“Great Gyros”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 25 February 2014

Found this restaurant on my travels back and forth to downtown Jackson. Retaurant is located across the street from the governor's mansion in downtown Jackson. Great gyros and greek salads. I always get an gyro with greek salad. The gyro is made to order and the gyro meat is spiced just right. The greek salad dressing is very tasty. Counter staff are friendly. Restaurant is clean with ample seating. I have eaten here numerous times and the food quality is consistent. Would definitely recommend to anybody wanting tasty greek food.

“Not authentic Greek, but who cares...it's still yummy!”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 8 February 2014 via mobile

We stop here on our way through Jackson frequently. This time we just picked up food to go. The renovated restaurant is much easier to access and flows better inside. The food, though not authentic Greek necessarily (my mother was from Greece), is still very tasty and plentiful! Can't go wrong with gyro sandwich. Tried the tuna for first time and it was delicious. Great advice from someone on here to try the cucumber salad. Very good. Overall, I highly recommend for some good food.

“Read this you will not eat here. ”
1 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 12 January 2014 via mobile

These people don't know Greek food god help them.
Everything taste like it was pre cooked, wrapped with plastic then put in the fridge don't eat here.
If you have never ate Greek food and you eat here, you'll never eat Greek again. Oh yea and service was very bad. We had a waiter with tattoos up his arms looked like an mma fighter. After eating garbage we got up to leave and I only left a10% tip normally I leave 20% and the waiter looked at me like I just handed him ten grand.
Mississippi wow.

“Consistent, reasonable, and delicious”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 7 January 2014

While as noted in some reviews that Keifer's is not the most authentic Greek or Mediterranean restaurant in the world, it remains popular among the populace of the greater Jackson Area mainly because of the atmosphere, consistency, fair prices, and great food. The Gyros served at Keifer's are always fresh and quickly delivered to your table. Ironically, the busier Keifer's appears to be, the faster the service will be. I generally do not order the traditional Gyro from Keifer's but opt for the Chicken Gyro instead which utilizes the flavor of seasoned and seared chicken, Gyro style, garnished with onions, tomatoes, and lettuce and smothered in an unique honey mustard sauce. The Pita Mozz and Hummus is a good way to start your meal. Overall, Keifer's is a fun place to share a meal and a beer with a small or large group of friends. It is an ideal place to grab a quick lunch on a short lunch break from work.

“I don't get it”
2 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 6 January 2014

I still don't get why Keifer's is so popular. Is it because people haven't had good Mediterranean or Greek food before? The flavors are completely off and the hummus is terrible. It's a popular eating destination in Jackson probably because it's reasonably priced and considered to be "different". You're better off trying a gyro on the streets of NYC. When in Jackson, Mississippi try something else!
