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.

We recently vacationed in Pensacola Beach and just like the last time we visited, we had to dine at Jerry's! Jerry's is a local gem, a locals hangout and a really just a throwback to the diners of old. There was a wait when we arrived, but if there isn't a line out the door wherever you go, you should...

This place might be a landmark but the food is some of the worst you can eat in Pensacola. This place used to be known for their cheeseburgers. They were thick, fresh and tasty. Not anymore. They are now thin, frozen, store-bought patties, and served on a tiny store-brand bun. Bubba burgers are god awful but even they are better... More

What a menu! This place has been here for years and has always been a favorite for locals. They offer so many choices that everyone should be satisfied. Their plate lunches are good home cooking. The prices are extremely reasonable. The busy staff is always friendly and efficient. We eat here every time we are in Pensacola and walk away... More

Jerry's is one of those places that I occasionally crave going to, although I admit that it may be more for the atmosphere and the fries and special sauce than anything else. It's a Pensacola landmark, and my parents went there in their younger days, and I've grown to love it throughout my own life. All of the various pennants,... More

Great good at a great price. What ever you do get the pickles and Jerry's sauce, it is the best. I usually buy a jar of sauce to take home. Great local , family owned business.
