About Food Tours of America Dallas

Founded in 2011 by Jodi Philippson

In 2011, a local Dallasite named Jodi had a vision (and a rumble in her stomach): what kind of business would allow her to combine her love of food, people, and creativity? After thinking long and hard about it (and having a snack), she created Food Tours of America Dallas. Now the premiere food tour company of Dallas, ranked #1 Food and Drink in Dallas on TripAdvisor.


Whether you’re a visitor, an transplant, or a lifelong Dallas local, our food tours offer a culinary and social experience that you won’t forget. In addition to spending time with the best tour guides in town, you will also make your way through some of Dallas’ favorite neighborhoods to discover great restaurants and fantastic foodie options, all while getting a dose of sightseeing and culture.


Looking for a local’s point of view? Our tour guides aren’t your average tour guides – they’re neighborhood locals with a knack for storytelling. We love hosting out-of-towners and locals alike; whether it’s a travel tale about how you got to Dallas or a common favorite restaurant in Uptown, we’re always ready to chat and share our own favorite spots in the city. As your hosts, we’re here to make the experience memorable in every way possible – so don’t be shy!


Never been on a food tour? Love food? Love people? You’re missing out! On any of our tours, you’ll sample signature dishes from a variety of four to six restaurants while sharing the company of loved ones and strangers alike. But trust us – you won’t be strangers for long, as tours participants are known to engage in acts of foodie friendship.  Who knows? You might find that the person sitting next to you could be your new best friend!
Take a food tour today and enjoy our scenic, short walks combined with insider tips, friendly faces and plenty of bites of food and culture will leave you feeling full and more like a local.  Most of all, we can promise this: you definitely won’t leave hungry.
