Good for a lunch stop. Burgers were good. Beer choice large and comprehensive. Great place to stop if you also want to spend some time roaming around the Fargo downtown. Prices reasonable. Not a glamour stop. But fits the bill.

If you are looking for a great burger and a wide assortment of craft beer on tap then JL Beers is the place for you. These are hands down the best burgers in Fargo.

The service was good and fast, but the food was mediocre at best. The fries were hot and dripping with so much grease they were soggy. The burger flavor was ok and they were very stingy with topings (1 pickle slice). I won't be back.

The best burgers in Fargo hands down. I make a point if eating here at least once every trip to town each month. The buns are soft and fresh, the meat is seasoned well, and the fresh cut fries are ridiculously good. The best part is the Jalapeño cheese seasoning option for the fries! At night time the craft beer... More

I'm normally a "Medium Rare" guy but these flatiron burgers are off the charts. Fries are made with a potato press on-site, when ordered - and they're excellent. In addition to excellent food, these guys have an excellent beer selection. The bartenders were always friendly, fun and helpful while the manager was equally impressive. Very friendly and authentic - he... More

The food here is very good. We have eaten at 3 of the JL Beers and found them to be consistent in quality and service. The only drawback is that I am not a beer drinker and wish I could order a glass of wine.
