Consistently great food, service and atmosphere. They offer a large selection of classic and specialty burgers and an even bigger offering of beers. Great place to hangout after work. Highly recommend to anyone who hasn't visited. Biggest …

Brian T

Very disappointing experience. Folks that arrived well after us got their food first. When they were nearly finished eating, ours arrived cold, and one burger had a hair in it. They did the minimum and took the burger off the bill, so I …

First time I went to a JL bear and I found it quite delicious. If you like beer and burgers this is an excellent place to go. Even if you don't like those things the chicken sandwich was good and they have 1919 rootbeer too.

Awesome food and service!

If your looking for great burgers and beer, this is the place in Sioux Falls.

Great service, glorious food and never a full moment! Absolutely the best place to get a solid brew and a good meal!

Love the humpty dumpty burger with cajun chips


It was my first time there and definitely won't be my last! One of the best burgers in town. Side potato option was very tasteful and unique.

Donald Hallor

Great burgers and huge variety of beers!


Good food. Basic but fast! Good beer selection. Would return!

Kevin Gregerson

Great food.

Robert Serini

What a selection of beers! Only topped by the quality of service. If you come on a busy night, expect to wait outside the door... they can only seat 75. Definitely recommend the pretzel & beer cheese dip! Their Mt. Mushmore mushroom & swiss burger is also very good. I will be coming back!

Rick Larson

Excellent cheeseburgers and ice cold beverages

Brendan Wrobel

Wide variety of drinks. Felt like a really small saloon. Peanut butter on everything was awesome!

S&B Johnson

I always love coming here. Staff are super friendly! Free pretzels later in the evening when you order a drink.

A Foooster

A small place with great burgers and solid beer!

Jake Lahti

Always fast service awesome food!

Matthew Poulin

I was traveling for work when I was advised to try JL beers. As a burger connoisseur, I have a very high expectation of what a good burger should be. JL met all the criteria. Both nights I had excellent burgers. The JL burger the first night, the chilli popper the second night. They cook it right in front of you, in a laid back atmosphere with good music playing in the background. The food is reasonably priced, with a variety of delicious beers. For someone who typically hates blue cheese, the buffalo blu cheese fries blew my mind! If I ever go to Sioux Falls again, this will be my spot for dinner! Do yourself a favor JL, bring one of your joints to Portland Maine, you'd pack the place every night. Thanks for the grub, Cheers!


Love the small space, staff is able to be very attentive to all of your needs. The food is amazing! Burgers, homemade fries or chips with numerous flavors to spice them up, and beers for days!! Plus their own ROOTBEER-Yum!!!!

M Bruneau

Love this place! Quick service, delicious food & reasonably price

Denise Rosnow

Great Burgers, Cold Beer, Friendly and fast service. Great time!

Brenda Baker

Been in North Dakota for 11 days and this is the best place I have ate.

Halvy Halvenstein

Good tasting beef

Alesia Hoffarth Lunski

Food is always fantastic and hot. Service is friendly. Awesome beer selection.

Jack Champeau

Disappointed to find, upon arriving, that only 21+ years old were allowed entry. As an out-of-towner bringing kids for a later night dinner after travelling, this was an unexpected surprise - and something I didn't see noted when looking this business up on Google. Cannot comment on service, food, pricing, etc due to not being able to enter.

K3nrg Kaan

Great place for a quick beer and a burger. Beer selection is good and always rotating. Delicious burgers, fair prices and attentive service. Consistent with the other JL Beers I've been to.. like, exactly the same.

Bobby Hegge

Solid burgers and great beers to explore

Connor Carlbom

Great selection of beers and great sandwiches. The peanut butter is amazing, so definitely try that!


Small space but delicious food and great service

Camden Thomas

Brandi Ramey

Awesome beer selection. Exceptional Customer Service. Amazing burgers. Hands down the best peanut butter I've ever had!

Jamie Thomas

Hands down, this place has the best burgers and tap selection in Grand Forks.

Hot Toddy185

Get the loaded chips with bacon cheese and Jalapeno pieces

Van N

A unique burger for sure!

Karen Hermes

The beers were meh. Lots of imperial IPAs but not many normal IPAs. Unless you want to fall off your barstool after a few beers, it needs a bit more variety.

Brandon Fulsaas

The best chicken bacon ranch sandwich I have ever had! I will be returning again.

