The Triple G Pork Chop. This dish won me $20k and now you can try it for yourself!
Cast iron seared pork chop over mashed potatoes wwith a haritcot vert medley and topped with green apple chutney. Because when Chef Robert Irvine tells you to do a chutney, you do a chutney.

I always say that there is nothing wrong with chains but I love locals (food, motels, etc.) no matter where I am. Becky and I have gone to Amish country several times for the Dutch Host Inn’s Winter package. It is like a scavenger hunt getting food and items along the way. We went Thursday evening and this was the owner Friday morning after plowing the parking lot. I bet that doesn’t happen at chain motels. I LOVE LOCAL and small businesses!

With great sadness Wheeling Food Tours wants to express our sympathy to the family and employees at Wheeling Coffee & Spice in the death of Mary Ann Lokmer. When she was available she always would come to greet our food tour guests and tell them the history of the business. Wheeling lost a very nice lady and business owner.

Wheeling Food Tours are excited to start 2019. This Saturday January 5, is our most popular tour, the Centre Market Food Tour. There is still time to join this tour. You can register for the tour at wheelingfoodtours.com before 10 am the day of the tour.

My wife Becky and I started Wheeling Food Tours this past spring. Our goal is show out-of-towners what great local eateries we have in Wheeling and give local residents a chance to sample several local restaurants at one time and possibly introduce folks to some they have never thought to try. Along this walking tour, we throw in some Wheeling history and the opportunity to speak to the restaurant owners or representatives. This past week we hosted a company's end-of-year meeting/Christmas Party tour. Their employees were from the tri-state area as well as Columbus, Latrobe, etc. They loved DiCarlo's square pizza with unmelted cheese and Coleman's fish along with 5 other stops. We would love to have the opportunity to show you, your family and friends Wheeling on 1 of our 3 tours. We offer gift certificates and private tours for office/group Christmas parties. We can do groups from 3 to 15. We will do our best to help your group meet your date/time and group size needs. Call if you have questions 740-391-2579. We also have tours scheduled for the week between Christmas and New Years if you have family in and are looking for something to do or want to bring back some memories. Visit wheelingfoodtours.com for a list of participating restaurants or more details.

[11/30/18]   Becky and I had some running to do and were in Wheeling at lunch time today, where to eat? We hit 3 of our participating restaurants. We each had a bowl of soup from The Soup Shack. This was our 1st time there with the new ownership and were not disapointed. Becky had Potatoe Feta and I had Tomato Bisque. We each ate half and then switched. The Tomato was very good but that Potato was fabulous. We then split a Coleman fish sandwich and split a chocolate crepe pie from Oliver’s Pies. I Love Local !!!

Dave Speaks at Wheeling Rotary | Wheeling Food Tours | Wheeling WV | Food Tours

wheelingfoodtours.com Tuesday afternoon, September 18, I got the opportunity to share about Wheeling Food Tours to the Wheeling Rotary.  There were probably 20-30 individuals at the ...

[09/22/18]   We had a nice tour today. One guest contacted me and said her children’s school was cancelled today in Avella, PA and could she bring them? They did great and I think they really enjoyed it. I know we sure enjoyed them. They were our first children to take the tour. The 10 year old boy said he was filling up after our 3rd stop but he was going keep eating. He did and then asked for ice cream before going home.

Our Story

Hello, I’m Dave McLeod, let tell you a little bit about myself and the Wheeling Food Tours. Growing up and living in the Ohio Valley (Wheeling area) my entire life, I have a desire to help you to experience local food of the Ohio Valley and show some of Wheeling’s history as we walk from establishment to establishment. We currently have 3 different tours covering different locations of Wheeling. These 2-3 hour walking tours will cover from as little as 2 blocks up to about 1 mile and visit 5-7 local establishments sampling food at each one. Do not eat before the tour because you will have a complete meal by the time we are finished. Tours will be on selected Friday and Saturday afternoons. Visit wheelingfoodtours.com for booking information and dates.

ABOUT WHEELING: The Ohio Valley (Wheeling) had many factories and for that reason, many people moved here when they immigrated from Europe. The Ohio Valley became a cultural melting pot of people and they brought their food recipes with them. The area has a high percentage of European culture and food. Therefore, Wheeling is full of great history and great food.

ABOUT MYSELF: I was born and raised in the Ohio Valley, across the river from Wheeling in Shadyside, Ohio. My mother would take me to downtown Wheeling for shopping in the 60s and 70s. This would always include lunch at either the Tea Room in Stone & Thomas, Elby’s Big Boy, the counter inside G.C. Murphy, or Louie’s Famous Hot Dogs. Now days I love to eat at a variety of local establishments. I have nothing against the chain restaurants but I love local food. On vacations I love to eat where the locals eat. My wife Becky is a very good cook but now that we have an empty nest, we probably eat out more than we should. After being a participant (guest, tourist) on a couple of food tours, I thought why not downtown Wheeling. So after discussing this with my wife and adult children over Christmas, I decided to give it a try. So let’s WALK, EAT, REPEAT...
