good food visit back in time

this is Pensacola's oldest restaurant in the same location. It is truly a visit back in time the food is very good. Grouper sandwich is the best in town.. the downside is that it is a cash only joint.

Remember high school cafeteria fast food and side dishes? Yeah, these guys serve the same "quality" stuff, but now you get to enjoy it at ridiculous prices! If you're still feeling nostalgic, at least you get to pay ONLY in cash, which I'm told "adds to the old-fashioned experience." Sure. Very average food, slow service, too expensive, and you have...

Always the very best Cheeseburger in the world. The afternoon I got home from Vietnam in March 1970, my brother drove me over to say "Hi" to Bill and Ray and have 1-2 cheeseburgers and a cold draft beer... I was home as far as I was concerned.

I have been coming to Pensacola Beach for 25 years and have frequently stopped at Jerry's Drive In to grab a burger and shake and had fond memories of my visits. NO MORE after today's visit. I had the fried shrimp dinner and it was the worst shrimp I have ever eaten anywhere. I am not even sure it was... More

Jerry's has been around for years and who's who of Pensacola go there for a great burger. There are lots of other items on the menu too! Fun nostalgic place to eat. ….and Jerry's "sauce" is awesome. It's busy at noon!

Food was good. I could not believe that a bowl of bean soup that is $0.10 at McGuire's is $4.75 at Jerry's. Worst service I have ever had. One of our party ordered okra and it was put on the wrong plate. The server actually took the plate that had the okra on it to the back and took it... More

Just tried the gumbo and it was excellent. Jerry's is a local restaurant that continues to provide a predictable, consistent casual dining option. The place has a neighborly character and is populated by loyal customers who have been frequenting the establishment for decades. It is a family favorite. Good service and reasonable prices.

The first thing to know about this restaurant is that it is not really a drive in by regular standards. But you do drive there. The atmosphere is down home. They have a great selection of comfort food with even some local craft beers on tap. On the counter they even have their cut cakes on display in clear holders.... More

This place just as authentic as it gets. Everything is made the same way it was 50 years ago and I love it. They have really good meatloaf and mashed potatoes. They really know how to cook good old southern comfort food. This place is loved by locals and newcomers alike.
