Burgers and beers

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

We eat here quite often both out for a quick dinner and for work lunches. Food is fast, fresh, and good quality. Beers galore so you'll find your favorite. Humpty Dumpty with bacon is my go to. Fresh chips are great.

JL beers is one of top restaurants/bars in Fargo. I ordered one of the best bacon burgers I've ever had. The toasted butter on the buns really complimented the burger. I also ordered a beer with my friend, we split a growler of a specialty beer for $15. The growler filled about 6 glasses of beer. The building is unique,... More

This is a great place to eat and have a beer. Everything is made right in front of you - fresh cut chips. The burgers are fantastic. The staff is friendly and also very helpful when needing a beer suggestion. I love to go there!

Just across the street from a hotel we stay in a few times a year, we've enjoyed jumping over, generally for take-out. The burgers are very good and the space is small but well-adapted for their needs. Great little burger place.

We were in town again and made a point to drop in for a burger and a beer. If you can decide which beer to have - it will be great. When you select a burger - it will be the best burger you have eaten in some time - fresh, hot, tasty, delicious, made right in front of you... More
