Jerry's is the place to go for authentic New Mexico food. They have the best Green chili AND you can buy it separately to take some home.

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!

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

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
