There is a new restaurant in town. You may remember the former, Cantina Lounge Mexican Bar and Grill, located by the California State University, Fullerton campus. Well, now it has gone from a Mexican cantina to the brand-new, Dillon’s Irish Bar and Grill, which is in the final steps of construction and should be opening soon.

The name is extremely common and you can probably find a Dillon’s Irish Bar and Grill in Los Angeles, Chino Hills, and other locations throughout the country. However, CSUF is finally getting their very own Irish bar and grill, which should draw a lot of interest from the college students. If you are interested in trying out your very first Irish restaurant then the food here is going to be quite amazing when it opens.

Like most Irish bar and grills, they will offer specialties like breakfast, lunch, dinner, coffee, and drinks. There will be a large amount of delicious appetizers to try from like Dillon’s chicken tenders, the Dillon’s platter, and Dillon’s mac and cheese sliders. Try their sandwiches and wraps like Dillon’s pulled pork, the steak sandwich, or the Buffalo chicken wrap.

If you are in the mood for something straight off the grill how about taking a bite out of their turkey burger, BBQ bacon cheeseburger, or Dillon’s mac n cheeseburger. If burgers do not suit your taste buds than you can try other entrees like the double cut pork chop, the bone-in rib eye, or the New York steak. You can enjoy your entrees with Irish sides like the house fries, beer battered onion rings, or garlic mashed potatoes.

Healthier alternatives that they offer are salads like the buffalo chicken salad, the BBQ chicken chopped salad, or the southwestern grilled chicken salad. Maybe you do not want a salad, so you could try their soups and stews like traditional Irish stew, Guinness stout chili, or tortilla soup. Some of the specialties they serve will include classic sheperherd’s pie, corned beef and cabbage, and fish and chips.

Dillon’s Irish Bar and Grill does not just offer Irish food, but you can get pasta and pizza options like chicken fetuccine, pepperoni pizza, or buffalo chicken pizza. Treat yourself to some dessert to end your meal with sweets like Irish bread pudding, brownies, or their deep dish cookie. Whether you are interested in trying Irish cuisine or you want to just go to one of the newest bar and grills in Fullerton, then come to Dillon’s Irish Bar and Grill when it opens soon.
