What a great time we had walking and van traveling to some really excellent BBQ destinations around Memphis. Lance gives an ongoing narrative of what makes great BBQ and how regions differ. He also has a wealth of historic Memphis knowledge to share. All of us on this tour were offered more than we could possibly eat and came away... More

This tour was OK. I enjoyed the new restuarants that I have never eaten at, but the MAIN concern I have is that you leave HUNGRY!!. you eat little portions of meals. I mean, to pay alot of $$$$ for something you would expect to get full!! waste of $$

We thought this would be a good way to check out some great BBQ places in Memphis, tour the city a little and learn some of the history of both. The tour was informative and we hit quite a few places. Some of the big named places that we would to like to have gone were skipped, but the biggest... More

This was a great tour. Not only was it informative about the different BBQ methods representing in Memphis, but a lot about the city itself too. We were able to book the tour the day prior. The tour stopped at 6 restaurants, each of which had excellent food. By the last stop we were very full, but the ribs at... More

The thing that really sets this tour apart, was the tour guide. Lance was awesome! He really made the tour personable and also taught us a lot of history about Memphis. We did the Barbecue Tour, which included 6 different locations, and it was a mixture of walking and riding. My favorite items were the barbecue nachos, pulled pork egg... More

This tour wasn't what I expected to be. We had done the historic tours and were excited to learn and try some southern food but our guide Lance talked more about history then the food. It would have been nice if the full concentration of this tour was the food. Most of the stops were good a few were so-so... More

When we met up with Lance for the tour we were told that the other people in the tour were not going to make it. That was fine except that left a LOT of food for my daughter and I to eat. Lance was very knowledge and maybe a little opinionated (it is after all his town). We never had... More

First of all, hear me now: DO NOT EAT LUNCH. Small plate samples of BBQ in 6 different restaurants and by the end of the tour we were waddling. Lance provides loads of interesting stories, tying together the history of local politics, slavery, the blues, economic changes, the assassination of MLK and it's effect on the evolution of Memphis BBQ....

Lance, the tour guide is passionate about BBQ. He is a competition judge so he knows what he is looking at and eating when it comes to BBQ. One thing that you should be aware of- go hungry. This is equivalent to going to eat a meal over 3-4 hours so plan accordingly. Most of the places you can get... More
