This is the place where the locals go and no wonder, because their food is inexpensive, tasty and it has a lot of local color. One of the unique things about Gallup is that you can purchase jewelry while you're having lunch as the local...More

It was packed, there were locals and tourists . The smells from the kitchen were great. The four of us ordered different dishes but we all had tamales. Most tamales are mostly cornmeal with barely meat, these were just the opposite. We lived the flavor...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
