“Truly The Best BBQ in Visalia but...”
Reviewed November 25, 2013

The baby back ribs, tri-tip and chicken are hands down the best you'll find in Visalia. It's the Mesquite they use for their BBQ that gives anything on the menu it's unique and savory flavor. Family meals come with flour tortillas, rice and the best beans I've had, and their salsa you'll want to eat with a spoon. You can dine in but this is more strip-mall and not a restaurant in that sense, but is it ever great for take out. That's why I marked it as average for "special occasions" below. It's not somewhere you go for an occasion. The only problem with Tour's Grill, you can't get it on weekends! Friday afternoon until Monday they're closed. That's the worst part of this restaurant.

“Still amazing!”
Reviewed July 18, 2013 via mobile

I haven't been back in Visalia in years and was so glad to see that this place is still here. The chicken salad, vinaigrette, and hot tortillas are just as I remember it!

“BOMB!”
Reviewed May 23, 2013

Super great food. Super good prices! It's BBQ at its best. Friendly owner. Wouldn't hurt to have a bit less salt in the meat though. But overall I would recommend!

“Great Mesquite Grilled BBQ Chicken and Tri-tip”
Reviewed March 26, 2013

What can D. Brown (owner) do for you? Cook up really
great Mesquite Grilled BBQ Chicken and Tri-tip. Take out or eat in. The restaurant is not much on ambiance but the food is really tasty. Best BBQ chicken and Tri-tip in town! Reasonable prices. You can see the big bags of mesquite coal/wood in the kitchen.
They do catering also.
