The four Dillon's locations couldn't be more different. The first location, which opened in 1999, was once described as "a cute, converted old house that looks like grandma's parlor" by the Phoenix New Times. There, guests devour Kansas City–style barbecue slathered in housemade sauces and listen to live music on Fridays and Saturdays. The combination of good food and relaxed ambiance proved to be so successful that Dillon's opened a second location in Glendale in 2005. This one plays host to golfers and sports enthusiasts, entertaining them with 30 HD-TVs, as well as with live bands on the weekends.
The year 2009 saw Dillon's expanding to Scorpion Bay at Lake Pleasant, where guests can drive their boats or harnessed lochness monsters right up to the restaurant, bar, and general store and sit for a leisurely meal or grab supplies to go. In 2011, Dillon's opened perhaps its most impressive location at the Wild Life World Zoo. Here, guests can dine beside a 60,000 gallon shark tank in the dining room and vibrant pink flamingoes on the patio.
In addition to its unique settings and food, Dillon's is known for its hospitality and sense of fun, including setting up live webcams of its Scorpion Bay and zoo locations. Check them out here and here. Dillon's particularly likes getting photos of customers enjoying the restaurants on Facebook.
