The word Palookaville is an extension of this slang to refer to a place of simple people or simple principles

Consistent, Quality, Friendly Service to everybody! By forgoing a few of the luxury elements of dining like table service, linen etc and removing the ‘fluff’ we are able to improve the quality of the ingredients and the preparation of the dishes to bring you a better deal. At the end of the day what would you prefer a great meal at a great price or an average meal, with mediocre table service and a pretty table setting?
Each year Americans discard more than 45 billion Kilos of good food.
Thats almost 1/3 of all prepared food. If 5% was recovered, it could provide the equivalent of a day's food for four million hungry people;
10%, eight million; and 25%, 20 million! And that’s just the U.S.!
