Simply great!

Great simple burgers cooked on the flat top go well with the beers on tap! Fun atmosphere to catch a game, though sometimes it's a bit challenging to find a table for a large group.

Had an awesome mushroom and swiss burger here, their homeade chips are also really good! Only complaint is the place has music on so loud you cant have a conversation with anyone.

Plenty of TVs, good service, great food. Extensive beer offerings, but some of them are pricey. Be sure to ask for a sample if ordering something new to make sure you like it.

I have been to the two Fargo JL Beers locations and I have not been disappointed yet. Their selection of beer is amazing. The bartenders and staff are very knowledgeable about the different kinds of beers. If you are unsure about what to order, they offer samples so you will not get stuck with a beer that you don't like!... More

JL Beers sticks to the basics: Burgers, Beer n' Fries - and they do it well. You will not find wine or other spirits at JL - but you will find an expansive offering of all types of beer, a diverse menu of burgers and French Fries (which you pay extra for) that can be seasoned a variety of different...

There are 4 JL Beers in our area and I've been pleased at every one. Good food, prices and atmosphere. Love the homemade potato chips they make right before your eyes too.

The staff at the JL Beers West Fargo are very knowledgeable about the Brews being served. If you ask them a question on a certain beer or type of beer they always have a good answer. The variety of beer seems to fit everyone that sits down. The burgers are great, from the Classic to the Humpty Dumpty. They are... More

As I was passing thru Fargo I stopped in here for lunch, because I heard it was good. Not disappointed! A great Bar atmosphere, knowledgeable bartenders, seems like it'd be a great place to hang out in the evening too!

If you are thinking about trying this place, know this- they are known for their beer and they only have burgers, fries and chips. Nothing else. I am not kidding. No side salads, no chicken, no pizza. Nothing else. People come here because what they do have is amazing. They make their own fries- and don't forget the cajan seasoning.... More
