About Us: Paul and Toula Alatzakis have been serving the greater Waukegan area for more than 22 years, although the Peacock Restaurant first opened its doors in 1993. The couple saw the bright building on the corner of Grand and McAree Avenues and quickly fell in love with the business potential the location offered. Within days both Paul and Toula began creating different aspects of their new restaurant.The premise was simple:Offer quality, homemade food and soup at low prices, with exceptional service. Paul handled the business side of operations, including vending contracts and personnel.Toula, the creative one of the marriage, took care of the restaurants look, including interior and exterior designs.All that lacked was a name. For weeks they tossed around ideas with each other and with friends, when finally, their daughter, inspired by the restaurant's color scheme, suggested The Peacock.The name stuck and on August 15, 1993 The Peacock Family Restaurant opened its doors to many new customers as well as loyal friends.
