We each had a burger with the fries. The burgers were done to perfection and the fries are fresh too. The menu offers... More

It had excellent service for a good afternoon lunch. Very little waiting for the meal. Waiter offered good suggestions to try for a burger and a beer. JL Beers has a nice environment and it does have 2 locations in Fargo that offer the same type of servie.

Quick friendly/quirky service with great food. Best part is they have postcards for you to fill out that they will mail to anywhere. I sent one to myself as a souvenir.

The service is always fantastic and the beer selection outstanding. They make the best burgers anywhere. Even their veggie burger is the best I've had anywhere and good enough to add to a real burger for extra flavor. There should be a JL Beers in every neighborhood.

For the best burgers in town, go nowhere else but here. Always freshly made, and a huge variety of toppings and options, you are sure to be able to put together the perfect dining experience. I've been here many times, over a dozen, and its very consistent in its food quality. The fresh cut fries are also incredible, worth the... More

And local brews make this a regular favorite! Seating is limited but if you want a good burger and a beer on a lazy weekend afternoon, this is the place!

Tiny restaurant with beef focused menu. Chain throughout North Dakota at least. Popular for craft beers. Good location downtown. Broadening menu beyond carnivores would help attract new patrons. Add a side salad and some apps, please.
