Here we go again.

A restaurant frequented by one-percenters was forced to shut down today due to a break in a water main at the intersection of Jefferson Street and Manship:

We have a restaurant like that in Madison, only better. It's called Wendy's. I've been eating their for years. I wouldn't spend a dime in Jackson.

I got lost on the one percenters part.

Management was much nicer about it than most posters. I guess they are good citizens for even trying to locate there. Great food by the way.

What difference does iy make what segment of the population frequents the restaurant?

6:30 it's actually an excellent eatery.

Best burger in the state hands down. The dinner menu is phenomenal. @ 5:59 Stay your punk ass in Madison and enjoy your Wendy's slop. Thanks for the heads up KF.

One percenters??? You mean outlaw motorcycle gang members??

A madisonite who loves Wendy's wouldn't know a good meal, or a good restaurant, if it was handed to him on a silver platter. Probably wouldn't recognize silver anyway. Lou's is a great local restaurant. In the same shopping center as the old Jitney 14 (that parts a trivia question).

For the uninformed, it's one of the best restaurants in the Metro area.

Meh. Pretty good but not the best, certainly not "hands down" the best.

Maybe you should get out more.

Noel said...

Woohoo, it been awhile since I was a one percenter! I'm a fan of
Lou's

The Madison Wendy has better burgers than the Jackson Wendy. But the best burger is at Sonics in Pearl. Errbody know that.

Suburban Guy said...

I've only been there once, but it was really good. It's definitely one of the better restaurants in Jackson. Hope they're able to open up again soon.

I ate there once last year. The burger was undercooked and my truck was broken into. I'll never go back. However, I do wish for the restaurants success. If for no other reason than to help keep the Jackson residents in Jackson.

Anonymous said...

The one per cent he is speaking of are the numerous families that live in NE Jackson. The Madison people at at the nice establishments built and owned by citizens of jackson. Also Jackson guys like Mattice (Renaissance) juniker jewelers family live in jackson. Could list many more. My neighbor opened a restaurant in Madison recently. I live in woodland hill.i get tired of the people on here putting down other areas... 463 restaurant is Jackson owned. People that can afford to send 3 kids to private schools are the people in jackson.

Anonymous said...

Apparently some douche bag Is actually comparing Wendy's in madison to Lou's?? First off folks don't blame the guy bc Lou's doesn't take EBT unlike Wendy's in madison... if you would like some convicted felon cooking your burger because he gets dropped off on from a white MDOC van in the morning than have at it... if you want some of the best food in this jackson metro area Lou's it is... ESPECIALLY PORK CHOP THURSDAY FOR LUNCH!! Great people that work at and own Lou's!!!

SPOONER FOR SHERIFF

One percenters because the other 99% fell into pot holes

Lou's is great. It's maybe for one-percenters because it's hard to walk out without spending $25 or so. The dessert is so good, the burgers...so good, the pasta... so good....whoever said Wendy's was better, close but no cigar.

Don't forget that Ridgeland shopping district on Jackson street has coattails owned by Jackson resident Yates construction daughter also the plastic surgery center located there is owned by Jackson resident.

Anonymous said...

and highland village and maywood mart are owned by PEOPLE FROM ANOTHER STATE!

What's your point?

And Mattiace doesnt own Renaissance. Deeper pockets are the owners and they don't live in Jackson. And Bill Yates lives in Philadelphia. And he owns the Outlets in Pearly too. You would almost think it is very common for developers to not live where they own properties. You're an idiot.

Why does KF hate Lou?

I can understand hating Henry LaRose.....but not Lou.

What a rude tag line.

Kingfish said...

Meatloaf sammich there is very good.

Anonymous said...

Never said Bill Yates lives in Jackson moron read the post. I said his daughter and Jason live in Jackson. Owner of coat tails. I know bill well nice guy. Went to Ole miss with my brother before he had a penny to his name. My point is the wealthy people live in Jackson. I know it cost more and it's due to private schools. Also, we all agree Jackson lacks middle class and this is why. Haves and the have nots.

To 8:59 & 5:49

6:55's right. As a recent (infamous) person said, "At this point what difference does it really make?"

Jackson HOMEOWNERS are screwed... Jackson BUSINESS owners are screwed.

But... if your sugar-daddy's taking care of YOU, ride it.

People of MS need to take pride in their capital city regardless if you live in the burbs or elsewhere for that matter. The capitol is a reflection of all residents of MS. So take your medicine and buy in or else it will continue to crumble.

I'm still amazed at which KF entries draw the most comments.

If he ever posts one about a hot tennis girl at a NE Jackson restaurant with an SEC coach the internet might break.

Looks to me like we're being trolled by our blogger. Looks to me like it worked.

lol nice try 8:59. The money is in Madison County. There's numerous houses where the land the house sits on is worth more than your old ghetto mansion. Those houses actually increase in value, I doubt there's a single house in Jackson that is gaining value. The little money that is left in Jackson is leaving everyday. Good luck riding the sinking ship to the bottom.

Anonymous said...

8:22am, I know damn well you said the daughter. Your point was that the money lives in Jackson. Mine is that it doesn't mean shit. The Yates' money lives in Philadelphia (yes, every dime the daughter has comes from daddy), so does that make Philly better than Jackson? Wasn't your point to try to pump up Jackson and insult Madison? Mine was to show you that where someone lives is completely irrelevant to where they seek profit.

Kind of sad when Bernie supporters don't realize they too are of the one percent. Nice troll KF!

11:08,
Actually there are very nice houses in NE Jackson that hold value. Look at the new development on meadow lake circle. The boat houses are worth more than most mansions. Look at the new massive house at end of Brecon Drive. These lots go for over 350k alone. But, I agree with the post earlier asking why people put down other peoples communities. Let people live where they choose.

