There are several Dillon's KC BBQ locations in the greater Phoenix area, and the one at the World Wildlife Zoo (just off the 303 at Northern) is awesome! First, it is at the zoo (not the Phoenix Zoo), but it has a separate entrance so...More

Do you allow dogs inside or on the outdoor patio. ? I have a little 6 lb. Yorkie companion dog (he has his credentials). He is very well behaved and I carry him in a kangaroo type pouch. We want to come Sunday afternoon.

They have the patio next to the bar and outdoor flamingo area that can probably allow dogs. You should call them to make sure..
