Once you get past the white-bricked facade, this restaurant feels like home. Maybe it's the subtle colors and decor that your mother would approve of, or possibly the quiet flames of the fireplace. Whatever it is, it sets an appropriate ambiance for the stick-to-your-ribs meal to come. Specializing in smoked and barbecued Iowa pork, this restaurant, though new, is enjoying a happy success. It serves freshly prepared dishes for lunch and dinner: sandwiches, salads, ribs, turkey, chicken and of course, pork.
Took my Mother to Dillions in Peoria, AZ. for her birthday. Food was average at best, Ordered Onion rings to get started, 6 was all we got. I had the Brisket and I would much rather have Famous Daves'. My Mother had Fish that was OK. Service was terrible, Won't be headed that way anytime soon.
We had out of town guest come in today, for lunch we all agreed to have BBQ and the 1st place to come to mind was Dillon's. We had not eaten at Dillon's on Thunderbird since last early fall which at that time we got go service and food. What a surprise today; 3 of us got pulled pork sandwiches which the meat looked like it was cooked 2 weeks ago and was very dry, the other person got beef brisket sandwich which I would classify as being the same as ours in quality. For 4 people, our bill came to $50 including my coke and 2 iced teas plus a order of onion rings. I consider that we spent our money foolishly and will not go to a Dillon's again nor recommend it to anybody either. I do pulled pork at home a know that the meat is very juicy and not the junk that we were served today. The meat was molded and packed, put in a microwave and heated, the cold slaw was tasteless, the baked beans were ok, and the onion rings very good.
Bad, Bad, Bad
Today I called Dillon.s Restaurant on Thunderbird from Michigan to make reservations on Thanksgiving Day, like I have done for the past TEN Years. My wife and I have been eating Thanksgiving Day Dinner with my parents as a Thanksgiving Day tradition.
I called and was informed that they would olny take reservations for SIX People or More.
Shame on you at Dillions, when the couples in the area have been coming there for years, Like Me, only to be rejected.
A Family Tredition has been trashed, guess we will find another resturant in the area that will welcome our business.
Had the onion rings, the pulled pork platter with cajun bbq sauce, mashed potatoes with white gravy, baked beans, and had a pulled pork stew for an appetizer.
When I looked at the menu, I thought everything looked kinda small in the pictures. So I figured it would be no big deal getting through everything. The onion rings came out first, and they were great. I didn't have the fried mushrooms as I don't eat mushrooms, but my friend did and she loved them. My stew came out, and the bowl was bigger than I thought it would be. Most restaurants the bowls are small, but this was a good sized bowl. I can honestly say that the stew is the best thing I have eaten at a restaurant in the past couple years.
When the platter came out, it was much bigger than I expected. I also expected cheap dry mashed potatoes, but these were very good. The gravy was also great. The people I was with would not stop fawning over the baked beans which were also very good. One order of them came out not being hot, but they promptly rectified that with no issues, and apologized for it. The pulled pork was also very good.
I ended up not being able to finish everything, which just means I will have a great sandwich tomorrow for lunch. I can't recommend it highly enough, I just wish I had found out about it sooner.
My only complaint is that the flag in front of the building is falling apart, and needs to be replaced. The food and service itself was excellent.
So my girlfiriend and both of our families were in this past weekend for dinner. Where do I start, well the server took a half hour to get our drinks first off, then when we got our salads asked for more ranch that took an additional 20 min, then after waiting about another 30 min for our food. Then the prime rib that was served to me was well done after it was ordered medium rare, was sent back and brought back a much smaller piece that was 3/4 fat and bloody, still not right manager came over with a huge attitude and let her know what was going on and then she says hold on and didnt even ask to take off bill but brings another piece again half the size of the second one and says here ya go and walks away. By this time my family is done with their dinners and I am left with crappy piece of meat I would not feed to my dog and a 24.95 bill to boot for terrible service and terrible meal. There were other things that transpired that I wont mention as a waitress tried to take our change from bill as her tip and asked if we were waiting on something, then had to find a manager to get our change back...oh and there is more DO NOT EAT HERE YOU WILL BE SORRY....
My husband and I decided to give Dillon's a try after hearing many good reviews. We both decided on barbecue sandwiches, since I had heard that is what they are known for. I thought it was just me, but it wasn't. They were disgusting, and over-priced. The interior was dreadful. I didn't know barbecue could be so greasy and unappetizing. Our server failed to mention the $1 onion rings, but we over-heard her telling the table behind us after we had already placed our order. It is safe to say we will never go back. It's sad to see truly good barbecue businesses going out of business while this one remains open. We will make the drive to Laveen when we have another barbecue craving.
GREAT MEALS! Good Prices! Best Ribs anywhere, and the $1.00 Onion Rings are simply the BEST! I haven't been disappointed yet. We think it's the best BBQ place in Phoenix! Staff is wonderful, friendly and thoughtful! Give them a try! I think You'll LOVE them!
I LOVE DILLON'S!!! I live around the corner from the place and love everything about the place. The servers and managers are great, the food is phenomenal and ambiance of the place is right on the money. IF you're looking to get in and out of Dillon's in a nanosecond, don't go. You won't. It's always busy and, in today's economy (due to the fact that most of restaurants aren't running at full staff anymore), the service CAN be a bit on the slow side but very pleasant. One of my favorite dishes is the BBQ Beef Brisket platter. It comes with your choice of sauce (either Cajun or Sweet & Mild.....) and 2 sides. Personally I like my food with an extra bite to it and the Cajun sauce provides just that. I'm a big eater and I usually have to take a bit home with me. If you not a big meat eater, try the Spinach Enchilada Platter. You may be very surprised. The taste just Wow's me!! My only gripe with Dillon's in that it can get quite loud on the weekends due to the fact that they have live bands playing. Not that I'm opposed to bands (if I'm at a concert) but you won't be able to hear yourself think. I usually stay away on the weekends anyhow because you can't get into the parking lot. Anyhow, if you wanna go to a really good BBQ joint, give Dillon's a shot. You won't be disappointed.
I live right around the corner from Dillions and it is always busy! Why I do not know, My family and I have eaten there a couple of times. The first time it was very busy and the service and food were horrible. It took 35 minutes just to have anyone even come to our table after we were seated and then another 45 minutes until we had our food served. The ribs were burnt and almost unedible. The BBQ chicken was close to raw inside and the Tri-Tip was very dry. Cold rolls and frozen pads of butter...mmmmmm. A couple years later we said that we would give Dillions another chance. What a mistake the service and the food was not much better. I agree that the elderly love the place and get treated much better. I have heard elderly people say that they cannot even drive by the place as they are to tempted to go in. I do not get it!
In a large city like Phoenix, it is hard to find a restaurant the makes you feel like your at home. Everytime I have been in there the staff remembers me and calls me by name. That says alot, I have never been to a chain restaurant where the owner will sit down with you and chat. The food is wonderful, even my vegetarian brother found something he likes! Also the bands on the weekend are a nice touch. A great place to bring company from out of town.
