Nice selection of beers. Only burgers and fries on the menu ( might be salads but I didn't look for any) they are very good burgers and fries. Excellent dipping sauces.

I was in Sioux Falls overnight for business and chose JL Beers for dinner because of good reviews. They were right! It's a small place, but wasn't packed early on a Friday night. I sat at the bar and the bartender gave me a list of beers on tap. I'm not normally a beer drinker, but with around 40 beers... More

Excellent unique Burger experience. You gotta have the hand cut potato chips... I love the BBQ style . Beer and soft drinks are both great and very interesting! Must go to in downtown Sioux Falls!

The servers know their beer, test them. And burgers, while limited in selection, not limited on taste, the freshest tasting burger in town. Do your self a favor and order the chips, your day will be complete with these three items.

Definitely worth a visit. Tap beer selection is great, burgers are cheap, simple, quick, and delicious. They serve you a postcard for you to fill out, and they send anywhere for you. Great way to set themselves apart. Service was excellent. If you like simple, cordial, unique, and great craft beers, check it out.

As locals, we've found this place to be consistently good for burgers. They also have a very good selection of local and regional beers. What's not to like!? Fill out a JL Beers postcard with a note to a friend or relative and they'll mail it out free.

Thank Anschutzw
