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.

There are several Dillon's KC BBQ locations in the greater Phoenix area, and the one at the World Wildlife Zoo (just off the 303 at Northern) is awesome! First, it is at the zoo (not the Phoenix Zoo), but it has a separate entrance so you don't have to pay the zoo admission fee if you only want to eat... More

We checked in and the hostess asked if we wanted the shark, albino alligator or flamingo room. Pardon me? We picked the shark tank room which was great. The alligator is in the bar and the flamingos were outside, so were the smokers. Our server Zoe could not have been nicer. We told her it was our first time and... More

We find our selfs always a little disappoint after we are done with out meal. The shark tank or flamingos on the patio is always entertaining to eat by. They have really good BBQ which is always enjoyable. We personably have not been able to find a side dish that we enjoy. I wish they had a few healthier options... More

Hi there, Thank you for taking the time to write a review, we are sorry to hear that you haven't found a side that you like. We always have a veggie of the day, or you could do a salad. I personally love our mashed potatoes(not the healthiest, but not horrible) and get them without gravy! Hope This Helps, Keli... More

This BBQ restaurant is just like other BBQ restaurants with similar tastes. What sets this one apart from the others is the giant shark tank that you look at while enjoying your meal. The food is very good and tasty with three different BBQ sauces you can put on your food. The service was quick and friendly. The waitress even... More

We are here while at the zoo and aquarium. You can enter right from the zoo or on the outside. Seemed to have a good selection of food and drinks. They have an outdoor patio that is next to the flamingo exhibit, as well as inside viewing access to the white alligator which were both cool. Staff were super friendly... More

Dillons Barbecue restaurant was excellent. It’s location right next to the flamingo enclosure also provided some entertainment, although the aroma was not a plus. We had several barbecue dishes in our party, and all were very good. My wife and I split a barbecue order and had plenty for our lunch.

The kids loved this place for the flamingos. We were right next to them for lunch. The birds were so interesting to watch. It was a great experience! The food was also very good.

This was the perfect place to bring our daughter for dinner after a long road trip. She loved the sharks and it definitely kept her entertained while we ate.
