My husband and I went on this food tour this weekend and we had a great time. We have lived in Dallas for 4 years and we've only been to one of the restaurants that was featured on the tour so this is a great idea for visitors and locals alike. We sample food for 6 different restaurants and everything was delicious. We even went to one of the restaurants for a full dinner the next day because we were so impressed. The tour guide was great, informative and friendly. You get a good amount of food for your money, we definitely left feeling VERY full!! I highly recommend this tour to anyone.

A word of advice, it is definitely a WALKING tour so wear comfortable shoes and light clothes (especially in the summer heat). But the tour did a great job of providing water and making stops so it certainly wasn't too strenuous.

Great experience - the tour guide was very knowledgeable and the food was great. We not only got to see some neat architecture and restaurants but we also got to meet some interesting people who joined us on the tour. The Moto Taco fish tacos and Primo fajitas were some of the highlights and the Stand's corn dogs and sweet potato tots were fun and tasty. D'Fratelli's veggie pizza can't go unmentioned - I will have to to there for a full meal.

Outstanding Sunday morning! Well-educated, friendly, tour guide...Jody! Designed the walking tour to suit us perfectly. Quick tastings, many venues, and fun facts! Totally enjoyed! Would definitely recommend! I was born and raised in Dallas and still learned a lot and tried new restaurants and areas that I wasn't familiar with!

My first time doing something like this. I learned so much, visited places I've never been before and will now go back. The people in our group were very nice. And our tour guide Jennifer did an outstanding job. She was very knowledgeable, friendly and remembered small details about people in the group. I hope Food Tours of America will continue to come up with new ideas. Because I will definitely come back again.
