Ate here twice in one week! The place does a great business. The hamburger and fries were delicious and served up quickly. My son had the hamburger steak and said it was very good. Had the chicken salad sandwich for lunch on another day and found it delicious as well. Service is fast and friendly. They don't take credit cards... More

I've been going to Jerry's for over 40 years. They had the best cheeseburgers then and still do. Nothing fancy, just great food and good, cold beer. You must try the "Jerry's appetizer" - the homemade, secret recipe salad dressing on saltines. Still great after all these years.

I have passed by this place many, many times and never stopped by. My husband and I met some friends there and tried it out. The gizzards were perfect! Not the best spot if you are having to stay away from fried foods or have a cholesterol problem, but if you are wanting some good southern fried food like grandma... More

The burger was dripping in grease. The little burger patty hidden under a layer of slimy sauce. Charged $2.50 for a sweet tea

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!

Thank sbiersch
