Excellent staff willing to help you choose/sample from one of the best cold beer selections in Forks. I prefer the fresh cut chips over the fries however both are excellent. The Humpty Dumpty has been my favorite burger thus far. Food comes piping hot in a matter of minutes. Do to a limited menu & wine selection I have not... More

JL Beers is rather small so Friday and Saturday can get busy but they have great burgers and home made fries and chips. The craft beer selection is really good with rotating taps and occasional tap takeovers by breweries.

Stopped in for a beer before a wedding we tried the fries they were pretty good. It was nice to have a beer and try different types of beers. The food is dirt cheap and the fries were fresh cut. Cannot wait to go again.

My husband and I enjoy stopping at JL Beers for the variety of beer on tap and the great burgers! The burgers and fries are served hot and the beer icy cold! Friendly and helpful staff! This is a small place and you may have to wait for a table but it's worth it.

I have been going to this place since it opened, and have always found the food (burgers) to be top notch, and the beer cold.. The service is always friendly, and helpful. Great place for lunch, with consistantly good food. When ever I am in Grand Forks, this is one of the first p[laces that comes to mind for lunch!... More

We have a weekly dinner group and would love to go to JL Beers but they just don't have the seating for a large group of people. They do have some of the best burgers anywhere in the world though! An incredible selection of tap beer and great service. I understand the concept but they are losing out b/c the... More

JL Beers has fantastic burgers, and a great tap beer selection. What can you complain about when a $10 bill still gets you an excellent burger and a tasty high quality craft beer? Locations in GF's, Fargo, Moorhead, and I think now in Bismarck... if you've never been, it is worth a stop.

No-frills place to have a few beers and a burger. They all taste different and the way they have to - great! You can sit at the bar and watch what is going on while having some beers. For us as European tourists it was the perfect North Dakota experience!

While I'm not a beer drinker, my husband thoroughly enjoyed the World Traveler flight of beers and the waiters will bring you a healthy sized sample of any beer on tap so he ended up trying at least 8 beers in one night. The burgers are nothing fancy but extremely satisfying and tasty. We got the in house made chips... More

Maybe I'm just peeved that a bottle of water was two dollars with a burger. Four of us went out for my friends birthday... it was lunchtime. The two girls we were with got WAY more fries with their burgers than us guys did. The place is pretty small. I can't comment on their bar scene as we were there... More
