Mountain State Food Tours is owned and operated by Charleston, WV residents Michael  and Maria Young. Like a lot of you, we appreciate good food, good drink and a fun, active dining experience with friends old and new .   We've enjoyed walking food tours in some of our neighboring states as well as other national and international destinations. Returning home to West Virginia, we realized that the food scene here is every bit as tasty and sophisticated.  


We love West Virginia! And we love the unique flavors, the creative, adventurous cooking and local cuisine we've found here. We believe food is part of the great, untold success story of West Virginia. It speaks to the state's rich and vibrant past and gives a proud, flavorful nod to the many populations who've made these hills and hollers their home. We opened Mountain State Food Tours in 2016 to make it easier for residents and visitors alike to enjoy some of the history, culture and unique dining options available here. We hope you'll join us  and taste for yourself some of the mouthwatering food our capital city and our beautiful state have to offer.