Jason Moeller

Amazing burgers & great beers. Everything fresh. 21 & over so not a family spot.

Sasha M Paez

I had an awesome burger...first time being there. I was so hungry, I forgot to take a picture. Loaded fries were good... i will return.

Lundean Tomlin

Delicious, and good experience. Our waiter was good and attentive. The food was out quick and well prepared

Danielle Bandstra

Try the peanut butter, it's great!

Koda Oficial

Love the burgers here and the beer cheese.

Juan Robalino

THE best burgers that my wife and I have EVER had. We love this place not just for the food and great beer selection, but because the staff is extremely friendly and knows how to treat their customers. I came here almost every weekend when I lived there and I would visit Grand Forks just to come here again. Do yourself a favor and enjoy a burger and beer here.

Tom Knotts

Burgers were awesome. Chips are made fresh and incredible. Must have. We'll be back!

Bridget Cardinal

The "Totally Slawsome Burger" is mind blowing! The beer always tastes crisp and fresh. Drink a flight if you're not sure which beer will tickle your fancy! Service is knowledgeable and friendly.

Alex Vansteenbergen

Great burgers and fries and a nice beer selection. The prices aren't bad either. Definitely worth a stop if you're looking for a good burger.

Lindsey Bobier

Burgers are somewhat basic, but they're pretty good. Fries offer a variety of seasonings and sauces, which is unique and fun.

Tehra Drost

Very friendly staff, great food and an amazing beer selection.


This is an awesome little burger spot! Great staff, excellent beer selections, and great tasting food. Burgers are a bit smaller than anticipated, but was worth my time and investment!

Niles Getz

Great food and beer for cheap.

Jen Jung

Always amazing service each time we visit.

Owen Fritz

It’s a bit of a packed space, so get there early if you have more than 2 people. The burgers are solid, but the fresh chips and fries are where is at. Pair that with a huge rotating beer list and this makes for a great spot to stop any day of the week.

Alberto Santiago Alvarez

Huge selection of beers to include a wide variety of local beers which was nice. Also would let you sample a beer you weren't sure about. Food was outstanding and the sauces at each table really made all the flavors kick. Staff was very friendly and attentive.

Jericho Kangas

Great place with an amazing selection of beers and some of the best tasting burgers, chips, fries, and pretzels in town (or any town for that matter). Combined with great service and cheap prices for food, always a good idea to stop in at JL Beers.

Mike M

The BEST burgers in Grand Forks. Great place to grab lunch!

Nick Rober

Quoted "best burger ever"


Very very good burgers and great beers

Jay Buckheimer

Every JL Beers I've ever been to has been an awesome experience!

Chris McClure

Best burgers in town and fresh chips and peanut butter that are both amazing

Dawn Bumgardner

Even in you aren't a beer lover, the atmosphere, food and staff make up for it. I blessed my life with the Not a Nutter Butter Burger (peanut butter & raspberry jelly with bacon and cheese) and my husband celebrated the day with a Rajun Cajun Burger. Also, the parm garlic fries are extra credit to your day. Add this to your bucket list.

Priscilla Amiot-Waslaski

Excellent burgers, fast service

Jacob Canty

Good variety of burgers and great beer selection.

Rindi Boie

Great burgers and atmosphere. Try their homemade peanut butter, it's amazing!

Chris Hintz

Really great burgers! Tons of options, great service. Can't miss!

TrentTara Wiskow

You can never go wrong with this place. Great fresh cut French frys and cold beer!

Bryce Bontrager

Good food quick service

Kyley Weaver

Fun, busy bar on a Saturday afternoon.

terence voigt

Very good burgers, and if you like beers this is the place! Cozy and good service prices are comparable to most sports bars. We had an enjoyable time. Parking is the only real down side, but if you dont mind walking a little, you have to try JL BEERS!

Paula Willette

Great bartenders and service! Yummy beers and food!

Nate Bertram

One of the top 2 burgers in town. Options are endless on toppings. The loaded French fries are worth the calorie gain. Try it with ghost pepper sauce I dare you.

Mike Fleming

Awesome food, great staff...faboo...

Carson Merkwan

Packed and cold drafts when sitting in front half of bar. But good beer, okay food, and nice decor. Crowd was hipster men.

