My husband and I love bbq and we really enjoyed their brisket, burnt ends and ribs. We would definitely be returning. Also, our waiter Timothy was awesome. He was very attentive. Great job Timothy!

Heard it was the place to go for ribs, and it was. Noce service folks. Good onion rings too, as long as they cook them well.

So, I am a frequent Dillon's visitor, and from time stray from our Local one at the World life Zoo. So we ventured out to visit this location that I have not been at in several years. Love the Rabbit's on the grass outside! :-)...More

The food is good at Dillon's. The portions are very large. The prices seem too high for what you get. But, they charge it and we paid it. $13 for a Taco Salad. The onion rings are good. Nice way to start a meal.

Same great food as all Dillon's locations. Service was excellent. Thunderbird Road location our closest but least favorite. Location and general atmosphere of facility appears to draw a lower volume of clientele than their other locations. Much lower energy. Allowed for immediate seating and a...More

I had never been to this location before but had enjoyed the one on 59th many years ago. I'd forgotten just how good it really is. The menu is quite varied & most of the dishes are made in-house, including a delicious prickly pear salad...More

We get wings when we go... haven't had dessert yet. The food is good so I'm sure their deserts are as well.

Yes they do. Their menu has a page of "gluten friendly" items. I can not post the website, but you can search and view the items online.
