Worth the wait for a table. I had the Miguel's delight of a chili Rellano, chicken taco and Enchilada with beans and rice. Covered with green chili sauce. So very good and filling. Service was efficient and polite. If locals go here...its good!

What’s not to like? It has it all! Good food, fast service, and all the local color! Wonderful plates of home made Mexican goodness. Heck you can even buy Navaho jewelry from people off the street! I LOVE GALLUP!!!

Traveling through toen, we decided to stop in Gallop. Fellow Trip Advisor friends did not steer us wrong. We split a large sopapilla. Just enough for a mid-day snack

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