Toby Bartlett

The beer is aways good the pretzels and beer cheese is too die for, and you can not beat their burgers here.

Kimberly Hobson

Good food. Good beer. Great service.

Kate Unknown

This is one of my favorite places in town for a burger. It is a bit tight inside but the food is worth it. Service has always been positive. The last time I took my parents here, since they are from out of town, they gave them post cards to send to their friends. Great experience and would recommend.

Andy Tiede

The Not A Nutter Burger was outstanding! The peanut butter complements the spicy jelly. They have a large selection of beers on tap. You're bound to find something you enjoy. I'm happy they had Accumulation from New Belgium.

Aoi Akimori

Great little place for food even if you aren't drinking. Love their burgers

Travis Weesner

I love JL Beers! Their burgers are sure to please every time and the service is top notch!

William Dittmer

I had the Mount Mushmore with Fries and a side of Ranch. It was phenomenal. It reminded me of a place I know, and for that I am grateful.

Ryan Hathaway

Great beer selection with the option to do flights of as many 5oz pours as you want. The burgers are pretty good, but nothing mind blowing.

Jason B

Trendy atmosphere, wide variety of beers on tap, and one of the best burgers I've ever had. This is a great place for a lunch or for after work.

Joe Drevlow

Extraordinary atmosphere. We enjoyed having an open area and bar seating environment yet close enough to remain personal. Great place to get pub fare food quickly and be able to enjoy with friends without too much noise. Food is fast but we'll done and tasty. And the beer selection is out of this world. 5 stars!

Mark Lee

Great food and great beer selection. The waiter who greeted us seemed to be a slight douche but you can't win them all.

Tyler Afdahl

A good choice of beer and an EXCELLENT burger no made how they dress it. My suggestion? Add an egg on top. You're worth it.

Tina Hale

Great food, beer selection was admirable and the price was good! I’ll be back.

Keely Sechser

This place has the best burgers! They also have great dips which include beer cheese and "R dip" which is kind of like a really good French onion dip. They also cook the food within sight so you can watch them make yours. Highly recommend!

Scott McVicker

Service was fantastic. The bartender was excellent. Food was secondary, to be honest, to the great service...but it was also very good.

Nate Penn

Good food. A little dark in the bar. Good wait staff.

Heather Lundy

The burgers and beer are amazingly delicious.

james steckeberg

Good food, good wait staff

Rachael Kapaun

Delicious burgers and mead. ❤

Eti Sione

Great atmosphere great service great beer selection and bomb burgers, gotta have it with an egg they truly get me

Hans Lundquist

Friendly staff and great food!


Was in town for work and told to try this place out, I'm really glad I did. Has an extreme variety of different beer to choose from to fit all tastes, and the burger was phenomenal. I highly recommend giving it a try. Be aware though, the kitchen closes an hour before the bar

Joe Beaudoin

Great service and extremely tasty burger and fries. Very unique and unlike any other burger joint. I will definitely be going back

SE7EN Adventures

Great burgers and fries/chips! A well balanced meat to bun ratio. Most places cheap out with the fall apart bun that you wonder if it’s really even bread at all, not this place! Freshly made fries/chips with amazing seasoning. Craft beers if you like that kinda thing. All this at a good price.

Mike Rost

Decent burger nothing special. Definitely feel rushed liked they have an agenda of 2 beers In/Out the door. Reasonable value.

Erin Seivert

Good burgers, nice beer selection. The french fries need an upgrade though. How bout some onion rings?

Timothy Collins

I love it. If you want to make love to a beef patty... It is a must. Humpty Dumpty... Add Bacon Please!!!

Tom Caldwell

Amazing burgers here! Very fresh tasting, the black bean burgers are great! Get the Chips and beer cheese dip! Good beer selection too!

Chris Remme

Great microbrews and great food! The Humpty Dumpty with their homemade peanut butter is my favorite. Fries and chips are made fresh from potatoes cut and sliced right in front of you. They also will can your favorite brew to go!

Alex herl

Great Jalapeno cheddar seasoned fries and a delish stout!

Vanessa Cardona

Great burgers! Chilli popper burger was delish!

Jeremy Forni

Great place for a pint, amazing burger and pub feel.

Mike Agee

Great chili poppen burger and beer! Staff are always friendly

Jason Perry

Excellent place for a burger. I love the fresh made peanut butter. It went so well with my burger. I travel the country for work, so it’s always nice to discover a refreshing place like this. Thanks!


