This restaurant has wonderful local Mexican/Southwestern meals. I would not recommend the tacos simply because the beef was ground, not shredded, but my husband had the chicken burrito and could not stop raving about it. We'll definitely try Jerry's again. I should mention that if...More

Found this place on a recommendation from our motel desk clerk. We like to eat local and this was fun and delicious, especially since it was the weekend of a festival and there was music and dancing in the streets. Plentiful parking and great service,...More

This is New Mexican food - spicy and yunny! Read about it in a travel book and decided to try it. The place is tiny, in a automotive repair section of Gallup - and it was hopping the entire time we were there. I ordered...More

Delicious food and friendly staff and fast service! Hubby had chicken fried steak and I had Miguel's special. Both were great. Wish they were close to where we live!

We had a wonderful lunch here. We both had combination platters and everything was wonderful. There was construction outside, so we had to walk a bit to get there, but it was worth it. Service was efficient. Salsa was great. Chips were not good, but...More

I'm weighing in late on answering this question - but since all their salsas, sauces are made fresh it seems unlikely they would be able to ship anything.

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.
What is the menu? Considering one review said it was pricey and I am a Senior Citizen. I need to know this. Thank you? Also are you open on July 4th?

Hi SJody. I don't remember that Jerry's was too expensive. Maybe around $10 a plate average? But it's been a few months and I don't remember for sure. I see that you are from Suffern. I was there for a few days before... More
