Word on the Street

I love food tours and try to take them in every new city. This was truly the best one I've ever had the pleasure of taking. Tons of delicious food samples, but perfect sizes so you don't get too full to keep walking. There were also many historical stops and stories. You're truly walking through vital American history in Atlanta! All that plus a truly friendly and knowledgeable local, Jennifer, to lead the way! You should take this tour!

Tripadvisor Reviewer

I've been on over 20 food tours both inside (e.g., Los Angeles, Austin, Santa Barbara, New Orleans, New York, Seattle, Portland, Sonoma, San Francisco) and outside the US (Spain, Portugal, Italy, Croatia), and this was easily one of the best food tours I've EVER been on. I judge a food tour primarily on 2 characteristics--quality of the food and quality of the tour/tour guide's commentary. Both were way above and beyond expectations.

Tripadvisor Reviewer

Atlanta’s new Downtown Southern Food Walk explores the history of the Civil Rights movement through the lens of southern cuisine. …This is the neighborhood that people really need to be talking about.

Conde Nast Traveler

One of the 3 food tours every local Atlantan should do. With a background in food and storytelling, Akila McConnell, of Atlanta Food Walks, is the perfect addition to Atlanta's culinary tourism scene. … You won't find any food snobbery on this tour, just memorable moments for your taste buds.
