Months after a kitchen fire caused massive damage, Inwood Village pizzeria Fireside Pies is almost ready to make a comeback.
This week, the restaurant’s parent company applied for permits with the Texas Alcoholic Beverage Commission for the soon-to-reopen location at 7709 Inwood Road. An update to the restaurant’s website provides further clarity, indicating that it will reopen in October, more than nine months after the fire. Originally, the restaurant’s new corporate owners expected the renovations on the space to only take about a third of that time, according to the Dallas Morning News.
The fire happened about a month before the Dallas-born pizza spot was acquired by Golden Tree Restaurants, which owns the Golden Chick fried chicken chain. Since the opening of the original on Henderson Avenue in 2004, Fireside Pies has attracted a pretty devoted local following for its charred crusts. It’s so popular, in fact, that Golden Tree Restaurants has plans to open two new outposts of Fireside Pies, including a location that’s set to open at the Creekside Shopping Center in Lake Highlands in early 2019.
Stay tuned for official opening dates for both the Inwood Village and Lake Highlands locations of Fireside Pies.
