We think these are the best burgers in town. The homemade chips are a treat, too, and the beer selection is excellent!

This small place ("we seat 1,000 28 people at a time") had an incredible beer selection and more ways to serve a really fresh burger I thought possible. Loved the fresh sliced fries and chips!

Stopped here for lunch because of the great rating on trip advisor. We had a couple burgers and the homemade chips and fries. While everything was good, I was not impressed. Nothing special. Be aware that they only have bottled water.

Had a delicious burger here. I wasn't interested in eating another burger for dinner but this place was highly rated. I am glad I came. Burger was delicious and server recommended the handmade chips and a peach ale that they had. Both were great. I noticed that they had other locations including one in my home state of Minnesota.

Currently residing in Canada we decided to take a trip to Fargo for a long weekend as the drive is only 7 hours. We stumbled across this cute looking bar and decided to pop in for a beer of two. It's a small place, but you can tell it's a hot spot as people are constantly trying to get in.... More

I stopped here for lunch and had the best hamburger I have ever had! The service was excellent and the selection of beers was fun to contemplate. I would definitely recommend this spot for a great meal!

Have been to three of the JL Beers in FM area several times. All about the same. Pretty good burgers and great selection of beer.They make their own chips and they are definitely worth ordering. Going out with a few friends, this is a good spot, with one problem, limited seating.They built their bars small so very limited seating. Going... More

Got a favorite beer? They have it. Want to try a new beer? Pick one. If you are a burger or brew fan, this is the place. The restaurant is small. A bar with a few tables. You can watch from any angle while they cut potatoes for your chips or fry up your burger. The beer choices are excellent.... More

This is a great place for lunch, even if you aren't partaking in one of their beers. I recommend going with a friend so that you can share shoestring fries with chips and some of their lovely dipping sauce. This place used to serve just beer, or root beer, but now you can get soda, in a can or a... More

I've been to a number of similar restaurants (50+ beers on tap) and the selection at JL Beers is right up there with the best. Their burgers are also very good, and they have a number of fun t-shirts which you can purchase as well. Highly recommended!
