Enjoy amazing food while soaking up Dallas history on our food tasting and cultural walking tours. Come hungry, because on our Uptown Dallas tours we serve up generous tasting plates in our favorite casual local restaurants. Our tours are enough for lunch! In addition to our sit-down restaurant tastings and entertaining Dallas commentary, some of our tours also feature several historic attractions unique to Uptown such as the McKinney Avenue antique trolleys. Uptown Dallas is just one mile north of downtown Dallas, minutes from most hotels and convention center. We specialize in public tours and private group events. Tours often sell out, advance purchase required.

Went for a bridal shower! Vanessa was great. Spent extra time with bridal shower "activities" which was very thoughtful. Great way to get to know people thru new tasting experiences. I would recommend this tour as a fun way to get to know an area and get to know new friends or colleagues. Super fun!

We had the BEST time. This is such a vibrant area and we were exposed to such interesting places we would have never experienced, on our own. Gratefully, we had Jim to show us around. Not only is he charming and funny, but he is one of the people who actively helped develop this area. Holy Cow ! You can't... More

We had a wonderful informative tour guide, Jim. We were so glad to have gone on the tour because it really allowed us to explore areas that we may not have gone to had it not been for the tour or advice of the tour guide. If you want to get a real taste of Dallas (no pun intended!), make... More

We had such a great food tour with Vanessa! She was so knowledgeable, enthusiastic, interesting and fun! We loved the variety of food and styles of restaurants! We actually live in uptown Dallas but got to try new places and new food at old places. This is a must-do tour if visiting Dallas!

We are so pleased to know that you actually live in Uptown, and still we were able to introduce you to foods at the local restaurants that you may not have tried otherwise! That is what our food tours are all about! We will also let Vanessa know you enjoyed her! Thank you for giving us such a wonderful review... More

Enjoyed the tour with Vanessa on Valentine's Day. Enjoyed the variety of tastings! Would be very difficult to say which restaurant we like best. Lots of options with 5 restaurants and more than one thing to taste at each.

We have done many food tours and this was great. We were able to experience many restaurants in the Uptown Dallas area. It is a wonderful neighborhood. The guide, Vanessa L, did a superb job of answering questions and telling us about the restaurants and their history. We received much more food than I expected which was great. We opted... More

Our first food tour ~ first Dallas tour. Wonderful experience. Our tour guide, Jim, was so helpful and informative. A friend visiting from out of tour suggested this tour. It was fun!

My husband and I come to Dallas every year to visit his family, but we never site see so we decided to give a food tour a try. It was the perfect way to learn about the city, meet new people and taste some of the unique foods of Dallas. We definitely recommend Food Tours of America!
