Lunch thread

The fried catfish and strawberry cobbler at McDade's today are excellent.  Gityasome.

Negative. Not worth my car getting broken into.

I skipped lunch and went to Downrange Sporting Goods. They are going out of business TODAY and have buy 2 get one free on ammo. I loaded up!

@12:08 - "Negative." That's exactly what you are.
I frequent 3 McDade's in Jackson, depending on proximity to home or work, and have never had a problem.
Thanks for the suggestion, KF.

Wonderful spot to grab lunch. And my car has never been into while I was eating there. Believe it or not there are some good things about Jackson.

McDade's on Northside is 100% safe.

Louis LeFleur said...

Just out of curiosity, KF, which McDade's? I'm sure they all have catfish on Fridays, but the delis are different, mostly due to different cooks. I love Belhaven, Fondren, and Maywood, but frequent the latter most often given its proximity to home.

It's a hell of a stretch to call anyplace in Jackson 100% safe but yeah I've never been robbed or anything like that at that location. Might have to ignore the occasional panhandler.

Woodland Hills Shopping Center McDade's has the best deli, by far.

Why hasn't McDade's expanded to Madison? Are they waiting on this whole new influx of crime thing to pan out first?

The Big Apple Inn's Pig Ear Sandwich is the best lunch deal in town!

@12:08 is being realistic. Ill only go with a pistol in my pocket.

Never Say Never said...

My friend, a medical doctor with MEA, had his wife's car stolen from the Mcdade's lot across from Saltine's in Fondren 3 months ago. She had used the key-fob to lock the doors, went into Saltines to meet a group of ladies for lunch and, according to police, the thief had been close by and captured the code with one of those 'reader devices'. How's that for never having problems at Jackson McDades?

Negative? Nope.

Considering the fact that there are multiple signs in that parking lot indicating that it is for that shopping center alone, are you sure that your "friends" wife's car wasn't towed?
I guess her sense of entitlement allows her to park just wherever the Hell she wants to, right?

George Lucas said...

Reader device to steal a car?? What was their lightsaber in the shop? Were those the droids he was looking for? I'm surprised that anyone in Jackson has that technology. Honestly, that has nothing to do with McDade's. Anywhere you have nice cars, you will have smart thieves. Goes with the territory of not living in a place like Karl Oliver's district.

4:06 - Without a doubt, that is not at all what happened to your friend's wife's car. Please use critical thinking and don't just believe dumb shit people say.

I have avoided Madison since the last murder that occurred there. The crime in Madison is on the rise. Poor Kingston.

How Were The Hushpuppies? said...

The theft of a car at or near Saltines has EVERYTHING to do with McDades. The thieving doods know perfectly well its a place to hang out and not be suspicious and if anybody spots a PO PO, just go in the store and look around and maybe pick up some viennas and then head back out to the parking lot area where you can steal shit.

Leave it to the liberal jerk at 4:51 to suggest it was her fault for parking in the McDade's lot.

Literally all he said was the fried catfish and strawberry cobbler were good today and "I hate Jackson" jackassery starts.

Y'all will argue about anything.

After all these years I just figured out that all of these posters on here are just a bunch of Jackson and Madison hot middle aged women that post on the internet all day while their husbands work. Who else gets into a pissing match about McDade's cobbler ?

Capt. William said...

@4:51 My wife had lunch in an eatery near there and was parked in their lot. Where do you get your jerk-off remark about my wife having a "sense of entitlement"? You are an asshole.

When she came out from having lunch, her Honda Accord was gone (sorry @4:51, I know a Mercedes would fit your stereotype better). The cop said that there must have been a professional thief with a scanner that could have read the code when she hit the lock button and used it to get in her car without setting off the alarm.

It turns out that some idiots working for a repossession company (All Star Recovery) were out scanning tags looking for cars to repossess. It just so happens that there was a car in Georgia that needed to be repo'd with the same tag # that was in their database. So Darrell and his other brother Darrell load up her car without bothering to notice that it is the wrong year model, wrong VIN#, and the wrong state tag, etc. It took them 3 weeks to discover they took the wrong car.

So my friends, as Paul Harvey would say, "that is the rest of the story".

I growed up in Jackson in the sixties and seventies when it was a great city.Lot's of shopping places, movie theaters and places to eat. Westland Plaza, Jackson Square, and many other places to shop and eat. I loved me some Woolworths and their good burgers. Sad days these are. How many y'all growed up in Jackson and remember the good times.

Jesus Humphrey Christ! All this for the man to tell you where to get a good lunch! GEDDA LIFE! If crime bothers you.. GEDDA ENHANCED CCW AND A HIGH CAP PISTOL!
And he's right. The catfish rocks! Got to try the strawberry cobbler next time!

So, Capt. William,
Your self-entitled, I'll-park-here-even-though-their-sign-says-it's-for-their-shops-only, wife parks there, goes across the street to a restaurant that has it's own parking lot, car gets towed (by a repo company that was looking in Ms for Georgia cars), I point that out, and I'm the asshole. hahahahahaha

Two To The Chest.. said...

Just something about carrying a gun to lunch at a grocery store out of fear. Can't put my finger on it. Just something. I couldn't enjoy my cobbler for trying to remember whether or not I had chambered a round. Just something. Hmmm.

Do a little research on the number of vehicles that have either been stolen or broken into within fifty yards of the front door of Fondren McDades.

"Why hasn't McDade's expanded to Madison?"

Might be because Mary has sold Madison to Kroger. And the bumper stickers say it ain't for sale.

Anonymous said...

How about a little research on how many cars have been broken into or stolen in Duling's parking lot. Or, maybe, how many women have been dragged thru the parking lot by their purse strap in the Duling parking lot vs. Woodland Hills parking lot.
Please produce a bar graph showing break-ins, stealings, draggings for each, and throw in armed robberies while you're at it.
Oh, and I guess you'll have to delineate between break-ins and stealings in the Woodland Hills Shopping Center parking lot that were done while someone was parked there to go to a show at Duling. Can't blame that on McDade's, now can we.

Can you use a scanner to grab a keyfob transmission? Yes, but it's highly hit or miss, not NEAR as easy as they show in the movies. Are the brothers in podunk Jackson MS using them to steal cars? Not a friggin' chance!

The Clean New City.. said...

Right, 5:37. And there's no gang activity in Jackson. No major drug running either. No heads being lopped off by the cartel. No children killed as a result of gang conflicts. No potholes that will swallow a car. No gangstas at city hall. No clowns on city council. No weapons that surpass the firepower of the PoPo, no existence of MS 13.....And your next claim is?

8:19, well put.

To hear one of you tell it (posting two or three times), if you park in an area designated for certain others, and your car is stolen or broken into, you had it coming.

What a stooge.

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.

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.
