For the location of the first Dillon's, Rich Dillon and George Valverde chose a 1940s Thunderbird Road structure that a writer for the Phoenix New Times described as "a cute, converted old house that looks like grandma's parlor." Since then, they've opened four more eateries in locations that are as appealing as the signature flame-kissed and slow-smoked meats served inside. Wildlife World Zoo & Aquarium's shark tank flanks the dining room of Dillon's at the Wildlife World Zoo, and the boat-accessible Scorpion Bay location opens onto the waters of Lake Pleasant so that diners can chortle as fish attempt to develop democracy. Live music and karaoke lend additional social vibes to the smokehouses.
As the restaurant's name might suggest, the chefs at Shane's Rib Shack take their dedication to rib-sticking food seriously. It's what drove them to craft a menu loaded with sauce-slathered ribs, pulled pork, and chicken along with salads and homestyle sides such as mac ‘n’ cheese, Brunswick stew, and fried okra. In addition to heaping plates with hearty food, chefs also take dietary needs into account via a menu of gluten-free options.
Diners will not be stuck in the pits when they visit Thee Pitts Again. This family-owned establishment has been serving up southern mesquite barbecue dishes since 1979 and has won over 300 international barbecue competitions. Take your time and dig into the naturally smoked meat that spends up to 20 hours in their custom smoker. Host your party or gathering with savory beef brisket, or call up Thee Pitts Again for a custom pig roast! Since they are open every day of the week, there is no excuse not to try the pulled pork sandwich, breaded pork tenderloin or boneless beef short ribs. Thee Pitts Again does take reservations but offers delivery and takeout as well. Get digging until you find barbecue gold at Thee Pitts Again!
