Kiefer's robbed

The Keifer's restaurant on Poplar Street was robbed last night.  An employee apparently left the back door ajar.  A gentleman came through the back door and robbed the restaurant.  He was armed with a pistol.  The loss is estimated to be between $500-1,000.  The suspect is a black male who was wearing a purple hoodie.  His face was covered.  There were no injuries. The incident happened after closing when only a few employees were present.

Doesn't sound like something a "gentleman" would do.

That was no gentlemen! That was a thug!

You seem to have left something out of the story. Like, how do you know what he was wearing or that he had a pistol? If there were others present, this is armed robbery, right? Is there a video? Are there witnesses to the gentleman's actions? Were there customers in the establishment?

Nice way to toss that top-water cricket out there on the pond.

It's called 'reporting'. You talk to witnesses and cops and stuff. Get your own blog, and pull that corncob out.

There have been multiple vehicles broken into in their parking lot in the past few years. They have in turn been forced to install cameras on all the light poles in the parking lot. Trust me when I say they weren't too excited to do so. Several people have said they thought it was shady dealings. That said, this sounds like an inside job all the way.

This shouldn't come as a surprise to anyone.

6:26; Actually it's called copying a police report without completing the story. Corncob THAT, Junior.

Have any of you trolls been there to eat lately? I wished I owned that place. They are doing an incredible business. Stay in suburbia, they don't need your business anyway.

But seriously, people going in and out the back door so they can throw things in the garbage, empty mops buckets, etc, etc. does not equal an inside job.

But then again after looking at all the fake news on Facebook over the past year, I can see why some of you knuckleheads believe anything.

You said it. That certainly was one helluva fake news Facebook story coming out of Ferguson.

What is the story on Peopeye's on High Street closing? That chicken will be dearly missed downtown. The place was nasty, but the chicken was great and didn't seem they hurt for business.

Kingfish said...

It's a crappy franchise. They lock the lobby doors at six or seven. Then you have to wait 15 minutes or so in drive thru while they make more. Don't forget to count your pieces as well.

No such problems at Lakeland or I-55 locations. The attitudes of the employees at the Lakeland location ( know its technically not on Lakeland) sometimes rivals the employees at CFA.

Did this happen with customers present or after hours?

Definitely an inside job. Probably the same employee who runs the marijuana break club between Kiefer's and the gas station.

Yep. My wife and I ate there last Wednesday night. The food is not nearly as good as it used to be. The feta on the feta place tasted like cardboard. They didn't even put any tzatziki sauce on my chicken gyro,for crying out loud. Will not go back any time soon.

@ 8:12 - I don't as much as I used to when I lived in NE Jackson. I frequent Krilakis in Ridgeland now, but it's meat is not as good. The fries at Krilakis are much better than the cottage fry at Kiefers. Krilakis is also much more reasonably priced and you can brown bag wine and beer.

What is CFA? Why don't all you people just continue eating at Dragos where they mop the grill with that nasty floor mop? But, please, go ahead and tell me the heat of the flame will kill all that nasty shit on the mop.

CFA = Chick-Fil-A

I think Kristos in Madison is better than Keifer's for gyros, but I do like the hot dog wrap they make at the downtown lunch location.

Anonymous said...

Anyone who thinks Kristos has better food than keifers has clearly burnt all their taste buds off. It's not even remotely close.

Anonymous said...

In this day and time when foreigners are doing their best to belittle, if not kill us all, why do any of you goobs want to seek out greaser-venues that offer goat meat, rancid cheese, flattened hog jowl, salted stomach and gas-station gyros?

Oh wait....don't answer....I know; it's because it's cool and 'we are the world'.

Anonymous said...

Athenos is the best Greek food around. If you haven't tried it, you're missing out. Keifers isn't worth taking a risk of getting robbed/killed, for just mediocre food, and Kristos is too greasy.

6:43 - dumbest comment of the day.

6:43, I've been thinking the same things, for about thirty years. On the bright side, we've saved a lot of money, avoiding restaurants whenever possible, and have become pretty good (and healthy) cooks.

Anonymous said...

Keifers is not owned by foreigners. In fact it was initially established by two enterprising young Mississippi ladies in the early 1980s.

BTW 6:43 PM, you...., never mind...!

Popeye's in Madison is the most incompetent fast food establishment on the planet, and has been for the last 20 years. There should be an award for that kind of consistency.

Popeyes hasn't been in Madison for twenty years. But, they are awful at serving what was ordered and the only time they were really relevant was when they had breakfast, with grits on the menu. Otherwise its a trashy dump that the entire city administration and population which were gone the hell out of here.

Burnt off taste buds said...

I'm always f***ing amused by the faux-gourmands who attack anyone on this site whose taste wavers even the slightest bit from their own. Take, for example, Chauncey here who sneers at Madison County dining because Jacksonians have a more discriminating palate, especially those living on McDowell Road or over by the Zoo.

I like Kristos and my taste buds are just fine. However Jingle Bells at 3:13 disagrees, but he can't just disagree, he has to attack anyone who might not like EXACTLY what he likes.

Go eat your Bisquick sandwiches and STFU, mongoloid.

Kingfish said...

The hamburgers at Krilakis are pretty good as well.

Look, Keifers is pretty good as are the others. Just be thankful we have a selection of some decent places that sell this type of food.

The door was propped open while employees were taking out the trash. The gunman was behind the dumpster and came out with the gun and made the two employees outside tie each other up. He went through the building and pulled people out back by pointing the gun at them and then took money and keys and bolted. It was around 930-945, technically before they close at 10. Crazy how people report this and don't know truly what happened. Don't believe everything you read.

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.
