Dillon’s Restaurant began in 1998, when co-owner George Valverde approached Rich Dillon to partner together to bring reality to Valverde’s vision.
That vision has now produced 4 locations.The first Dillon’s restaurant opened in 1999 and is located on Thunderbird Rd. in Peoria. This location still has much of the original home style farm house ambiance from the early 1940’s. Entertainment includes a live band on Friday nights and UFC fights on Saturday nights.
Dillon’s Arrowhead, located at 59th Ave. and the 101, opened in 2005 serving the gorgeous community of Glendale. The bar and restaurant hosts a crowd of enthusiastic golfers and sports fans, entertained by a live band on Friday and Saturday nights. The Patriot Room at the Arrowhead location is Dillon's salute to military personnel, past and present.
In November 2011, Dillon's at Wild Life World Zoo opened. This unique site hosts a 50,000 gallon shark tank right in the dining room while vibrant pink flamingos entice you to sit on the patio to enjoy their beauty. After touring Wild Life World Zoo, a perfect end to your visit is filling your hungry group with Dillon’s famous Barbecue and more. But, FYI.... If you choose only to dine, there is no entry fee to eat at Dillon’s.
Dillon’s Bayou at Lake Pleasant, north of the valley, opened in January 2016. This oasis in the desert is a huge venue for water seeking friends who are looking to get away from the city norm, with minimal travel, and enjoy the water and mountains of Pleasant Harbor. Dillon's Bayou restaurant, bar and general store sits right on the lake. It is air conditioned and heated for your comfort, while serving award winning food and hospitality which has made Dillon’s famous.
Dillon's Bayou is perfect place to celebrate any large or small family or corporate event. And where else can you rent a boat, enjoy water skiing or fishing and Dillon’s BBQ you’ve been craving!
