Love this place. Fast service and friendly staff. Food excellent. Do get the gyro! There's no place like this in downtown Jackson. Special "hats off" to the employees who seem to LOVE helping you!

This is my third time at this restaurant; each time, the service was prompt, food was hot and tasty. Each person in my group loved what they ordered; salads are great, as are everything that they put on pitas.

One visit to Keifer's and you will be counting the days until your next gyro! The menu offers anything one could want from a Greek restaurant. Be sure to order the cottage fried potato. It is big enough for 2 people to share. Their service is great and one's order comes out quickly. It's a great atmosphere with indoor and... More

Keifers is a Jackson favorite offering the best Gyros in town. Always busy. Relaxed atmosphere with a great greek fare selection. Share the fries-get a gyro or try the salads. If in the mood, have a beer.

I loved Keifer's Downtown when I was in college, and I returned this fall to see if it conjure up some memories. Not many memories, but the food is still good!

When I lived in Jackson 20 years ago, I ate here all the time. The gyros were the best. When I was pregnant, I craved the tuna salad one. Everything is good. When we go through there we always try to stop.

We were in town for the day and decided to go to Keifer's. We have been going to Keifer's since it opened in its original location across the street. We are always pleased to see that the new location is so similar to the old location, and the food and atmosphere are just as good! We both had the falafel... More

Enjoy lunch here quite often - many times, order take-out. If you call ahead, they always have it ready for you upon arrival. Staff very efficient and friendly. My favs are the grilled chicken gyro and the grilled chicken salad.

As far as Greek/Mediterranean restaurants go in the Jackson area, Keifer's is my favorite. Their gyro meat has a better flavor than the other places around town, so I always order a gyro with a small Greek salad. I work downtown within walking distance to this location but others have told me that their other location is the place to... More
