Memphis was a great meeting point for us with our cousins who were taking a summer road trip. None of us had ever been to Memphis, and all of us being baby boomers, we decided going to Graceland and the Memphis area seemed a likely and appropriate area to meet. While checking through TripAdvisor, I came across some reviews for... More

We thought this was a great tour. Had been to Memphis before and was looking for something to do other than Elvis and the ducks. Loved Debbie and loved her willingness to share her knowledge. The food was great and we were stuffed by the time it was over. She also was able to give us recommendations for the rest... More

The Taste of Downtown tour was fun & delicious... we visited 6 Memphis restaurants including spots on Beale and Main Streets (all easily walkable). From burger joints to higher-end eateries (plus the best BBQ nachos I've ever had), our guide Debbie kept us entertained and informed. Highly recommend... come hungry!

I really enjoyed the taste of downtown food tour! I am from Memphis and have lived here my whole life, and still learned a lot about the downtown area that I didn't know. The tour is both educational and entertaining. All of the food was delicious and we ate a lot! Go hungry! Our tour guide, Debbie, did a great... More

The Tastin' Round BBQ Tour with our guide Lance was great. We visited 6 different BBQ eateries (2 on Beale St.) and all served delicious BBQ. You sample a little at each place, but you are full by the end of the tour. We had ribs in different styles, spaghetti, and even BBQ pork egg rolls. At the end of... More

It was such a hot day but we still enjoyed our tour! Loved the history and the different foods we sampled. Debbie was very informative and told us a lot about each stop we made. Enjoyed a tamale at Blue City Cafe, deep fried cheeseburger and home made fries at Dyers, scrumptious BBQ nachos at Alfreds, an old fashioned soda... More

Some of the best bbq I have ever had, but that is only the beginning. Lance will also treat you to an in depth history of bbq, and the techniques used, as well a a history of the city. Do yourself a favor...skip lunch and come hungry. Only warning is that tour may take more than the estimated 3.5 hrs... More

Stopped at 6 of the best BBQ places around, each unique from the others. We learned what makes each special and how everything relates to the culture and history of Memphis. Our tour ran late and we missed some of a baseball game we had tickets to but we didn't care, we were having a blast. The tour operator did... More

I came to Memphis solo as a spontaneous weekend getaway. I thought the food tour would be a great way to see a variety of Memphis, try some great food and have some fun with other folks. Unfortunately, this was a four hour lecture with some food thrown in. Our guide Lance talked nonstop the whole time. He's very knowledgable... More

If you are not familiar with the variety of foods offered by restaurants on Beale or Main Streets in Memphis, and you have three hours in the afternoon to hear about local history and sample a variety of entrees and desserts, then this may be your kind of tour. I found out more about the history of Memphis and especially... More