Great beer and burgers. Awesome! Also, our server did a excellent job.

Patrick Olfert

Good craft beer on tap and really do like their burgers. I always get the bourbon beer.

Alex Lawler

Incredible burgers, plenty of beer options

D. Lawrence

Burgers were great. But you know what really grinds my gears? They won't give you a glass of water with your meal. You have to purchase a 16 oz bottle of water for an absurd price. Who does this? I can easily go through three LARGE glasses of water during a meal. I had to down my salty burger and fries with a dry mouth because I didn't want to add $10 to my bill for WATER. The food was good, but I will never go back because of this.

Craig Lee

One of the best burgers in town. Lots of craft beers plus the standard fair and 1919 root beer on tap. The staff is friendly and knowledgeable. I recommend the nutter burger.

Maud Correa

Hamburgers taste so good! Take it to go and enjoy it at home with your kiddos!

austin knoff

Beer is so unique!!

Tory Jacobsen

Loved this place until I got the worst service, a dirty pint of beer after another with an eye roll. She didn't care what the problem was so we left. Even worse was the management.

Carol Hollaway

Wonderful burgers here. The best in town!

Julie Ritter

Excellent burgers! Cold beer!

Reuben Rodriguez

Fantastic customer service, knowledgeable staff, good food. Great lunch spot

Amber Hendershot-Nordin

Super enjoy this place. Great food always & you always get a cold frosty beer w/your burger...What more do you need? Reasonably priced & friendly staff & very clean place!!! Winner winner beef dinner...

Pascale Nelson

Love the food and variety of beers! Staff was great too

Troy Weiland

Great Burger- Great chips (real ones) lively conversations and atmosphere

Cody Hansen

Amazing burger, great service

Duane Duimstra

Always a great place for a beer and a burger!

Derek Morgan

Great beer selection. I LOVE that they try and keep local beer on tap as well. They didn't have anything from Hydra or Remedy brewery but I was still able to find beer I liked. The burgers are great as well!

Kathleen Coudle-King

Great burgers, wide selection of tap beer. Get the homemade chips but skip the dips. It was clear they wanted to turn tables over and were ready to give us the check even though we were only half done with our beer. Small place, but still. People might want to order more than one, or (shocking!) two beers on a Saturday.

Kevin Haid

Great food and service. Awesome beer selection.

Laura McCullough

Great beer. Food was just ok as was told kitchen was closing soon


Good and super service..A excellent beer selection to compliment the grub..

Samuel Ausdemore

The only possible complaint about JL Beers is that of all the million amazing beers on tap, Mich Ultra isn't one of them. The Burgers and Fries were awesome, and the food came out quickly.

Juli Stephenson

Been there twice now and both times the food was awesome! Service is great, and restaurant feels clean. The ONLY downside is the poor seating for large groups.

Obiwan K-no-bee

As always, a great eat and drink. Waitress was attentive and quick. Food was great, really enjoyed the chips today! 1919 root beer on tap is the best!

Paul Siemonsma

Awesome sevive....great food and beer selection

Richy Parkin

Walked into JL Beers after wandering around the falls and downtown area, the gentleman at Duluth trading recommended coming in for the burgers Glad I listened to him, I ordered the classic burger with chips and the beer cheese dip, WOW Make sure to come in and have a frosty beverage and a bite this place is legit and inexpensiveX Burgers are $4-$6 and taste fantastic, check out the grill in my photos I would definitely come back here when in town Bottoms up

Matt Crockett

JL Beers had a really nice selection of craft beers! I did not eat there so I'm not sure how the food tasted, but it looked good while it was on its way to other tables. They were very busy when I visited (Saturday evening), but service was really slow. I will still definitely return though, because everything else was phenomenal. Definitely recommend to anyone looking for some tasty craft beers.

Rebecca Tarrell-Weidenbach

This is a really great bar!!!! It is like a small town bar. The music is always awesome as is their food. They are very knowledgeable about their beers and will let you taste as many as you need too. You can also get growlers and giant cans for home or gifts. Service is always great and friendly even when they are swamped!

