Chef Lance was a great host with an amazing knowledge of the art of BBQ and its history. Over the course of 4 hours we visited six restaurants sampling ribs, pulled pork, nachos, egg rolls and would you believe BBQ spaghetti. Everything was nice but the spaghetti was my favourite. If you like BBQ you will love this tour but... More

My husband and I had a very nice time! We came on our second to last day and shared the tour with another couple. Tour guide was very informative and nice. The 6 places we went were a perfect mix that left you just full enough to eat a few hours later. It's a great way to support local businesses... More

The four of us had a great day on the Tastin' Round Town tour. We have told everyone we know that this is well worth the money (although we thought it was very reasonably priced for all the food we sampled). Our guide was not only informative about food but knew a lot about Beale Street and was so much... More

Our tour guide was Debby. She's interesting and great fun. The tour was as much about the history of Memphis and the places we went to eat, as it was about the food. All delicious. Don't do this on your last day - you'll want to go back to some of these places for a complete meal!!!

We met our tour guide Lance at our meeting place and knew from the start that he was serious about Memphis bbq as we were greeted with brisket and sauce from a local joint, A&R. Chef Lance took us and our tour partners on a bbq culinary and cultural journey on the streets of Memphis and enjoyed a bbq experience... More

Mid October is a slower time of the tourist season and my wife and I ended up being the only members on the tour; this was a good thing. We had our own personal tour guide for 3 1/2 hours! Lance gave us the history of different methods of BBQ meats and different techniques. He also was able to give... More

The various BBQ dishes we had was a wonderful experience in that we were taken to places we did not know existed, tried new ways to have BBQ & were given a lot of information from the tour guide. He was too much of a talker and there was NEVER a moment he wasn't talking. After 4 hours we were... More
