The Texas Bar-B-Q Tour starts with a train ride on the TRE (Trinity Railway Express) to the T&P Train Station in downtown Fort Worth. There you board a clean air conditioned bus. The tour stops at three of the top six award winning Bar-B-Q restaurants in Fort Worth/Dallas, rated by D Magazine. At each restaurant you will savor their signature Bar-B-Q. If the pitmaster can break away from the fire, he will join us for a Q&A. It is fascinating to hear about their choices of wood, meats and cooking temperatures. As we drive through the city, you will hear the history of Fort Worth/Dallas. We will point out restaurants, landmarks and places of interest. You will see the Water Gardens, Sundance Square, The Historic Stockyards and many more sites. Photo opportunities will be available at the Fort Worth Water Gardens, Stockyards, Cowboys Stadium and the Ballpark in Alrington. If you leave hungry it's your own fault...

We only thought we knew good barbeque. We didn't. Now we do. We just concluded our New Years Eve Day "Tour for Two". What a memorable way to get ready for 2015. The tour is as advertised - only better. As we were a bit familiar with Fort Worth, we chose to spend more time visiting with Billy as we... More

A group of us were in FW for the first time and we were glad we stumbled across Billy's BBQ. We had a great time and had great food!

It was our first time to Fort Worth and Billy took the hassle of having to arrange our own itinerary. Our family had such a fantastic time, everything ran smoothly and we experienced the best of what Fort Worth has to offer. Billy added a real special touch to the tour as he was able to make the most out... More

If you like BBQ, heck even if you don't, this tour is the absolute best introduction to first time visitors to Texas. Thank you Billy Ray for the appetizer, I will... More

We just wanted to write a note to let everyone know what a great time we had on the Barb-B-Q tour!! The day was so much fun... Billy really makes you feel comfortable. Learning about Fort Worth was fun, some of the areas we had seen before, but we still learned something new! The BBQ was outstanding, meeting the cooks... More

A great day spent with an interesting & informative local. We were treated like royalty. Food was amazing. The little stops to check out tourist & non-tourist spots was great. Would recommend this to anyone visiting Dallas & Fort Worth. Thanks Billy Ray for a warm & wonderful introduction to your home town

Got my lady tickets to the George Strait (Cowboy Rides Away) Concert & she surprised me with a BBQ Tour with the man, the myth, the legend Billy Ray. Haven't had this much fun packed into one day since Spring Break 2002. Billy is a sensational tour guide and does a magnificent job of making everyone on his tour laugh... More
