The service was good and fast, but the food was mediocre at best. The fries were hot and dripping with so much grease they were soggy. The burger flavor was ok and they were very stingy with topings (1 pickle slice). I won't be back.

The best burgers in Fargo hands down. I make a point if eating here at least once every trip to town each month. The buns are soft and fresh, the meat is seasoned well, and the fresh cut fries are ridiculously good. The best part is the Jalapeño cheese seasoning option for the fries! At night time the craft beer... More

I'm normally a "Medium Rare" guy but these flatiron burgers are off the charts. Fries are made with a potato press on-site, when ordered - and they're excellent. In addition to excellent food, these guys have an excellent beer selection. The bartenders were always friendly, fun and helpful while the manager was equally impressive. Very friendly and authentic - he... More

The food here is very good. We have eaten at 3 of the JL Beers and found them to be consistent in quality and service. The only drawback is that I am not a beer drinker and wish I could order a glass of wine.

We make sure when we visit my daughter in Moorhead we go to JL Beers. The BLT Blu burger is delicious. We also had their chips and beer cheese dip amazing. My wife also enjoys the 1919 root beer she can't get enough of it. JL Beers is the place to eat in Moorhead or Fargo.

The title says it all. This place was awesome for what it is. I'm getting ready to move here from Missouri and my girlfriend took me here for birthday lunch. Everything was perfect from the atmosphere to the food. The service was great and prompt, and the food was great. Another little fun feature that they had was beer mail.... More
