What you'll do

Tex-Mex is a uniquely Texas cuisine. Different in many ways from Mexican food. Fajitas, Enchiladas, Nachos, Chili and Combo platters are all staples of Tex-Mex and developed right here in the Lone Star State! On this 2 hour food tour you will visit some of the best Tex-Mex food stops that the Historic West End of Downtown Dallas has to offer!

We'll visit the famous YO Ranch Steakhouse and sample their exquisite Chuchwagon Chile! We'll also visit Ellens for some Texas comfort food! We'll also visit other sites and sample fish tacos and unique chipotle flavored sorbet or Mexican hot chocolate. With our unique "Pay as you Go" model, simply hand the guide $30 cash on your arrival and the guide will take care of the rest! They will pay for the entire group at each of our 4 stops! Minimizing wait time. Paying cash makes it easy for each restaurant to offer more food for much less that you would pay on a comparable food tour! Saving you money!!

As your taste buds savor every bite, your guide will fill you in with the rich history of the Tex-Mex cuisine. Where did Nacho's come from? How did chili con carne sweep the nation? You'll learn all this and more on this Dallas Food and Culture tour!

I was disapointed. We went to ice cream shop. fried ball restraunt and meat soup house. It was not speciall for Dallas. Those are just common food. Why do we need a guied for those food. I expacted some food of Dallas and some story about Dalls food and culture.

We had a great time on this tour. The food was excellent and our guide was so personable! He was able to tell us some neat Tex Mex history and also engage us in conversation the whole time. The location was also great - everything was within about two blocks, making for a nice short walk between stops!

This tour was fun and a great way to explore Dallas, the food and what it has to offer. Thomas was friendly and very kind. Definitely recommend!

The host is AWESOME!! But the actual cost of the entire tour isn’t really worth the little bit of food you actually get to eat. I won’t be doing this again but I’m happy I got the experience.
