Saturday Night at Fireside Pies

We wanted to go somewhere different last night, so we decided to try Fireside Pies. It was a great choice. We got there around 6:45, hoping to beat the crowd. We did, but still had to wait about 30 minutes. Once we got inside, I realized why. This is a very small restaurant. There is seating at the bar for about 15 people, patio seating (it was full with the 105 degree temperature) and only eight tables inside. The only place to wait is outside, so we got just a little bit warm. I think I will wait until it is cooler to go next time.

We started with a salad called the "Fireside Cheese." It was delicious. It was mostly romaine lettuce with a roasted red pepper ranch dressing and loaded with several different cheeses.

Next we had "Jimmy's Spicy Italian Sausage" and we added roasted Gilroy garlic and Fireside meatballs. It was loaded with cheese. The blend they use is Paula's fresh Mozzarella, Fontina, Fontinella and Parmesean Reggiano. It is so good that I would be satisfied with a cheese pizza.

For dessert, we had the housemade "DMT Blackberry Vanilla Swirl Cheesecake with a Nilla Wafer Crust." Do I need to say more?

This will definitely be added to "the rotation", when it is cools down.
