We had dinner tonight during our stop over in Gallup. It has been many years since we have had food this good. You just can't stop until it is all gone. The other amazing thing is the speed that you get your food. It is...More

Jerry’s is a mom and pop establishment with diner booths and great New Mexican food at a great price. Gallup is your last chance to get this wonderful food on a westward journey. I had chicken enchiladas smothered in green chili sauce and they were...More

Read the reviews and decided to try it. Wasn't disappointed! Staff very friendly and efficient. You will find a lot of locals here. Had the "number one", and tried the red and the green chili on the side. Was very good. Will definitely be back!

We stopped here for breakfast after finding it on Tripadvisor. It's a hole in the wall but worth the 5 minute wait (they move people in and out pretty quickly). My husband had the chili relleno breakfast and I had the one the waitress recommended...More

Love the food and staff! Will come back every trip through Gallop! Had a wonderful vegetarian meal. The sopaipilla was the perfect end to the meal!

Excellent lunch. Super friendly staff. Place is small and a bit crowded but worth it. We quickly got a table for 6 at noon on a Saturday. The stuffed sopapilla was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten for Mexican Food. Excellent Guacamole and...More

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

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
