We wandered into this bar/restaurant on a cold day and were rewarded for it. The staff was friendly and offered samples of any brew we wanted to try. They had a big selection to choose from, with a menu breaking them down by type to help point you in the right direction. We each had a glass of great beer,... More

JL Beers has taken the burger and beer to the next level. At light speed you can eat and drink with service from fun people... What a concept! Randy and Warren from Fargo (Old Broadway) are dropping the effectly sized JL Beers in all the right locations as the concept grows. In the burger / beer market, JL Beers has... More

Very small place to go so get there when you can and get a seat. They have so many beers and a lot of good burger varieties. Never had anything average or bad, always great!

JL Beers is a great hamburger joint. The burgers are hand made, not that pressed crap like at the big chains. They are also reasonably priced; in the mid $4 range. I highly recommend the Ragin Cagin. Your order of fries or chips is in the form of a potato until you order it. Once the order is placed, they... More

Went to Jl Beers last weekend with my wife. What an awesome place. Friendly staff, low priced burgers, low priced sides, and best of all, a ton of different beers to choose from. Try the Bourbon Barrel Quad if you go. It has a slight hint of cherry flavor, and went perfectly with a burger. All in all, good value... More

Had dinner here with friends on a recent Saturday night. Fortunate to get the last open table (they only have 3 tables). Our table of four each had three beers and a burger so our tab was not cheap yet the waitress and the bartender really want us to move on. Yes, there were people waiting,but we were consuming and...

JL Beers is located in downtown Fargo on 1st Ave North near the intersection of 1st and Broadway. This is a really small burger and beer joint with only 3 tables for eating (although you can also eat at the bar). This location appears to be part of a small chain as there are a few more locations in Morehead,... More

I have been coming to Fargo for over 24 years, ever since I was 7 years old. When we go, we always end up going to Paradiso; and when it was still around, Fuddruckers for a good burger. My wife and I drove down to Fargo for a weekend away from the bitter cold of Manitoba for a few days... More

My second JL Beers experience. I sat at the bar which is tight. Very small place which seems a trademark... I found the service was fast and efficient..Burger was a solid 8 out of ten...fresh cut fries were undercooked but edible. Pop is served by the can which is odd. Burger, fries , pop and a tip is a solid... More
