A C is a good score for a waffle house.

Where is the Cherokee ?

Looks like there may be a systematic breakdown in training of Serve safe and quality management at Kroger in the metro area. Three Kroger's were cited.

Cherokee is one nasty-ass establishment. I see no issues at Madison's Krogers. A 'C' at a Mexican establishment is exceeding expectations. Same for Weurful Houses.

I do love the Cherokee......

The Cherokee is absolutely disgusting. I don't care how good the food is when your feet stick to the floor and you have seen roaches. Not to mention the time a shard of glass ended up in one of my colleague's food. Gross gross establishment.

@ 4:35PM you are correct about the breakdown of the metro area Kroger's. In particular Kroger I-55 North. 1) When you walk in the door you are greeted with employees screaming and cackling with each other from across the store laughing historically at what the other says.
2) If you try to buy deli meat you will probably spend most of the afternoon watching some unpleasant woman operating in slow motion acting annoyed as though she is mad because she actually has to do something. 3) ALL of the shelves are full of date expired products. 4) It Is a hit and miss adventure when you check out. The cashier is either patronizing or down right rude. 5) Judging by the work force "whites need not apply". Actually a white asst. manager was hired a couple of months ago but he is already gone. The chaos created by rampant incompetence was overwhelming. Why has Kroger allowed this store to become a train wreck?

The neighborhood patrons choose to put up with the poor quality. If the patrons raise their standards and come into the store respectfully dressed and not acting like animals, the store will be like those in Flowood and Madison. Don't see anyone in hair rollers and pajama bottoms shopping with barefoot, dirty faced kids shopping there. Think about it.

4:30am, did you miss the Colony Crossing Kroger on the list? Pretty sure that's in Madison...

Clearly Kroger is sending their best managers to the flagship Madison store on 51, and all the others are suffering.

Give us a number where we can put the Cherokee on the watch list!

Epicornius said...

Wrong, 1:15. The meat market has suffered greatly at 51 Kroger in Madison, since Harold's retirement. The current manager of the meat market will not address a customer unless made to. There is constant turnover behind that counter and it's nothing to stand there for two full minutes waiting to be waited on. The products at that meat market, however, are unequaled in the Metro.

The current manager of the Madison Flagship, if I'm not mistaken, came from the 55 Jackson store.

And yes, I saw the Colony Crossing location on the list. If you can read, what I posted was "I see no issues at Madison locations". Grocery stores will always degenerate to the lowest level acceptable to the local clientele. Period.

But, back to the Cherokee. Whether you 'love it' or not, it is nasty. The other poster is right about your shoes sticking to the floor, roaches and general filth. Why do you think the damned place is so dimly lit? The old location was probably cleaner by comparison.

Why did the Fish take down the thread that allowed comment on Winter supporting a particular candidate? Heat in the kitchen?

Kingfish said...

No thread was taken down. Quit lying.

Who is the Hottest Reporter in Jackson?

Trollfest '09

Trollfest '07 was such a success that Jackson Jambalaya will once again host Trollfest '09. Catch this great event which will leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Othor Cain and his band, The Black Power Structure headline the night while Sonjay Poontang returns for an encore performance. Former Frank Melton bodyguard Marcus Wright makes his premier appearance at Trollfest singing "I'm a Sweet Transvestite" from "The Rocky Horror Picture Show." Kamikaze will sing his new hit, “How I sold out to da Man.” Robbie Bell again performs: “Mamas, don't let your babies grow up to be Bells” and “Any friend of Ed Peters is a friend of mine”. After the show, Ms. Bell will autograph copies of her mug shot photos. In a salute to “Dancing with the Stars”, Ms. Bell and Hinds County District Attorney Robert Smith will dance the Wango Tango.

Wrestling returns, except this time it will be a Battle Royal with Othor Cain, Ben Allen, Kim Wade, Haley Fisackerly, Alan Lange, and “Big Cat” Donna Ladd all in the ring at the same time. The Battle Royal will be in a steel cage, no time limit, no referee, and the losers must leave town. Marshand Crisler will be the honorary referee (as it gives him a title without actually having to do anything).

Meet KIM Waaaaaade at the Entergy Tent. For five pesos, Kim will sell you a chance to win a deed to a crack house on Ridgeway Street stuffed in the Howard Industries pinata. Don't worry if the pinata is beaten to shreds, as Mr. Wade has Jose, Emmanuel, and Carlos, all illegal immigrants, available as replacements for the it. Upon leaving the Entergy tent, fig leaves will be available in case Entergy literally takes everything you have as part of its Trollfest ticket price adjustment charge.

