“Local hangout....”
Reviewed August 21, 2014 via mobile

We had a couple options for lunch but after reading some reviews we chose Jerry's Cafe & we weren't disappointed! My husband had Jerry's Special, a high quality hamburger steak with your choice of green or red chile sauce, he loved it! I had Mexican Pizza, Navajo fry bread with meat, cheese, guacamole, lettuce & tomato again with choice of red or green chile sauce, YUM! Service was great & prices are reasonable...enjoy!

“ABSOLUTELY FANTASTIC! !!!!!!!”
Reviewed August 5, 2014 via mobile

I cannot say enough positive things about this restaurant! We were traveling through Gallup and read the glowing reviews on another site. Service was awesome and food was OUTSTANDING! As a native new Mexican myself, I highly recommend! Also, bring cash as native American artisans shop their wares in a very tasteful manner throughout your meal. This was by far the best restaurant we ate at during our 11 day adventure across the southwest!

“Good honest food and great value for money”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

We arrived in Gallup fairly late, and on recommendations we headed to Jerry's. The restaurant was full of locals, the service was quick and our meals were generously portioned (you could share). A great local eatery.

“Not Fancy, But Good Food”
Reviewed July 31, 2014

Authentic New Mexican, Mexican food. Mostly locals and a few tourists. Look around to see what the other people are eating for ideas. It's all good. Jerry's allow local native artisans to orbit the restaurant and sell their treasures. They don't push anything on you and a simple nod of the head is all that you have to do to signal your choice.
