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

We've been coming to Keifer's for over 20 years, both in their old location and their new one. The food is consistently great, and the service is quite fast. The restaurant is casual and family-friendly. One of Jackson's true gems.

Keifer's is the place everyone goes for a great gyro in Jackson. It's a huge favorite with the high school crowd, and the love continues to bring people back after they've left the city.

A few of us coworkers ate lunch here and all enjoyed it. The service was excellent and so was the food. The menu is varied and offers a great selection of food. I recommend this place to anyone, but especially if you work in the downtown area, looking for good food and fast/easy service.

Best Greek food! Great variety of choices on the menu. Nice place to eat. Servers are usually very busy and unhelpful, but the food is delicious. I always stop in when I'm in Jackson.

They gyros are good, but nothing to write home about. Plus they charge $3 for fries. I'd definitely recommend this place to others but it's not a first pick for me.
