Jerry's is the best morning diner. Staff is friendly and patient with kids. Love the eggs over medium, grits are Southern Style and delicious. (If you're visiting the south, remember grits get butter and salt). Get there early because it gets packed quick. Coffee and food is good and a nice price.

Been there as long as I can remember, original Jerry's Drive In there since 1939. Pretty reasonable burgers and sandwiches. Also has seafood and dinners (country fried steak, etc.) Mashed potatoes are instant. The house salad dressing on the table is really good, a cross between a thousand island and French. Place full of regulars, not a tourist place unless... More

Jerry's is a local favorite that must be experienced! It's the place to get a double bacon cheeseburger, fresh onion rings and a chocolate shake in Pensacola. There is a wait around noontime for lunch and then again right at 5-6pm. Come early or later. The ONLY negative is that Jerry's has very limited options for groups larger than 4... More

Another iconic eatery in Pensacola. Can't get mullet in New Orleans, so I head to Jerry's as soon as I hit town!

This place is always full around lunch. But if you have to wait it is worth it. Mostly full of locals who are regulars. My favorite place to get fried mullet. It is cash only so be prepared.

This place was highly recommended by my hotel. I really wished I hadn't taken them up on the recommendation. The burger was tiny! Onion rings were ok, but order consisted of only a few. BIG, quite unpleasant surprise at the end .... no credit cards! Only cash is accepted. Save yourself the hassle....go some place else!

We went on a Friday night. Had to wait on a table, the place was packed. Service was good, food was great. Very noisy. Tried it once, probably wouldn't go back.

Have been eating at Jerry's for years, but the last 3 times I have been there was awful...went there Saturday for breakfast and food was ordered and it took forever for us to get food, food came and it was cold and the bacon was so thin that when you picked it up it crumbled like an ash...we waited again...

Interesting local burger joint to visit; it's almost like going back in time. Overall everything was pretty typical burger fare and it hit the spot. Keep in mind they only take cash.
