Two things. Burgers (with side of fries/chips) and beer. If you want anything else, this is not the place. There is no gluten-free and not much for green leafy vegetables. The two things they have though are well done. Lots of different burger choices and impressive beer selection. Different spices on the fries, I had Cajun and loved it. Good... More

This is a favorite spot for my friends and I! They have the best burgers! These are small places, hold 50 people or so. They make the food right in front of you so you know it's fresh. My favorite is the Humpty Dumpty- with the egg! The burgers are inexpensive, so you have more money for the beer! The... More

Interestingly most the reviews are talking about the burgers. The burgers and chips were very good, but the beer selection and knowledge of the beers was great. The taste portions were more than generous. The staff was extremely friendly. We had a great evening, especially writing "beer mail". You write postcards and they mail them for you. All our friends... More

Go here! Bring your friends! Come hungry! Make sure you get two orders of fries and remember that water is not free here (the point is that you get a beer, duh). The burger with the egg on it is fantastic as are the sweet potato fries, but really you can't go wrong with anything on the menu. It's all... More

Came highly recommended by locals and we were not disappointed. Really nice burger in a lively atmosphere. You're really eating in a bit of a cramped bar but the burgers are tasty and the portions are generous. Nice selection of beers. We also found the waiters to be friendly too.

JL Beers has the best burgers in Fargo-Moorhead. Excellent burgers. But don't forget about the homemade chips. Those are wonderful, too, and make for a great eating experience.

It's good to try and get there early during the lunch rush! We had to wait like ten minutes for a seat. The burgers are fantastic and filling! I loved the different selection of draft beers and side orders. The only downfall is the place is a little tight, but that's what gives it the unique atmospher! Will definitely be... More

We love JL Beers, for a quick get together - then go to an event, type of place. JL has very good service, fast cooking and one of the best selections of draft beer around. Also one of the few places that serves Wild Blue, a Blueberry Beer that my wife loves. the burgers are awesome, I wish they had... More

fantastic selection of beers and great burgers. The plain burger is a very good value and tasty. JL Beers always has a wide selection of draft beers. The staff really knows their stuff and is always ready to make a suggestion. Lots of TVs for when the game is on. It is a small place which makes it feel like... More

This is a great place to go for a burger. They have many interesting beers on tap. Keep in mind that children are only allowed before 4 pm and they only have bottled water. Not a lot of seating and it might be hard to get a table when the outside seating area is closed.