Donna Ladd of The Jackson Free Press will give several classes on learning how to write. Smearing, writing without factchecking, and reporting only one side of a story will be covered. A donation to pay their taxes will be accepted and she will be signing copies of their former federal tax liens. Ms. Ladd will give a dramatic reading of her two award-winning essays (They received The Jackson Free Press "Best Of" awards.) "Why everything is always about me" and "Why I cover murders better than anyone else in Jackson".

In the spirit of helping those who are less fortunate, Trollfest '09 adopts a cause for which a portion of the proceeds and donations will be donated: Keeping Frank Melton in his home. The “Keep Frank Melton From Being Homeless” booth will sell chances for five dollars to pin the tail on the jackass. John Reeves has graciously volunteered to be the jackass for this honorable excursion into saving Frank's ass. What's an ass between two friends after all? If Mr. Reeves is unable to um, perform, Speaker Billy McCoy has also volunteered as when the word “jackass” was mentioned he immediately ran as fast as he could to sign up.

In order to help clean up the legal profession, Adam Kilgore of the Mississippi Bar will be giving away free, round-trip plane tickets to the North Pole where they keep their bar complaint forms (which are NOT available online). If you don't want to go to the North Pole, you can enjoy Brant Brantley's (of the Mississippi Commission on Judicial Performance) free guided tours of the quicksand field over by High Street where all complaints against judges disappear. If for some reason you are unable to control yourself, never fear; Judge Houston Patton will operate his jail where no lawyers are needed or allowed as you just sit there for minutes... hours.... months...years until he decides he is tired of you sitting in his jail. Do not think Judge Patton is a bad judge however as he plans to serve free Mad Dog 20/20 to all inmates.

Trollfest '09 is a pet-friendly event as well. Feel free to bring your dog with you and do not worry if your pet gets hungry, as employees of the Jackson Zoo will be on hand to provide some of their animals as food when it gets to be feeding time for your little loved one.

Relax at the Fox News Tent. Since there are only three blonde reporters in Jackson (being blonde is a requirement for working at Fox News), Megan and Kathryn from WAPT and Wendy from WLBT will be on loan to Fox. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both and a torn-up Obama yard sign will entitle you to free drinks served by Megan, Wendy, and Kathryn. Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required. Just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '09 is for EVERYONE!!!

This is definitely a Beaver production.

Trollfest '07

Jackson Jambalaya is the home of Trollfest '07. Catch this great event which promises to leave NE Jackson & Fondren in flames. Sonjay Poontang and his band headline the night with a special steel cage, no time limit "loser must leave town" bout between Alan Lange and "Big Cat"Donna Ladd following afterwards. Kamikaze will perform his new song F*** Bush, he's still a _____. Did I mention there was no referee? Dr. Heddy Matthias and Lori Gregory will face off in the undercard dueling with dangling participles and other um, devices. Robbie Bell will perform Her two latest songs: My Best Friends are in the Media and Mama's, Don't Let Your Babies Grow up to be George Bell. Sid Salter of The Clarion-Ledger will host "Pin the Tail on the Trial Lawyer", sponsored by State Farm.

There will be a hugging booth where in exchange for your young son, Frank Melton will give you a loooong hug. Trollfest will have a dunking booth where Muhammed the terrorist will curse you to Allah as you try to hit a target that will drop him into a vat of pig grease. However, in the true spirit of Separate But Equal, Don Imus and someone from NE Jackson will also sit in the dunking booth for an equal amount of time. Tom Head will give a reading for two hours on why he can't figure out who the hell he is. Cliff Cargill will give lessons with his .80 caliber desert eagle, using Frank Melton photos as targets. Tackleberry will be on hand for an autograph session. KIM Waaaaaade will be passing out free titles and deeds to crackhouses formerly owned by The Wood Street Players.

If you get tired come relax at the Fox News Tent. To gain admittance to the VIP section, bring either your Republican Party ID card or a Rebel Flag. Bringing both will entitle you to free drinks.Get your tickets now. Since this is an event for trolls, no ID is required, just bring the hate. Bring the family, Trollfest '07 is for EVERYONE!!!
