Pallookaville Fine Foods Restaurant Review: Jim Stacy's funky establishment started life as a food truck, and while the atmosphere is frolicking and fun, his approach to food is serious. So milkshakes may cost a bit more but are made with organic ingredients. The milk is from Southern Swiss Dairy just south of Augusta, a fine family-run operation that raises Brown Swiss cows. Bacon is made around the corner at the Pine Street Market, whose owner sources his meat from pasture-raised hogs at Gum Creek Farms in Carroll County. We enjoy Pallookaville’s take on the Reuben, a substantial two-hander that may be ordered grilled but doesn't automatically come that way. If you have one corndog a year, this is where you should have it. Determined to dine healthy? Salads abound. Boiled peanuts, a Southern fixation, are well done. Northerners looking for familiar fare will find poutine, for which the curds come from Wisconsin, and egg creams. Adult libations include spirits --- even a locally made moonshine from Dawsonville --- and plenty of brews.
