What to Expect

Food Walks of Texas offers visitors as well as natives a unique and tasty way to explore historic downtown McKinney.

Our 2.5-hour Cocktail Tour includes 5 tasting stops at a variety of locally owned restaurants and bars. Enjoy learning about the uniqueness of each restaurant, what makes their cocktail special, as well as the other cultural landmarks and events McKinney has to offer.

We leisurely and safely cover 1 mile strolling around the downtown Square area, spending a sufficient amount of time at each stop. Wear comfy shoes, come thirsty, and get ready to have an exciting evening! While we serve food tastings alongside the drinks, we end the evening near the center of the Square, so you can enjoy dinner after if desired.

Look for your tour guide – “Tall Paul” – outside of Local Yocal BBQ & Grill.

Where to Meet

Your tour guide will greet you outside of Local Yocal BBQ & Grill, located at 350 E. Louisiana St. Local Yocal has a large parking lot available, and there are also several parking lots around the Square. Another ideal parking option is the FREE parking garage on the NE corner of E. Virginia St. and N. Chestnut. Be on the lookout for the “Parking Lot” signs posted around the area. Individual street parking is also available, but limited.
