Since 1961, the cooks at Jerry’s Restaurant have been dishing out a menu of homestyle fare, serving country-fried meats and high-stacked burgers and sandwiches alongside 15 homemade vegetable dishes. Fingers bench-press appetizers such as the potato skins stuffed with cheddar cheese and bacon ($6.19) into mouths, or flit from saucy buffalo chicken strips to mozzarella sticks to onion rings in the combo platter ($6.99). Diners can fill bellies with hearty entrees such as the lightly breaded country-fried steak smothered in country gravy ($6.59) or the hawaiian-style ham steaks donning pineapple rings and a care-free grass skirt ($6.59). Taste buds high-five as the Texas cheeseburger barrels onto tables wielding an onion-ring lasso alongside a posse of cheddar cheese, bacon, and barbecue sauce ($4.89).
Jerry's Restaurant opened in 1961, and since then it's served family-style meals, which incorporate some of the 15+ vegetables the kitchen uses. The team cooks breakfast, lunch, dinner, and whatever meal humans think up next. Their food ranges from cheesy spaghetti and lemon-pepper chicken entrees to potato skin and onion ring entrees. Jerry's serves the popular J-Boy sandwich—a double-decker cheeseburger with a special sauce—and even a hot fudge cake.
