After temporarily closing in January to take care of some "pressing mechanical repairs" and upgrade the dining room and kitchen, corn dog emporium Pallookaville Fine Foods is ready to reopen. The Avondale Estates favorite will begin serving once again Tuesday at 5 p.m., it announced on Twitter and Facebook.
Founder Jim Stacy revealed in December plans to sell the restaurant, and the transaction was completed shortly after Pallookaville went on hiatus. The new owners, James Maggard and Jason Hylton of Matador Cantina in Oakhurst and Local No. 7 and FiveSevenTwo in Tucker, are keeping Stacy on board to be the face of the restaurant. The bearded chef told Decaturish upon completing the sale, "All the recipes, all the crazy stuff will still be me."
In addition to Pallookaville's return, the team eventually will open Pallookaville Junior, a second, take-out-only location planned for Little Five Points. Though, there's no timeline for when that project might be ready to launch. Stacy previously mentioned two more ventures as well: an unnamed coffeeshop and a Hawaiian-inspired meat-and-three called Moakai.
