Great place for a quick burger. It takes less than 5 minutes to get your food, so for lunch this place is awesome. Seating is very limited. I suggest an order of chips with your burger also. Pop is sold in can, water is by the bottle only.

Excellent burgers, great beer choice, handmade chips. Named after local legend bar owner, Jim Lauerman. There are now several outlets in the area, contributing to a growing dining culture in town.

This is a great little space in downtown Fargo with a very friendly staff. Each year in our trip to Fargo from Florida, JL downtown is ALWAYS a must. We enjoy the small menu of burgers and beer and they make the perfect hamburger along with their fresh chips. You can sit and watch them cut your chips from fresh... More

The place is small and busy. The wait staff are friendly and knowledgable. They have both local and national craft brews.

This particular JL Beers is a little on the small side. We got here about 1/2 before close, fun little place to people watch. My husband enjoyed all the beer he had.

I have mostly drank root beer here so I guess I'm missing out. But I loved going there sober as I was. The burgers are great and so are the fries. This is a fun place to hang out. The service has always been outstanding,the servers also really know their menu and service is friendly,prompt,never rude.

The burgers are the best in town. Also, the beer selection complements the menu choices very nicely.
