We were referred to Genero's but it's closed on Mondays. We went around the corner to Jerry's and we're happy we did. We ordered pork tamales, chicken enchiladas, beef tacos and a small bowl of chili. Everything was delicious and gave you the impression that...More

This is a small restaurant off the main thoroughfare. We went for breakfast and were stunned by the prices. Vegetarian omelette was $12.90. The portions were very small even for us. The food we had was tasty, but not enough of it. Vegetarians beware...we found...More

Gallup is not a culinary destination, and Jerry's is a pretty average, run on the mill Mexican food alternative. I would definitely put it in the "nothing special at all" category. No atmosphere, decent service, limited amenities, and the food is passable, but not much...More

Both of us had the Steak Burrito with a side of green chili sauce and substituted the fries for beans & rice. It was great! This is just a hole in the wall with the appearance of a dive; no ambience at all, but GREAT...More

Great green chili and good service. Vendors come to tables selling Jewerly but you can put a card out if you don't want them to. Dry local experience. Would go again.

We stopped at Jerry's passing through town for lunch. Delicious Mexican-American fare with some Native American specialities like sopaipillas (fried dough.) This is delicious food but heavy! Enchiladas with cheese, fried peppers, etc. All good!

We chose Jerry's for lunch based on TA reviews. It was a busy place with a short wait to be seated and still a line when we finished. It was definitely popular with the locals, with us being the only "tourists" there. The service and...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
