time we have been there we have to have their onion ring appetizer! They are some of the best onion rings around! My husband likes their brisket and I am a fan of the pulled pork! You can get either one plus others on a sandwich or a dinner platter! Depending on... More

I must say I love this restaurant! The BBQ is the best in the area. Their side dishes are yummy and so are the desserts. The first time we went we were given a free order of their appetizer onion rings just because it was our first time there. Great move because now we order them all the time.

I have been a customer at Dillon's for at least 10 years. We lived just around the corner on 91st Ave. We have moved since, but anytime we are in Peoria we stop and eat there or get some to take home. I have sampled many items on their menu and have never found anything less that perfection. Their desserts... More

Always delicious. Recommended the red devil pulled pork sandwich. Love the Cajun barbeque sauce. Never had a bad experience in all the years we have been coming here...regardless of the location we go to.

Good if you like barbecue, few other choices but they did have a veggie option. The burnt ends are good but not always available.

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!
