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.
