What better way to get to know a place and its people than to eat its food? Tour North Carolina's tastiest and most unique restaurants and shops. You'll go behind the scenes to chat with owners and chefs of the best restaurants in town while sampling their amazing food. Tours make 5-6 stops and along the way, you'll learn about the area's history and architecture. Public tours take place every Saturday. Private and custom tours are available. This is a great way to experience a city and feel like an insider!

Small group tour with wonderful food samplings and cultural and historical information. Sam Dinner was a great guide and lots of fun. We even got to celebrate Freida's 88th birthday at The Roast Grill!
