Jerry's is a very authentic local spot to grab a bite to eat. The food is typical New Mexican with tortillas, sopapillas, and red and green chiles. The décor is very simple, but the food more than makes up for the atmosphere. Jerry's is definitely a place that the locals frequent, so you know that it must be good.

We stopped here looking to eat elsewhere but most things were closed due to it being Monday. Picked the location based of TA rating.

Combination plate was great with green chili. Once my selection was made; I only had to wait 10 mins before my meal was ready. I was offered tortilla which came with butter....yummy! Staff was upbeat and knowledgeable of the menu. Ended my meal with a refill of ice tea. Thank you Jerry's for a wonderful meal

I love neon signs and Jerry's welcomes you with a great one. This cafe was packed, but we quickly got a cozy booth. We both tried Mexican dishes and were pleased with our choices. The Jerry s burrito is huge and packed with meat, smothered with cheese and tasty sauce. Entree s come with fresh Somaliland, try them with honey....yum.... More

I cannot believe this tiny place is the 2nd highest rated spot in Gallup. I mean, if it is, I would HATE to see what the rest have to offer. Not only did we feel sick after eating here, but it was tiny, sticky, sketchy and old. Ppl were decently nice. Also I loveee getting asked to buy jewelry while... More

Whenever I'm in town with family, friends, or for work I always try to eat here. When people ask me where I like to go, I happily say Jerry's! Feels like home and the food is amazing. Service is great. I was there last night and the chili was hot. love it.
