Spearheaded by passionate local Austinites, Austin Eats Food Tours cultivates culinary exploration and foodie curiosity by delving into unknown gems and showcasing 7 or 8 area restaurants in three-hour tours. The Saturday Downtown tour shepherds about 15 voracious eaters through Austin’s Farmer’s Market before diners sink into a hefty host of meaty treats, sampling succulent burgers and gourmet sausages plus fresh bakery treats. Two-wheeling mammals can divulge downtown Austin's restaurants and food trucks during the bicycle food tour, or meander down South Congress on the Sunday morning South Congress tour, nibbling on a smattering of eclectic eats from all corners of the country: venturing to New York for pizza, the Deep South for shrimp and grits, and New Mexico for niblets of edible turquoise. Vegetarians and pescatarians are encouraged to indulge in the South Congress tour to sample items from each stop and avoid the downtown Austin tradition of paving sidewalks with jerky.

As they lead participants through the city in search of regional and international bites, they regale them with Austin history, such as how it became the capital city of Texas and why Austin-style pizza is shaped like a guitar.

Customer Reviews

This was a great tour with a variety of different foods to sample. The eatery owners often spoke to us themselves and provided history of their place along with generous and great tasting samples. Our guide was pleasant and informative. He has other tours and we will definitely try them.

This was such a fun experience! Even though I had been to several of the restaurants the tour takes you too, the tasting, the information at each location, and the atmosphere were great! I would recommend this to anyone, whether you are new to Austin or have been here your whole life, for something fun, different, and delicious to do!
