Cannot rave about this place enough. Highly suggest checking out JL Beers if you're traveling into Sioux Falls. And if you live in SF and haven't yet, make plans for tonight.

We stopped in sort of by accident, and not wanting to go on the hunt for a restaurant, decided to order some burgers. They were very good, hand made, did not taste frozen, and everything else was on par as well. Friendly staff, cool atmosphere, and tasty food. It's been awhile since we were there so after another visit, I... More

My brother and I went there on a Saturday night and were lucky to get a table right away. The restaurant is on the small side but the burgers are great. I had a Cajun burger and loaded cheese fries.

We were looking for a place that had cocktails and food but it was 11p and we decided to give it a try. They kept the grill on for us and it was wonderful...great service, great food, great beer!! Lots of choices on the beers on tap, the burgers were big and tasty and the fresh chips were really good!!!

Every time I have visited JL beers we have fought to get a table or spot at the bar for even just two people. This can make for a tense and loud atmosphere, but with good reason-JL beers is the goto place for everyone. Excellent food, handcut fries before your eyes, and wide selection of drinks

Love this place. Fun atmosphere, burgers are great, and if you are not in the mood for a beer the root beer is amazing. Just wish there was room for more people inside.

Food and beer was great. Business is very small for the number of patrons. Need a bigger building. Both locations in Sioux Falls could use to be bigger.
