Cute little cafe in downtown Gallup loaded with locals. Had the chile rellenos which were quite good and reasonably priced.

My husband and I were on a driving trip and used Trip Ad . Jerry's had mostly all fab reviews. We tried it on a Tuesday around 5:30. It was not crowded at this time but it can be very crowded and have a long line. So, we were lucky. The food was very good!!! Nice people, fast and very... More

We were ready for breakfast as we drove 40 West by Gallup. Trip Advisor showed Jerry's as a very good place to eat, and we would have never found the excellent restaurant with assistance. It was very busy with the line running out the door. A lady came out and said it will be about 10 minutes! We joined the... More

Our front desk clerk recommended this place as a hole-in-the wall, and it did not disappoint! The food was great - the sopapilla was the first we had on our trip and we are now addicts!

What a treat! Jerry's is every bit a cafe. Small and very basic but the food and service are both great. Friendly people and large helpings. Great green chiles and sopapillas that are light as a feather. Totally worth the stop!

Always a favorite when traveling to Gallup. I usually have more than one meal at this place when I can get in. Very popular. Great authentic New Mexican Food. Prices are reasonable for area and food quality is consistently good. Favorite choices have been enchiladas, burros, chili rellanos, tamales, and stuffed sopapilla. They recently have changed their menu and have... More

We would never have found this place without a SmartPhone! Driving thru Gallup NM, I googled "best places to eat in Gallup" and Jerry's Cafe was near the top of the list. We were road weary and hungry and Jerry's 'hit the spot!' The small space was crowded with locals...usually a good sign! Our waitress was very efficient and brought... More
