The menu includes slow-smoked pork spareribs ($ 18.99–23.99); a country-fried steak platter with housemade cream gravy, coleslaw, and mashed potatoes ($ 13.79); and a creamed spinach and artichoke heart enchilada platter with southwestern sauce, tortilla chips, and salsa ($ 13.49).
For the location of the first Dillon’s Restaurant, 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 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.
