YUM!!!!

This is a wonderful burger and beer joint. The burgers are delicious, and the chips... well they make them right there and the beer cheese dip is perfect. I imagine that any seasoning on the chips would be good, but my husband and I had the cajun, and it was delicious. We had the Humpty Dumpty with... read more

JL Beers is always delicious. There keep a regular rotation of delicious beers on tap that rarely disappoints. The food is straightforward and excellent for the price. The fresh cut chips are unbelievable. I prefer to get them extra crispy with just the sea salt but there are other varieties that are great as well. I'm a huge fan of... More

Fun atmosphere, big juicy burgers and cold frothy craft beer in mugs. What more could you ask for? Seating is a bit limited but well worth the short wait to enjoy great burgers and tasty beer.

Fantastic dining experience - we loved the burgers and the beer. They offer a great variety of both. I only wish I lived closer and could frequent this place more often. We sat on the outdoor patio and enjoyed a beautiful summer evening of great food and drink.

While this is listed on some sites it is not. Their beer is brewed by a brewery out of Lincoln, NE (Emperian), but they have a wonderful selection of both local and other craft brews. The location sits 24, so it is small. They have a few tvs for watching your favorite sports. The staff was awesome!

JL Beers (my brother in law says this is his place as his initials are JL). Great burgers, fast service, and beer mail. What is more fun than beer mail? Another place you want to try if you are visiting. You won't be disappointed, don't forget to send some beer mail.

Good burgers and good atmosphere. Highly recommend. The space is small so its hard to find a spot to set. Otherwise a great place.

There are multitudes of restaurants in Fargo that serve burgers. There are a few that serve great burgers. JL stands out on the top. Every time I try one of the new places, I'm disappointed because no one makes them like JL Beers. The formula is simple: good beef, good buns, large beer selection and fair prices. I can spend...

We stopped in here on a pit stop on our way to Winnipeg for the Women's world cup. We were looking for a spot to get a good burger, have some beers and watch the games. This delivered on all 3. The food was decent, especially for the price and they have an extensive beer list with a few craft... More

I crave a JL Beer burger more then any other food. The staff is always friendly, the food is great, and they always have a decent variety of beer. What more could you want out of life?! I do admit, sometimes they don't have the best variety of beers because the good stuff is "tapped out", but the beer menu... More
