“Great local food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 1, 2010

This is the best local Navajo/Mexican food. We love to stop at local favorites that actually prepare their own food. This is the real dea. Very crowded, fast service, local down-home charm and beats chain restaurants anyday. We travel alot and like to eat at local restaurants. This is one to try.

“Awesome service and food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 17, 2010

Driving from Kansas to Arizona in March of 2010. We just love to try local places to eat. Found great reviews for Jerry's Cafe. The reviews were right. The service was fast and friendly. The food was awesome. I loved the stuffed Sopapillas. The locals must love this place as well. We got there just in time before the line was out the door and down the sidewalk and it was 2pm. We had a few visitors come to the table trying to sell their local crafts but none of them were pushy. Great place to feel some local culture. If we are ever back this way we will stop in again!!!!

“Very much enjoyed our dinner at Jerry's”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed September 28, 2009

Following good feedback from TripAdvisor, we tried Jerry's Cafe; we were not disappointed. The food and service were excellent; the only thing missing was the opportunity to pair our dinner with a cold beer. The sopaipillas were the best we had in New Mexico. A low-key local place without any frills, but offering warm service and a great meal.

“Great food, wonderful service”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 7, 2009

The green sauce on cheese enchiladas was exceptionally good. The rice and beans were a bit dry. Sopapillas were a bit thick and chewy. Would we return? Absolutely! Not only is the service fantastic, the green sauce is about the best in New Mexico. Gallup is not a place to go for a vacation, but Jerry's Cafe is worth a side trip from the interstate.
