Unbeknownst to us, my wife and I were the only ones booked for that particular BBQ tour. Lance met us in the hotel lobby and gave us a VERY personal tour, chauffeuring us around in his own Jaguar. What a treat!!! Lance was personable, very knowledgeable, and certainly knows all the right places to go to. We got to chat... More

We enjoyed our Memphis BBQ tastin' with Lance. As others have said, don't eat before the tour. You will get to experience different kinds of BBQ. Lance was great with explaining the differences and sharing the history of Memphis. Loved going to a couple of small places away from Beale Street. Would highly recommend!

Debbie was very well inforned about the history of the city, Beale Street, and all the restaurants we visited. Her background in the food industry also provided texture and support for her opinions about the food and chefs in Memphis. Debbie is pleasantly talkative, making the hours we spent together very enjoyable. There was plenty of food, more than we... More

We had already sampled lots of BBQ, so chose this tour instead of the BBQ one. Debbie was our tour guide - she had an encyclopedic knowledge of many aspects of Memphis - history, the music scene, tourist spots, as well as restaurants and food. For 3 hours, we walked around the downtown area, stopping at several local restaurants to... More

We were three couples traveling together and are kind of foodies. Loved the tour and loved the history both of BBQ and Memphis that Lance provided. We were warned not to eat lunch before the tour, but we probably should not have had breakfast or eaten the day before, also. A lot of food and seven different kinds of BBQ... More

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
