My boyfriend bought tickets to the Food Tours of America as a surprise for me. I had heard about it and really wanted to do it. Both he and I love great food, wine and the Uptown area of Dallas so we were very excited to experience this. This was not at all what we imagined it would be!!! The tastings were just that...very small tastes of terrible food. I guess in that regard we should be thankful that they were only tastings! There were really no significant historical places. We just seemed to do a lot of walking through residential areas. We did ride the trolley car a short distance. We spent more time sitting in a very overcrowded trolley car than it would have taken us to walk. The restaurant choices were not the best especially with all the great places to eat in Uptown. We started at a Moroccan place and that wasn't too bad, but yogurt samples and french fries are not exactly the best samplings of food in the area. The Mexican food wasn't bad. We were excited that a margarita was included but it turned out to be a shot glass of frozen margarita that tasted like a premix bought at Sam's club and the food was mediocre and cold. We ended at Magnolia movie theatre for dessert that wasn't even provided by the theatre it was from Bread Winners.. Why didn't we eat it at Bread Winners? That was strange. The tour guide was over the top and annoying. Very theatrical in her presentation. What a long 3 hours wasted of our day! My suggestion....look up trip advisors top choices in restaurants in Uptown, choose one and spend your money there having a good and enjoyable dining experience then spend some time walking around Uptown on your own. Believe me, you will have a much better time and your money much better spent!
