My first visit was in 1985 and I have loved every meal since then! The newer location needs another several years to 'patina' to feel like the previous but the food will carry me until then. Start with a pita motzzz with creamy feta sauce (I could bathe in this stuff) and the award winning hummus. Then go with the... More

The food is the best Greek food you will get outside of the isles themselves. Everything is good - no really everything! The cottage fries are not to be missed and not something typical of Greek cuisine but delicious! The service is fast and not always the friendliest , parking is horrible and at times the wait is long. However... More

My Wife and I regularly consider stopping in at Keifer's for Lunch, but parking can be a real problem at certain times of the day (read downtown Lunch crowd). That alone speaks to the popularity of this Restaurant (been this way for at least the last decade or so). We have adjusted our timing recently to 1 hour later and... More

I was craving a good gyro, and I had read the reviews on here as well as from Food Network's On The Road app. I got there at the lunch rush. It was packed, and I was lucky to find a parking space. Once I went inside, I was told I could sit anywhere I wanted. I chose to sit... More

We were not expecting a lot from a "Greek" restaurant named "Keifer's." Shallow, I know... but there it is. The Greek salad was large and well made; the falafel wrap was simply amazing. Wow. Great flavor and texture - and the sauce wasn't crazy strong with cucumber flavor. We'll be back when we're in town - love this place!

I was only in Jackson for one night and I got a recommendation from the lady at my hotel for this place when I asked, 'where do the locals eat?' She named off a slew of fast food joints first and then said Keifers. She said it's Mediterranean and I was sold. After a day of driving, I was eager... More

We have eaten here 1-2 times a year since 2004. Don't expect too much out this place and you won't be disappointed. Can get pricey for what is essentially fast food. Gyros are pretty standard fare. If you don't like Tzatziki sauce, make sure to mention or ask for it on the side. Waitstaff is always in a hurry, but... More

I've eaten at Keifer's since 1980. In fact, though there have always been several restaurants owned and operated by Greek-American families, Keifer's was the first Greek restaurant I experienced in my life. I have lived in Atlanta for nearly 20 years, and I have eaten at many Greek restaurants around the Atlanta Metro Area. Many of them are quite good,... More

I eat here every time I am in the metro Jackson area and it (almost) never disappoints (see below). I LOVE the Beef and Cheese wrap and Cottage fries with Feta sauce. There is nothing better than getting/burning my hands on a beef and cheese too hot to pick up - they melt the mozzarella through the soft, fresh pita!... More

We were on our way to the Eudora Welty home, and while we were waiting for traffic, happened to have a chance to ask a local policeman where would be a good place to have lunch. Without hesitation he said, KIEFER's. He gave us quick instructions, and then we were off. Glad he sent us there. Perhaps the best gyro... More
