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!

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.

I've always had great burgers and chips at this place -- not matter what town it is in. Staff has always been friendly even when really busy.

Quick service, great beer selection, and friendly staff. Awesome place to get a quick meal if you are in a hurry, or hang out and drink a few different beers.

JL Beers is known for their selection of beers and great hamburgers. The food menu is simple but you can have your burger almost any way that you like. They also offer chicken sandwiches. The staff was a lot of fun and engaging. We were their with family and had a great experience. We will go back again.
