“local flare”
Reviewed April 2, 2014

If you want a fantastic example of New Mexico cuisine, then this is your place. Meet the locals, sample their food and leave feeling quite appreciative of the experience. Flavorful chili and accompanying sopapillas made the meal. Even my picky teenager loved the chicken enchiladas! Short wait was well worth it. Our "go to" spot now when passing through Gallup!

“Hearty Mexican food and a down home atmosphere”
Reviewed March 28, 2014 via mobile

Bustling family place with friendly staff, large portions and quick service. Not for dieters though.

“Our New Fave in Gallup!”
Reviewed March 24, 2014 via mobile

Great option for no frills New Mexican food in a cozy little cafe in downtown Gallup. The veggie red enchilada sauce rates with any in Santa Fe or elsewhere. Amazing. When we went, an employee was cleaning every possible surface and condiment holder in the cafe! The tiny restroom is hilarious. We have been 30 year loyal customers at another Gallup eatery, but Jerry's became our new favorite!

“Good food, great service”
Reviewed March 15, 2014 via mobile

This restaurant was a great hole in the wall in downtown Gallup. We arrived just before closing. The food was quick and tasty; the service was great. The red chile was yummy! The owner visited with us as we were finishing our sopapillas. He was quite friendly and interacted with our tired kids.
