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. Usually at a place like this, the food is eh. But here to food was really quite good. I was impressed with the ribs and my wife's salad was great to.... More

Well it was a long way to drive from Tempe, but my Mom wanted to go to Dillions by the Wildlife zoo. In the restaurant, there are huge fish tanks with fish, sharks, manta rays etc... Very nice. Also when you go outside there are other animals, and birds like cranes, storks etc... This was very nice for the family... More

The overall atmosphere was awesome being attached to the zoo and having flamingos right next to the outside seating. Also all the aquariums were a fun sight to see inside. The food was pretty good. Only reason I gave 4 stars was it was slow and our server still took a while. It is more like a 4.5 star though.... More

I love Dillon's BBQ but I had never been to this location. It's located at Wildlife World Zoo, just outside so you don't get charged for a zoo visit. Because it's at the zoo, the restaurant is built around a shark tank so you get to see ocean life while you eat your dinner. I always order the burnt ends... More

Great food and even greater service! We were very pleasantly surprised that a restaurant inside a zoo would be this good! They also have a gluten free menu - which I really appreciate. The prices are reasonable considering the amount and quality of food. Great ambiance too! You do not have to pay to enter the zoo to eat here... More

We ate with our extended family here for dinner. It was nice to have a place that was fun for the kids, while having a decent selection for the adults for dinner. The aquarium was very cool, we checked that out before and after dinner and could see it from our table as well. The food was pretty good, but... More

We had been at the Wildlife World Zoo, (this Dillon's is at the zoo) and decided to get out of the heat and eat lunch here. I had been told by many friends, the food is great and the view is awesome. We ended up with a table right next to the aquarium, (which was not hard to get to... More

Visited Wildlife World Zoo and Aquarium in late January, and, afterwards, dined with the sharks at Dillon’s. We were there last year, and I wondered if the pork baby-back ribs would be as good as before. Yes, they were! The steak fries and BBQ baked beans were delicious too. It’s a convenient and comfortable place to eat after a long... More

Stopped here before going in to the zoo. The burger was dry and without taste, the beans were salty and the fries were limp and oily. My wife's meal was no better. Everyone seems to like the BBQ at Dillons, maybe that is where we went wrong.
