The Keith Lee And Family Food Tour Is Back On The Road!

The next stop on the Keith Lee and Family Food Tour is here! Lee recently announced some changes to his food tour in a video on TikTok.
“I’ve always said, this food tour is the very beginning and it’s a trial and a test for bigger things,” he said. “Over a span of seven months, we’ve been to a total of about ten cities. And I’m not oblivious to criticism. I realize that the last two spots, I didn’t have the best experience. And I 100-percent take credit that there’s growth that could be had on my end. With that being said, me and my team have had multiple conversations.”
One improvement that Lee plans to implement into his food tour is having categories. Lee is adding three categories of restaurants that they go to.
“One being our target audience, which is restaurants that have great food, great customer service, but could use the marketing,” he continued. “Two being local favorites that highlight the food scene in each city, voted on directly by the locals. And we’re gonna pick those restaurants by having a poll open on my IG Story so the locals in each city can pick the restaurants that we go to in that category.”
Lee feels that should “diminish” some of the comments people make about not going to the right spots.
The third category will be restaurants from “different backgrounds, different cultures, and different ethnicities.”
“So that way, the spots that we go to in each city are more diverse,” he said. “So without further ado, the next city on the Keith Lee and Family Food Tour – Dallas, Texas.”
