Fireside Chicken and Tacos: This Mix of American and Mexican Fare Will Tantalize Your Taste Buds

October 13, 2017 11:00 am

No meal at Fireside Chicken and Tacos is complete without a trip to the salsa bar. It's stocked with authentic salsas crafted according to co-owner Oscar Espinosa's own recipes, from the mild salsa roja to the extra-fiery habanero salsa. After you order a plate of street tacos, step right up to the salsa bar and embellish them as you like.

The salsa will only serve to accentuate the existing flavors in tacos stuffed with steak, grilled onion, cilantro, and avocado or chicken in red al pastor sauce with pickled red onions, pineapple, and cilantro. Breaded fish, spicy shrimp, and buffalo chicken are a few of the other proteins that star in Fireside's tacos. But you may want to skip the tacos and go for the rotisserie chicken or wings instead. The eatery is just as popular for its poultry as it is for the Mexican street food.

Burn Calories, Then Replace Them With Brisket at the Rib, Rub, Run, and Roll on October 7th

October 5, 2017 11:01 am

Smoke Smith BBQ, All Sauced Up, and The Sausage King are just a few of the Rockwall-area eateries that will be grilling and smoking meats at this year's Rib, Rub, Run, and Roll. On Saturday, October 7th, you and the rest of Rockwall's barbecue lovers can taste what they've been cooking in downtown Rockwall.

But before you feast, prepare your body by burning some calories. The 10K, 5K, and 1-mile fun run start at 8:30 a.m., taking participants all around Rockwall. After the run, come back to the starting line and enjoy live music, a car show, and, of course, fresh barbecue. Official judges will make most of the calls regarding the best brisket, most tender spare ribs, and perfectly smoked chicken, but the public is invited to cast their vote for the best wings. Buy a package of five tasting tickets and exchange each for a carefully crafted wing in the designated cooking tent, then cast your vote.

Give Back to Your Community at Col-Met’s 2nd Annual Ride for a Cause

September 22, 2017 11:00 am

The Helping Hands of Rockwall is an organization devoted to lending a helping hand to those who need it. They provide financial assistance and medical support to underserved people in Rockwall. In order to continue with this worthy cause, Helping Hands needs support itself. Be part of that support system when you participate in Col-Met's 2nd Annual Ride for a Cause on Saturday, September 23rd.

The motorcycle ride and fun run registration fees benefit Helping Hands, so the perks of taking part are two-fold: you get a great workout and you give back. Even if you don't want to be part of the run or bike ride, you can still come out to the car show and carnival at Col-Met's facility. Kids can have their faces painted and grab a snow cone before having some fun racing remote-controlled cars. Meanwhile, adults can bid on items at the silent auction and enjoy live music provided by local bands. The fun unfolds from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m., and admission to the festival and car show is free.
