Bob, Unless I'm mistaken, Jerry's didn't open until after mid-1964, which is when I moved to Tennessee. I ate there several times when I'd be home visiting the folks. In their latter years, Jerry's served a pretty decent breakfast, but when it came to their basic sandwiches, I always liked Frisch's better.
The following information is from 1964. It was in the Looking Back feature in the September 3, 2014, edition of The Republic. Plans to build a Jerry’s drive-in restaurant at National Road (US31) and 17th Street and a Best-Way Truck terminal on Carr Hill Road near Interstate 65 were some of the commercial developments before the Columbus Plan Commission.
