Went with the burgers I have heard great things about them. I would give the burgers about a 8 they were great. Hush puppies are good also. The order of fries is pretty small only downside. Price overall is good.

A landmark in Pensacola since 1939. The food is very good and they have added some new items like, corn nuggets, fried pickles, & catfish to their old favorites. The prices are very reasonable, but they only take cash and local checks. Would like to see a few more beers on draft. The milkshakes are old fashioned, homemade, so thick... More

Breathes there a Pensacola soul who hasn't eaten at Jerry's? Hint: don't try to find a parking place at lunch time, the place is packed. It's a little like stepping back into the '50's, and the prices are also astonishingly historic. Hamburgers and fries, a big favorite, look just like they would have in the '50s. If you want to...

Good hamburgers and milk shakes. Ok fried chicken and fish. Good fries but onion rings are right out of the freezer at Publix Grocery. It is a local hangout where you can sit at the bar or in a booth. Formerly a drive in service Resturant but no longer. Only the Varsity in Atlanta maintains this tradition.

The food is standard drive in food. Nothing great, nothing bad. What makes this place for me is their "dressing" I pour it on my burger, my fries, if it's setting still the dressing goes on it! Also the staff are all very friendly, that atmosphere is fun. Everything you want a drive in to be! It's a must do... More

Jerry's Drive In is a wonderful place to eat for small families. The quality of the food is very wonderful and the price is unbelievable cheap. Jerry's is also a little cramped. It's very small , average sized. One of the times our family went to Jerry's there was a bee that flew in and almost stung me. Jerry's is... More

Jerry's Drive In has been a favourite of ours for as long back as I can remember. Always a good spot to stop and grab a quick bite on the way back from the beach, or on a rainy Florida summer afternoon. My favourite is a bowl of chili and two grilled cheese sandwiches. Which costs less than $10.00 with... More

Jerry's gets 5 stars or 1 star. This one is another 5 stars. This is a great local eatery with locals crowding the place. Don't show up at noon and expect a table. Line is out the door. Food is typical drive-in type food but done to perfection! Lots of fried stuff cooked extremely well. I had the Wed. special... More

Every time I am in Pensacola, I have to stop into Jerry's Drive-In. You would probably drive right by the place and never think to stop but for those that do pull in, they know how good this place is. While they claim to be the home of the original bacon cheeseburger, nothing beats their fried grouper sandwich. The fish... More
