Two questions:

1) Why list the reason beside only two of them?

2) How the hell does Drago's avoid this list?

If the Cherokee only got a C, they didn't go into the kitchen or bathroom

What the hell is going on in Ridgeland?

For the most part, Mexicans and former Jackson residents.

Maybe the Ridgeland inspector is actually doing a thorough job.

Like it's always been said on here, Ridgeland isn't what is used to be 10 years ago. The schools are going down, the crime is going up, and in half of the place the property values are really dropping. Northpark mall is looking like the Metrocenter did in 2000...

Those in Ridgeland east should take note and get out while your homes still have some value.

Whole Foods Sushi? That is surprising

C IS for Cherokee. Won't stop me one bit. Bring on them wings, pizza, club, burger, Cherokee po-boy, roast beef, and on and on and on.

When I counted 5 fast food chicken restaurants within a half-mile radius of the intersection of Ridgewood and County Line Rd, I knew where things were going.

Kingfish said...

You are really stupid.

So let's go to Madison. Within a half mile to a mile is CFA, KFC, and Popeyes. Same thing in Brandon where Hwy 80 meets Crossgates. Want me to name more cities and hit for the cycle?

I bet you think those areas are all going down to, don't you? Probably not because they are white in your eyes.

Sorry Kingfish, but us Madison residents that have lived our whole lives there are definitely aware that it is going down hill. Ever go to the Madison justice court? To say the demographics have drastically changed is an under statement. Our walmart is far from safe now as well.

Much like Ridgeland, as more and more Jackson residents move to Madison, they bring their ways with them.

To 9:17 & 9:41, I've lived in Ridgeland pretty much all of my life! Yes we do have an abundance of Mexicans, but they're just in one part of Ridgeland, and so what?! Do you hate a little diversity? It shouldn't even matter what color or nationality they are! Sure Highland Elementary is a D, & Ridgeland High is a C, and there a lot of Blacks here now as well. But I guess most of you don't even bother to look at the Ridgeland arrest record when it comes out every week in the Madison County Journal! Because most of the crimes committed in Ridgeland is contempt of court, marijuana arrests that wouldn't even be if they would just go ahead and legalize the damn shit, & it's shoplifting in various places in town. Every now and then you see domestic violence-simple assault, but other than that there isn't anything further! You're only saying Ridgeland is going down because it isn't all White like it used to be! It's just like Northeast Jackson, it isn't all White anymore so you ignorant people come on here and say it's going down! Wow.

0705: What's is your problem with Drago's? Please expand if you can.

'sure highland elementary is a D, & Ridgeland high is a C'

Thanks for proving my point for me. These were top tier schools (for Mississippi) just ten years ago. Fewer and fewer middle class families are moving to Ridgeland, because the schools aren't worth a damn. Ridgeland is quickly headed down the path of northeast Jackson.

And you think your illegal neighbors will stay in just one part of town?

Don't get me wrong, I don't mean to belittle Ridgeland. The whole State is f*cked.

ever wait tables? if you have, then you know what is wrong at Drago's Hard to make a living not getting tips.

Standin' Watch Up There said...

Drago's also has a nasty kitchen. Ask anybody who has ever been in it. Also they have an unsanitary cleaning procedure for the grill.

And speaking of Madison, if Mary has her way, Popeyes will be gone ass gone. It's a joint. Not sure exactly what keeps caps from being popped in the parking lot. Same with Burger King. If places like that continue to creep in, Madison will melt well between Canton and Ridgeland.

And King is wrong for lumping Chick Fil A in with greasy chicken joints.

Oyster On The Floor said...

If Dragos ever stops giving discounts to city of Jacktown employees, they'll go belly up. The first month they were open you could hardly park for all the white cars with Jacktown painted across the rocker panel. Look around if you go in that place.

Dear Standin':

How about some more information?
And 3:37, been there all times of the day. I'll be damned if I haven't seen those cars.

"Not sure exactly what keeps caps from being popped in the parking lot. Same with Burger King."

Even for Burger King it's got poorly prepared food, but in 15 years of driving by the place I've never seen or heard of any violence there.

Anonymous said...

A helicopter search was involved in one of those Madison Burger King heists. Cops were all over the intersection of 463 and Highland Colony intersection with at least one helicopter overhead.

But.....10:28 ain't seen nuttin'.

Soulshine in the Township sucks, it is hot, poorly managed, dirty, expensive, and the hostesses could give a shit if you live or die.

10:28 here

I used the word "violence" - complainers raise the issue of theft (and an inside, employee-run job at that).

I was thinking about the shooting at the McDonald's on 51 in Madison a few years ago. Much more worrisome than an inside job theft to me.

Anonymous said...

Don't worry folks. Since Madison is a college town now with JSU, I'm sure incidents described at 8:18 will decrease.

Drive Thru said...

10:28 and 8:18; This thread is about restaurant quality which translates to service. Inside employee thefts are much more likely to affect product and service (and wind you up on the "C" list) than somebody poppin' a cap in the parking area once in forty years.

Just admit you weren't aware of any of this and move along.......

Wow, this blog is pretty entertaining...looks to me like the white flight has a few leaders...shame on you all!

I own three inspected locations and two are in Mad Co. They had a very competent inspector but he retired. There is a new inspector...very young and sullen who is killing restaurants for minor infractions. About half of these places shouldn't b here but if u work for government it doesn't matter does it?

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!!!
