The tour stops at three of the top six award winning barbecue (Bar-B-Q) restaurants in Fort Worth/Dallas, rated by D Magazine story by Daniel Vaughn. At each restaurant you will savor their signature barbecue (Bar-B-Q). If the pit master 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 Arlington. If you leave hungry it's your own fault...

While everyone is aware that Texas is Bar-B-Q- country, were you aware that Ft. Worth has some of the best in the state? Book a tour with Billy Ray. He will take you to some of the city's best (and it's got a lot). A very entertaining gentleman with some great knowledge of the city and he has chosen some... More

My partner and I came down for an impromptu weekend and thought what better way to see a city than a food tour - boy were we right! Billy Bob has such a wealth of knowledge about Ft Worth and is more than gracious in sharing. Not only was the tour great, but he takes you to all the best... More

I came up with the idea to take my father and grandfather on a tour of Ft. Worth. We are Dallas folks and haven't had much experience with Ft. Worth as a city or the BBQ they have to offer. I can now tell you more than you'd want to know about Ft. Worth..."because I learned it on the BBQ... More

I went on the Texas Bar-B-Q Tour this weekend and must say that I enjoyed every minute . I knew little about Ft Worth and its history, but Billy Ray managed to provide plenty of interesting facts about the city in between his plethora of jokes. We stopped at what has to be the 3 best bar-b-q restaurants that Cowtown... More

If Fort Worth was its own country, Billy Ray should be the Ambassador. Since it isn't I would at least give him the title, "Ambassador of BarBQue." My parents and I had a lovely time learning about the history and culture of Fort Worth by visiting the old train station, the water park, downtown for the cattle drive, as well... More

So - I wanted to take a food tour with my husband who is from the Northwest. I grew up in Texas, but he is an avid foodie and I wanted him to experience some awesome BBQ. We were home visiting my family and celebrating my Birthday. THIS WAS THE BEST THING I PLANNED FOR THE ENTIRE WEEK! So -... More

Biily our tour guide is a local resident of Fort Worth and he meet us at the Fort Worth light rail station on time. We visited the highlights of the town including the old railway station, the water fountain park, the shopping town which is a little hidden gem and the JFK Memorial. We visited the stock yards and we... More
