Restaurant Review: Jerry’s Galaxy Cafe

Miriam Bowers Abbott Miriam Bowers Abbott Restaurant Review: Jerry’s Galaxy Cafe

The warning that Jerry’s Galaxy Cafe is out in the untraveled frontiers of Hilliard, that was an understatement. In the age of Google Maps, far-flung-ed-ness shouldn’t be a problem, but those maps can’t help you when the turn-off sign on Scioto Darby Road is bent all to hell and points in some random direction.
