Back in 2004, Fireside Pies was founded in an old cottage on Henderson Avenue in Dallas. Since then, the restaurant has expanded across the Dallas Fort Worth Metroplex, but never failed to stay true to their roots: quality, artisan pies crafted in wood-fired ovens, served in intimate, neighborhood settings. Come to Fireside Pies for a memorable evening, remarkable pizza, and craft drinks.
The Porch Restaurant is a full restaurant and bar + Dallas brunch favorite (if you haven’t heard yet - Dallas loves a good brunch).
