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.

The best burgers and chips any where in Fargo! We love the Beer Cheese dipping sauce with the chips. And, of course, the beer. Too bad a cup you can't get a cup of water - all drinks cost - even the WATER. Bad.

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.
