First time at Jerry's. Delighted that they automatically brought guacamole, salsa, chips and sopapillas. We both got different combo plates. They brought two different sauces on the side. It was good, maybe not as good as my favorite back home. There was a revolving door...More

We had to wait in line to get into the restaurant but it was worth the wait. I had a cheese and bacon omelet. So so good. My husband had the burrito and he loved it. All the staff was very nice too. Great place.

My husband and I were making our second drive cross-country on Route 66, and we loved Jerry's Cafe so much last year, that it was an absolute must to return. This is a small cafe and definitely where the locals go. We arrived Saturday around...More

My colleague and I decided to try the place. Food was above average and service great. Incessant panhandling by the natives and their wares was a major turn off.

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
