“$10 for a beer and a great burger”
Reviewed 21 August 2014

JL Beers has fantastic burgers, and a great tap beer selection. What can you complain about when a $10 bill still gets you an excellent burger and a tasty high quality craft beer? Locations in GF's, Fargo, Moorhead, and I think now in Bismarck... if you've never been, it is worth a stop.

“Beer and burger at its best!”
Reviewed 19 August 2014 via mobile

No-frills place to have a few beers and a burger.
They all taste different and the way they have to - great!
You can sit at the bar and watch what is going on while having some beers. For us as European tourists it was the perfect North Dakota experience!

“Beer and burgers”
Reviewed 6 July 2014 via mobile

While I'm not a beer drinker, my husband thoroughly enjoyed the World Traveler flight of beers and the waiters will bring you a healthy sized sample of any beer on tap so he ended up trying at least 8 beers in one night. The burgers are nothing fancy but extremely satisfying and tasty. We got the in house made chips with jalapeno cheddar salt which were fresh and quite yummy!

“It was okay...”
Reviewed 26 June 2014

Maybe I'm just peeved that a bottle of water was two dollars with a burger. Four of us went out for my friends birthday... it was lunchtime. The two girls we were with got WAY more fries with their burgers than us guys did. The place is pretty small. I can't comment on their bar scene as we were there at 1pm on a random Wednesday. The waiter was nice but I wasn't inclined to tip much after the okay-food and not-giant servings. It seemed more for show than the actual service or quality of food. Just okay for me. Sorry-JL Beers.

“Not for Everyone”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

The menu seems adequate but eveything was an add on. The noise level is not for conversation.
The bugers were OK and beer choices good, We won't be back.
