Fun, informative, tasty, and irreverent tour. On-line booking was easy and started on time at the Hampton Inn. Our guide, Lance is one of a kind. He has an opinionated and funny story about anything that may come up during a conversation. The first part of the tour we walked to various BBQ establishments on or around Beale St. Since... More

The places Debbie took us to were interesting and varied. A great smattering of local history. We got the real atmosphere of Memphis. It was a really friendly tour and we could not recommend it more highly.

We chose this tour because we wanted to sample Memphis food while at the same time learn about the history. Our guide, Lance, is very knowledgeable on both counts. I appreciated the old fashioned phosphate sodas, grease burgers, BBQ nachos, Mac and cheese, desserts, and tamales. The portions are actually a bit much: I couldn't even sample the last item...

Loved our tour with Deb and would do it again!! Chef Deb knows everyone, knows all the great places to go and loved we got a history lesson as well. The walk was so nice and organized and of course the food was amazing!! We got a great mix of "upscale" desserts, locals only places and Elvis' favorite burger joint.... More

My friend and I were in a group with 4 others and lead by Debbie. She was a wealth of information about any topic, including good food. Each stop was unique and the food at each was very tasty - we were definitely full when we finished up!

I'll start off by admitting I have mixed feelings about the food tour. We did the Downtown Food Tour. The tour guide was excellent, and most of the food was good, but after it was all over and my husband and I were talking about the experience, we did feel a little bit disappointed. First, the positives: you definitely get... More

This tour is a 'must do' when in Memphis. Lance led our BBQ tasting tour. He was a wealth of knowledge about the city, it's history and the Memphis BBQ. His enthusiasm and love of Memphis was part of the reason we had such a great time. I could do it all again and cannot recommend this highly enough. You... More

My wife had taken this tour a couple years ago and enjoyed it immensely, so with both of us here this time we went together. The woman running the tour was an excellent talker.

We had so much fun on this tour! Not only did we learn a ton about Memphis BBQ but Lance was a fabulous historian - providing us with the history of Memphis from the Civil War to present day Memphis. I would highly recommend it - one of the best things we did while in Memphis! I'm still full.

We were so surprised at how much there was to learn about barbecue and the city of Memphis. Our guide was Lance. This man loves his job almost as much as he loves barbecue and Memphis. We visited 6 places, all were a good experience. We were able to meet some interesting and fine people on our tour. we had... More