One of the Chef's at Lou'--Hunter Evans--may very well be the best Chef in the state. Look for him to do big things in the near future.

Who the hell would know where the 'old Jitney (insert store number)' was in Jackson?

If I had to drive into Jacktown for a hamburger (best or not), I'd rather drive to Flora for a possum sammich. You can roll down your windows in Flora - Or use the electric window switch if you have wunna them fancy cars.

Louis LeFleur said...

Despite what Anon 12:32 said, kudos to the earlier person who remembered the Jitney 14 in that shopping center on the corner of Fortification and Jefferson which, if I remember correctly, was once known as English Village. The Jitney 14 was refered to as the cultural center of Jackson for many years, mostly because anybody who was anybody (e.g. Eudora Welty) shopped there. Over the years the old Jitney expanded and took over the space that used to be a night club of some sort, though that's so far back even I can't remember the name. The north end of the shopping center where Lou's now resides, previously a Basil's, was originally and for many, many years Parkins Pharmacy, where my first girlfriend in the 7th grade at Bailey was a soda jerk (a term which I hesitate to you here given the abuse it will undoubtedly get). As fate would have it, we've lived in the house that the Parkins built in NE Jackson in 1958 for almost 25 year now.

Thus endeth the 1st lesson.

I requested it medium well. It came back rare. And correct, there was nothing of value in my truck. I never carry anything of value into the ghetto, for that very reason.

Anonymous said...

Left J.A. in the third grade & moved back to the burbs in the 10th grade. What was Jackson is gone, done, and isn't coming back.
I accepted that a long time ago. When will you? If it weren't foreign investors, Govt. offices, car lots, lawyers, and college campuses there would be nothing. There isn't any "culture" there that you can't find in the burbs now.
It's literally coming apart at the seems save for one sliver of town where "the wealthy" live. If my neighbor wants to eat a possum sandwich, then fu*k it.

If shit hits the fan, his possum eating self can show me a thing or two rather than steal what I've got. That, dear hearts, is the difference.

Anonymous said...

Most stores people wouldn't know, but Jitney 14 was known by that name even after it closed.

I worked for Jitney and knew most of the stores by number (Jitney Premier on OCR was #50, the big Sack N Save at Ellis was #2...kinda appropriate now), but the one everyone in town knew was Jitney 14.

@12:32...so lay off Flora. You can get one of the best burgers, award winning at that, right here at the Blue Rooster. The Flamethrower is a sight to behold! We used to have the best Chicken Bacon Ranch pizza and and a lunch buffet that was known for red beans & rice Wednesday - God Rest Your Soul, Dave - Pizza Place was a institution. Oh, and the popcorn shrimp po'boy at Penn's or some killer white queso and the chile rehenos at Los Moheques. Add in organic and hydroponic veggie farming, plus an up and coming Norwegian Milk Goat farm...top it off with a shake or swirl from Bumpers. And this meal tour is after a visit to the legendary Petrified Forest - a national landmark.

We may be little, but we have some serious pride in what we have - which includes not having city wide HOA nazis.

Flora - Diamond In The Rough said...

I remember the pizza place on the Flora main drag. I think it lasted all of six months. The old restaurant on that corner by the depot had a really decent breakfast. How many sides come with the Penn's Popcorn Skrimps? I like those little plastic thimbles of tartar sauce. The place that was in Flora on 49 that made real good burgers closed two years ago. Bubba's? You can also get Viennas in Flora at Dollar Gentral. And the hardware store out on the highway has a Tom's jar full of Nabs.

Anonymous said...

You can also leave your car unlocked in flora without fear of it getting stolen, and don't have to worry about your home getting broken into in the middle of the night. NOONE in Jackson can say that. Enjoy your ghetto, and please stay there.

Anybody from a giant metropolis like say...Shreveport, would laugh their ass off reading all of this NE Jackson vs Flora vs regular Jackson vs Ridgeland silliness. It's Mississippi folks. Other than the coast it's a giant wasteland. The WHOLE thing. Comparing yourself to neighborhoods one mile away is laughable.

Anonymous said...

Late in the game her, but an observation or two. I've eaten there and it was very nice and the prices were not outrageous or over the top. It appears to be folks trying to offer something better than average. The idea that Lou's is akin to "The Four Seasons" or "Tavern on the Green" or some other eating establishment for millionaires is preposterous. It's a nice place to go, and if something about it does not appeal to you, don't go there. It is hardly the focus of a class struggle battlefield.

If you consider Mississippi's COAST to be an EXCEPTION to your description of the state as a "giant wasteland", then the joke is on YOU. The COAST is so pathetic and skuzzy, most most Mississippians avoid that scummy region. And we've been doing so, for generations.

Pops Ferry Tartar Sauce Fan said...

"Other than the coast it's a giant wasteland."

Most will probably agree with 10:46. To suggest 'the coast' is other than a wasteland is sort of nutty. Our Gulf Coast, as well as Vicksburg, was totally destroyed by the so called 'gaming industry'.

Gimme those old motor courts, Pops Ferry, Friendship House and goofy swim suits any day.

Thanks to the previous poster who identified the club in the old English Village as Big Mike's. I remember it now. Never was much of a clubber even in my younger days, but went there a few times with friends.

Some of y'all sound like a bunch of 3rd graders yelling back and forth "my dad can beat up your dad!"
Crime is a reason people and businesses are leaving jackson (and MS).
Corruption is another.
And this petty BS is also another reason.
Be constructive or just STFU. You make all of us look bad to outsiders.

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!!!
