Attraction details
Owner description: 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...

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

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

Creating an interesting weekend for my Honey and myself included the Texas Bar-B-Q Tour with Billy Ray! It was great fun! Billy Ray is the quintessential down home good 'ole Texas boy and he showed us a grand 'ole time! Snippets of history, local stories about Ft. Worth, local sites to see, a few songs thrown in for good measure... More

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

Billy unfortunately had a nasty bad accident in the days leading up to my scheduled tour and so whilst he initially contacted me to cancel the tour, he subsequently offered to take me for bbq as a personal favour (and despite his obvious pain and discomfort that he was still in). As a solo traveller, this resulted in me sharing... More

We wanted to do something different while visiting Fort Worth. What better tour to take than a BBQ one!??!?! Billy is awesome! He is very personable and informative about the area. Not only do you get to sample BBQ from three of the top six BBQ places in Dallas/Fort Worth, you get to go behind the scenes and see the... More
