We stayed one night in Gallup after visiting the Petrified Forest and Painted Desert. Jerry's Cafe was recommended by the front desk staff at our hotel. We were there on a weeknight and did not have to wait long for a table. The staff was...More

I had the stuffed pork sopapillas; a local classic all by themselves. The pork is flavorful and the green chili is even tastier. The cafe is very small but worth the wait which is why the locals always eat here. Jerry's is a must stop...More

I've lived in Arizona for 45 years and my husband is Mexican. We know Mexican food. We both thought this was the best Mexican food that we've ever had. Between our family of five, we had a burrito, taquitos, taco and chile relleno. OMG, it...More

Jerry's is one of the best places to eat Mexican food in Gallup. On my last visit to Gallup I went twice. I had cheese enchiladas, with extra onions, smothered with red chili and an egg, over easy on top of it all. So delicious....More

The service is fast and the food is hot and delicious. Only drawback is waiting for a table when it's busy but it's worth waiting.

Great food but the place is always so packed it is very noisy. People at another table had a little kid who kept yelling and they did nothing to shut this kid up. Very disruptive! Won't be going back for a while!

Oh my gosh! Found this place on trip advisor. Definitely off the beaten path but SO worth the drive. The tiny place was packed. Many regulars. We were greeted right away by the hostess and we waited just a few minutes. I ordered the Cherelle,...More

You can find the menu on the webpage for Jerry's Café. If I remember correctly I had Cherelle's Choice and my husband ordered Jerry's Stuffed Sopaipillas. Both dishes were excellent.

Hi SJody. I don't remember that Jerry's was too expensive. Maybe around $10 a plate average? But it's been a few months and I don't remember for sure. I see that you are from Suffern. I was there for a few days before... More
