This was a great place to stop for lunch. We both had the Sopapillas-stuffed with ground meat, cheese and guacamole. Re fried beans on the side with a mixture of green and red chili sauce. Fresh ice tea to complete the meal. They also offer...More

We both had the stuffed pork sopapillas; a local classic all by themselves. The pork is flavorful and the green chili is even tastier. The cafe is very small but worth the wait which is why the locals always eat here. Jerry's is a must...More

My daughter and I stopped here for lunch on a cross country road trip. We had enchiladas and they were excellent! It was our first time having sopapillas and they were wonderful!

My wife and I love the southwest and we come to Gallup to celebrate native culture and browse the amazing array of native jewelry and artifacts. We also love good Mexican cooking and, of course, authentic Mexican food. My wife is Mexican-American and she knows...More

We stopped by 15 minutes before close, everyone was friendly, the food exceeded our expectations! We ordered the vegetarian red chile enchiladas, and the kitchen split the meal for us and provided extra salad/avocado.

Stopped at this down hometown diner in Gallup on our way to Santa Fe. Clearly it was a popular breakfast joint, so the people watching was great. The food was ok - I guess the reviews describing authentic New Mexico cuisine piqued my interest and...More

With New Mexican style. Menu has Mexican staples as well as American food. Rice and beans awesome. Salsas also fabulous and flavorful. Chile rellenos very cheesy and delicious. Sopapillas with honey among best I ever had. We even took extra ones to go. Very crowded...More

Jerry's was highly recommended and did not disappoint. Friendly staff and great food. We had the Mexican dishes, Migel's plate and # 2. We were very satisfied.

Asked the hotel for a recommendation for good food for dinner. Without hesitation she told us to go to Jerry's. It was great advice! We ordered the Miguel's Drlight & the Steak and Enchiladas. Both were fabulous. The only downside to the meal is that...More

This is the place for the real deal in SW food. Jerry's is small and fast paced, but you'll get served fast. The line was out the door and we put our name in and the wait was less than 20 mins. Enjoy your wait...More

I'm weighing in late on answering this question - but since all their salsas, sauces are made fresh it seems unlikely they would be able to ship anything.

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
