Pallookaville Fine Foods Restaurant Review: While renovating his popular Avondale Estates eatery, Jim Stacy sold the place, yet he remains as a consultant. The kitchen is now closed off from view and double doors open onto the patio; the basic feel was not disturbed. Launched from a food truck, this funky establishment brims with frolicking fun, and the approach to food is serious. Milkshakes and malteds may cost a bit more than at standard outlets; however, they are made with fine quality ingredients. Boiled peanuts, a Southern fixation, are well done. We enjoy Pallookaville’s Reuben, a substantial two-hander that may be ordered grilled. If you have one corn dog a year, have it here. All sausages are sourced from the Pine Street Market, right up the street. Brunswick stew has great flavor but could be a little juicier. Choose from a spicy black bean chili, beef burgers and the original pork burgers. Northerners find familiar dishes such as poutine with curds hailing from Wisconsin, and egg creams, a New York favorite. Adult libations include grown-up milkshakes and plenty of brews. It's okay to bring the family canine to the patio, but by law Pooch must remain outside the patio gate.
