this place feels like you've entered a Robert Altman movie. It's the type of place you'd take out of towners to get the feel of New Bedford. Diverse, chatty, and brimming with conversation. The fare is standard--nothing special, but it's always fresh and fast. The staff are friendly, and the neighborhood feel cannot be beat.

Busy little place, but still got served fast. Went to Dillon's for breakfast with friends, waited about 20 minutes for a table and we were served in 15 minutes after ordering, had a great breakfast on the cheap. Well worth it.

Had a nice breakfast at Dillon's. The place was very busy. Cathy our server was terrific, very attentive, not overbearing. She knew we needed things before I needed to ask and kept the coffee filled. Had a linguica and egg on a cheese roll with hash browns, yummy!

I met my son for lunch here. This was the first time trying the place. I had lunch and he had breakfast. Service was quick and friendly. I know people who come here every day for breakfast and I can see why. The prices are good. My cheeseburger was nothing special. It was about 6 ounces and not a bit... More

It had been since 1985 since I entered this building. Then it was Goggins Variety and Spa, and it was a hangout and breakfast & lunch place for neighbor's, mailmen, kids from Holy Family High School. Well I had heard about Dillions from a number of people, so I decided to take a trip back in time to Goggins.... I... More

A small place with friendly staff. The food is made to order right out in the open. I am a pretty picky eater and have never had a complaint about the food. The prices are great, not like these other places out there. Any breakfast food you want at your request. Coffee hot or ice. The only thing I would... More

I have been going here for years and they are always busy but the wait is never very long. It is a small place with tables for 2, 4 or 8 people along with a counter with stools. The cook has been there over 20 years and he cooks to please. Service is great, they are nice with kids and... More
