We got the Groupon and saved $11. Lots of types of barbecues. Smoked sausage was good, sides were good, ribs were GREAT. I liked my brisket tips well enough. The aquarium was perfect for my little kids.

We found this place quite by accident while traveling to our new home in AZ, it is next to the zoo. It is very impressive to have a round aquarium with sharks and stingrays swimming by.

Located within a zoo environment, this is an interesting place to stop for lunch or dinner. Inside there is a huge aquarium and outside a group of flamingos. There is a fairly good selection of menu items. I tried the fried catfish dinner and was quite satisfied. There is a full bar but the place is quite kid-friendly.

This was a fun place to eat and the kids enjoyed being seated close to the fish tank and watching them while we ate. The service was great and the food was really good as well!

Always enjoy the BBQ at Dillons, but again, the second time, the loaded mashed potatoes were luke warm at best. Very disappointed since the last time I was there the same thing happened. Hey management! Listen up, I informed the server both times, what is the problem?

Dinner for four after zoo visit. All had either burnt ends or brisket with different sides. No big complaints. Good service and waitress. Price not too bad girls each had a glass of beer special only $2.50. Would go back to a Dillions.

Spent the day at the zoo and had lunch at Dillon's before leaving. Food is always good and kid friendly. You can sit in the dining room and watch the sharks and fish swim by, or they also have a full service bar and patio. Staff is friendly and would highly recommend

This was a great spot. Not too long of a wait. The brontasaurus ribs were HUGE!! The wildlife zoo was a great way to get an appetite.
