Best Of Bham Food & Drink Tour
Private Tour Only | Price - $100-150 | Length - 2.5-3 hours
Join us on a food tour of Birmingham in search of the best food and drink this town has to offer. From pulled pork to peanuts and a few Birmingham classics in between, we are going to sample our way through Birmingham, AL.
So much of Birmingham's food history can be tied to immigrants and our first stop pays tribute to the Greek folks who help make food in this city special, Gus's Hot Dogs. After dining while standing, we'll drive around the city to try a local snack on the oldest road in the city at the Alabama Peanut Company.
Then it's off to another neighborhood to sample some beer, Saw's BBQ, and some tiny cookies. The BBQ alone will have you thinking about making our city your new home.
Finally, we'll close with a dessert made the best pastry chef in America. Don't take our word for it, the James Beard Awards said so.

The ticket cost covers all transportation between restaurants and a drop off back at Railroad park. We finish where we started. There is some walking on our Birmingham food tour, but it is almost all driving.
