I've been going to Jerry's for more years than I can remember! Great variety and you'll never be disappointed in your meal. Twice-baked potatoes are the best I've ever had!! Fried chicken tastes just like grandma's and the pies are even BETTER than grandma's!!

First off Jerry is my brother-in-law but even if he wasn't I would highly recommend this cafeteria to anyone who loves fried chicken. The desserts are made in house and some of them are made from my grandma's recipes and are still delicious. The prices...More
