“Great beer and burgers.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 21, 2012

If you are a beer lover, great selection. Best burgers in Fargo. Small seating areas at all locations. Often have to wait for a spot.

“The best burgers in Fargo and Moorhead”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2012

Although the restaurants are small and they only serve beer or 1919 root beer, their burgers and fries are the best! They also make their own kettle chips and serve them with several choices of sauce. The 1919 root beer is on tap and well worth trying....even with all those beers available. Not to be missed while in the area. They have a store in Fargo, Moorhead and West Fargo.

“Amazing Atmosphere, Good Food”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 14, 2012

This restaurant is really heavy on atmosphere in the cute downtown Fargo area. We happened upon this place when the other restaurant we were going to go to was closed. We were pleasantly surprised by the fun food--burgers, chips and fries, that accompanied the many beers on tap. There is also root beer on tap.

What I really like about the limited menu is that you are assured to get a great burger. But if you wanted something else, you will be sadly disappointed.

There are a few tables, but most people sit at the bar, which is really fun.

“Great Beer Selection, Awesome Burgers”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 9, 2012

Largest beer selection in town. Ask for samples to try a new beer. Order a burger with chips and dipping sauce. Everything is reasonably priced. Can't go wrong. Just get their early. Seating is very limited.

“Wow!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 19, 2011

What an awesome concept for a restaurant/bar. The burgers are old school good, and the chips are delicious, a great pairing with beer. That is, if you can ever decide which one you want---selecting one is a daunting task if you're into trying new and tasty brews.
