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.

We visited 4 out of 5 restaurants. If company tells there will be 5 restaurants and you pay for it they must keep their word. Food was not amazing, only the morocco restaurant was good.
