Interestingly most the reviews are talking about the burgers. The burgers and chips were very good, but the beer selection and knowledge of the beers was great. The taste portions were more than generous. The staff was extremely friendly. We had a great evening, especially writing "beer mail". You write postcards and they mail them for you. All our friends... More

Go here! Bring your friends! Come hungry! Make sure you get two orders of fries and remember that water is not free here (the point is that you get a beer, duh). The burger with the egg on it is fantastic as are the sweet potato fries, but really you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It's all... More

Came highly recommended by locals and we were not disappointed. Really nice burger in a lively atmosphere. You're really eating in a bit of a cramped bar but the burgers are tasty and the portions are generous. Nice selection of beers. We also found the waiters to be friendly too.

JL Beers has the best burgers in Fargo-Moorhead. Excellent burgers. But don't forget about the homemade chips. Those are wonderful, too, and make for a great eating experience.

It's good to try and get there early during the lunch rush! We had to wait like ten minutes for a seat. The burgers are fantastic and filling! I loved the different selection of draft beers and side orders. The only downfall is the place is a little tight, but that's what gives it the unique atmospher! Will definitely be... More

We love JL Beers, for a quick get together - then go to an event, type of place. JL has very good service, fast cooking and one of the best selections of draft beer around. Also one of the few places that serves Wild Blue, a Blueberry Beer that my wife loves. the burgers are awesome, I wish they had... More

fantastic selection of beers and great burgers. The plain burger is a very good value and tasty. JL Beers always has a wide selection of draft beers. The staff really knows their stuff and is always ready to make a suggestion. Lots of TVs for when the game is on. It is a small place which makes it feel like... More

This is a great place to go for a burger. They have many interesting beers on tap. Keep in mind that children are only allowed before 4 pm and they only have bottled water. Not a lot of seating and it might be hard to get a table when the outside seating area is closed.

This is a place where you can get a pretty darn good burger for $6 bucks or less even. Plus they are not the huge ones the too many restaurants serve. These are the perfect size. Loved the seasoned and the plain fries. Very good and fast service. Lots of beer on tap as well. Good spot.

Went here for dinner around 7pm, it was still rather busy so we just ate at the bar which is totally fine with me. Lots of interesting beers on tap, bartenders were knowledgeable about the selection. Burgers were cheap, remember that you need to add on an order of fries or chips.