The Aviator

Fantastic food! Had a quick pit stop on our stopover on a flight from Winnipeg, Canada. The menu is easy, straightforward and service is great. Love the “My name is XYZ” name tag stickers on the tables. We had the Bacon Cheddarpeño …

David Kirchner

Great people and wonderful food

Elizabeth Chesbrough

Great place to get a decently priced burger, and their beer selection is phenomenal. 100% recommended. The waiting staff is nice, and very informative on the menu items!!

Craig Burnham

Good food, service excellent

Jay Hanken

Excellent burgers! Nice selection of beer!

Darryl O

Good service, great food. Come before the rush because it's a small place. Awesome burger (Egg and cheese but I added bacon and peanut butter-it's fresh roasted and made in-house


Awesome food and beers

Daniel Barnes

Burgers are ok. Good beer selection. Decent service

Josh Irish

Love this place for the beer selection

Jason Ries

Fantastic burgers and chips. I only visit Grand Forks every few years but this is always on my lunch list.

Chance Mullinix

Best burgers in town. Amazing tap selection. Servers will help you choose a new beer you want to try.

Wendy Carter

Cant beat the burgers here!! Try the butter burger. I promise its worth it.

Dan Soper

Great burgers, fantastic selection of beer, and reasonable prices

Israel Parsons

Such yummy burgers!

Jake Wood

The fresh potato chips are amazing. The burger was good, but nothing special. Great selection of beers. Try a few you can't get at home. Service was very fast.

Travis Vinje

I always enjoy the burgers and beer here. Fast service and burgers always taste great.

Storm Chaser

Fantastic beer selection and Amazing food! You will not be disappointed.

Dillon McGhee

Delicious food, good beer, and an enjoyable environment. What more needs to be said? Would definitely recommend!

Todd Burns

Great service and excellent burgers

Tim McNaughton

great burgers, lots of Kraft beer choices

Claire Davison

Best food and beers in Grand Forks by a land slide. All burgers on the menu are great, and pretzels and cheese sauce is delicious. Lots of quality beer choices. Literally the only sit-down restaurant we go to in GF. Order a tub of homemade peanut butter to go too!!

Raheem D. Rice

Everybody loves the place but the burgers without the buns is like trying to give a whale a tic tac.

Dan Trewartha

Nice fresh burger, homemade fries, good beer, chill atmosphere, nuff said.

Jenni Davis

Not my kind of place. It was more the crowd there than the establishment itself. So loud. Small venue. Servers were attentive bathroom relatively clean. Burgers looked good but didn't stick around. Beer pricy which seems to be the thing in Sioux Falls.

Michelle Buckingham

Great food , good service. Fun atmosphere

Jill Sandhurst

Great beer! Great food!

Kurtis Maendel

It was awesome the music the vibe the food was amazing

Anthony Alicea

Above and beyond what I expected... Food is good, beers on tap are good... Since they have a few locations in Minnesota I'll be visiting with the wife and I sure will recommend my friends to JL Beers.

Burner OG

Always fast and usually friendly!

Alex Erbeck

Greasy, but amazing fries! Best burgers in town. Sauces rock too. Neat environment. Must be 21 I think.

Damion Mitchell

Great beer section, tasty food and friendly service. The beer was cold and delicious. The burgers delicious and served fast. Loved the in house fries choice of seasoning.

Dale Gearke

What's there to say? They have a whole lot of good beers on tap AND they make peanut butter. Friendly staff that knows their beers. I made my own flight of sours, I believe they had five on tap. Many other craft beers as well. Highly recommended.

Jason Glaesemann

The staff are fast and friendly. You can also get your food pretty quick as well. The burgers are ok. It's not the best burger in town but it's not the worst either. It's not a burger that I would drive across town to eat at. I do have a complaint with the menu though. They charge for extras such as jalapenos, onions and lettuce. Yes, they charge .49 cents to add a pinch of shredded lettuce to your burger.

jorge Ramirez

Awesome burgers and beer. Best place to just hang out in town

Jake Wragge

Fantastic selection of craft beers and the burgers are DELICIOUS!

Claude Palmer

This is a great little BBQ and bar. The staff is really friendly and helpful. They kept everything filled up and was there as soon as we needed anything. The portions we're big for the price.

