I've been to downtown McKinney many times, however, this was by far my best visit! Tall Paul was a fabulous guide who knows his local history inside & out. We were warmly welcomed to every place we visited. It wasn't just a tour group coming by; we were friends in for a special treat. I highly recommend this tour to anyone who enjoys unique local restaurants, fantastic cocktails and wants an insider's view of McKinney, TX. Fortunately, I live in the area as I can't wait to try another tour.

We took our adult children on the food tour to celebrate our daughters 40th birthday. Our tour guide, Paul, was wonderful. He was very knowledgeable and funny. The locations we stopped at were great. My favorite was the Cuban sandwich at Guava Tree. Everyone had a great time. I would do it again in a heart beat.

This tour deserves all the 5 star reviews. The food was a great mix of alcohol, savory and sweet. Wonderful history lesson with stories and pictures. Best of all, guide Tall Paul shared his love of his town and made every participant his new friend. Don't miss this one!

Tall Paul was a great tour guide. He picked out terrific spots to sample food and drinks. I was also amazed that he catered to anyone who had a dietary restriction. He was very knowledgeable and just plain fun. Highly recommend.

So glad Paul and Lali decided to start this historic food walk through downtown! McKinney has so much history I never knew about and I loved the old photos Paul would pull out. All the food stops were delicious as well. I highly recommend!

As you well know, there's lots to love about McKinney and we feel lucky to be able to not only live here but also share the fun with others, like yourself! Appreciate the kind words! :-)

This tour is a foodie’s dream come true! Tall Paul does a phenomenal job sharing his knowledge of the history of downtown McKinney, and his restaurant and bar selections are second to none. This tour was the grand finale to a weeklong visit with my teen granddaughters and it proved to be one of the high points of their visit. Our favorite stop on the tour was CT Provisions where we indulged in elegant cocktails and oysters on the half shell. Great experiences make great memories! Thank you Tall Paul!

“Tall Paul” was a great guide, interesting historical references, and took us to six great downtown restaurant options. Highly recommended for locals and out of towners.

My girlfriends and I had a fabulous time on the Eat There or Be Square food tour with Food Walks of Texas as part of our girls day out for my bachelorette party. Tall Paul was very knowledgeable and friendly. When our tour ran into rain he was able to quickly pivot the schedule to help keep us out of the weather. The food was wonderful and included great portions. We enjoyed learning so much history about McKinney and the square. I highly recommend this tour!

I gifted my mom the Brunch tour and went while she was in town over the holidays. We had a fantastic time! Loli was informative about the places we visited and about McKinney in general. The food portions were perfect (definitely plenty to eat but not overly stuffed) and the cocktails were yummy. I would definitely recommend! (Also makes a great gift!)

My work friend and I are starting a tradition of checking out food tours when we are at work conferences out of state. I loved the idea of a “brunch” tour. What we got was so much more! First, this is a locally owned business, where the owners personally guide groups through the town that they love! That makes a huge difference in the experience! Our brunch tour was with Lali, but we crossed paths with Tall Paul on the tour he was leading. They want to make their tours an amazing experience and take time to get feedback when it is over. The tour is well balanced between sit down tastings and visits to a wide variety of local shops with a variety of both items to sample and purchase. This tour would go over very well with many couples I know because it was the right mix between eating and shopping. At each of the places that we visited where we need not have a sit down sampling, we received some sort of goody! This tour is both for the foodie and the person who loves to cook! Many of the shops sold spices, oils, or kitchen gadgets.
If you are concerned about walking too much, don’t be. It was a minimal amount of walking. If the idea of “shopping” some turns of you off, don’t worry about that either. Lali let us guide how much time we spent in the shops. Some we walked in for a couple of minutes and we lingered in others. You will want to hang out in this beautiful, historic town once the tour is over. I’d love to take Tall Paul’s historic tour next.

So in summary, you will have fun, you’ll walk away very full of yummy food, and you’ll have a new town to love!
