Passing through Gallup on vacation and decided to stop for lunch. It was excellent and by far the best Mexican food of our trip. Cheap as well! Large portions, wonderful chili, quick service. I would eat there again without question.

We stopped here because of the reviews on TripAdvisor, and it was well worth it. We order chips and salsa to start. I tend to scoop salsa, but that was a bad idea. It was spicier than most salsas I have had, after I got...More

When traveling through Gallup, this would be a "Must Stop". We were pleased with the food quality and service. It was really great! The BK Burrito and sauce were wonderful and so were the servers! I would CERTAINLY go back!

We had been told by a number of dealers that we had to try this spot for lunch. It is highly rated, and the locals love the place. The food is good--very filling--and the portions are huge! Actually, this is a real "diet buster" place!...More

Small busy restaurant that features basic Mexican dishes but with a little influence of Navajo. Couldn't quite put my finger on it, but the stuffed sopapilla, chile relleno and cheese enchilada seemed a little heaver than standard Mexican fare. All tasted great to which the...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
