We were walking around the historic Phillips district on a Tuesday and decided to stop in here on a whim to eat lunch. It was great!!!! Very fun -- you fill out a 'wish you were here' post card to send to anyone, so be prepared and bring addresses! Their burgers were out of this world!!! Beer was good--waiters friendly.... More

Upon recommendation by our hotel clerk we took a $45 round trip cab to JL Beers. Burger joint and micro brew. Waiter was not real helpful. Asked questions about micro brews, he told me all available brews were on the menu card. Many of the brews were tapped out and not available. The burger was average, nothing special. Fries were...

I have to be honest we ate here after finding it difficult to find many other restaurants open on a Sunday evening. The place was really crowded, and quite noisy, but we were able to find a table for two. Tables are pretty close together but service was quick. A little disappointed they only serve beer, and dispite the wide... More

Delicious food and beer with plenty of options to choose from. Great location and service was wonderful. They are known for their burgers so be sure to try one, you won't regret it!

Ate here twice while passing through Sioux Falls to and from the Black Hills area. The first night we were there was a Sunday and the staff was extremely friendly and talkative. Enjoyed the burgers and like how you can sample a beer before ordering it. The burgers were juicy and loved the different toppings. I had the Gyro Burger... More

These burgers and the place itself is an experience. Service was good. Had to wait 30 minutes for a table, which seemed strange for a week night, but the place is popular. We ordered fries with the burgers and they were a little skimpy on the number of fries. For drinks, have the rootbeer if you don't want an adult... More

Wish we had this chain in Oklahoma. The burgers are good, but the homemade chips are the reason to go.

We were there on a Friday night, had burgers, the beer sampler, and the big brown jug of beer. All were good! The place has a great atmosphere, is very popular, had 3 big screen tv's for sports, and also do a fun thing called "Beer Mail". They give you a post card to send to anyone you want, and... More

We had heard of lots of hype about this place. Got there to find a very basic burger menu. The burgers were ok, but then again pretty hard to screw up a burger. Nice selection of beer though. May go back again if every other burger joint in town is closed
