You can take a guided tour, but we chose the walking tour for $5. With your ticket, you receive three tiny bottles of different Tabasco sauces to take home. You see every aspect of how the sauce is made from growing and picking the peppers to the bottling at the end of the line. We were shocked that Tabasco is... More

We toured the factory. I don't think the boys have ever seen a factory like that. They really enjoyed it. We bought several things in the factory store and had lunch at the cafe. Food was really good.

I had to bring my husband here because he is a huge tabasco fan. We had no idea what it would be like but we really enjoyed it. We had lunch at the restaurant and it's set up cafeteria style but the food was served quickly and quite tasty. The museum and general store were both lots of fun and... More

As a regular user of tabasco sauce I was pretty pleased to be visiting here as we were driving from New Orleans to Houston. It's a great little visitor centre with an interesting museum, a viewing gallery overt the bottling plant, a visit to a teen house and a really great gift shop at the end. You get three mini...

This was a self-guided tour it was put together very nicely a lot of history with the company. I think my favorite part was the gift shop in the end even though I normally hate them. I got few shirts and some knickknacks a lot of samples available. On our visit they throw in a free jar of salsa which... More

I love Tabasco sauce and have always wanted to see this place. You can even do food tours here (we couldn't because of time). So we opted to just do the factory tour. It's a self guided tour that lasts about 1 hour depending on how you read and ,I get at each stop. My favorite was the barrels of... More

This is such an interesting place to see all the way from the stinky pepper barrels in the far building to the aromatic sauce samples of the gift store. We lingered & looked & strolled the grounds to our hearts' content. My cousins talked me into sampling the jalapeno ice cream (against my better judgement). With throats on fire, we... More

I totally loved going to this museum. I really enjoyed the tour. It is set up where you can do it in about 2 hours. With informative videos at each location. I really enjoyed the country store I bought 2 jars of the pickles. I can't get them here and the friendly lady throwed in a jar of olives also!😀😀😀❤️
