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, and the 1880s Victorian homes of Dallas' oldest surviving neighborhood. 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. « less

My wife and I had a great time tasting the delicacies of Uptown Dallas with our guides Jason and Vanessa. They were knowledgeable, friendly and entertaining and their ultimate goal was to make sure we enjoyed the experience which we certainly did.

For a business lunch and entertainment activity, I found this tour online. My customer is a Foodie and grew up in Dallas so I wasn't sure if he would enjoy it and/or if any of the experiences would be new ones for him. As it turned out, we were the only two foks on our tour, so we essentially had... More

It was a very average experience. Ultimately not worth the amount of money we spent. The food on the tour was good but not great, and the alcohol paring was a waste of money. In the online description it says alcohol will be paired with the food to bring out the flavors but that's not true at all. Our tour... More

Went on this tour with co-workers on a cool Friday morning. Met our well informed, super friendly, Bronx born/Dallas reared tour guide Vanessa, who took us to several restaurants that tantalized your palate with sweet, savory, spicy, succulent and sexy flavors. Was there enough to eat you ask? ABSOLUTELY! Gilligan's Island cannot compete -this is the ultimate 3 HOUR TOUR!
