Search the Jerry’s Nugget website on the Internet and there’s this introduction to Jerry’s Famous Coffee Shop.

"When it comes to dining out nothing beats the warm-spirited atmosphere and superb food specials found at Jerry’s Famous Coffee Shop."

Well, we found the boast to be absolutely true. Jerry’s is like Butler. They beat the competition with good old fashioned hard work, coaching and consistency. Except they don’t shoot 18 percent from the floor.

Coming here is a slam dunk once you see the incredible $7.49 price that includes a half-pound burger on a huge sesame-seed bun with steak fries. The only negative is the menu doesn’t include Mountain Dew or Orange Soda.

But, you can’t have everything.

I’ve hit Jerry’s Famous through the years, but can’t ever remember a burger this large and steak fries so large. You can even go higher with the Pounder, a one-pound burger for under $10.

The menu is seven full pages containing over 140 entrees, 56 desserts and 68 beverage selections. Make it 70 and they will get a perfect score.
