“I am the contrarian here”
Reviewed August 16, 2012

My friends and family all love it. I just think it is OK. This may be Jackson's most popular restaurant. But to me, it is just another place. Gyro's are good, but nothing great. Beer is pedestrian (Bud lite, etc). Food is fast and hot. Ask for whole wheat pita.

“Best Gyros in Jackson”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Keifer's has the best cottage fries and gyros! I recommend trying this place if that is the type of food you are looking to eat! Great atmosphere!

“Great Burger!”
Reviewed April 7, 2012

This location has a burger special every day that are repeated at least twice a week (the Baptist hospital location does not offer burgers). They are excellent! They are big and served with a ton of curly fries. You will not leave hungry. I've never tried the Gyros, but my wife loves the chicken gyro though.

The cons about the place: If you get there after 11:30, you're gonna be in for a wait. The place had two levels, but it is small and gets a lot of the downtown lunch crowd. The daily burger special does not come with a drink, even though it is advertised as a special and costs over $8. Close parking is nonexistent.

Even with these faults, the flavor of the burger makes it all worthwhile!

“Not bad, but not good.”
Reviewed August 23, 2011

I figured I would go and try this one from reading the reviews and how one says better than the other. May have been an off day for them butt service wasn't bad but not nearly as quick as the other keifers over by Baptist Hospital. Feta dressing was ok but tasted way too much like cream cheese more than anything with a hint of feta to it. Though my gyro was really good and cooked well they put way to much sauce inside the wrap. I am willing to go back and give it another try. There atmosphere was really good but the waitress just was not into or something today.
