The JFK Tour satisfies history buffs and foodies alike. From authentic Latin empanadas to the classic Y.O. Ranch chef-owned steakhouse, we’ll eat our way through the West End warehouse district for a full foodie tour with optional cocktails and mocktails.

The JFK assassination area is truly best explored on foot with a guided walking tour.

My husband and I took the JFK food tour on Saturday with Briana. We had a great group and amazing food. We really enjoyed all the food options so much. My husband’s favoritve stop was The Empanada Cookhouse. Both the beef and the dessert one. If I had to pick.. the Indian stop at Shivas was mine. Briana was so fun and made the tour so enjoyable! We highly recommend Food Tours of America!

-Bill Attilio

Wonderful experience with Erin during today’s tour. We got the lucky chance to be solitary on the tour so that Erin had the chance to give us the expanded stories on a lot of Texas history and specifics about how each dish came to be named. This is a highly recommended tour, and we enjoyed each and every dish we tried. Enjoy.

I did a Food Tour with Food Tours of America for my 30th birthday and it was the best birthday ever! If you have a birthday, private event, company party or a bachelor/bachelorette party look no further! Veronica was a great tour guide and the customer service is super responsive and efficient. Everyone on the tour had a blast!
