Whatever anybody tells you about Jerry's—good, bad or eh—take it with a grain of salt. The place offers more than 100 sandwiches, so some are bound to be good, and others are going to disappoint. For example: the fried chicken on challah with hot sauce, pickles, ketchup and mayo? Good. The turkey Reuben? Eh. The apps here run bready (soft pretzels, bruschetta), which is hard for us to understand since, you know, you're about to eat a lot more bread. Our only guess is that all that starch is there to soak up all that beer—Jerry's has a big, impressive list, which tips the scales of the place from "restaurant" to "bar."

I appreciate Jerry's as a bar—their beer and whiskey selections are both terrific—but the sandwiches I've tried (admittedly a small percentage of the whopping menu) have underwhelmed: not bad, but seemingly pricey for what you get. Still, I'm willing to keep going back and trying to find a favorite on that massive list.
