If you're traveling anywhere near Jerry's Cafe, you must stop and eat here. The food is so good, the staff is very friendly and the prices are reasonable. What more could you ask for??

A hole-in-the-wall joint, with limited seating, but the food was good; both the red and green salsas were very good...and the sopapias (not sure of the spelling) served warm, with honey were a great dessert. Good place to eat...we'd do it again the next time...More

We got burned by 'authenic' Mexican food earlier in our trip so I was not interested in throwing more money away. After reading the reviews for Jerry's Cafe we decided to give it a shot. Good call. The chili relleno were amazing. Everything was hot,...More

Jerry's is consistently delicious, the service is almost always great, and they have four vegetarian dinner options. I can only speak to the vegetarian flat enchiladas, served with tomato, avocado, lettuce and a sopapilla on the side. I really love this dish, and would recommend...More

Jerry's is the place to go for authentic New Mexico food. They have the best Green chili AND you can buy it separately to take some home.

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.

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
