So-so burgers, boring fires, pop, beer, and a fairly hefty tab. That's it. With so many good burger joints around town that cater to non-beer drinkers, this sub-par joint can't compete. One disappointing visit is more than enough.

Love their fresh potato fries! Husband and I both had burgers, mine was a little dry and his was great. Big variety of beer types! Very busy place. Great service!

Quaint and relish. The prices were very good for the food quality. Lots of beer options. Although there weren't many sets inside which was a draw back. we ended up enjoying the patio a lot.

Other than being too loud where you have trouble having a conversation, this is the perfect spot to have a quick lunch time meal. Great prices and staff.

If you are looking for a great burger and some delicious fresh cut chips with a variety of dipping sauces then JL Beers is your place. Many beers on tap and never a disappointment. Great Atmosphere!

This is my "go to" place in Fargo and I have never been disappointed. The burgers are great and the fresh cut chips with seasoning are excellent. If you are a beer aficionado, then you must try this place!

Visited with my daughter-in-law and had a great lunch. We both had cheeseburgers & their homemade fries - delicious! The root beer was a nice cold treat.

Fantastic burgers, yummy beer! I had the Midwest flight, and so wish I could go back and know what I had, as every beer was delightful. Highly recommend!

My husband and I stopped into JL beers for a burger and a beer after a long drive from Woodbury MN heading into Canada. I have to say I have never ever had a bun so soft and hamburger so delicious. The bun was marshmallow...More

Tried JL Beers for the burgers and thought they were very good. Tried the Rushmore, JL and the Captain. The best one was the JL and it came with 2 patties which helped out as the burgers are somewhat small. Tried the garlic parmesan fries...More

The last time I was there they refused to serve me as I was "clearly intoxicated" yet the glass of water they served me was decidedly gluten free. Tip, when in doubt get the water.
