The pizza joint is in the Northlake Festival Shopping Center.
Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint has opened its Northlake location. The new restaurant opened in Northlake Festival Shopping Center on Lavista Road over the weekend, according to Tucker.11alive.com. From the story: Owner Brett Pearman said, "I chose to open an Uncle Maddio's because I was blown away by their 'Served with Love' culture, by the taste, and how they interact with the community."

Toco Hill's Uncle Maddio's Pizza Joint has had its share of struggles in a dim economy over the last several years, but, for the most part, business has been good, the restaurant's owner said last week.

From the story: The pizza restaurant started in January 2009 in the Toco Hills Shopping Center in Druid Hills. “We opened then, when the [economic] floor fell out,” he said. “We came out of the gate with guns blazing.” Although he said they had to “weather the storm through the economy,” he considers the pizza business to be somewhat recession proof because people do not usually make it at home. He said Uncle Maddio’s is similar to Moe’s, where …

The regional chain, which started in Toco Hill, will move into Northlake Festival early next year.

It has taken more than four decades, but finally Hollywood has it right.
This week's movie: Rise of the Planet of the Apes Chimps, gorillas and other primates take some mind-altering drugs and give a big hairy smackdown to the puny humans in this week's featured film, Rise of the Planet of the Apes. James Franco plays a scientist trying to find a cure for Alzheimer's disease, the same disease that has stricken his father (played by John Lithgow).

Caesar grows up to be a very smart monkey – a little too smart. As a result, he is sent to a "primate shelter" or, as I call it, ape prison. Angered by his incarceration, Caesar uses his brain to rally the other …
