Taxi's BBQ & Catering’s chefs slow-smoke tender Texas-style brisket, ribs, and chicken on-location to spice up parties and special events. Homestyle sides complement barbecue entrees and range from potato salad to baked beans to Taxi's taters—chive mashed potatoes crowned with cheddar cheese and bacon. Taxi’s hickory-smoked cuisine is also available for carryout and delivery for those incapable of using forks in the presence of others.
From simple and elegant town cars to 30-passenger party buses, All About Transportation has vehicle for every occasion. Sedans and SUVs swoop customers to airports and business meetings, while limos, Hummers, and party buses equipped with sound systems and neon lighting set the stage for bachelorette parties and casino trips.
Drawing on half a century of automotive service, Midas helps drivers to prolong vehicle vigour with factory-recommended maintenance services. Mechanics pop car hoods to perform oil changes with standard and temperature-durable synthetic solutions, taking time to inspect belts, hoses, fluids, and the air conditioner's resident penguin. Armed with efficient catalytic converters built to U.S. EPA standards, the staff helps to shrink harmful emissions during muffler and exhaust-system checks. Trained technicians augment brake services with lifetime guarantees and curate healthy, evenly worn tires with rotations or replacements from Goodyear, Michelin, Firestone, and Bridgestone.
Sam Meineke opened his three-bay muffler shop in 1972 with a single product line, and through time, he and his successors have expanded the business into a complete automotive car-care center. Today, nearly 900 franchise owners operate their locations around the globe, still standing on the firm foundation of Sam's ideal of nursing vehicles back to health at fair prices. Meineke Car Care Center's mechanics perform an array of services, keeping rides running in showroom condition with tune-ups, 23-point inspections, tire rotations, and deep-tissue windshield massages.
Outfitting autos in Oklahoma for 40 years, Bob Moore Auto Group has since expanded its services to Lone Star–state motorists seeking reliable care for their rides. Auto sprucing treatments commence by quenching thirsty tanks with a standard oil change followed by a burst of tire-boosting nitrogen, which results in more uniform wear and better gas mileage than tires filled with heavy regret. Once greased and plump, cars get a multipoint probe to inspect batteries, belts, and breaks, and they get wiper blade and defroster checks. Heaters and hoses get equal scrutiny, and tapped antifreeze and other fluids are replenished. Once complete, the ASC-certified technicians send drivers on their way with an emergency-kit list that will come in handy in case of roadside breakdowns or the occasional wrong turn into a rancor pit.
An autumn harvest fair. A Memorial Day celebration, punctuated by a 21-gun salute. A kids' summer camp complete with archery, swimming, and a meet-and-greet with a friendly raccoon mascot. These are just a few of the events hosted by Grand Prairie Parks & Rec, a department that has garnered a Gold Medal from the National Recreation and Parks Association. Its recreational facilities––including a pool with an aquatic climbing wall––and frequent social events bring the city together year round. Under the bright sun or starry skies, visitors can dance at a concert in the park, rather than just dancing to the rhythmic creak of a swing set. For longer excursions, the 791 lakeside acres of Loyd Park feature 221 campsites replete with cabins, picnic areas, and trails. There, visitors can paddle out on the water in a rented kayak, play a game of volleyball, or sleep overnight under the stars.
