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.

I took this tour over spring break. When I heard this was a 3 hour walking tour, I expected to be exhausted at the end of it. I was pleasently surprised to realize that this tour was a lot more eating than walking. All of the food was amazing, our tour guide was very friendly and informative, and it was... More

Jim was great and it started with his calling us on the cell phone to make sure we would find him. The JFK and historic area was very interesting. We walked in the Old court house and the Grassy Knoll discussing all and hearing a clear history of what happened. The warehouse redevelopment area was also fascinating. We took the... More

I had a little time to kill while visiting on a conference. We had soooo much fun! Our guide, Jason, was energetic, fun, knowledgeable and did a good job herding our group from restaurant to restaurant without making us feel rushed. The food was so different and it was all delicious. We also rode a trolley on our tour which... More

We did the west side foodie tour. Absolutely great experience. This is a great way of getting to sample the different resturants and to see how diverse this area is. Our tour guide Jason was great. He was fun and informational. Would recommend to everyone and I would do this again!

We were looking for a springbreak staycation activity for our family including my college age son and daughter. The Uptown Foodie tour was just the ticket. They already knew a bit about the area but were happy to learn about new places to go and new places to eat that we would never have discovered but for the tour. Baboush,... More

I had never been on a food tour before but I had some time to kill and thought "Why not?" Great decision. Jason was our guide and we had a wonderful time. The group was fun and the stops were unique to the area. Would do another one in a second!

A Sunday afternoon might not have been the best time for a food tour, but that's what worked in our schedule. We toured the West Village area, which prior to the tour was unknown to us. Turns out it was all for the best. Guide Jim had been a long-time resident of Dallas and had lots of information to share.... More
