In his 50 years on earth, Stacy has sung in a punk rock band called BigTop (he hit the stage dressed as a clown), run both the Star Bar in Little Five Points and the Starlight Drive-In Theatre on Moreland Avenue, and performed with a short-lived burlesque group called the Dong Squad. “Every seven years or so, I try something new,” he says.
In 2013, chef Jim Stacy opened carni-food restaurant Pallookaville in Avondale Estates. Now, he’s expanding on his original vision to include Pallookaville Junior—a takeout-only spot opening in April or May in Little Five Points—while working on plans for a Hawaiian meat-and-three restaurant called Moakai and an old-fashioned donut, biscuit and coffee shop.
Corn dog maven Jim Stacy recently landed his first high-profile television show, Offbeat Eats with Jim Stacy, on the Cooking Channel. In the pilot episode, he hunts down food inspired by monster movies at restaurants in Atlanta, San Diego, and Easthampton, Massachusetts.
I’m studying the drink section of the carnival-meets-deli menu at Pallookaville Fine Foods, wrapping my head around the list of over thirty soda fountain syrup flavors. Some options sound like death by sweetness (butterscotch, marshmallow), others intrigue (including papaya and especially tiger’s blood, which combines watermelon, strawberry, and coconut). But finally I fall back on a favorite treat from the rare soda fountains—already a dying breed in the 1980s—that I encountered in my youth.
ATL Food Chatter: March 8, 2010 (To receive the Chatter and other culinary tidbits directly in your inbox, sign up for our weekly dining newsletter)Jim Stacy is a colorful Atlanta character whose full-bearded face is well known among Atlanta’s timeless independent restaurants such as the Colonnade and the Beautiful Restaurant in Cascade Heights. Last year, he filmed Get Delicious: Atlanta’s Hidden Restaurant Treasures, which aired on WPBA. And because of the public’s response to the initial project, there may be an opportunity to have more episodes of the program produced.
