Frequently Asked Questions

No cringey tourist stuff, we promise.

Absolutely! More than half of our guests are local to the Chicagoland area, and they always say the same thing: “I learned so much about Chicago’s history and restaurant scene that I didn’t know!” Locals who come on our tours will find their new favorite date night spot, and can impress their visiting friends with all their Chicago “insider” knowledge.

Yeah, we hate that, too. And, no, no umbrellas or bullhorns. Our guides feel more like part of the group. They’re friendly without being annoying, and they don’t just recite a script. We hire people who love this city, and we train them extensively to make their job look effortless. No cringey tourist stuff, we promise.

No need to make reservations for after the tour. You’ll enjoy the equivalent of a full meal or more on our food tours.

Rain or shine, you gotta eat! Unless the weather looks like it’ll threaten the safety of our guests or guides, the tours will run in most conditions. If it’s too wet or cold, we’ll just spend more time indoors at our restaurant partners.

If you let us know during the booking process/checkout of your tour, we CAN provide vegetarian-friendly tasting, but we CANNOT offer alternatives or substitutions for any other allergies (including lactose intolerant) or dietary restrictions (including vegan and gluten free). Vegetarian-friendly options must be requested in advance during the ticket purchase process.

West Loop is home to my favorite chefs and eateries.

It isn’t just the wide array of amazing food in the West Loop that makes me love exploring here. It’s the fact that the landscape is always changing. Every time I come, there’s an inventive new twist on a classic to taste, or a new hidden gem to stumble on.


The story of the West Loop's transformation from a meatpacking district to a world-renowned foodie destination fascinates me. You can feel the pulse of Chicago's culinary evolution, from award-winning restaurants to cozy diners that have stood the test of time.


Come discover something new with me on our West Loop food tour.
