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.

Small mom and pop Mexican restaurant very popular with the locals. Food was good, service great. Located in the historic DT area just off Rt. 66. It was like stepping back in time. Only drawback was that local vendors went from table to table offering their goods to purchase during the whole time we were there. They moved on when... More

Jerry's appears to be a local institution, very popular with residents and visitors alike. The menu is classic New Mexican, all the standards and everything done right. I had a combination plate with a chicken enchilada and a tamale, both were good. I'm not a fan of Spanish rice but Jerry's recipe is a bit different and I enjoyed it.... More

The restaurant is like a step back in time, except that there is no smoking. The restaurant is located in the old downtown district. I selected this restaurant because of TripAdvisor. I arrived late Saturday evening and the restaurant was packed with a local clientele. Most of the menu items are Mexican cuisine. Though the food was not prepared as... More

Tripadvisor search resulted in locating this restaurant for our choice of local food.. We could get public parking for our truck and walked about 300 steps for the restaurant. Our selection of two dishes... More
