Asheville’s First & Best Food Tour
Celebrating 10 Years in 2018!

I’ve been living in Asheville and going out to eat since 2005, and have been a professional eater and food writer since 2012, I’ve tasted the food at every venue in Downtown Asheville at one time or another. Paddy is my tour-guide guru, and one of the foremost authorities on downtown Asheville! His knowledge of our food scene as well as the history and architecture of our beautiful city  is impressive, and always delivered with a smile, and some of the worst dad-jokes you’ll ever hear!

For a small town in Appalachia, Asheville, North Carolina has an astounding number of very high quality eateries, as well as a world renowned craft beer scene, a burgeoning craft cocktail scene, and a small but excellent and always growing coffee scene! We’re known as “Beer City USA,” as well as “Bee City” for our attention to the bees, and our amazing tupelo honey, and honey culture & competitions, and of course, we are sometimes called “Foodopia,” or as I like to say, the Best Food Town in The USA!
