Now comes Jerry’s Galaxy Cafe on Scioto Darby Road in Hilliard, serving breakfast, lunch, and dinner featuring full-flavored Cuban, Southwestern, Creole/Cajun, and Tex-Mex specialties in large portions at bargain prices – what a combination! The cafe is somewhat difficult to find. It doesn’t have signage yet, look for the eatery’s name on the front door.
Jerry’s has the same eclectic, funky decor as his previous spots, with bright yellow walls, crazy knick-knacks, and a brick wall with fireplace. Jerry’s seats 50, and does not yet have a liquor license.
In two visits, we tried the signature grilled pizza bread salad with mixed greens, chicken, mushrooms, potatoes, and veggies, and wondefulheese with sausage, chicken, bacon, veg, and Cajun cream, served with Cuban bread….and the hand-cut sweet potato fries.
On a second visit, I had the special chicken & chorizo burrito, which even I couldn’t finish, and my buddy had the ham, mushroom, and cheddar omelet with superb roasted potatoes. The breakfasts are hearty and feature dishes such as huevos rancheros, chiliquiles, omelets, French toast, and pancakes.
The lunch and dinner menu has seven appetizers, from $4.50 to $7.50; 4 burgers, $7 to $8.50, including fries; five sandwiches, $7.50 to $9, including sides; three burritos, $8 – 9; three quesadillas, $7 – 9; and five salads, from $3.50 to $9.
The dinner menu adds six large plates, all $11 – 12, including Cajun jamabalya, Cuban roast chicken, and Yucatan marinated chicken.
Desserts vary, but include key lime pie and strawberry shortcake.
So head out to Jerry’s Galaxy Cafe for some great food…who was it that said “you won’t go hungry, you won’t go broke.”
