When my daughter and I were on a spring break road trip in the Southwest, we stumbled upon Jerry's Cafe. If you are anywhere in the vicinity, go! I never had flat enchiladas before...loved them, and have been craving them ever since! We were enchanted...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.

Based on Trip Advisor, my daughter and I tried Jerry's; it exceeded our expectations. Parking is on the street and there was plenty available at 6:30 pm. The cafe was packed but we were quickly seated at the last available table (the place is small...More

This is a small, hole in the wall local diner serving primarily Mexican cooking. It is fabulous! They were very busy ( no surprise there), but the service was friendly and relatively quick. I would definitely recommend that you try it.

Well Jerry's cafe sure has the ratings and the people rating it to push him to the top in Gallup. Maybe it just is the best in Gallup? I'm not sure I haven't tested enough places in Gallup to give that opinion with any solidarity....More

It was very busy on a Friday night, so service being slow may be excusable. But little kids and adults hawking cheap jewelry every five minutes like Tijuana was a major turn off. And little babies and young kids screaming and the parents doing nothing...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
