“Overpriced, and underdelivered”
Reviewed May 24, 2012

This deli was across the road from our hotel so, with kids along for the ride, we ate there 3 times in a 48hr period. The food is average. The prices are high. The staff are about as delightful as a United Airlines hostess (ie. they are old, grumpy, and as tired as the restaurant itself). One particular stop, at 11pm, was amusing - they were out of about 90% of the menu! Even out of cheese! In the end, we just told them to give us whatever they have left. I wish there had been other options so we could have avoided this stop again...

“We're out of this...”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

We visited Jerry's twice in one day acutally. Once for breakfast and another time in the early morning hours. I had a bacon cheeseburger, they were out of cheddar cheese. It was a lot of things they were out of , honey mustard sauce,... just a number of foods. During the early morning hours nothing had changed. But my friends and I were a little tipsy and needed food. Like everyone else said, it's nothing special.

“Good place to eat!”
Reviewed May 23, 2012

Our waiter, John, was nice and he gave us a slice of their red velvet and snickers cake for free since my husband and I got married:) It was delicious!! Huge menu, lots to choose from.

“Nothing special and high prices!”
Reviewed May 20, 2012

This place is still clinging to its 80s success because there is no good reason they should be charging the prices they are for the average to less-than-average food they are serving.

If you really want to visit this place, my suggestion is to just order a shake or something because you will be underwhelmed.
