Best burgers ever! Chips awesome! Always great flight of beers! The atmosphere is always good! Don't even bother with other burger joints!

The burger we had wasn't as good has they have been the past. Kind of dry, less toppings. Beers they offer didn't seem as good of choices as in the past .

I am not a beer drinker but my family likes to come her for burgers. They are OK but they have never gotten my order right. I don't want pickles. I don't want salt on my fries, they can not do that. They buns are great! Yes, it's a bar but could they get a Keurig for us coffee drinkers?

Best burgers in Fargo Moorhead area! I told the two couples we were with about our incident at the HiHo and they couldn't believe it. We will definitely go back to JL beers again. Great service and staff.

Once you go to JL Beers once, you are totally and completely hooked! I didn't start going to this bar and restaurant until late into my senior year of college, but boy, I had more than enough Totally Slawsome burgers and 20 ounce root beers to make up for lost time! I have gone both later at night and during... More

We never go to Fargo or Grand Forks without stopping at least once at JL Beers. We love their selection of craft beers, especially because many of them are now produced quite locally. We also love the idea of a place that offers a limited menu but does that one thing really well. In this case, it's burgers and fries.... More

If you want a good burger you must go to JL Beers. Small restaurant, but gets busy on weekends! Their burgers are the best in Fargo by far. No real variety on the menu, so if you are not in the mood for a burger don't go! Large beer selection, like most places in Fargo and great downtown location!

Come to JL Beers for the beer. There are plenty to choose from. Enjoy a burger while quaffing, but don't expect anything to write home about.