Christopher DeCurtins

Have you ever seen that Seinfeld episode where they wanted to get that amazing soup, but they had to go through the soup nazi to get it? JL Beers is our hometown's version of that. Excellent food, lackluster service; that seems to be the common theme among the 1-star reviews. I've eaten there five times and only once did I get a server who didn't make me feel unwelcome. I've served in the food industry plenty, so I definitely feel for the servers, but they take rudeness to a new level. Plus the stories the reviews tell about JL Beers charging for water are true. Sad to say I've spent my last dollar here.

Hannah Rushing

Awesome bar experience! Accommodating, knowledgeable staff. Cool burger options. (I’m a veg and only one option. Would be cool to have a dope veg burger and GF option on the menu. Black bean burger was fine. Beer selection was ideal!

Nerika Venter

Great burgers and a cool selection of craft beers!

Joyce Rhone

Always a fantastic burger and a great choice of beer!

Amy Nuy

The burgers and fresh made fries are awesome and not greasy and the service was great and super quick

Randy Fasy

Burgers done right wasn't sure about peanut butter on a burger but absolutely delicious went well with the parmesan fries. Service was really helpful

Dan Petersen

This is just an inviting place. Smaller size, but great atmosphere. Had their cheddarpeno burger with fresh cut/made fries and tasty parmesan/garlic soft pretzel. For now it appears you'll need to visit North Dakota though to try it out.

brian hazle

Great place to go and try new beers. Food is fantastic. Nice place to hangout between rushes. I wouldn't recommend lunch or dinner. It gets packed very quickly.

Weston Hunn

Best bang for your buck burgers. They have a huge selection on tap, great quick-lunch spot any day of the week.

Charles D

Great tasting food especially the burgers! Also they have a great selection of beer!


It seems as if they always get something wrong with the order. Green tomatoes on the burger. No salt on the fries. No greetings upon sitting down. Not even a smile. This was our last visit to this establishment. 3 strikes and they're out.

Tammy Thompson

Visited at unchtime and had buffalo chicken sandwich/fries. Food was yummy. Staff was friendly. We asked for ice in our drinks and was told they offer chilled glasses.

Connie Wernke

Great great burgers...great service and wait staff. Best burgers in sioux falls.

Lynne King

First time in a JL Beers. Cannot say enough good things. Great food, great beer selections and very nice wait staff. We will be back for sure!

Blake Lelyk

Could not get enough of these burgers. Cannot wait until the next time I'm in Grand Forks to go back. Burgers were extremely flavourful, and the beer selection was awesome.

Sue Long

Great dive bar style burgers. MUST GET THE CHIPS with any sort of flavoring on them. The beers were also pretty decent and our service was outstanding! We tried a handful of beers, each, before finding one that we wanted to have a full glass of. The server was determined to help us find something we really enjoyed with a great attitude! The prices were good as well. After telling some locals we went here for dinner they also recommended the pretzels! They had a great mix of music on and a decent atmosphere for a Friday night with a group. I also liked being able to see in to the brew room near the back. Overall, unexpectedly great spot!

Anthony Hillman

Great place, great help, phenomenal burgers! I got the slaw burger and out was excellent with dill pickle flavored fries.

Raina Rodenbiker

Love this location, the servers are always helpful with choosing a beer and the burgers are unbeatable!

Brian Allen

Wonderful wonderful service, And a great place to be with Friends and tasteful food

Stuart Rose

Almost 12 years sober until I came here. Totally worth it.

Nathan Sandberg

Burgers,fresh cut fries, and chips done quickly and beautifully.

Jacob Newton

My burger and beer were both amazing. The beer cheese was really good, and the atmosphere was very relaxed. The service was pretty good too. The only downside was that the fries were in super small pieces, but that probably works best for drunk people eating them by the fist-full. They also send postcards for you, which is how I send all my mail.

John Franklin

Had a burger with egg and bacon on it tasted pretty good I was disappointed in the fact that while they have Brazilian kinds of beers their iced tea was from a bottle they said they don't have any room to you no be able to make iced tea


Excellent burger great price.

J JL Kruse

Great burgers, homemade chips & beverages!...also very attentive wait staff! Thanks, JL Beers!!!

Daniel Eng

Best burgers in town that I've had so far. Great variety of beer and a pretty laid-back atmosphere considering the narrow layout. Staff is helpful and service is excellent. Good meet-up spot or date night destination.

