Having visited Memphis before and done Graceland, The Civil Rights Museum, Stax, Sun Studios, R0ck and Soul Museum, we were looking for something different to do. Since we also love Memphis BBQ, we decided to try Tastin Around Town. We made an excellent choice. Our guide, Lance, took us to six different restaurants, where we tried everything from ribs to...

First of all, I came to Memphis for Elvis week. On a lark, I looked for other things to do in Memphis as well as go to Graceland. Procedurally, buying the tickets and getting to the meeting point was easy and painless. The owner did the tour himself and he is very knowledgable about Memphis BBQ and Memphis in general.... More

The last few we traveled in his Van. Lance was awesome. he has a wealth of knowledge. We learned not only about BBQ in general, but Memphis... More

The downtown food Tour is an EXCELLENT way to learn a lot of history of Beale Street and the surrounding areas. The variety of restaurants that Chef Debbie selects gives you an excellent opportunity to get a sense of how the area is laid out and it definitely takes you to some restaurants that would have missed a real treat...

We were worried since we really did not know what to expect. Our tour guide Debbie is a culinary teacher at the Memphis State College. She took us around to six different venues. Some in Beale St some in Union St and ended across the World famous Peabody Hotel. All the stops Debbie would tell us a little bit about... More

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
