My wife and I are driving on I-40 west to Flagstaff and needed a place for lunch. Jerry's was recommended as a place the locals love. We decided to give it a try and I am so glad we did. This place seats only 60 in a tiny space and it was packed. We got there about 1:30pm and had... More

true Gallup- food is delicious, service is fast, nothing fancy nor in the menu nor in the decor, native people are welcome to walk through and present their arts and crafts,

Ate lunch today with colleagues. Good variety on the menu. Most meals come with rice, beans, and your choice of red or green chili sauce. I had crispy chicken taco and chicken enchilada combo. It was traditional Mexican and very tasty. Service was very good.

My family stopped at Jerry's on the way through town due to the high ratings on trip advisor and the fact that many people said it was authentic Mexican. My husband really enjoyed his Miguel's delight which had an enchilada, taco and chile relleno. My boys on the other hand had an odd version of a burrito, one was with... More

We visited Jerry's because of the good reviews on trip advisor. We had a very nice meal of beef burrito. There were a lot of local people in the restaurant enjoying a nice meal. It was a bit unusual that the restaurant allowed local jewelry sellers to offer their wares while we were dining. The vendors were polite and not... More

After reading all the rave reviews, I was pumped to try this place. Ordered the chile rellenos, which weren't filled at all. They were strips of chile fried in batter then covered in yellow cheese and sauce. The refried beans had a crust on them, and the rice wasn't fluffy, as if it had been sitting for awhile. Didn't eat... More
