Burgers, Beer n' Fries

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... read more

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

I always come here for my dark beer fix as they never disappoint. Was introduced to this place about 3 years ago. Not only do they have a great beer selection but you can also get a pretty good burger to go along with. Downtown location is the one I go to every time. Staff is friendly and knowledgeable about...

Simple order a burger it's freshly made and comes with homemade Chips. Beer? Where to begin. They are all good no matter the choice. Try a few a return trip

Was our last dinner in NoDak and it did the job. The burgers and chips were delicious and the beer selection was fantastic. Wasn't sure what to expect since it was a Sunday night before a holiday, but it was fine. The staff was very friendly and the service was excellent.

Every time we stay at the Radisson we end up here! Love the burgers and we get the fries and chips-love them both. Everything is made fresh right in front of you! I ususally split my burger-so I can enjoy the other stuff. I am not a huge beer person but did have a great cider beer there I would... More
