How to Reserve a Table at Fireside Pies With This Virtual Card

Before you make dinner plans, get a burner card for reservations at Fireside Pies. How many times have you started the process of making a reservation at a hotel, social event, or restaurant only to hesitate when reading: "Please enter a valid debit or credit card number below." If that did little to make you have second thoughts, then those disclaimers some organizations have in fine print below that will — "Your credit card will not be charged at this time."

Why do they require us to enter a card number if they're claiming not to charge us? Not only is it likely that they've covered their bases in the Terms and Conditions, but "at this time" is coded language for "but we'll charge your card later when you least expect it."

After all, how many Terms of Service pages have you read when making a purchase, signing up for a free trial, or making a reservation?

No matter how reputable a company may seem, it makes most of us feel uneasy about handing our personal financial information to numerous faceless people in a virtual world. You have no idea how or where the information will be stored, what fees they have hidden up their sleeves, or even if the ones processing your information have criminal intentions.

Plus, with the pandemic still lingering, we can't always be certain our plans won't be thwarted.

What Is Fireside Pies?

Founded in 2004, Fireside Pies comes from humble beginnings in an old small cottage located on historic Henderson Avenue, north of the eclectic Uptown in Dallas, Texas. Henderson Avenue has long been known for offering residents and visitors of Dallas wide-ranging options for entertainment, shopping, and dining.

The area is home to visionary brands such as Bonobos, Warby Parker, and Sixty Vines. Of course, Henderson Avenue is most known for its long list of award-winning restaurants, like House of Blues Restaurant & Bar, Del Frisco's Grille, among others.

Establishments like Fireside Pies have helped make Henderson Avenue and Uptown Dallas a popular gathering place for people of all ages. Today, Fireside Pies is comprised of intimate neighborhood restaurants committed to serving excellent artisan pizzas. Keeping to traditional preparation and cooking methods, its pizzas are baked in wood-burning ovens.

Mirroring the characteristics of the neighborhoods it's operating in Fireside Pies also sells other food items that complement the pizza. This means that you won't find any two Fireside Pies restaurants that are the same — unlike those big-name cookie-cutter pizza chains. Each location has a spirit of its own yet evokes the soul of bucolic cooking, heartfelt hospitality, and an enjoyable atmosphere.

What Exactly Is a Burner Card?

While integrated circuit debit and credit cards (also referred to as EMV-chipped cards) have eliminated significant portions of card-present fraud, card-not-present fraud (virtual debit and credit card fraud) has risen steadily in recent years. As a result, card issuers and third-party companies have developed and introduced burner credit cards to combat card-not-present fraud.

Also called virtual credit cards, burner cards function similarly to physical prepaid debit/credit cards. They even have 16 digit card numbers, expiration dates, Card Verification Value (CVV) numbers, and work on most e-commerce sites. They're referred to as burner cards because users can fill them with specific amounts, use them online once or twice, and merely abandon them — like "burner" phones.

Cybercriminals are limited to the amount of money they can defraud people out of since burner credit card numbers are generated randomly. Furthermore, it prevents fraudsters from gaining access to any personal and/or financial information typically linked to real debit and credit cards. Best of all, users don't need to be super tech-savvy to set up and use burner cards.

How This Can Be Applied to Fireside Pies Reservations

If burner credit cards are primarily used to make online purchases, how does that correlate with making reservations? Well, many reservations are made online these days. Not only that, but you can't be sure how seriously the company you're setting up a reservation with takes IT security, or whether they have a habit of abusing their customers' personal information. It is more so the case if it's your first time dealing with a specific business.

For this reason, it's better to take preemptive measures by using a burner card rather than your actual debit or credit card. After all, in this day and age, it's a lot better, in the long run, to be safe than sorry.

General Rule of Thumb for Making Reservations

Having good restaurant reservation etiquette is more important than ever, according to Food & Wine. The article provides the following etiquette tips for making reservations:

  • Consider dining at less conventional times, like 5:30 p.m.
  • Get your dining party together before checking in with the host.
  • If you're going to be late, be sure to call the restaurant, so it has time to make other arrangements. Remember that the owners are trying to run a business. Just because you're a customer doesn't mean you can make them operate on your lack of preparedness.
  • If you have to cancel your reservation, it's crucial to call the restaurant and give as much notice as possible.

A few extra but essential considerations for making restaurant reservations include:

  1. Decide and stick to a certain number of people who will be attending the dining event. For example, don't merely assume it will be eight and add two more 20 minutes before checking in.
  2. Remember that there is no such thing as calling too early to make a reservation. The earlier you set any reservation, the more likely things will go smoothly.
  3. If you've already set up a reservation, it's wise to call and confirm that whoever took it put it in the books. The last thing you want to do is show up only to find out that your party isn't listed.
  4. Lastly, the most important thing as a customer is to be polite to the host and waiters. They have hectic work schedules and deal with rude people day in and day out — don't be one of them.

DoNotPay Doesn’t Think This System Is Fair

Before digital technology made it easier for companies to demand financial information before even providing or guaranteeing service, people made reservations on a good faith basis. In other words, making a reservation was more or less available to everyone, no matter what their economic situation. As long as you arrive at the predetermined time and with payment.

Reservations used to be accessible to everyone and on a good faith basis. We want to make the process of planning and creating reservations less financially stressful and available to everyone again.