Chena Persing

Food was amazing! Love their peanut butter

Omega Net2161

Well worth the detour phenomenal food phenomenal Burgers great choices good environment Etc

Joshua Przybyszewski

Great drink selection, and the burgers are incredible! They have a variety of fries to choose from; recommend the Cajun style if you like that. They also do "beer mail": they give you a post card, you can fill it out, and they'll send it to the address you put. Pretty fun, especially if you're just visiting town! The space is nice; hole-in-the-wall bar with not-too-crowded seating at booths, tables, high-tops, and the bar. The waiters are knowledgeable on the beer menu and can recommend a good brew if you're looking for something new.

Ryan Singer

The service was good, we were created right away and sat. Our food was out in no time during lunch and they had a good selection of brews on tap.

Deb Powers

Great burgers. Flight list not current and substitute was not great. Good beers overall.

Pam Boheman

The Humpty Dumpty burger is delicious, and you can always find a new beer to try here!

Nancy Sandahl

The bergers are always hot and fresh and anyway you like them add an egg or a few different cheeses and a few sauces and you've made your own creation

JL Beers service has always been great. Their food is delicious and made fresh. I have eaten in and carried out. Delicious both ways. I recommend the JLapeno burger. Order the beer cheese with any side. You can't go wrong!

Have eaten here twice. The food and service were great both times. Expect to wait as they can be very busy especially on the weekend but well worth the wait. 40 beers on tap so you are sure to find one you will like. Will be back again.

Great loaded chips and burgers. Good beers too.

Josh Sokolic

Good for burgers and fries and a brew plus they have 1919 root beer. Its not the place to go if you plan on having several beverages, they are kinda spendy but food is good.

Great food. Great beer. The servers really know the beer selection.

Maddysen Hull

Fun place to go for burgers and beers. 21+, quick service!


I love JL Beers. It is a great go to for anyone in Sioux Falls. I love the beer options, and the fact they are regularly rotated! If you're looking for burgers and a beer this is an excellent option.

Ken Clausen

Wonderful place for burgers and beer. Great list of micro and local brews. Their burgers are incredible and their home made chips even better! Try the burger with peanut butter on it. I was skeptical but now I am a beleiver! If you are staying in downtown it is a short walk up Phillips street and you can enjoy the public art along the way. Overall a wonderful place.

Excellent service, food, and beer. Visited on a week night for dinner and a beer. The burgers are awesome, service was excellent, and the beer, solid. We ordered the garlic parmesan fries that were excellent and each ordered a burger. They were super tasty and done perfectly. Our bartender was excellent, super attentive and made great suggestions.

Jeff DeVille

Great burgers and service. Oh yeah and beer.

Mike Humble

It's our go-to date spot. Awesome burgers and a great beer selection. The loaded chips are a bonus.

Joe Haggerty

Awesome. Great service. Great burgers. Great brew....

Grace Gill

They serve burgers til 11p. The burgers are delicious, but definitely try the made on site fresh chips or fries. This is a place willing to accomodate and customize. The person I was with ordered a burger without a bun and asked for eggs to act as the bun:1 on top and one on bottom. They did that and served the burger with a fork and knife. He raved about the coleslaw too.

I had one of the best burgers ever at JL Beers!! I also tried their Passion Fruit Nectar Cider and it was delicious!! Everything was so good, I came back the next night and the bartender remembered my order!! AWESOME food & AWESOME service!!

Joanne Brown

Love the variety of beers and homemade chips

Dakota Hansen

Food is sub par. Come here if you are looking for a wide selection of beers, not if you like well crafted burgers.

Elizabeth Walker

This place is amazing. From out of town and so glad we stopped here. Has the nutter burger and it was out of this world. The staff were awesome and so friendly. The place gets packed but it's worth the wait!!

Tried 2019 Burger Battles Burger from here. Overall, good service. The burger seemed slightly heavy-handed and needed something to balance the heavy flavors.

roman craigle

Great beer, awesome food, great service

Scott Haerbig

Found JL on Yelp and it was excellent. Great burger and beer selection. Will return.

Sorren Airhart

Burgers are not cooked by hand, always done medium well under a timed press. Great flavor but everything was dry. They stated that they salted their own first with sea salt to order, so I figured it wouldn't be hard to salt my order lightly. Received the saltiest fries I'd ever eaten. Other than that, the service was good, and the atmosphere was loud but pleasent.
